Normally I start my day on the computer around 7:30am. Then I venture next door with the dogs for coffee (they don’t have coffee). At 8:30, I’m back on the computer, floating around social media, starting on my do-to lists (like today I’m sending out a press release, adding some edits to a new eBook, check in on Twitter, send out a few emails, read some business articles, etc.).
It’s hard for me to skip this step and blog instead. Seriously everyday I have the intention to blog, but after spending the entire morning on the computer, I lose my ambition. Also, I like to read all my unread blogs in Google Reader before blogging – but I think ignoring my to-do list is the only way I can get back to regular blogging!
So, anyway… I flew to Florida last Monday, arriving at the airport 2.5 hours before my flight out of Detroit (you never know what’s going to happen at the border, as it happens, William and I were the first in line and the border guard sent us right through). Checking in (I couldn’t get the pass on my phone) I discovered my flight was delayed by 2 hours (the delay was announced between the time I left for and arrived at the airport – ugh!). Super.
Around 5:30 the next morning I left Fort Myers heading home. I hoped to stop just inside KY – as it turns out, when I booked my hotel on Priceline, I was well inside KY. It turned out to be a 14 hour drive as I came into huge storms, construction and bad car accidents. Super! I had a crappy dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings, and a king can of Bud in my room.
I dropped off the car and was picked up by William, finally arriving home around 2pm Wednesday. I had a quick nap (very necessary) and did some work around the house.
Thursday, TOL, Nic and a few others and myself went to the Tigers home opener. I am so not a baseball fan, but I do like a good party – and the home opener did not disappoint!
Downtown D was crazy, (as was my smile!) TOL, Nic and I finished the cold day (afternoon and part of the evening!) in our hot tub… ahhh.
Friday I busted my butt cleaning the house in preparation for our Essex County Masters Champions Dinner (4 guys plus me). Our first golf tournament participants arrived at our house at 8:30 am Saturday, for Bloody Mary cocktail hour – then golf. Then party back at our house.
It was a pretty good party – lots of laughs, and some good memories! I hope to update the Essex County Masters website soon. It’s kind of funny because it’s a small tourney, but we go all out being ‘serious’ about certain aspects of it. I think everyone had a good time.
Who did a full header into the corn hole board, and yes, she’s wearing a tail.
Yeah, that kind of thing makes life good.
