I have been telling people lately that work is taking over my life. I suppose that is only partly true. I look back over even the past week and I have had many happenings/done many things.
Last Thursday I went with the boy and we watched the Diamondbacks slaughter the Cubs which was pretty fun because Phoenix is FULL of Cubs fans (I know - like everyone from Chicago moves here...crazy).
Last Friday, I took a client to the Cubs vs. Dbacks game - the Cubs took us...boo. That was no fun because Cubs fans are loud - and there were WAY more of them out for the game on Friday than there were on Thursday.
Saturday I did a nice 5 mile work out (on the elliptical of course because of the knee) and then went to a wine tasting with the American Society of Women Accountant's group I am involved in. I ended up buying 2 out of the 6 wines we tried. PARTY! I can't wait to crack those open. Saturday night I went to a silent auction/fundraising dinner for one of my ex-coworker's children. It was a nice evening - great food. Didn't win the raffle and didn't win my bids in the silent auction but that is quite alright - money going towards something good.
Sunday morning I slept in - watched the last episode of The Office with Steve Carell finally (shed a few tears) and then it was off to a wedding. The wedding was like an hour drive away (boo - all the way on the west side of the valley). The venue was gorgeous however. It was the backyard of this house over there. They had a lazy river running through their backyard with a waterfall and some little coves to do "private" stuff in I suppose ;) ;) The back part of the yard even had a trampoline (level with the ground - they dug a hole and the tramp was placed in there). I didn't go on that because I can't get the image of a broken leg out of my mind. My friend Sam's little girl just broke her leg in 2 places just JUMPING on a trampoline! Ew. The wedding was ok. They didn't have alcohol at all - and I think that gives weddings a thumbs down...but I managed.
Monday I went to work and then spent the evening doing errands - Jasper finally got a bath - I cooked a couple meals for lunches for the week and worked out a bit before my massage with my 2nd boyfriend over at the massage place. He's like my therapist/massager-guy all in one. I get my monthly "chat" in with him which is always nice because we don't KNOW each other except from that little massage room so I can share whatever I feel with him. All for the price of my massage! Woo.
Last night I did work until like 6:30 and then had the hour drive home (my client is pretty far out these 2 weeks). On the drive home, my friend said he didn't want to cook and so we decided to go out for chinese food which was delicious - however, that put me home at about 9pm so poor Jasper didn't get a walk or time at the dog park or anything :( We just chilled at home until I crashed.
Tonight I'm going to see the Diamondbacks vs. Rockies with a friend whose boss gave him some "really good tickets" so that should be fun. I am hoping the boyfriend can take Jasper to the park after work but if not I'll take him on a good long walk tonight after the game.
Anyway, I am at work so I should probably get to work (oops). Hope you all have a great day!
