Looking For Something?
Daily Archives: January 7, 2011
I slept an extra 30 minutes this morning because it was Friday and I didn’t have to think quite so hard about looking professional. When I got out of bed I realized Garrett had left the heat and the Christmas tree lights on for me when I woke up. Tonight is our last night admiring the tree, tomorrow it is being picked up by a Boy Scout Troop doing a fundraiser. The house looked pretty all lit up and it was toasty and warm.
The coffee was already brewed and in the carafe since Garrett worked early so I sat down with my new book and leisurely enjoyed my first cup. I checked my email and it wasn’t full of spam. I checked out the CrossFit WOD for tonight and it didn’t look overwhelming. The shower was piping hot and my new shower gel smelled delicious. I got dressed in a pair of jeans that I haven’t worn in years and they are a little big. I put on my hot pink shoes.
It’s not payday but we aren’t broke. It’s Friday and Garrett and I have the weekend off together (which doesn’t always happen now that he is back at Peet’s.) We’re grilling flank steak tonight for dinner in our favorite marinade. The weather appears to be cooperating with that plan so far. New netflix showed up in the mailbox yesterday so we have two movies ready to be watched (random choices, I know!)
I’m feeling exceptionally creative and inspired, like the weekend is my oyster.
Today has been a good day, and I guess I just felt like that was worth mentioning.
