Tonight, I came home from work and made some dinner. And I have to be honest, I am really getting into that zone of going home to NJ, because I made Chicken and Rice for dinner. Doesn't sound special, but it's one of those things that my Mom always made - and I always loved it! It was good, but I have tried to make it a few times, and it never seems to come out like Mom's.
After dinner, my Men cleaned up the kitchen (man style, which if you don't know what that means...you are probably lucky!), and then we sat and talked about politics, the country and our respective days.
So speaking of my day, I was having one of those weird kind of days where my focus was off, my attention span was incredibly short and it was a good thing that I had a lot of little things to finish up prior to my vacation. Then, I had an awkward run-in with a homeless man downtown (bless his heart!); and almost twisted my ankle (on my own shoes) when I was trying to end the little run-in. Well, in order to salvage anything left from the day, my "me" time was simply taking an extra 1/2 hour at lunch to spend it with a friend. It was good to see her, even better to chat and catch up and I felt much better when I got back to work. Ahhh, the power of girl time.
I'm feeling really good about being ready for my trip to NJ. Plans are made, my packing list is coming together in my mind and I got one last swim suit for The Mayor. If I can keep up with work and finish out this week as planned...this might just be a super fun vacation!
