Life Lately

Over Labor Day weekend Matt's sister and her family visited! It was a great time but exhausting. 7 year olds have SO much energy. The baby was actually easier to take care of, haha. Feed her, change her, give her a toy and she's content. The 7 year old though, man she'll give you a run for your money!

Lady and Cajun were so tired after they left. Lady slept so deep that she drooled all over the pillow she was laying on. And Cajun had the sleepy look until Thursday. I think they've recovered but we're all glad for a quiet weekend. 

Monday after they headed out I realized my throat hurt and by that afternoon I was full on sick. I hadn't done anything remotely physical until today. Hard to do much when you can't breathe out of your nose! But, today I speed walked (I'm still not 100% and no I still can't breathe out of my nose so no running) a 5K with my friend in the park. It felt so good to sweat. I'm sure I'm really going to feel it tomorrow though!

Work has been busy lately we have a meeting coming up in a week and a half. I'm trying to get as many reports in as possible before so my numbers look good. Which basically means I'm staring at excel even harder and longer than normal. 

I also decided to get a part time job during the 'holidays' since we know the 'holidays' now start in September according to the retail world. I just started working. We're going to use the money to pay off some debt, which will be nice. And Matt has been lucky to get a lot of over time (at time and a half, wooo!) lately so hopefully we can really put a dent in this debt and be done with it for good! We're well on our way, but the extra funds are going to help us reach our goals quicker. 

I'm enjoying the weather and the lack of tourists this week too. It's amazing the drastic change in traffic, etc after labor day. It's still pretty busy on the weekends but during the week things are noticeably quieter and it's only going to get better from here!

Annnnd that's about it. This week I will be back at the gym every day. Hopefully this means between now and Monday morning my nose decides to magically work again. I guess we'll see!

And without further ado a few pictures for your viewing pleasure :)

Pool time with the girls!

A dangerous store to go in to with a 7 year old!!!

Good luck with the part-time job! I hope your normal breathing returns soon. That is the most annoying part about colds! (I especially hate it when only one side of my face is clogged and the other is perfectly fine....ugh!)

Glad you're starting to feel human again; I have been fighting something all week!

Ugh, tourist season!! Traffic here has still been slightly heavy, I'll be glad when it's back to normal. It makes such a huge difference, doesn't it?!
