Happy Friday to everyone!

Happy husband-free weekend to you deer-hunter widows.  Yep...I'm one of them.  Perhaps I get wife of the year award for being so fine with my husband leaving me at less than 3 weeks post partum?!?!?  Or...perhaps I just get a diaper full of sh*t.  Either way, I'm hoping my main man has a nice relaxing weekend and comes home well rested and rejuvenated.  Really, I'm ok with single parenting it for a few days.  Dave only takes time for himself once a year, and this weekend is it.  So, I'm glad he was still planning on going.

Plus, I have an awesome mom who is willing to help her daughter out for the weekend!  So, I won't be alone.

In a late night/ early morning epiphany, I realized that I am horribly over-extended.  I have too many balls in the air, and I lay awake trying to figure out how not to drop any of them. 

And my conclusion to this problem?

Drop them.

Yep...I'm letting balls drop.

I'm giving up a few things in order to make room for other things that need my attention/ are less time consuming.

The fact that I'm still working and I have a newborn isn't helping my stress level....but hopefully after a weekend of work-focused time, I will be able to turn over some completed audits and unhand some uncompleted audits.  That way I can rest and figure out a schedule with the baby before I head back to work after the first of the year (which is our BUSY I'll be jumping into the fire).

So, anyway...that's my week in a nutshell.  Let's answer some questions:

1.  What snacks/ drinks do you bring to the movies?

I bring my own in.  I'm not about to take out a mortgage on the house just for some popcorn.  So, the boys and I will head to the store and they pick out a box of movie theater candy for $1 (note:  the SAME box in the theater is $ 4.25!!!!).  Then we bring in water bottles for drinks.  Thank goodness for big purses.

Do I feel guilty?  No, no I do not.

2.  What is one food you ever refuse to try?

Lamb Fries.

I cannot stomach knowing that I'd be eating a sheep's you-know-whats fried up.  Nope, not for me.

3.  What is your favorite nail polish color?

Well...I don't know what the colors are called exactly, but I saw this on Pintrest, and I loved it.

4.  What is your favorite Thanksgiving tradition?

Chillin' with my family.  In a cozy house.  And taking a nap.  :)

5.  What are your least favorite words in the English language? 

I dislike slang words...such as "ain't"...but the word that just grates on me is a derogatory word:

Starts with "C" and ends in "unt."  I hate that word with a passion.

Love your answers. We don't do deer season here. Hubby doesn't even fish.
