What a week. I got to enjoy dinner on the Fiore roof deck with my girls Monday (more on that later), got in a good work-out at the gym Tuesday, a personal training session followed by QT with the boyfriend at home Wednesday, and had drinks for a co-workers b-day at Trade Thursday, followed by more drinks at Jerry Remy’s, with a different group. And squeezed in between working at my day job, plenty of writing and researching for my blog, Examiner, CBS, and a future business endeavor my colleague and I have been dreaming up (you bet there will be more info to come on that later!!). Needless to say Friday I was beat and finally relaxed.
Today I have a long list of things to do to get organized since last weekend I attended the wedding and next weekend I will be meeting up with high school friends and their husbands and kids in CT. I have so much to share on my worthwhile reads from the web this week too (6/11th). Check it out:
