TeaChat: Hot Sauce and Shame

For those of you who are new around here, TeaChats are a monthly post that I do in which I pretend that you and I are going out and grabbing a cup of tea (or coffee or wine) and we’re chatting about what we’ve been up to lately.

Whew! I struggled this week with the blog.

Typically, I write a week’s worth of posts over the weekend so that I can just read and comment on other blogs in the evenings before bed during the week, but with Easter, it threw off my routine.

Anyway, I’m back in the game this weekend, so hopefully I’ll be more present in the community this week.

March was a stressful month for me. Let’s just say that it’s nice to know that misogyny is alive and well and, apparently, acceptable in the workplace. /sarcasm

The highlight of March, however, was that my sisters, mom, my best friend, and I started a romance novel book club. It’s a great excuse to chat about books and book boyfriends we love and just to hang out with one another. I’m very close to my siblings and parents, so it may seem weird, but it’s actually not at all (for me, anyway).

February was a LOVEly month around here… minus a couple of rounds of sickness that made its way through my house (AGAIN!).

My husband and I played “hooky” (and by hooky, I mean we used PTO days) from work so that we could spend some time alone together while the girls were in school.

We very rarely get to hang out alone these days as babysitters are hard to come by… and I definitely have major mom guilt any time I am away from the girls too much since I work full time.

During our little staycation we saw two movies: The Shape of Water and Black Panther, went shopping, and went out to eat before picking the girls up from school.

Black Panther was AMAZING! I had goosebumps the entire time. The Shape of Water was… weird, but I respect it.

Anyway, let’s jump into the categories of what I’ve been up to lately.

TeaChat: 50 Shades of The Greatest Showman

Goodness, gracious. Anyone else feel like everyone around them is dropping like flies from this flu craziness?! My entire family has been sick on and off since November… every single one of us was hit with the flu at least once. It’s been such a nightmare.

Anyway, sorry to start off with such a downer LOL!

Let’s pretend that you and I are going out and grabbing a cup of tea (or coffee… or wine) and chatting about what we’ve been up to lately.

This week was my first week back in the office. I was able to work from home for the past couple of weeks since it was Winter Break, so it was nice to be able to work in my PJs and not spend a million dollars on gas and tolls.

Getting back in the groove of things at work was fine since I got quite a bit done at home. Surprisingly enough I’m much more productive at home because I’m not getting interrupted a million times a day.

Anyway, let’s get on with it!

Let’s pretend that you and I are going out and grabbing a cup of tea (or coffee… or wine) and chatting about what we’ve been up to lately.

I figured I’d add this to the blog every week or so… an update about what’s going on in my little world.

I’d love to hear what you’ve been up to as well, whether it’s in the comments or on your own blog post.

So, grab a cup, and let’s chat!
