Back in town...

Pin It Now!

So I’m a bad blogger. A very bad blogger.

While you, my lovely readers, were checking my blog, to no avail.

I was gone. Sunning myself in the lovely Mayan Riviera. Sorry guys. ;)

And ‘twas a lovely welcome back to work I received yesterday. First, I made the mistake of having a cup of coffee before bed Sunday night (after, of course, leaving all the dishes on the counter….I came back from vacation only to find that ANTS had moved in in the meantime. Icky. I bleached the little bastards…heehee). So I didn’t sleep Sunday night. It took until 2:30 in the morning to fall asleep, and then I kept waking up. Of course, once it was time to actually get up, I reset my alarm three times and hence went to work with wet hair.

Once I got to work, I managed to do a full-on wipe-out in the front lobby of our building. Nice. The very nice commissionaire (like a security guard, but usually older and friendlier, at least in my building) asked me over and over again if I was okay. I said I was, as a hobbled over to the elevator (for those of you who read my elevator rant…that’s how much my ankle was throbbing). So yeah…hopped into the elevator, took it up two floors and hobbled to my office. Fantastic start to the day. Truly graceful.

So I’m at my desk like two minutes, and my phone rings. It’s the commissionaire wanting to know if I really was okay, and if I needed him to call a doctor, or if I needed a witness for future physio therapy/workplace compensation….ummm…yeah. Holy embarrassing. For the record, my ankle was fine within about an hour. Not even a twinge today.

Anyway…moving on. I go to put my lunch into our brand new fridge (coincidentally, I’m the only one on our three person team who bring a lunch….it’s my own private fridge) only discover that my graceful swan-like dive, has in fact, dislodged the lid on my chicken/corn chowder. Crappy. So now I have smoky chicken chowder yogourt and pears. :( I hate Tupperware. I cleaned the stuff up and sat at my desk. All was well.

Except (this may be TMI), because I hadn’t done laundry since I got back, I was wearing a rather uncomfortable thong. So in adjusting it (yay for private offices), I managed to pop the hook of my pants (hello, diet jumpstart).

And that, ladies and gentlemen, was the first 15 minutes back at work after vacation. Also…it was pouring rain after a week in sunny, beautiful Mexico. Very sad.

Thankfully, it was not a prophetic entrance. ;) The rest of the day was pretty good.

Can’t say the same for my house. Or…shall I say…B&B.

While we were away, my father was “bunnysitting” our two rabbits…this works out great – he’s a bit of a homeless nomad (long story) and my bunnies are MUCH less destructive if they see people for more than 3 minutes a day. Well, my brother also decided to stop in while we were away, and was in fact at my house when we arrived home (so much for our…heehee…plans). Now…I’m not certain someone slept in my bed…but….the decorative pillows were in a different configuration when I got home. So I have my suspicions. Anyway, they are out for now (though my mom is coming for a night this week…seriously, it’s a B&B. I don’t mind though ;) ).

Of course, my house, as per usual, is disastrous. I think I got it that way in a record 24 hours after returning from Mexico. Incidentally, my suitcase, which I swore up and down I would unpack right away, is still sitting, mostly packed, on my bedroom floor. Maybe I’ll get to that tonight….

The other thing is that since returning, I have been STARVING. I probably ate like 6000 calories a day down south….and now dropping down to a more civil 1800 is almost killing me. I want food. I want it NOW and I want it ALL. I’m workin’ on it though.

Dinner plan for tonight – pork medallions in apple cider with mashed sweet potatoes (that have allspice and blue cheese in them…should be good!). I’ll also add some baby carrots and celery sticks to up the veggie and munchiness factor.

Cleaning plan….umm….meh. I should unpack, start some laundry, and clean the kitchen. That would be a good start.

I will leave you with a pictures…yours truly in Mexico, enjoying some tequila….

Welcome back!

Nothing like getting right back into the swing of things. My suggestion for unpacking is to not do any of the sandy things over the bed. DH did this after our vacation and it was like sleeping on the beach for the next week! Not exactly how you want to prolong the vacation experience...

Geez, sounds like a *great* first day back! I suggest setting aside 15 minutes every day to get a bit of unpacking/cleaning done. I do this and it makes the jobs seem so much more manageable. I am, however, embarrassed to admit that I did a mad dash clean of the kitchen last night when I got the 15 minute warning from my mom that she was stopping by - that was last night. Today, disaster again. Sigh. Love the dress in the pic, by the way! Welcome back.
