What a long 2 weeks it has been...

I have to say the last two weeks have seemed incredibly long to me...as if someone stuck an extra four days in the middle of each one.  We started last week on a high note with a fun Memorial Day Celebration.  I love having a house full of friends and family and it was a wonderful way to start the week...then work happened.

Not to say that I don't love my job, because I do, but when you try to cram 5 days of work into 4 it never seems to work.  Not to mention, I got some very good, positive news from work last week but that same very good, positive news also has made my mind practically explode as I try to wrap my mind around what it means for my career.  Honestly, had I know this change was coming, I would have taken a couple of days off after Memorial Day to just clear out the filing cabinet in my head!  Now, I am flying by the seat of my pants and trying to organize twice as much as before.  Luckily I work with a great team of women who are supportive and I am leaning hard on their experience and expertise! I also have a very good friend who is literally an organizing guru and I shall be "borrowing" some of their time for literal organizing.

This past weekend flew by #1 because I worked an event for my job on Saturday morning (and also picked up 2 gorgeous original art pieces that I need to share in another post) and my little guy was sick on Sunday.  He was also sick on Monday with a fever and just felt bad all over so that kind of threw me into a funk and started the week on shaky ground.  Thankfully, today he seems back to his 150% self.  It is a challenge I am still not quite comfortable with when either of my boys is sick and I have to work.  That is my #singlemom  challenge I think...well, that and figuring out just when to grocery shop. 

So, chalk this up to the most boring blog post ever but the past week or so have been crammed full of work, house cleaning, sleeping, work, church, the boys, cooking, laundry and a plethora of other "exciting" things!  I promise my next post will be more fun...maybe about my recent trip to Kiawah Island and my first trip to the magical Angel Oak on James Island? 

I have done some good reading this past week, though, which is rare in my life these days.  It seems since my world changed a few years ago I lost the ability to read a book. Books have always been an escape for me and I am so happy to finally be able to lose myself in one again.  Though right now, I seem to have several going at once!  Oh, and I can no longer stay up all night reading...this whole grow up working girl thing has cut into that.  :-)

Here's to a week filled with smiles and days sprinkled with sparkles!


  1. LOVE the pic in this post!!! So glad your sweet boy is back to good!
    It's so funny we kind of met over books - I so rarely read at all, anymore, either! :-P

  2. I'm not a single mom but am working outside of the home for the first time in years. It's an adjustment for sure. Your work news sounds exciting!


Thank you for stopping by...leave a little of your sparkle before you go!
