Helloooo.....Is anyone out there???

I've been MIA in blog world this week because of work. Yes, I'm going to whine about work again! I worked 60 hours last week. Not fun. Thankfully, I didn't have to work the weekend so I've had 2 glorious days of doing absolutely nothing. Well, aside from some laundry & going to Mass.

The biggest issue with all the overtime is that it's interfering with my workouts. What an odd sentence that is. I never ever thought I'd be saying that. I ran one morning last week & I didn't go to Yoglates at all. I could've ran more but after working 12 & 13 hour  days I needed some sleep. This week is supposed to be better. We'll see.
Friday we went out to lunch. We went to a fairly new place in town called Bushwood BBQ. There was nothing fancy about this place but it was good. I got what they call the Bushwood Stacker. It's basically BBQ nachos with french fries instead of chips.
I chose pulled pork & it was sooooo good!!!

Friday night the girls got together for Wendy's birthday. We ate at ACME Oyster House. It was delicious!!! I started my weekend off with a drink.
This is a Killer Buzz. It was delish! Malibu Rum, Blue Curacao, Sierra Mist & Pineapple juice. YUM!! After dinner we decided to split a dessert.
It was as good as it looks!!!
Friday night I slept 10 hours & it was absolutely glorious! There was rain off & on too. We didn't have any plans to do anything & that was fine with me. I stayed in my pj's all day pretty much just like this.
Then later when the sun came out I switched from the pj's to my swimsuit & got in the pool for awhile. I wasn't completely lazy, I swam 30 laps. THEN I floated around while Dean tried out what he calls his "Coonass Hibachi".
He bought a Hibachi grill to put on his burner that he uses outside. He did steak, chicken & shrimp. It was soooo good! Our neighbors Matt & Suzy came over & hung out for a little while.
The wine was delish too! It was a wonderfully relaxing day.

This morning we went to Mass & did our grocery shopping for the week. I eat a lot of Greek yogurt. My favorite is Danon Oikos Vanilla & I add fresh blackberries. This morning there were no blackberries so I got raspberries. I'm not sure how I feel about raspberries but I'll try them. This morning there were some new flavors.
I love key lime so I decided to try it. Not really a fan. It was ok. Not nearly as bad as the plain but not nearly as good as the vanilla or strawberry.



  1. So glad you at least had one good relaxing day! I'd love to have some rain, & I would probably hang out in my pjs all day, too!

    All those different food items looked so relish! Your hubby is funny!

  2. Good grief, 60 hours??? I feel for you! I am glad you got to RELAX a little this weekend, sounds like you had FUN too! XO, Pinky

  3. Yuck! 60 hour weeks are for the birds! Hoping this week is better!!! I have to travel Monday and Tuesday so in looking forward to a few regular work days this week myself. :)

  4. Yikes, 12-13 hour days, no fun! I would be EXHAUSTED. Glad you had a chance to relax!! XOXO ~Liz

  11. That is my every day breakfast...Oikos Traditional Strawberry. This week my store only had the fruit on the bottom kind, I don't like it nearly as well.
