It has been...

a hellish couple of weeks at work. The moment our GM walked out the door to the time he came back-- it was INSANE. We did so many funerals, I can't even remember family names. And that is awful... as I like giving everyone really personal service. It wasn't because he was gone, or that he goes above and beyond when he is there.. it is because when anyone mentions the words "I am going on a vacation on (insert day here) through (insert day here)"... God throws her weight around, and people die. Its just that simple.

But *deep breath* its a new week... and.... I it is going to be FINE.

We had a wonderful weekend.. on Friday I went to lunch with my sisters and mom and had a wonderful time. Went to The Palms downtown..one of my favorite places. The service was A+ as always, and the food was deeeelish! Saturday we went to a couple parties had fun.. Sunday was Irish Fest and it was HOT AS HELL. I couldn't even really enjoy the music... as I was just so uncomfortable. At least I got to spend some time with my family-- that was nice!

Now... back to work. We are staying at home this next weekend and I am SO thankful. I just want to chill.. maybe watch a movie.. just be quiet.
This is a picture of my nieces, nephews, Mic and I. I don't know if you can tell from the picture just how much pain I am in with the sunburn on my face-- and that I am DRIPPING sweat. Amy-- be glad you didn't come down this year. I find it ironic that the one festival in Milwaukee for the Irish (the whitest people on this earth) is during the hottest, sunniest month of the year. I think they just want to make a profit on sunscreen.

You must have added the photo later...at first I thought, "how weird they all have green on." And then I realized, "OH! Irishfest!" I would have been sitting there sweating with you if I could have.
