Fake it 'til you make it

It's M-Day - the last day my cube neighbor works before she goes on maternity leave. I have a feeling it's going to be a rough day! There are already balloons and decorations up in her cube, and I suspect there are going to be a LOT of well-wishers popping by to congratulate her and say good-bye. I was fully gearing up to throw myself a little private pity party across the aisle from her, but I just read Dot's blog and decided to change my attitude.

It's okay if I can't be 100% thrilled to pieces for my co-worker, but she doesn't have to know that. This is a happy time for her and I should at least act supportive. So I'll fake it! And then I can relax for the next couple months until she comes back to work, or until someone else around here gets KU.

Besides, they're going to have cake today! CAKE!! What's not to like about that?

Plus, this evening I'm going to the Dodger game with my oldest friend in the world, J, who's also one of the biggest Dodger fans I know. We used to go to games together as little girls and we're continuing the tradition! Hubs is heading out of town this morning for a bachelor party weekend in Laughlin, NV so I'm surrounding myself with my girls until he gets back on Sunday. I miss him already! But I'm gonna make the best of it.

Hope everyone's Friday zooms by so we can all get started on enjoying the weekend!

Eat some cake for me! I just gave it up.

You can have a pity party if you want to! :)

I'm proud of you, Kitty. I hope your Friday was okay and you were able to at least fake it. Sounds like you have a fun weekend on tap - enjoy!!
