My route pets!!

These are Gretta, Jelly Bean, and Sophie!! Poor Gretta moved when I snapped the picture, so she got cut in half. Hopefully we will get another opportunity to put her pretty face on her... These are just a few of my favorite cuties I look forward to seeing on my route everyday. They know me and come running up to me when I deliver their mommies mail. I am going to try to get pictures of my other little friends this week on my vacation. And, yes Kim, I know you will laugh at me but I cannot help it!!!

Fun weekend!!

I went to Chicago Saturday afternoon with three friends to celebrate my best friend Kim's birthday. We stayed at the Westin on Michigan Ave, right next to Water Tower and across from The Hancock building. The rooms normally go for $256 a night, but being the savvy travel agent that I am, I got them for $98 a night!! So, we could afford to get 2 rooms and split the cost. We went to The Cheesecake Factory for dinner, then went back to the hotel and dressed up for the bar hopping in the evening!!! We walked to Rush St and went 3 bars and I had several margaritas on the rocks!! Yummy!! Everyone had a really good time and the sexy birthday girl got up on the bar and danced!! Wow!! I dont think even I could do that!!! Pretty awesome. We stopped for Chicago hotdogs at 2am, where a man we didn't know bought Kim's meal!! Then we walked back to the hotel, dragging 2 unwilling girls along with the 2 TIRED girls!!! Thank god Kim knew where the hotel was and she got us back safely.

The next morning we went to The Grand Lux for brunch. Too yummy. Go if you ever have a chance. Then, a brief stop at Water Tower Place where I had to have some Godiva truffles. Then, the drive home. I got home at 4:30 and was dead tired by the time I took care of the pets and unpacked.

Then back to work today!! Not fun after a week off. I am going to bed now.

Last night

Last night I went to Reggio's with my best friend, Kim. I knew I had to work this morning, but I am on vacation after today so I didnt care. OMG!! I am soooo tired!! We had such a good time, though. And I love my friend Kim so much. We can talk about everything, and though we surprise each other every once in a while with things the other did not know, it is all part of the fun. I cant believe we ever survived that office without being friends... And it is so nice to have a girlfriend who really gets it! We know we can say ANYTHING to one another and not be offended or pissed. We always know we love each other and mean no disrespect; we are just being ourselves. And "ourselves" is sarcastic and funny and obnoxious!!! YAY!!!!

Anyway, the food at Reggio's is fantastic and I brought most of my huge dinner home to Paul, who is really sick with the flu. He was very happy and ate it all! This will be a new favorite place, I am sure.

Paul is staying home from work today, which is a smart move. He now has lost his voice and is just overall wiped out. He needs to sleep all day and do nothing. All the bills are paid for the week, so he can relax. No stress.

Off to make the doughnuts; deliver the mail....

We had a big celebratory dinner tonight!! We refinanced our house this evening and will be saving $125 a month!!! And the closing was done in our house, which was convenient. So, we decided to live it up! New York Strip, grilled shrimp, and King Crab!! Yummy. And we saved more money by eating it at home, because of course Paul is a fabulous cook. No children screaming, no server complaining about her life, no steak over-cooked.... Just our lovely, lovely home. Life is good!!!
