Treats of the Week - Ugh

I know what you're thinking.  Typical Ashlie, forgot that yesterday was Monday because of the holiday weekend.  I know, I'm sure you were all quite deprived of my genius.  Truth is, I didn't forget about my Monday blog this time.  Instead, I was stuck in the emergency room with Vivian until about 11:30.  Nothing serious - nothing some antibiotics haven't helped.  She was such a trooper though - didn't complain at all, even though we were about 3 and a half hours.  It was just the capper to a week that included leaks in two spots of the house (ugh) and me getting served a subpoena at work.  (Yeah, that was fun.)  Anyway, it's been quite the week.  I've basically had the same expression as Fender here.

At least tomorrow is Wednesday, so the week is half over.  Right?  Right.

  • When I got home last night from the emergency room, it was about 12:30.  I was exhausted, not only from the late hour and the wait at the hospital, but also because brainiac me parked in the parking garage like I always do.  The problem there is that while we could walk through the hospital to get from Point A to Point B when we arrived, we couldn't do the same when it was time to leave.  So I had to walk all the way around the hospital with Vivian.  So yeah, by the time I got home I was completely done and ready for bed.  And what do I spy hiding behind m Keurig on the chalkboard backsplash?  A sweet little secret note.




  • I found the BEST ceramic tray at the thrift store the other day - it is proudly sitting on my desk at work, holding my paperclips.


  • I saw Batman vs. Superman on Friday, despite my reservations.  It actually isn't as bad as the critics have said.  It has a lot of issues, sure.  But there was also a lot I liked about it.  One thing I really liked?  SO MANY VESTS.  Vulture agrees with me.



  • Easter went really well - Vivian had a great time and didn't end up too spoiled.  It was great to hang out with all the kids in the beautiful weather on Easter Sunday!
  • It was a double dose of movies this weekend since Kimberly and I headed to see Allegiant.  It was decidedly okay, but dinner was awesome and the company was even better!
  • I had my last travelling French court date until June last week.  They always seem to cluster, so it's always a bit of a relief when a blast of them is done.
All right - I'm tapping out.  I have a presentation tomorrow (I should probably start to work on that) and I'm still whipped from yesterday and the long weekend.  Hope the Easter Bunny was good to you guys!
