Monday mornings don’t hold the rushed trappings of the start of a busy week around here. Don’t be too jealous, this is because I work Monday evenings, so I still have to get myself up and out of the house, but I get to be more leisurely about it.
I get to put my coffee in a mug instead of a travel thermos.
So, I figure (most) Monday mornings, we can chat over coffee.
Speaking of a late start on Monday, I accidentally stayed up until 2am doing a bit of reading (that book on the left of the tray, to be precise) and slept in even more than usually this morning. This is my late twenties: I can barely stay away for midnight to ring in the new year, but get me into a good book and time ceases to exist. I’m not too mad about it.
But I am mad that I forgot to submit my answers to my Bachelor Fantasy League last week. I’ve had a solid lead in my group the whole season and now I’m trailing by 30 points with 3rd place only 10 behind me.
I can’t even.
Though, my husband hasn’t played since week two, by the looks of his sad little double digit score, so I guess I can’t feel too bad.
(Yes, my team name is TheRightReasons because that’s obviously why I’m here.)
The shoes from last post? Still in stock. Still not mine. No one to blame but myself. I hate it when that happens. Hmph.
It’s warm but windy today. The weather is really throwing me for a loop because I kind of lose track of how to dress for not-freezing during winter in Chicago because it’s never supposed to be not-freezing until, like, April. Oh, then there’s the whole global warming thing and the administration’s denial of it. Infuriating.
Which reminds me, I need to throw some blank poster boards and jumbo sharpies into my car before work today. Word is that a new travel EO is being signed and, though I work late, I’m (relatively) young, have access to coffee, and can manage a few extra hours out at an airport if need be. Again, infuriating.
Well, that escalated quickly, so I’ll be off to watch the latest episode of Big Little Lies before I have to get on with my day.
(P.S. Big Little Lies is a (so far) perfect book-to-screen adaptation. Read the book ASAP, in audio format if you can. I really, really enjoyed it and think you might, too.)
