Sorry I missed our coffee date last Friday! So glad you could join me today though.
If we were having coffee today, I would probably lament to you about my day job. When it rains, it pours it seems. I’ll go along a while with no emergencies and not a lot going on and then, BAM, everyone has an emergency at the same time. And naturally right before I have a trial! That’s what last week was like. On Wednesday, I was up until about 3am working on pleadings, went to bed for 2 1/2 hours and then was up again to be on a conference call with the client at 6am. Yuck.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that we had Baby J’s 9-month photos taken the other day, and from the previews the photographer has posted, they look great! A couple weeks ago I had one of those slap-my-forehead “duh” moments. Why on earth wasn’t I making a more concerted effort to get photo outfits made for the kids? I always purchase the images from our sessions, which means I can use them here to show off their outfits! Duh, Katie! So I burned some midnight oil last week and finished outfits for all three in time for our photo session. I didn’t get my planned outfit done because the aforementioned client emergency got in the way.
If we were having coffee, I would tell you that my kids only have 2 weeks left of their summer session of PDO/Preschool and then they’re off for 3 weeks. I’m kind of dreading it. It may sound nice for kids to be off for 3 weeks, but my kids are used to the structure of “school” and seeing their friends and teachers on a regular basis. It gets them out of the house and doing something different and interesting. Without that, they pretty much just spend the day picking at each other and driving us and my mother-in-law batty. Thankfully, the start of fall semester was moved up 3 weeks this year because summer break used to be 6 weeks. Oy, those were painful.
Anyway, keeping it short today. If we were having coffee, what would you tell me?
