A Day in the Life

Henry snuggles up to his dad. So sweet and sleepy this morning!

Starting my commute. I decided to be extra efficient and wear curlers for my drive – a great decision for such a rainy morning. The curls fell out in less than an hour – but I think the funny looks I got from my fellow commuters more than made up for my hair’s lack of va-va-voom.


8:00 a.m.
I’m usually pulling into the office parking lot by now, but the weather is making my drive way longer this morning. At least I have a beautiful blue sky to enjoy on the road! Oh. Wait. b_9

9:00 a.m.
Dreary, dreary morning meeting. I took the easy way out and drove down to campus for this one – nobody wants to hoof it across the fields and parking lots in this kind of weather.


10:30 a.m.
Meeting: over. Brain: scrambled. I needed emergency coffee, so I made my way to the closest drive through with a decent cup of coffee. When I opened what I thought was a bag of cream and sugar, I found cream, sugar, AND a free bonus donut! Are you flirting with me, Krispy Kreme?


11:00 a.m.
Opened my office door for a quick breath of fresh air. As you can see, my quarters are a little tight – when I start to feel claustrophobic, I open the door until I feel a little less closed in.


12:00 p.m.
Trying to figure out a way to make the web page I’m building work the right way. Projects like this can be frustrating, but it’s satisfying to get scrappy and figure out a way around the problem.


1:00 p.m.
Stopped by Whole Foods for lunch – look at this cute little snack pack! Filled with my favorites – it’s like they saw me coming.

While I was at Whole Foods, I ran into my old friend Roy G. Biv hanging around the produce section:



2:00 p.m.
I see you, sunshine on my staircase.
My office has a fire escape! It’s like West Side Story, but with less snapping and gang violence.


3:30 p.m.
It’s the final countdown! Trying to keep focused and wrap up the day so I can peace out of this popsicle joint at 4:30.


4:45 p.m.
Stoplight snapshot of my latest manicure. I told Josh after I painted them that these are “the fanciest my nails have ever been.”

5:00 p.m.
Hanging out with the puppies! While I was unloading my car, I heard one loud bark. When I looked up, I saw these two goofball faces gazing at me through the front window, waiting for me to open the door. Dogs are the best.b_henry

And now, if you’ll excuse me, it’s time to hang out with this little chubby cheeked chipmunk.
