This week has been super busy at work, but I've almost survived it, and I have one more report due today. After that I have until the end of the month to get the rest of my reports in, so I can slow down a little bit. This week was crunch time since we lost a day before month-end closing due to the holiday, and then we lost another day due to some year-end activity on Monday. Normally I'd have more than 4 days for this first batch of reports.
I finally finished the book that I'd bought in early June, and I'm on to my next one. I read Gilded Deceit by Tracy Grant, which I think is #13 in the series, and now I'm reading What the Dead Leave Behind by Rosemary Simpson. I'm a little behind on my reading, since I've been working on the Rudolph Christmas ornaments, but I'm almost done with those, and I have more time for reading.
I've been sitting here, waiting for RnR to release the medals for Las Vegas. I know they have other races coming up, and this week has all been about Chicago, but I'm twiddling my thumbs, waiting for the new designs. I'm not quite impressed with the participant t-shirt, and it seems to be the standard design this year. The medals have been really good though, so I'm over here with Jeopardy music in my head.
This weekend will be busy, but hopefully a fun one. My mom and I are co-hosting a wedding shower for my cousin and his fiancee. My aunt and the bride's sister are also hosting, and we've been planning since February. The theme is "blooming into love", and we've tried to stick with that for the decorations. I have no creative, artsy skills, but I think what we've all come up with will be exciting once it's all put together.
My parents and I are also seeing Hamlet tonight for the Colorado Shakespeare Festival. Every summer, CU hosts the festival and 4 or 5 plays are performed between the outside amphitheater, and the indoor auditorium. Hamlet will be inside. The twist on the play is Hamlet will be played by a woman, as a woman. I've never seen Hamlet performed live, and I'm looking forward to it.
And my Oiselle capris arrived. They're pretty comfy, and I'm looking forward to testing them out with strength training. It's still too warm for running in them, but that'll come in the fall.
