Thoughts from a Thursday


1. How can I be this exhausted with only two days of work under my belt?

2. Don’t ever try to eat a hot dog too fast when you’re in a rush! I had approximately 7 minutes to eat this dinner before my partners cabinet meeting and it didn’t sit too well…[love all the different flavors at WF though]

3. Great Harvest cinnamon chip bread is heavenly and the doughy end piece is the best. And I’m not just sayin’ that because I’m related to the owners.


4. I was surprised when I got a laptop at work! I had really been hoping for a desktop though. Writing long reports on a small screen is not so fun. One day I’ll buy myself a desktop!

5. I am soooooooo happy tomorrow is Friday. That feeling with never get old.

6. Matt is still basically immobile, which means daily life takes twice the time because I have to compensate. It’s like having a child, which I kinda like. However, the experience has made me so thankful that he has his own legs.

7. I ordered new boots online!!!!

8. I returned to spinning for the first time since before Christmas and it was hard to get motivated. I think I need some new music in my life. Any recommendations?

9. I can’t stop thinking about the Italian cruise ship accident. It must have been so terrifying for those on board:(

10. I plan to sleep a LOT this weekend. Starting now.

    Try asking if they have any extra monitors at work. Plug it into the side of the laptop and you either get 2 screens, 1 big 1 small, or you can just work off the big one. I did that for my net book at home which is even smaller than a laptop. Makes it soo much easier when I’m working for longer periods of time.

    First time commenter here! Ive been reading for a while and love your blog! As for music while exercising, I’ve been obsessed with all of GirlTalk lately while running and biking. You just have to go faster while you listen to it, so motivating and tons of fun!
