House all to my self

What am I supposed to do with an entire house to my self?

Mr. Ruby decided to head up to the Adirondack Mountains this weekend for some good ole' boy time. He actually asked if I wanted to go...and I politely declined. I mean really Mr. Ruby, do you seriously see me hiking for 10 hours a day for three days straight, without bathrooms, without a bed, without a shower and with a bunch of other guys? Oh, and to add to the manliness of it all, he's been growing a "beard" for about a week. 

Needless to say, I politely declined. 

So, I've got the house to myself for this extra-long weekend. No need to feel sorry for me...I've got the pups to keep me company. That, and a lot of housework and LOTS of catching up to do with work and school. Did I mention I'm in school? I've decided not to elaborate too much on the ol' blog...for many reasons. But let's just say it has been keeping me SUPER busy. 

In fact, I've been super-duper stressed for the past couple of weeks. But I received a very unexpected and pleasant surprise this past Thursday that cheered me right up. 

I was checking my morning e-mails and sorting out my schedule for the day when my boss popped in unexpectedly and asked "Hey, what do you have going on today?" I rattled off my plans for the day, and he cut me off to ask if I could fill in for someone at a day-long seminar...with 10 minutes notice. What was I supposed to say? So, I had to go to an all-day seminar...while in the back of my mind, all I could think about was my to-do list piling up. 

Well...during my lunch break, I headed to my office to catch up on some stuff. When I walked into my office, I found these beauties staring right back at me:

They were from my amazing husband - just to let me know how proud he is of me and to hang in there. (You'll have to excuse the quality...Mr. Ruby has the camera, so I had to take the photo with my phone). 

I love him.
