Another Crazy Week

It's 7:46am on Monday and I can barely keep my eyes open. I've already been to Indianapolis and back dropping Tim, Korry and Ken off at the airport (they're headed to a media convention). I couldn't sleep last night because I was worried about oversleeping, and don't like the fact that I won't get to see my husband for a few days. So, needless to say, all I want to do right now is go back to bed. I am planning on leaving work around 1 or 2 so I can rest before my small group meeting tonight at our place at 7:30.

It's funny to me how used I've gotten to having another person around all the time. I used to live alone and it didn't bother me. I never had problems going to sleep and I never felt like I needed to have noise to keep me from hearing all the 'sounds' that are everywhere. but now, I am so used to Tim being there that when he isn't (which, thankfully, isn't all that often) I hear a million sounds I can't explain and just in general feel like I'm being watched, etc. So him being gone is going to be no fun!

Luckily, I have friends keeping me fairly busy this week. I have smoup tonight (after which I will probably crash pretty hard from lack of sleep). Tomorrow night my dearest friend Lizzie is coming to town to hang out. Wednesday I am hoping to do dinner with Rene and maybe over to Amy's for some good ol' scrapbooking time. Then Tim gets back early thursday morning (after I am already at work sadly). We'll have Thursday night to hang out, then I leave Friday morning to go Indy to have the Race for the Cure weekend with my mom!

Whew, it's going to be a crazy week. I am very much looking forward to hanging out with my mom this weekend, though!

I just have to find my brother a present first...what do you buy a soon to be 17 year old boy for his birthday?


  1. Ah... my email questions are answered. :)

    I hate when Scott is gone, but there is a tiny part of me that enjoys a night all to myself (well, with the exception of those meddling kids.)

    How 'bout an itunes gift card for your bro with some weird snacks like beef jerky and pistachio nuts? :)

  2. Hi Emily! I clicked on your name while reading comments on Cindy's blog...and I couldn't believe how much we have in common on our favorites on our bios. I also love Caedmon's Call and Wicked and The Princess Bride, among others. I got to see Wicked in Chicago last summer and it was one of the highlights of my entire year!

    Come by and visit my blog when you have a moment. :)

  3. Em, I, too, have been amazed to how quickly I've gotten used to having Stan around. I lived alone for 5 years, and it was fine. Now, I don't even really like being by myself at the house for a couple of hours. It is too quiet.

    Oh, and money. You buy a soon to be 17 year old boy money, or gift cards. All they want is the means to buy what they want.
