Nothin' a Little Malibu Rum Won't Help

I'm having a tough time at work right now. It's nothing that I'm doing wrong; I'm actually doing my job well and getting compliments. It's that the brand I'm working on is having a hard time. We're having a hard time getting an ad on air and we're getting desperate! It makes for a stressful work environment, when we're all trying to do what's right and it's just not working....yet.

The good part of the day is coming home to such happy boys and a great husband....and a bit of Malibu Rum that M bought for me today to "take the edge off". But really, the boys are having such a fun time this summer and are thrilled to tell me all about it when I get home at night.

Tonight M had a chicken and salad dinner all ready when I walked in the door and a drink poured for me (he knew it was a rough day and I have two more rough days coming up.) Drink in hand, I listened to T tell me about the little, tiny beach that they found on a new lake today and R tell me about the new soldier's armor that he created out of a coat hanger and some wire shelving squares. The were both talking at once (I do have two ears after all) and were so enthusiastic, that I just smiled and nodded when appropriate.

It's good you have two ears when you listen to two boys talk at once. What a neat feeling to come home to dinner all ready and two happy children and a good drink all poured. I'm wishing more and more days like that for you!!

Ditto to GreatAuntieP's comment. What more could you want or need after a roungh day at the office . . . well, I CAN think of something . . . a nice warm bubblebath and 30 minutes of absolute calm!
