where in the world are the castrodales?

Don't worry, we're still alive.

I honestly don't think "busy" even begins to describe what our (my) life has been like over the last two weeks. All of a sudden, I'm working 10-12 hour days, bringing stuff home on the weekend and dreaming about people/software/documents/projects at work. I've consumed more junk food (i.e. coffee for breakfast, pizza for lunch, milkshakes for dinner) than I have since college. I fell asleep last night at 9:15 and didn't open my eyes until 10:30 this morning. That's my body's way of saying, "CALM DOWN! I CAN'T TAKE IT ANYMORE!!"

So, needless to say, blogging hasn't been at the top of my list, courtesy of my promotion/new account at work. Don't get me wrong, the promotion is amazing, flattering and a complete blessing, but I miss the boy and my face won't stop breaking out. But really, even in the craziness, I'm thankful for a job, thankful for the ability to stay busy, and thankful for a company that treats its people well. That makes things a lot better. And I'm very thankful for a husband that knows how to cook, clean, do laundry and not pout when his wifey gets home at 9:30. That makes a world of difference.

So this weekend we're having a little fun. We took it easy this morning and in a few hours, we're off to play with my cousins for the evening to give their mom and dad a date night. Tomorrow is the NFL fantasy football draft, so while Andrew's off playing with my dad and their buddies, mom and I have big plans to do a little window shopping (and maybe get a pedicure, but don't tell Andrew!). Then, I just have to plow through one more week of work before a 3-day weekend that will most likely be spent lounging on the beach.

It's my favorite day of the week. I like it because you can say, "Tomorrow's Friday!" and get really excited about it. Right now I'm sitting at a Caribou in Greensboro waiting for Martha to get here. She's departing this weekend and I wanted one last hoorah before that happened. So we decided to meet for coffee half way. Only I made record, Super Man time and I've been here for the last 45 minutes waiting for her to get here. No worries though, because I have enjoyed the time to catch up on email.

Back to Thursday. Isn't it great? Friday is wonderful in its own right, with no explanation. Monday just gets two thumbs down. Tuesday is pretty horrible, too because you're still recovering from Monday but you're not close enough to Friday to make it feel worth it. And Wednesday is hump day, which I guess is cool, but Thursday wins, hands down.

In case you were wondering.

Also, there's a store across the street that is temporarily a Halloween Store. I hate that. I don't really know why, but seasonal stores are kind of annoying to me. What's the point of letting a building sit empty for 10 months, when you could just make it easy and put a holiday store there. They could sell any holiday stuff (Valentine's day, St. Patrick's day, 4th of July, Halloween, Christmas....) all year round. I think people would really like that. I would love it. Christmas any time I want? Heck yeah.

Well there's your random thought(s) for the day. And there's Martha.

a quick update/random babble

1. Andrew's finished with classes! He rocked out the second sessions as well, with 2 A's. Such a genius he is.
2. Work = crazy. Hence the lack of blogging. 10-12 hour days = CRASHING when I get home. Sorry, folks.
3. The weekend with the girls was perfect. It was such a nice little escape. So great, in fact, that those of us who aren't moving back to the other side of the world (I'm bitter about that, by the way, you big tree (Tha, if you get that reference, I'll know for sure that we're soul mates!)) have decided to make it a monthly thing. The third Friday of the month is now ladies' night. Hollerrr.
4. For dinner, I had frosted mini wheats, dry, and 3 chocolate chip cookies. Can I have my life back, please? Good heavens..
5. I'm watching You've Got Mail right now and I think it's one of my favorites. It's a great Christmas movie. I should make a note of that for when it's time to update the Holiday Netflix Queue.
6. I always joked with Martha when she was away that I needed a life-size cut out of her so that I wouldn't feel lonely. Guess what she brought me?
7. I feel the need to take a day off from work just for the sake of having a day off. I should look into that.
8. I want a dog.
9. I'm reading two books simultaneously, which I thought was a good idea. But when I have time to read, I can't choose, and so I don't read either. Dilemma.
10. Mom, we really need to go see My Sister's Keeper. For real this time.
11. My little brother is moving to COLLEGE in 2 weeks!
12. When I'm rich, I'm going to take two-week vacations, because it takes almost a full week to actually get into vacation mode. Who's with me?
13. My birthday balloons are still inflated.

That's all she wrote. Love Love!
