… shaking it off… and heading out in search of balance…

well, at some point i hope to be able to post on a regular basis… but dang it’s been another stressful week!

but the difference is, this week also had some high points!

so let’s just get to it…

the other day at work i found out our firm had a suite at the blazer game… obviously i accepted the invitation to join everyone!

the view was pretty decent…

the spread was really fun…

nacho bar

pasta salad, veggie tray, and sw chicken wraps

the wraps were really good

gold fish snack mix, popcorn, and dessert tray

we even had binoculars on our chairs

it was a pretty suite night!!!

one could certainly get used to living the high life!

oh but that was NOT in the cards for me… the other morning, i rolled myself out of bed, complaining b/c i did not want to go to the gym, dragging and grumbling i opened the door… to a lake in my front yard!!

apparently our water main busted and had been filling up the yard and running down the street all night… that’s one way to get out of going to the gym!

we shut the water off at the curb and called the plumbers…

consoled myself with a green monster…

$2,000 later…

we have a new water main (can you see the old nasty one next to it??)… but are still waiting for the inspection before we can backfill it all…

definitely a LOW point!!

at least we’ve had some good food!

greens… literally…

i had some green veggies i needed to use up or suffer the agony of food gone bad

broc, asparagus, edamame, brussells with italian seasoning, garlic powder, and sea salt

plus a boca burger, sandwich thin, feta spread, dijon, dill pickle

and a dirty rugby player for dessert…

isn’t the teen a lil dreamboat in the making!?!?!

i guess we could sit around and sulk about the stream of misfortune and CRAPOLA we’ve all been enduring lately, but nahhhhh…

this weekend we’re busy busy busy… it’s ANNE’S BIRTHDAY WEEKEND Y’ALL!!!!!

our friend kim is in town from LA, and of course found time for snuggling

indulging in smoothies (tropical green and chocolate/cherry)

watching the teen play rugby…

and NOW, we’re off to the birthday party. it’ll make for quite possibly the best post ever… but for now, i’ll leave you with a hint as to the nature of the festivities…

    love the pic of Gram that made it in the background šŸ™‚ I know you did that on purpose!

  2. I was going to say “Let the Force Be With You,” but somehow I don’t think that’s right.

    You went to the Blazer game?! P to the D is jealoussssss!

  3. 1. my favorite part of sitting in the box seats at the blazers is the waiters who take your beer order. i have priorities.
    2. now i’m terrified our water main will break. our house likes having issues related to water.

  4. Oh Captain Janeway how I miss thee…and Seven, my Borg girl crush…sigh…

    Oh, and what was up with all the empty seats in the Blazer box?? Come on, hook a Portland sister up..or two…Mama Pea would gladly come along. šŸ™‚

  5. Wait, who is this Kelly that knows who Captain Janeway and Seven of Nine are? She could be my new best friend!

  6. Thanks for de-lurking on my blog!! Love it! Sadly I didn’t get much chance to post from home but there will most definitely be a recap of my trip coming soon!

    Happy I got to find your blog!
