i wasn't really supposed to be working today. i have the rest of the week off, and we're headed on a whirlwind trip to both philadelphia (tuesday & wednesday) and miami (thursday & friday). but josh said that he was going to have to work, so i figured i might as well save a vacation day.
except now he's changed his mind. ahh well. perhaps the next 9 hours on the pager will help me appreciate the rest of the week off of it! and staying up late to do some vacation prep will help me get converted to a normal-person (ie, not up at 5 am) schedule for the week. finally, if josh is home today, he can help tackle some of the chores on this list (right, babe?!) . . .
☑ empty out fridge
☑ buy gifts!
☑ generally clean up (it makes homecoming so much more fun)
☑ organize tickets, make sure transportation is set up
scenes from a sunday
i went from holding a newborn so precious i could feel my ovaries swelling:
to enjoying a carefree meal (with adult beverages) that made me feel okay about my TTC issues.
ie, everything whole foods had out to taste? i bought.
josh and dr. s. had a rum-tasting: nicaragua vs. the dominican republic. i didn't really like either!
k. (dr. s's girlfriend) works part-time as a sommelier at one of the more famous local steakhouses. i was so impressed with this presentation!
um, i can't believe i ate truffles twice in one weekend. who am i!?
the sweet ending:
if i were off today, i would:
✰ complete the above checklist
✰ go shopping for a new running jacket
✰ find 100 things to get rid of (i really do want to do this!)
✰ watch the glee i missed last week
✰ enjoy a leisurely yoga session
✰ be in bed right now.
it's wishful thinking, but since i have a string of days off up ahead, i just have to be patient and i can still make all of this happen!
what are your thanksgiving plans? do you prefer hosting or being hosted? we did make our own turkey in 2008, and it was a lot of fun! but if given the option, i prefer going to visit family.
workout: 6 miles @ 8:58 to round out a solid 25 for the week. i just could not get enough of the beautiful running weather!
