Weekending | North Carolina

Consider this a short extension of Monday's Weekending post.  Saturday through Monday, we were visited with some family and had a fabulous time.  However, this week at work has been crazy- a new person has started, so I have been training them.

I love training people for jobs.  Mostly because I'm neurotic in the way that I do things, and want control over how the new person goes about their job.  Their job is the one that I had when I started out in the department, and I'm kind of protective of what it entails and how to go about doing it.  That said, I have little time for my own work, so am constantly playing catch up during lunch breaks and such.  That should calm down in the next couple of weeks.

On a personal level, we also got some exciting news last week.  I can't wait to share with you all, but between weekend shenanigans and week-long training… Things are a little overwhelming  at the moment, so I'm waiting in hopes I'll be able to wrap my head around it all in the coming days and make some headway.

I suppose this would be a good time to throw the disclaimer that I am not pregnant, since that is the topic that everybody we've told goes to!

In closing, I love and appreciate everyone's comments on here, especially since I haven't gotten much time to visit others' blogs and comment as I'd like!

Raven Rock State Park North Carolina
I'll leave ya'll with some pictures of our excursion in North Carolina.  Little Puppy Pants enjoyed looking out the window (with it open) which made her little ears fly up like Dumbo!  She also enjoyed checking out the river at Raven Rock.  I was kind of afraid she was going to hope in, and it's got quite a strong current!


  1. sounds like you've had a busy week! I completely understand the liking to train them so you can teach them your ways, I used to do the same! hehe

  2. Hahahaha why is it that when you say you have news...everyone just assumes you are pregnant? I get that a lot too. Like hello, other things can be exciting as well!!!

  3. A very busy week indeed! I'm excited for the weekend, that I fear, is going to be equally as busy!

  4. LOL we got it from EVERYONE. And I think there was a tinge of disappointment when we told them what was actually going on!

    Why is that always everyone's first conclusion...? My fiance' and I get married in 40 days & I texted my bridesmaids to tell them we were taking a little girls trip in a week or two & started off with "I've got a big surprise for y'all!" and they all thought I was expecting! People make me laugh :)
