Hello everyone! Glad to have you join me for virtual coffee this weekend!

If we sat down for coffee, I’d tell you about how today is Charlie’s birthday! He turns one year old. We’ve spoiled him a little bit. I tweeted this morning about how he came and snuggled in bed with me. I ended up going out and getting him a few things at the pet store… namely just some dog treats (which he loves), a new toy (which he likes), and a little mint green cat bed (he hasn’t touched).

Luckily, Charlie’s “brofur” Toby seems to like it, although Toby is a bit big for it. At least it’s getting some use, so I don’t feel like it was a total waste of money!

He also got some birthday wishes from his NYC family via my facebook. You can say it…. this cat is seriously spoiled!

I’d also talk to you about change. My mom found out that her job that she has had for the past 10 years is ending at the end of the month. Although we knew that it could possibly be coming, it didn’t make getting the news any easier. And today is “angry day”. Angry about the state cutting the funds that affected the outcome, and angry for the daycare providers that she worked with, and the children who were served by the programs. The children will be the ones who will be most affected by this in the end. It’s just such a bummer. I’m trying to do my best to make sure that I am taking care of myself financially so that my mom doesn’t have to worry about me.

I’d tell you I had a good week at work with the kids. And that besides being tired, I’m doing well. Though my skin has been super dry lately. I got some new moisturizing lotion, and hoping that adding that to my morning routine will help!

I’d tell you that I’m getting caught up with posting my 30 days of lists.

And now I will stop talking your ear off. How was your week?

Also, go check out some of the other people enjoying their virtual coffee/tea!

And thank Alissa for hosting!
