I’ve been spoiled for most of 2013. Although my job is never slack by any means, all of my responsibilities clipped along at a reasonable pace. That’s been ramping up as we march towards 3rd quarter, and last week was pretty hellish to say the least.
That’s not the reason for my absence from the blog though, I got a last minute deal on a plane ticket to go to North Carolina and visit family for father’s day weekend.
There was a lot of this.
One day of that.
My Dad proved to me once again that he has a better social life than I do and knows where all the cool places are, whereas I’m like “yeah, um we sit on our couch and make veggie tacos and play video games… crazy pants!”
It was a nice trip, and even though it was the worst time for me to leave work for a long weekend… I felt like I really needed the break. Unfortunately it left a little twinge of homesickness for NC feeling a lot worse. Going back for a while made me want to live there even more, so I need to take some time and process that.
For now I need to put on my big girl pants and get back to work. No Simon updates – he got a training ride on Friday but has had two days off on each side of that ride… so no telling what kind of freshy fresh horse I’ll see when I get today. Still, I’m excited to go ride and hoping he’ll help me get out of this little funk.
