I’ve been away from home too long…

No matter where I go… if I’m away for work or fun too long I start coming apart. I can always tell when it’s time to come home when instead of packing up my stuff, I want to throw out every outfit I brought with me.

And this….

Time to get home.

We’ve had some busy weeks and some sadness in between. Our family lost Lexi, short for Lexington, as in avenue in NYC.

I’m happy she’s at peace now.

About 8 years ago, we took the kids to Mexico for vacation. It rained one afternoon and the resort had the kids do a clay paint activity. My son found a little kitten and told us he wanted to paint it for Lexi.

This little statue has sat next to her food bowls ever since. And this is where it will stay.

I’ll leave you with something funny. Here’s the best thing I found in Austin,TX…

I’ll be thinking this in all my meetings at work this week. They’re not kidding when they say,” Keep Austin Weird”. I’m definitely in.

    How do you make me cry, laugh and be a little jealous all in the same post. I’m Sobbing over the news of Lexi.
    Then so touched by the cat statue. Then Laughing over the Mug, and in disbelief of your nails! they NEVER look not beautiful😮
    Finally I’m a bit envious, that you get to travel so much for work (I know, it’s probably exhausting and frustrating at times) but
    I’ve always wanted to spend time in Austin. There is not enough weird in the world.
    Aww Lexi😪
