all quiet on the western front...

not much going on in my neck of the woods this week. classes started yesterday which means my days are filled with more student interaction [which I love] and more students eating junk outside my office [which I hate] - if you follow me on twitter you get to hear rants about this at least weekly during the school year. It never fails, the day I have a salad to eat there are like 30 kids outside my office eating cheeseburgers and french fries [don't they know I'm trying to eat  healthy?!]. but seriously, I'm psyched school is back in session and am ready to hit the ground running.

I'm a little sad today because DJ is leaving me for a week to attend to some business in NYC [he's fancy]. I want to take a business trip. That's the one thing I miss about my yearlong stint in the corporate world... business trips. I love traveling for work, being out of the office and exploring new places, oh yeah and flying and sleeping in hotels. I even loved filling out my expense report when I got back [I know, I'm a freak]. Oh well, that's about all I liked about that job so clearly I'm back in the right place/field.

But back to DJ, I'm such a baby when it comes to being without him now. It's so foreign to think about spending the next week without him. I also have to drive myself to work for the next three days, the nerve of him.  Luckily, I have Ollie and my MIL to keep me company. I have a feeling a lot of girly movies/TV is going to be watched this week and it makes me very happy!

I also finished two books this week - one that I LOVED and that you should read [Fly Away Home by Jennifer Weiner] and one that was kinda, eh - that I wouldn't really recommend [Chasing Harry Winston - Lauren Weisberger]. More on those later...

well, this was kinda a pointless post so I'll leave you with this youtube video makes me giggle....

happy tuesday kittens.

Sounds like you need a bottle of wine, a pizza (it's ok, you're lonely), and a good ol' chick flick!! ;)

I hate when Mike's gone for more than a night, too. So boring without someone around the house to annoy. =P

I have literally nothing to blog about today lol

I am the same way about Ethan being gone, it like a huge deal to figure out what the heck I'm supposed to do with myself for the next few days! haha.

I almost bought Fly Away Home! I kept The Help in my hands instead.

Hope your week husbandless goes fast and well.

Where in the world do you find this shiz? I was thinking I wouldn't need sound because it is sign language, but it isn't so. Too funny.

Why aren't you going with him?!

I am the same way when my husband leaves. I can never sleep as well. Although we will be living apart for two more months, so I have kind of had to get used to it :( Its still not fun though.

And I worked at a job for two years with lots of business travel and felt the same way you do! But its nice to have something with no travel. I feel like I got it out of my system.
