Friday randomness

Thank you for reading and you are forewarned that this will be very random ! The week was a bit crazy with a 3 day conference, restaurant eating, early mornings, late nights and a work crisis.

Now that it is Friday Saturday morning, some random thoughts with regards to the week……

  • I loved connecting with my colleagues. I work internationally and spend so much time in front of the computer and on the phone, that a bit of face time was welcomed. I work with such great people and we hardly ever see each other.
  • I missed my kids & hubby. I was up at 6, out of the house by 7:30, home at midnight… three days strait. So I was so happy to see my kids at dinner Thursday and have them chat about their week. And actually see my husband rather than going to bed when he is already asleep.
  • I was craving nature ! I was getting stir crazy being inside several days strait. I was so happy to be able to run outside Friday, despite the chilly/rainy fall weather.
  • I am lucky. My husband cooks, knows how to anticipate meals, and makes sure the house is in decent shape while I am not here.
  • Managing tough situations makes me grow as a person. In the middle of my conference I had a very difficult situation to manage. Well I survived. As my mom says “you just do what you have to do”. And somehow, bad situations are never as bad as I think they will be.
  • Too many glasses of wine and dessert over several days makes me very sluggish. I was so slow when I ran Friday, as compared to what was on my marathon training plan. As much as I love the travel and the conferences, I am always happy to get back to my regular eating & sleeping routine.

Besides the above photo, I only took 2 other photos all week. My parking spot in the public parking garage, to help me remember where my car was !

I am now officially on vacation for the next week, with way too much on my to do list !

How was your week ? Do you thrive on routine or like constant variety at work ?

    I love quiche! Do you have an easy recipe? Getting outside always make me feel so much better too. My job has been so stressful now for well over a year. I run a specialty finance company and there are many days when I think “Is this worth is?” I use the same saying your Mom does, a lot! I hope you have a wonderful week of vacation.

      I have a very easy recipe for quiche, I will post it soon, it is by far one of my easiest go to recipes. I hear you about stressful jobs… I have been in the corporate world for almost 20 years and I often ask myself is it worth it….
