This was an interesting week in many ways. Some good, some bad, some weird.
Here are my thoughts.
As I mentioned, Miss Teddy Ruxbin has been staying with us this week. It's a good thing she is so stinking adorable and sweet, because she is as crazy as she is adorable. She has been following me everywhere I go and I have tripped over her little body about 29 times. I know one little lady (Sonny, not me) who is probably ready to resume her throne as queen of the Peters castle.
Poor hubby. He started the week working 10s. The 10s turned into 12s. The 12s turned into 14s. I don't even know what to say when I pick him up from work. "Hey honey. So uhh, how was your day??"
[Alice in Wonderland]
We watched Alice in Wonderland (Tim Burton version) one night this week. I love this movie. Ryan and I were talking about all the "fun words" in the flick like Jabberwocky, Bandersnatch, Vorpal Sword, Futterwacken, and Frabjous Day
Was good this week. I was busy, productive, and felt as if I really contributed. Let's just say I don't always feel that way.
I have one more trip. For the last four weeks I have been home one and traveling the next (you can read about my experiences at Fort Huachuca here and here and also about Washington, D.C.). It is really starting to wear on me. On Sunday, the saga continues as I head to Groton, Connecticut for the week to validate one of our boats. I can't wait to be on the boat for 10+ hours a day, in the East Coast heat and humidity, crawling through the tiny and awkward spaces in my coveralls. Can you feel the sarcasm?
The fall semester starts in 17 days. I got my Engineering Statistics textbook in the mail on Tuesday and wanted to cry after looking at the first chapter. Enough said.
[Tiffer & Ryan]
Tiffanie and her hubby, Ryan will be here in 11 days. Yup, 11 days!! I have an itinerary all planned out to maximize their stay and experience in Washington. I cannot wait!
Since the Spring semester ended in May, I have been reading like a mad woman. So far, I have read The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest (Stieg Larsson series); House Rules (Jodi Picoult); The Other Daughter (Lisa Gardner); The Help (Kathryn Stockett); The Hunger Games Trilogy: The Hunger Games, Catching Fire, Mockingjay (Suzanne Collins); and just finished Ape House (Sara Gruen).
Yesterday while eating my lunch I felt some sneezles coming on. I think I must be allergic to work. Anyway, when I got to my bag-o-carrots, the sneezles came. There is no way to avoid pain while sneezing and eating or swallowing carrots. No way.
I think its good to reflect every now and again.
And lucky you.
You get to read about it.
