Where Have I Been? (Part II)

I wish it was somewhere exciting.

But it wasn't.

Just here ...

Blogging, unfortunately, has taken a back seat to working for the man, getting frustrated at my kids when they interrupt me while working for the man, throwing back Diet Coke like it's water (isn't it better, though?) to stay awake until three in the a.m. so I can finish the projects blessed upon me by the man, and talking bizness over the phone 'til 12:30 in the a.m. with the man (aka my father-in-law) and hearing him spew his beloved Diet Coke (it runs in the family) everywhere because we're laughing so hard at the dumbest things because we're punchy due to the late hour.

See? Sometimes work can be fun.

(Except until you feel like you've got a hangover from you-know-where (not that I've ever had a hangover but I'd bet you $27 this felt worse than Lindsey Lohan's average Sunday morning "headache") and get your 7:30 a.m. whisper wake up call from a little voice at the side of your bed saying, "Mama?" At least the gracious child had the decency to whisper, right?)

Don't you just hate those wake-up calls? Ethan now escapes from his room at who knows what time and wanders downstairs to devour whatever goodies he can get his hands on. Just this past Saturday he ate an entire half-dozen box of Dunkin Donuts- then came upstairs to wake us up, covered in chocolate. I guess he's destined to be in law enforcement.

BTW, at least you drink Diet Coke. I drink regular Coke like it's going out of style and I'm sure I have about a dozen teeth ready to rot out of my skull. But it's sooooo good!

Look at the task master puttin you to work. Welcome to the family Cel, it's about time you're doing the dirty work--holding coffee tables together for hours and hours, waiting for the glue to dry.
Be grateful for your task.

Cel,
Embrace the massive amounts of soda consumption. It's all part of joining the Christensen family. You should know this 5 years later!

You are all bizness these days! You should use one of those unlimited vacation days STAT!

Okay we're coming June 5-22 and the whole month of August, give or take a few days! I decided to stay a few days before and after the cruise because Cody is taking boards and I didn't want to be bored!

hey what kind of work are you doing? Techy stuff?

I'm jealous that you are still working and keeping your skills up.!

Celia hi! I found your blog through your sister's blog. Remember when we traveled Europe with Paul Dozier and Ryan What-his-name? Remember when I was the most annoying/sleepy/hungry travel companion of all time? Maybe we should call the girls of OAS and schedule a reunion.

XOXO

I know the hangover feeling....there are some days I'm convinced that Kate is waking me up at some undecent hour, and it is actually 730....and then she actually needs breakfast. Geesh, Kate...but the biggest guilt trip though is when I finally come to and roll my trash out of bed, only to discover kate playing quietly on my floor, waiting for me to wake up. It makes me a little teary actually just typing it!

But work your "A" off now, and Bermuda will be that much sweeter!!
