Friday Night Leftovers

  • Wow. I haven't posted all week. Not because I meant to, but because things have been so crazy this week. I've been really busy at work, but also prepping for our block party tomorrow.
  • I've got pretty much everything in place for the party, which is exciting. Lots of food, drinks, a bounce house, and even the ice cream truck is coming.
  • I'm glad that my kids are of the age that they will really enjoy it, because if not, some of the planning headaches wouldn't have been worth it.
  • One of the reasons that this week has been so insane is because on of my guys is on vacation this week, and the guy that used to back him up quit about two weeks ago. So I haven't had time to find a replacement (and even if I did, there is a hiring freeze on now) so I'm his back up. And wow. Does this guy deal with a lot of crap on a daily basis! I'm totally going to get a welcome back balloon and treats to have at his desk when he returns next week.
  • We don't have a big Father's Day plan, but I did get us tickets to see the new Superman movie tonight - Aaron has been looking forward to it for a while.
  • On Father's day morning, I'm swimming in a big open water race - which will be my first open water swim 'race' in years. I'm excited. The kids expect me to win. I expect to finish.
  • My mom is coming for the weekend to see all of this, which is great.
  • Last year, Aaron and I went to some AAA baseball games, and they had these things that were basically Capri Sun juice packs but with alcohol in them. As we were sitting outside the other night, Aaron remembered them and said we should get some. But we had no idea what they were called. Well, I found them and we got some and yep. Going to be a perfect summer drink. 
  • It's been raining NON stop here for the past few weeks. We'll get a day or two of sun, and thankfully we have had at least one good day on the weekends. I've been freaking out that the block party would get rained out, but tomorrow we will have full sun and 75 degrees! Not too hot not to cold. Perfect.
  • And I have a mini-vacation to look forward to - after work on Wendsday, I'm going to Falmouth and staying at a friends house for a couple nights. First night all by myself, next night with a girlfriend. And thankfully, the weather looks good! My plan is to sleep in and then sit on the beach, drinking a few pops and reading.

I've seen those Capri sun things. They look good.

I hope you have a great block party! I know that it was a lot of work for you.
