Ready to Regroup

This week has been TOUGH. There's just no way around it. I think the combination of the time-change, coming back from vacation, the crazy weather we're having and oh yeah- almost being in my third trimester alllllll caught up to me at once. I haven't slept well at all lately and if you have seen me this week- you would know that's the truth ;) Bags under my eyes and a ponytail every day this week at work... I just embraced it and hoped my coworkers weren't too scared of me.
And even though it's been an annoying, emotional week things could be a lot worse. There was a 12-car accident this week on the bridge that I take home every day. The road was shut down for hours, a car went into the river and I don't know how many people were injured (or worse). I feel very fortunate that I wasn't in the wreck or affected by it at all- and it really makes you rethink the little things you might have been complaining about an hour earlier. This life is truly a blessing and I can't take that for granted.

So I'm ready for this weekend and for some regrouping. Ready to shake off this week's slump and get on with it. Spending time with family and friends, getting things back in order and hopefully starting on a very long baby to-do list. All of the things that I've been saying, "I'll do that after vacation" suddenly feel very, very pressing. Even though I know there is still a good amount of time to get things done, I am ready to chip away at the to-do's and get a little sanity and order back in my life. Post-vacation chaos is real, folks.
At least we always have sports- right? :) Did everyone join in the March Madness bracket fun this year? The first couple of days of the tournament are generally pretty fun in our office. We have a TV in the common area just outside my office so it's on all day for score updates. Today my boss is buying everyone lunch so we can eat and watch some hoops as a mid-day break, which will be nice. I've got Kansas, Oklahoma, UNC and Michigan State as my final four- what about you all??

  1. My week wasn't quite like yours but it have a few moments of OFF times. So sad to hear about the pile up but so glad you weren't effected, those things really can put life into perspective right?

    Good luck getting all your 'after vacation' work done. We're in the middle of that with our after February planning/packing for our trip and move. Days are so fast now it seems, haha.

    WOOHOO March Madness, such a fun time. We have a TV in our office too and yesterday it was fun listening to the games while we worked. How fun your boss is buying y'all lunch, nice to have a different atmosphere right? We have a very similar Final Four, but I have UVA.

  3. It really is amazing how the things that seem so terrible really get into perspective when something terrible happens. Hopefully, everybody that was involved in the accident can make a quick recovery!
    I can't believe that you're almost in the third trimester! I hope that you have a great weekend getting stuff done this weekend!

  4. I cannot believe I'm actually doing well in this bracket so far, ha! I totally guessed on most of them. I looked at scores and did a little research but still- I'm generally clueless! ;) I picked Kansas, Oregon, Kentucky and UVA in my final 4! We'll see!! I hope you guys can cross lots of items off your lists this weekend and enjoy yourselves :) see you soon!

  7. That's horrible about that wreck!! Hope you are able to get some stuff done this weekend and feel back on track :) I didn't fill out a bracket this year since sadly my team (UofL) cannot participate. It's still fun to watch some of the games though!

  8. Isn't is crazy how intense the post-vacation blues and chaos can be?! I dread it every single time I miss work for any reason. I have Kansas, Oklahoma, UNC, and UVA in my final four! I'm pulling hard for UVA (my dad went there and we used to have a place in Charlottesville), but I chose Kansas to win it all. Head over the heart this time. :( I hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend!

  9. The last trimester was hard for me as far as sleep goes but it was still way better sleep than when K showed up.

    Enjoy your weekend, baby list making is fun!

  12. Not a basketball fan but many of the games were played in stl so there's a lot of hype. Hope your bracket turns out in your favor.

  15. this has been a rough week for me too and i don't have the excuse of growing a human ;) and that wreck - my brother texted me about it. so awful. stopped traffic on bridges is one of my worst nightmares, especially at rush hour. i'm always terrified of getting into an accident and going right into the river.

  16. oh gosh, that is horrible about the accident. KC and I were at lunch and complaining (in a jokey way) about the traffic coming home and it turned out to be because of this huge accident and this car was completely totaled and it really made us shut up and take stock, you know? hope you had a relaxing weekend!

  17. We have the same final 4! It's a shame Michigan State didn't make it! I love March Madness I always have a friendly wager with the boyfriend. He said Kentucky was going to beat IU, so I get dinner and movie! Score! It's funny cause he's an IU fan...oh well...
