What I’ve Been Up To Lately

in Adventures, life

Several of my seriously awesome blogging friends have emailed me to make sure I’m okay since I haven’t blogged since last Friday.  It wasn’t intentional, this blogging absence of mine, but life (as it often does) got in the way.  I thought you might like to see what I’ve been up to since I didn’t share my menu plan or any super tasty recipes this week.

Making more than one huge mess in my kitchen.

Successfully making heart-shaped whoopie pies for a girls-only Valentines Day party I threw.  I also made spinach dip and my favorite sliders in case you were interested.

Making plans to go wedding shopping with my best friend this weekend.

Being overwhelmed with literature searches on a daily basis.  The residents have research projects due in March and they’ve been using the library more than ever.  I’ve had more lit searches in February than I had in my first three months on the job combined! And the month isn’t even through yet.  I’m exhausted and my brain hurts.

Reorganizing my files.  They’ve been a wreck ever since my library moved and I just finally buckled down and redid them.  Now I know where everything is and it is all labeled very clearly.  It does this mildly OCD heart good.

Reading. 

Playing with Caty.  She’s so cute; I just can’t get enough of her.  She does this adorable thing where she sort of rolls/slides her way down the stairs in attempt to get my attention.  I need to video it because it’s hilarious.  And really cute. 

Planning my trip to Minneapolis for the Medical Library Association conference.

Vegging out on the couch with my mom watching some of our favorite shows.

So clearly, I’ve been incredibly busy.  I can’t express how insane work has been and how much it’s made me value the quiet times when I can actually get something productive done.  Or do unproductive, yet way more fun tasks like read blogs. 

Are you super busy too?  Or is it just me who feels like life is spiraling out of control?

Oh, my. Those sliders look delicious! And so do the whoopie pies.

I've been super busy lately, too, and I can't wait for things to calm down. 🙁

The sliders are amazing. I make them on those little Hawaiian rolls and they are so tasty. You should definitely make them the next time you need an appetizer.
