Oy – this week has been a doozy. The attitude coming from my four year old, plus work and my normal anxiety has just been off the charts this week. I had grand plans of posting all of my baking recipes, updates from past life stuff, but well, I didn’t do any of that.
Last night was the NFL draft – normally I go out with some girlfriends and drink margaritas and eat cheese dip, and I didn’t get to do that yesterday. And for some reason, that really stung. It was the worst “woe is me” moment I’ve had during all of this. And I know it’s a first world problem, but it truly is one of the things I look forward to the most. Luckily, Robyn live-texted the draft with me, and two AU guys got drafted in the first round (don’t even talk to me about the Packers QB pick, I don’t want to go there), and we got wings and fries. It was a good time, but I still felt pretty sad.
Any way a few things to take away the sadness –
// WWOZ in New Orleans is broadcasting Jazz Fest in place, and playing a bunch of old sets from previous Jazz Fests. I plan on doing a lot of patio sitting this weekend and listening.
// I bought this shirt from Yellow Hammer Creative – they are doing a run on shirts to support a bunch of local places that could use the help. 50% of the proceeds are going to the actual place. I love Rojo, and a shirt with a luchador on it definitely screams Laura.
// I think I’m going to pull the trigger and buy this throwing burrito game. I don’t know why I don’t already have a game that involves throwing burritos, but I think that should change asap.
// We found an old Longhorn Steakhouse gift card in our junk drawer – B called and there’s $100 on that thing! Plus you can use it there or Olive Garden or Seasons 52. We’re leaning toward Seasons 52 for dinner tonight!
I hope y’all have had a good week and are getting in some sunshine today!
