Monday night I left work at 7:30pm and continued to work at home until 12:30am. I took one break to heat up some soup. Tuesday night I worked at the office until 9pm.

I’m tired. I’m going to bed.


girl’s weekend

This weekend, I went to Scottsdale, AZ with my mom and sis for a little mother/daughter quality time. This is our third year going to Arizona for a girl’s weekend – I’d say it’s becoming a tradition!

As always, we had a fantastic time. We didn’t “do” much – but that’s the beauty of it. The purpose of the trip is to spend time together – just the three of us. We don’t go to Scottsdale to be tourists; we go there to be with each other.

You may be thinking, why do you have to go all the way to Arizona to spend time together? Because in Arizona we can control the variables. Nobody has to make dinner. Nobody has to run errands. And we get to choose the attendees – just the three of us. We can give each other our complete, undivided attention. We aren’t clouded by the distractions of daily life.

This weekend, we sun-bathed by the pool. We ate and drank. And we talked and laughed, a lot. To some, this might seem like a boring trip. To us, it was perfect. I feel so blessed to have such a wonderful mother and sister, and I feel so lucky to have spent another special weekend with them.


today is a good day because…

  • The sun is out in Seattle.
  • Derek is moving in with me today – hooray!
  • I’m flying to Scottsdale, AZ this evening with my mom and sis for our annual girl’s weekend.
  • My favorite work coffee mug was in the cupboard this morning – someone has been hording it for the last 3 weeks.

a blog for anyone, but mostly for me.
