Thirsty Thursday: Welcome to April!

It’s Thursday! Which means tomorrow is Friday – woo hoo! But more importantly, it means its time for another edition of Thirsty Thursday!

I’m going to be honest, though…it’s been such a crazy week, I think the only thing I’m thirsty for is to remember all the good things that have happened in the past few days…and some time with the girls! Busy weeks stink from the mom point of view 😦

First up, our Sales & Marketing team was together (minus 2 at a conference) and I love it when our Seattle and Houston peeps are around! We get a lot of awesome stuff done and they’re just plain fun to be around. And we got to celebrate a kickin’ Q1 by rock climbing at Vertical Dreams in Manchester last night. I accept the pain today because the glory of making it up a wall and pushing my limits/confronting my fear was SO worth it!


A whole mess of us went to the edSocialMedia Summit at Walnut Hill School for the Arts on Tuesday…fantastic presenters, great topics, and fabulous people! Always good to see and learn from how others are doing what you’re doing in the social media and marketing sphere of the education world.

Sprinkle in Easter Sunday at my sister’s house, a site visit for our big User Conference, and a killer workout with my fab personal trainer (and, in full disclosure, friend) Sue, I’m beat.

Ahhhh, but I do remember what I’m thirsty for…

I get to see 2 of my best friends in a little over a week, and I can’t wait! But first, I need to finish my taxes!!!

So, lets recap my thirsts….
Week 1 – organization. Check.
Week 2 – return to nice friendly cheerful Maura. Check.
Week 3 – get our taxes done and play with the girls this weekend!!!!

Lets see how we’ll do!

Are your taxes done?


Thirsty Thursday: Full Moon Edition

This Thirsty Thursday thing is the greatest thing I’ve come up with in a while! It’s been a week since my last (and first) Thirsty post, and I have a clean garage bay (and a dry parking space!) thanks to Jason and Nonna, and my home office is user friendly once again!

Check it out!


The shelves still need some help…


…but I’m a work in progress.

So, why the full moon edition? I have been a crab. It’s got to be the lunar pull…seriously.
And it’s not just me! I think everyone is feeling a little bit o’ crazy this week.

But… it brings me to my thirst for the week…a good mood.

I am seriously thirsting for my cheery disposition to come and relieve the crabby, stressed out Mamma that I’ve become.

And I can guarantee I’m not the only one who is thirsting for that!

How has the full moon impacted your life this week?
