Thank goodness we had two and a half weeks off of work, I needed the time to relax, rest, and regroup. We started back on Monday January 5th and I had an event every single day at work. It has been crazy busy. Also, the president of our university unexpectedly resigned over break so there was a lot of uncertainty going into the week. To say I have been under a lot of pressure and stress would be an understatement.
First the good news…..the man who has agreed to act as our interim president is awesome, it really gave everyone a sense of relief that we have someone who genuinely cares about the university in charge while the board comes up with a succession plan.
Second, more good news…..my kitchen back splash is finally DONE! Whoo hooo, it has been a long process, but definitely worth the effort. I am so grateful to my husband and neighbor for all of their hard work. it looks amazing! I couldn’t have been more pleased.
Third, because of the kitchen project and my work schedule, I didn’t cook a thing in my kitchen until Thursday night. While making dinner and getting ready to take some photo’s we had a small plumbing issue (nothing serious), and dinner was put on low until it was resolved. We finally got a chance to eat at 9pm and the last thing on my mind were photos! I kept it simple, pan-fried pork chops with mushroom gravy, mashed potatoes, and peas. Easy, simple, filling, comfort food.
Friday night we had sausage and peppers with a side of pasta. I used really colorful peppers and it looked so pretty. I completely forgot to snap a photo before eating, so I am afraid you will just need to take my word for it!
Today, I need to head into work for an event this afternoon, as I said, it has been a busy week. Thank goodness the students come back on Monday, it has been quiet without them and I can’t wait to hear all about their time at home.
One last thing – I need to wish my great aunt H a happy birthday! May 2015 be your best year yet. I love you.
So how was your first full week of 2015? Eventful, exciting, exhausting?
