hooray for Friday!

I just wanted to stop in & say hello. Things have been unbelievably busy here recently: I've decided to take a new job at a company in Newton, which will start June 18 (this decision was the cause of a lot of stress over the past several weeks); we've had a houseguest visiting from Austin (with 2 more couch-crashers expected for tonight -- where will we fit everyone?!); and I've got my sister visiting for a conference (the 3 sisters volunteered together yesterday morning at the WLP, and then Sarah & I had a lovely gelato lunch, hehe). Last weekend I cooked a St. Patrick's Day corned beef and on Sunday got to see my old Vassar housemates, which was a total blast. Monday, Bethany & I volunteered at a WLP Art Show/fundraiser. Tonight, the 3 sisters bake pink-frosted cupcakes. Tomorrow, we've got a full day planned, and then on Sunday, we go to CT for a few hours to attend my cousin's fiancee's bridal shower, then hop a bus back up to Boston.

Can you tell that I'm feeling a bit frazzled? Yeah.

I will definitely update further about this weekend, and I don't have a lot planned for next week (thank goodness) so hopefully things will slow down a bit (and I'll manage to get some sleep!). I can't say I haven't been enjoying the busy days, but I could use a break, especially since I'm working especially hard at work these days, as well.

Phew. I need a nap. Too bad it's only 9 o'clock. xoxo
