**Well, we'll bookend with good:
First - awesome weekend - BEN'S FIRST BIRTHDAY PARTY!!
It was epic.
Will hopefully get through pics tonight! (For now, some scrapbook-editing my SIL did:
First, on his actual birthday (Thursday) I had IL's over for cake, coffee and gifts (since, with 50+ people coming Saturday! we wouldn't be opening gifts in front of everyone.)
He got such fun stuff!
a drum set, a guitar, a power-wheels Spiderman quad!
(The hat was from daycare - he wore it the entire day, the car ride home, and all night...)
And just a party-teaser:
Monday morning continued FABULOUSLY:
1. I went to head to DD to pick up breakfast (and only food - I pay my receptionist weekly to pick me up DD coffee every morning with the order she places for multiple co-workers) I discovered I left my wallet at home.
so no breakfast.
2. I get to work, walk in and see a replacement receptionist. (reminder - see above re: coffee!)
so now I have no coffee, no breakfast, and no wallet to go hit up DD!
cherries on top - the receptionist is asking me if [program A] on the computer - have I noticed any downtime this morning?
uuuuh I JUST walked in, haven't even gotten to my office or a computer... Derrrrrr
3. When I do get upstairs, I realize I left some notes at home that E wanted me to type up and send to a patent guy for some brilliant invention we have going. (more on that once patent is pending!!)
4. And then I noticed someone stole my stapler.
I hate Mondays.
But- but but - the Good amongst the Bad (no breakfast) and Ugly (NO COFFEE!) :
E's new company (he switched jobs back in April) is having a party on July 31st to celebrate their success.
A party on a PRIVATE YACHT.
in NYC Harbor.
WOOHOO!!! A chance to get all dressed up and wear sparkly heels and a fancy dress!
(Another more every-day silver-lining: we have a new free-lance marketer who looks like this:)
(with black hair (he's from South America))
but DAMN can the man wear a suit...
So he comes in a few times a week, and it's usually unannounced - he'll just breeze into the office...
