Luckily, I'm only hours away from flying off to London!
Here's how the last 10 days have gone...
Last weekend: drove to NJ to give my grandmother my old car, take her to DMV to do lots of fun DMV stuff, and eat dinner (at 2:00, of course) before turning around and driving home.
(side note: we're having work done on our house while we're away...so we're living in a "studio house" right now...it is 100% chaos...you have to crawl over our bed to get to the couch...it makes me insane! So after a crazy day with my crazy family, we came home to a crazy house...SERENITY NOW!)
Last week: work plus errands, plus working on the single girl, plus trying to get ready for vacation
Friday: leave work early, but not early enough to avoid holiday traffic. Took about 1 bazillion hours to get to NJ. Then late dinner with mom, super late visit with friends, return to mom's house to find ourselves locked out...put a lot of effort into not being snarky with mom. Drove to hotel. Got denied! (Seriously?)...put a lot of effort into not throwing myself onto the floor and having a temper tantrum. Drove to other hotel and finally fell asleep way past my bedtime. Slept for 2 hours. Woken up by freight train...no wait, it was just my mom snoring...started to make loud noises like slamming a glass down on the end table to wake her up...failed but by then I was wide awake from all my efforts. (Seriously?)
Saturday: Breakfast with BFF, bridal shower for other BFF, fueled up with Chick-Fil-A, drove back to CT
Today: packed suitcase, put a lot of effort into staying awake
Somewhere in the middle of all that: pieced my dGS quilt top (may still need borders to fatten it up...)
So I'm off for a week of visiting friends, raiding Liberty, and generally acting very British.
(That's code for "I'll be drinking lots of tea and using words like
brilliant!") Hopefully by the time I return, I'll be able to type in full sentences again! Cheerio!!
