Big City Girls You Make the Rocking World go 'Round

Things have been pretty crazy around here lately. Work usually slows down in the summer and then slowly picks up in the fall but not this year. Nope, this year has been a crazy roller coaster ride complete with vomit.

Okay, not really vomit.

So, in retrospect, this past weekend was not ideal for a getaway - work has been a steady special brand of insane and little things needed to be done around the house. But I'd booked the trip almost 2 months in advance so nothing doing, I headed to the big city.

There are a lot of things you can say against working a 9-5 job- it's tiring, it's a monotonous routine, it doesn't leave enough free time, it's inflexible, etc. etc. But having the ability to take paid time off, guilt-free, with enough money to do some shopping *and* pay for a little sister's fancy meal? Well, that goes firmly in the "pro" column. I feel very lucky.
