Bits and Pieces

In an attempt to post more (life's been crazy) here are some little things of what I've been up to lately:

I'm still sick. As in I think I had a 2-3 period since the beginning of the month where I felt ok, but the past week and a half I've been miserable. Went to the Dr. again yesterday, or I should say they came to my office - I LOVE White Glove, and have a new round of meds. She said if this doesn't make me better I may want to have an XRay of my sinuses or bloodwork done to see if something else isn't going on. Isn't that fantastic news?

Two of the chickens are laying. It's cute to get a tiny egg and a large egg each day. I'm pretty sure it's Maudene who started first and Agnes who has just started. Midge kind of took a step back after her attack and looks no where near ready to start laying like the others. She doesn't have a comb.

This was the haul we got from Bountiful Baskets this week.


It's a crazy amount of food for just $15.

Work has been insanely busy. Last week I did new hire paperwork for 40 new staff members and just yesterday I did 14. I think I still have another 20 to go this week. It's a very busy time of year for us and when you're not feeling so hot on top of it it's not so fun.

I'm ready for fall. September equals fall to me even though we're on 44th day of 100 degree weather here. I still think it means fall. I'm so ready for boots and soups and pumpkin recipes. In fact, my pinterest feed (if that's what you call it? I'm not sure) is full of fall things so I know I'm not the only one ready to beat the heat already. That's one of the things I think I'm going to love about our trip. Cool weather!

Oh and yes, our trip. It's my biggest time suck, but in a good way. We're going on a quick little tour of Europe! We're going to be in London, Prague, Paris and Rome. I have never been to Prague so I'm really excited about it. John's never been to Europe so I'm also really excited about that too. We're going to be flying from each city to the next. Airfare between European cities is like stupid cheap. Our flight from Prague to Paris, which is something like a 10 hour drive, is $38 FOR THE TWO OF US. Seriously, why can't we do that in the US? Of course the $38 really turned into more like $90 when you add in baggage fees, check in fees and fee to use your credit card. Yes. Fee to use your credit card. Isn't that a nice one? I actually discovered a site called eDreams that allowed me to use paypal to avoid the fees. Still, less this $50 a person? I can't even fly to Houston or Dallas for that price!
