Last week at work was kind of a whirl wind.
I lost my work husband theFriday before, and last week was my first real week without him. I honestly didn’t know how hard it was going to be without him there. And I know that sounds weird, like, hey Laura, he was just a co-worker. But it was more than that. We’d spent every weekday together, and some weekend days together; talking about our families, learning about each other, bitching about our jobs. And then that abruptly ends, so yeah a girl is going to cry at work. Maybe more than once. Maybe like three times.
I’m an emotional human being. I’ve accepted it.
So there were a few things last week I needed to make sure I survived last week.
One was dinner with my girlfriend, Caitlin, at Cocina Superior where we gorged on El Chango’s, guac, and enchiladas.
Last week, I also won an award at work: The Extra Mile Award. Which was pretty nice, especially when they handed me $100 cash in my hand!
It’s a little blurry —sorry, I was trying not to be too obvious when I was snapping the picture. Hey, I’m allowed to be a little proud of my award.
Or bribe…either way, I still got $100.
Then, since the blog hasn’t seen enough of my sweet sweet Stell-dog, I mean just look at this face!!! How can you hate?!
This is pretty much the look I get when I take too many pictures of her. It’s like, “Mom, please leave me alone and let me lay on Daddy in peace, please!!”
She never gets it though.
I don’t give in to dog demands.
