Yay for the weekend!

I so need a little down time away from the computer and work.  I had a reality check yesterday while I was working in my office.  My kids were in the neighboring room playing with the babysitter.  I overheard this conversation ...

Joe (my 4 year old) to the BBsitter: "You pretend you're me and I'm Mom."
BB: "OK. Hi Mom"
Joe: "Ask me to play, OK?"
BB: "Do you want to play with me?"
Joe: "Not right now sweetie. I can't. I have to work on my computer. "

Daggers! Right in the heart!

I have had my ass glued in front of the computer all week trying to get brochures, CAD drawings and every other little annoying thing done that requires Photoshop and Illustrator and loads of hair pulling and the patience of Jove.  I am so done! Need a break! And the fact that my kids are role playing my neglect only makes it all the suckier.  So I am going to try to disconnect from it all for a day or two. 

I hope you all have a great weekend! I leave you with some of my faves from Pinterest.

This reminds me of my childhood. 
I used to read a book that had a stream in it and I always imaged it looked something like this.
Happy Deja-vu, I guess.

So cool. Would love to do this, but probably never will.

Ditto for this...

Peace out folks!
