Take a Deeeeeep Breath

July 11, 2011

I’m back!

Sorry to leave y’all hanging for a while…it has been a BUSY couple of days.  My grandmother’s funeral was on Friday—thank you again for all of your sweet comments, e-mails, texts, etc.  Y’all are the best.  :-)  The funeral was really beautiful.  In the 60’s, my grandmother played Mimi in La Boheme, and at the funeral, they actually played a recording of my grandmother performing one of her songs.  It took my breath away—just beautiful! 

On Saturday, we had a 6am flight out of Louisiana, which made for a very early morning.  Up at 4:45, back in PA by 5pm…ugh. 

It feels really good to be back home…but we’re coming to the strange realization that this will only be our “home” for another couple of weeks.  Our schedule is going to be crazy…here’s what’s going down:

Monday-Thursday: pack up house

Friday: close on Huntsville house (from PA; we’re not going down for the closing)

Saturday: drive to Pittsburgh for 6am Sunday flight

Sunday: fly to Oregon for vacay with Ryan’s family

Thursday: return from Oregon; continue packing

Then…move!

Our movers haven’t given us a definite date yet, but they’ll be coming sometime around the 24th-27th, and then we’ll drive down with the dogs a few days later.

It’s going to be a crazy couple of weeks.  Best to just hold on…

With all of the traveling/lack of sleep/stress going on in my life right now, it’s not surprising that I’ve been feeling a little under the weather.  I just feel a little achy and tired…but I really don’t want it to turn into anything more.  I can’t afford to get sick right now!

Enter: green monster.  These bad boys are always good at kicking me into high health mode:

I’m also enjoying a caffeine fix from this awesome mug that my friend Erin gave me as a going-away present:

How could that not brighten your morning?

Have a great Monday!

    Great mug! Good luck with these crazy next few weeks. You’re really lucky you have a place for the dogs on all your trips — we’re always at a loss for what to do with Sadie and dont travel nearly enough as a result!

      Yeah, we have a great place to board them– out in the country with a dog POOL (?!?) for them to swim in and everything. Even so, I still feel really guilty leaving them 😦

    It’s a must, although the tissue box should never be too far out of reach.
