Work gets in the way of a good time.

I’ve been quiet this week due to a major deal at work.  Twice in the last week I’ve worked past Monkey’s bedtime so I didn’t see very much of him…and it was April vacation. BOOOO!  Thursday night Monkey woke up in the middle of the night crying for me even.  He’s been really clingy when I’m home.  I feel so guilty.  I’m grateful to have the job but I do resent the lost family time and so does he.  Thank goodness that Duhdee is home or I would have a much, much harder time with this.

BUT the deal closed yesterday so Monkey and Duhdee took a ride into the city (on the TRAIN) to come and rescue me from my tower.  We took a walk on Boston Common, took a turn around the Public Gardens and then jumped on the train and went to Herrell’s in Harvard Square for some icecream.  Sure it was nearly dinner time but what the heck, lol.

I’m looking forward to a nice quiet weekend and then a return to normalcy at work.

    Herrell’s is really good but a small (3oz) cup is $3.66. *gasp*

    There is a new ice cream place opening in town? I’ve been to DQ twice in the last 10 years or so, both times were in NH when we took Monkey to Storyland, lol. The trick is don’t go very often :-p

    Hey there, are the Swan Boats still in use on the Commons. The small $3.66 kind of takes away my appetite for an Ice Cream. I am glad you all had a great time.

    The Swan Boats were going full steam (errr…full paddle) ahead, they were packed. The swans were not yet there though, I’m sure they’ll make an appearance soon but I doubt I get Duhdee back to see them. He was complaining about having to go into the city badly enough and we were only downtown for an hour or two.
