TWTW - the one with the godmothering

Friday morning found me running on less than five hours of sleep. After a quick unpack/repack and painting my janky ass vacation nails, I was on the road to the airport by 11:30. The 25 minute trip took an hour including a very near accident. I followed this joy with a pat down and luggage search. I was tired and hangry, which is my danger zone. Then a snarky lady wanted to huff and puff at me because my book was on a seat I did not know she was occupying. No problem, I moved my book immediately. Her and her boyfriend (who did not tell me she was sitting there) then made we'll talk about a lot of things later statements and gestured to me. I guess they were hoping I wasn't looking or wouldn't respond if I was? Wrong on both counts. I will hand you your ass in public, loudly, and not care. Toodleoo, majafackahs. All was well once I arrived in Boston though and met my darling Libby, hung out with Kim and her mom, and had a fabulous steak kebab meal courtesy of Steve. I slept like the dead and regret nothing.
Saturday was a slow and easy day. We were ladies who lunched at Zuzu's Cafe in Wakefield followed by a short walk around Lake Quannapowitt. The company was wonderful, as was the food, and Zuzu's was definitely owned by someone in my tribe. 
The rest of the day was filled with playing on the floor and finishing The Hate U Give (read it, I did, in less than 24 hours). I also placed my Amazon Fresh grocery order and tried to get my poop in a pile for the week ahead. Libby is sassy and smart. She makes me laugh and I love her. She growls and it is hilarious. 
Sunday I ate myself silly at a lovely pre-Baptism brunch at Kim & Steve's before heading off to the church to assume the official godmother role. The Priest had a great personality and a penchant for being short and sweet, always appreciated in the heat. 
It was time to say goodbye too soon, and my ass was deposited at the airport by 2:45. And this is one of the reasons I dislike Starbucks. It's not that hard, Starbucks. It's not hard at all. I was also sad that Boston, the home of DD, did not have one near my gate. 
Reunion number two with los perros by 7:15, food ordered and delivered by 8:15, and groceries arrived by 8:30. Weekly food prep: breakfasts are scrambled eggs with green onions and cheese with a tiny broccoli topper; three days of lunches are turkey kielbasa with cheese inside over colorful cauliflower and/or broccoli; snacks are strawberries, peaches, and cucumbers; dinners will be some type of chicken thighs meal. That was supposed to be lunch but they arrived frozen and I don't have time to pussyfoot around with frozen poultry at 8:30 on a Sunday night.


First day back in the office in two weeks. This should be fun. And awaaaay we go.

  9. People are so silly - make a big deal because a book was temporarily in your seat? lols I would have told them off too. Your goddaughter is adorable. One last thing - the name. I completely understand your frustration - people invent ways to spell my name (Krystal) wrong. Hope you have a great day STAPHNIE haha

  11. Awww ... Libbry is adorable and I love that she growls. People at the airport are nuts. Seriously. It's not a great place to be ever but especially when you're hangry. There is a new business by me that has a similar sign to ZuZu's Cafe. I'm definitely going to give them business when they open but I sure wish (maybe) that they weren't a chocolate shop. :D

  12. Staphnie kind of cracks me up... I once got a cup that kind of had my name on it. The A, U, R, E, and Y was right, but the lowercase "d" had the line straight through it... like they couldn't decide if I'd said Audrey or Aubrey. It cracked me up.
    Congrats on the godmothering!

  13. You have been one busy lady with all the traveling... hope the day back to work isnt as miserable as I assume it can be.

  14. Brunch is the best time to eat yourself silly! Sorry you had such a rough start to your travel day on Friday, and you better believe I would have let the people next to me have it too. I'm overly nice to strangers, but if you are rude to me when I've given you no reason to be it's on!

  15. Amazing work that is impressive and it also shows that you are spending good time with your family. Wish you best and happiest life.

  17. i have Hate U Give on hold but it's taking forever to arrive :(

  18. Oh Staphnie, they were close....LOL. I swear they do it so you will share a picture of your cup. Baby face up there is adorable and I am glad to hear that another kid growls. Sometimes Zoe sounds like a Gremlin but it makes me laugh. Sounds like you had a great weekend! I still need to read Hate U Give.

  19. goodness why are people so rude? good for you for letting them have it. honestly how exhausting it must be to be like that. oh staphanie. wtf. i never give my name because people can never spell it. so I say Kris, but they write Chris. which is fair, i guess. i have the hate u give on my list, pretty sure i'm like #300. louisville library holds are never that bad but this one is for some reason! must be good!
