There is so much traveling going on right now that I can't even keep my head straight. Mike got put on a huge project for work. His reward? Traveling to Chicago basically every single Monday through Friday for the next four months. It is great for his career, and he really deserves this huge opportunity, so I am trying not to be a baby about it. I know I have said before how I love my alone time, but come on. This is a tiny bit too much. Plus, the new responsibility comes with a Blackberry, so even when we are together, we are not quite together. I haven't flushed it down the toilet yet, and we are powering through. I am just learning to resort back to my single roots.
I saw Mike on Tuesday of last week when he left for Chicago. I then left for Girls' Ski Trip at 2pm on Friday, ten hours before he returned home. I got home Monday, saw him for the 25 minutes it took me to drive him to the airport and have not laid eyes on him since. He should be landing in about two hours, then we have to leave for Dallas to go to his friend's wedding tomorrow at noon. On top of it, things have been insane for me at work, too, and any time I have had not writing boring work stuff has been spent promising my dog that his life of being spoiled rotten with walks and constant attention will return shortly. The moral of all of this whining is that I promise to be back with more stories early next week. Here are some teasers:
I have about five stories from Girls' Ski Trip, including one where I was an actual rock star in Breckenridge for a fleeting few minutes. I'm serious.
I am up for a new job at work. A crossroads if you will, and there are some really odd elements to it all.
More about how Mike and I have become two ships passing in the night.
And more about my quest to be a tall skinny hottie even if it kills me.
So, have a great weekend. I will be in Dallas, where I heard it is supposed to be SNOWING tomorrow. How unfair is that? I think it actually follows me. In the meantime, check out some great stories from That Girl From Shallotte. I promise you won't be disappointed. She is my favorite columnist/blogger.
See you all back here on Monday.
