TGIF! This was a busy, stressful week at work, and I am SO GLAD it’s almost over. I’m also pumped because next week the majority of my team is out at a conference, so it will be just me and Freda holding down the fort. It should be a much more quiet week, and I can’t wait.

We’re house sitting until May 2. We’re back to our usual house-sitting gig for almost two weeks. We’ll be hanging out with Annie the Jack Russell Terrier and enjoying mountain views and hot tub time. While I genuinely love living with Ben’s parents, it will be nice to have our own space for a few weeks.

Ben’s job situation remains up in the air. He was supposed to have his interview this week, but due to last week’s emergency situation, it’s been pushed back. Obviously, we are frustrated and disappointed to be left in limbo another week, but it is what it is. Fingers crossed he gets an interview scheduled for next week.

I got a haircut at a new salon this week. I’m still actively growing my hair out, but I like to get a trim every three months to keep the ends healthy. I used to go see a friend of mine, but at $65 bucks a pop, it just wasn’t fiscally responsible. I tried out a new place, and it was pretty decent. My stylist was a bit loopy, and talked WAY too much, but for the price, I was happy with what I got. And now I can stop snipping individual split ends when I’m bored at my desk.

I have a new Podcast obsession. I go in fits and starts with Podcasts. I feel like I find one I get really excited about, but lose enthusiasm quickly. But this new (to me) one is GOLD. It’s called Theater People, and it features full-length interviews with Broadway stars. For a total theatre nerd like me (yes, I spell it “re” and not “er”) it’s PERFECT. I have a 45 minute commute each way to work, and I have been loving getting behind the scenes info, advice, and inspiration from performers I admire.

Are you as happy as I am that it’s Friday?
