Hey TKW Family!  My apologies for getting this out super late on Sunday but this past week I was the sickest I have ever been in my life and I was traveling for work on top of it. I got home late Friday night, spent all day Saturday trying to get a teensy bit of rest in between the 9 million things I had to get done for my super early flight out this morning to California.

I’m sitting in the hotel right now, fighting to keep my eyes open but I cannot miss posting a weekly menu.

I have SOOOOOOOOOOOOOO MUCH to catch you guys up on but let’s do that later this week k?  I need to get to bed as my day starts super early tomorrow and it’s going to be another hellish week.

Happy Sunday TKW Family from a very sick TKW household. Both of us are down for the count with this death plague that is going around. So far the doctor doesn’t think it’s the flu but severe upper respiratory infections but I don’t know, he’s had it for 10 days and I’m going on 5 so we’ll see. So it’s Superbowl Sunday. Who’s out there partying? What are your game day eats? Normally we have a super bowl party but we didn’t this year as one, we’re sick and two, I’m not home. I’m actually out of town this week for work.

I’m not too happy about this as I don’t feel well and you know what it’s like when you’re sick you want to be home in your bed surrounded by your stuff. But since I’m not Oprah-rich, I must work. I don’t mind really as I do love what I do. It’s just the worst timing. I hate leaving Mr. Fantabulous when he’s so sick.

But anyway back to the game tonight. I’ll probably only watch some of the ads and most definitely the halftime show. I mean HELLO – #TeamJT Love me some Justin Timberlake! The only thing I do miss are the foods served during the game. I did stop at a local Walmart up here and grab some food for the week since my room has a full kitchen. SWEET!

Lord let this week go fast!

Hey TKW Family!  Wow is it Sunday already? So let met take a poll of you guys. How many of you have had or currently have that nasty, NASTY flu/death plague going around? I’m battling it (and I think winning as I’m not too, too bad) but Mr. Fantabulous has it. While he hasn’t gone to the doctor’s yet (he’s going tomorrow if he’s not better), I don’t think it’s the flu everyone else has. But instead I think he has a really bad upper respiratory infection. He’s been down for the count since Wednesday. Apparently the lead singer of his band got sick first and by Wednesday he texted everyone saying he was pretty sick. A few hours later it surfaced with Mr. Fantabulous as well as a few of the other guys.

Then at work I found out that an entire department all had the flu and have been out all week. Many of my friends have it. If you’re here in Pittsburgh I honestly blame the weather as to why folks are so sick. No I’m not a doctor but when you go from 65F one day, 27 the next, -12F the following and 38F the next it’s inevitable that people are going to get sick. I feel bad though as I hate seeing him sick. Coughing, wheezing and just flat-out crappy. I’d say the ONLY benefit, if you will of him getting sick, is that he’s actually resting and taking a break. He needs it, you know. We all do.

So on top of taking care of him most of last week/weekend, my week was just a nightmare. I swear it literally was just a week of Mondays. Every day was worse than the prior and by Friday I was so frustrated that I actually asked Mr. Fantabulous if he needed me to run to Home Depot or Lowes. I just needed a break. LOL Yes it has to be that bad for me to ask something like that. But again, I do love what I do so I deal.

Okay, enough complaining. So tell me about YOUR week! What’s going on in your lives?

Let’s talk about the house remodel, shall we? It’s coming along rather nicely. We were able to hang 3 of the largest bar mirrors in the billiards room. I still have to clean them. Once he’s better we can hang the neon signs and the rest of the mirrors/signs. At that point the billiards room will be done. I should be able later today to start moving my cookbooks down into the office supply room downstairs that we just finished. Did you see the pictures and video on Instagram? I’m in LOVE with them!
What’s your favorite room in your house?

Happy Sunday TKW Family!  So for many of us, it was our first full week back to work. Kinda sucked didn’t it? lol Don’t get me wrong, I love what I do but man it sure was nice having short weeks. And since we didn’t hit the lottery when it was like 500 million dollars it’s back to the ol’ grind for pretty much all of us. Though truthfully I can’t really complain because honestly, if I won, I’d still have to work. Oh sure the first few months I’d not work to take it all in, get my “new life” set up –  legal stuff. However after that I’d go back to being Simply Lori. I’d most definitely expand TKW. I’d open up a brick and mortar, offering classes and deliciousness. I don’t necessarily want a full-fledged restaurant. Lord know. I know how much work went into running a pizza shop. I want no part of a full-on restaurant. But my “day” job … honestly I think I’d miss it or at least that type of work. I’m such a nerd at heart, loving technology, code and compliance.

Hmmm… what about you? If you won, would your outlook on work change? What would you do?

So last week it was typical Pittsburgh weather – mid 40’s at the beginning of the week, mid 60’s on Thursday and -8 on Friday with 8″ of snow. Pittsburgh – the only city where you get all for seasons in 1 week. Heck, sometimes in one day even. Ah but I love this city. It’s absolutely beautiful and has such a home-town feel to it. You feel welcome here. I was ridiculously busy with TKW stuff though not so much on publishing posts. Sorry about that. I strive to post 4 -5 times a week but sadly I was only able to do 3. I had a ton of “office” work to get done so that took up almost all of my time. Then Mr. Fantabulous’ company issued out a new kit to Facebook only first and it was insane the number of orders they got. His company is the only one in the world that creates this kit for the 2016 Camaro and well as you can imagine, it was very, VERY well received. So with that I had to help out though today I’m stuck, after I get my work done, updating his website to add the new part and items. Ugh… If you know someone who builds out an e-commerce website, send them my way. His company is actually interviewing for a new web company/person to redesign his site.
I think we really need to move to 4-day work weeks.

Well we made it one week into the new year. Be honest, for those of you that had to go back to work this week, how was it? For me it was ROUGH to say the least. I had so much time off from Thanksgiving throughout Christmas that working even a short week last week was rough. I have no idea what I’m going to do this week when I have to work 5 whole days… IN A ROW! AND one of those days I actually have to put on real pants (and a bra!) as I have to go into the office. LOL But let me tell you folks that think working from home is a breeze; it’s not. Oh sure it has its perks – no commute, your own bathroom, no need to wear dress/work clothes, heck you don’t even have to brush your hair if you don’t want to.

But there are major drawbacks; at least I think so. It’s really hard to ‘log off’ as you’ve essentially brought your work home with you. I can’t tell you how many times at night Mr. Fantabulous has found me on my work computer working because I figured out a way to fix something or realized I forgot to do something. And you don’t really have the personal interaction with office folks. I miss going to lunch with my friends and just getting out of the house in general.

However if I had to choose one and only one for the rest of my career, it would be working from home. This whole wearing real clothes is rough. Give me pajama pants and my pig slippers any day over a suit and pumps!

Is your office dress code casual or professional?
