Bless the Dry Martini

Stress is an ever-present factor in my life. Always has been. Always will be I’m sure. I can wish for the carefree days, but just when it seems they’re around the corner, something else will pop up for me to worry about, take care of, or whatever. Today was no exception. New worry added to the list. I’m amazed I don’t have any grey hairs or stomach-eating ulcers.

So, when I got the opportunity to go to a going-away happy hour (someone else is going away, not me) I got to enjoy a nice dry Absolut martini with extra olives. Mmmmm. Good. Then I went to dinner the lovely project manager that I’ve been working with on my recent project. I spent a little too much on my dinner, but it was a good conversation, good food, and great dessert. It was nice to relax and have adult chat time. I’ve had a few ‘Calgon, take me away’ moments lately, but I don’t particularly enjoy baths, so bathing plump green olives in dry vodka is particularly enticing to me.

Tomorrow is Friday, and I will leave work early so as to get my kiddos from their dad. Elle has soccer practice, and then I’m taking both kids to a Harry Potter launch party at the bookstore from which we pre-ordered the 7th and final book. Zed has read them all. I couldn’t get past Chapter 3 of the first book. I figure since we’re on the 5th movie it’s a little too late to go back to catch up. We’ll get the book at midnight and then head home. Elle has a soccer game at 9:06 am Saturday. *Yawn* I’m already tired. But the kids and I will have fun at the party.

What are your weekend plans? How Harry-hip are you?
