I know, I know, I disappeared... Sorry about that. I have some great excuses, most of which you don't want to hear, some of which you're definitely going to be interested in ; )
My grandfather passed away last month. It was a long time coming, he was very sick and in a lot of pain, it was absolutely expected. Still, a loss is a loss and, being that I did not have a very involved or active relationship with him, there are mixed feelings. 'Nuff said.
Emmaline and I went on our first trip together! With my grandfather's passing, a little fire was lit under my family's bottom to get Emma out to the East Coast to meet her remaining Great Grandparents (my mother's father and my father's mother - say that three times fast!!). We flew on an airplane, slept in a hotel and a strange house (all grandparents' houses are strange right? not just mine?), and endured a 2 hour time difference AND the daylight savings switcheroo! Overall, the trip was a success and Emma did great. Some pictures for your entertainment... because my daughter makes some of the funniest faces!!!
Oh yeah, and this happened, WTF???
On the bright side, I have some incredible and exciting news to share!!! On Tuesday. I'll tell you on Tuesday. And no, I didn't get the job, dammit. I have no idea why because no one will call or e-mail me back. In the meantime, the gorgeous suit I bought for the purpose of landing this amazing job is sitting in my closet, laughing at me every day. I hate you, you beautifully lined, incredibly flattering, pencil skirt and three button jacket Tahari suit... I hate you so very much...
