// 8:00 am - alarm
In which I opened my eyes, saw no conceivable reason for arising at that moment, rolled over and went back to sleep.
// 9:00 am - alarm #2
In which I opened my eyes again. Decided there was no conceivable reason why I should still be in bed, and got up. Pondered life's questions in the shower. Admired the monochrome color palette in my favorite corner of my bedroom.
(I had a sparkly gold starburst mirror hanging over my bed but it fell down one night and stabbed me in the head while I was sleeping so that mirror is in timeout until I'm done being angry with it, so possibly forever.)
// 9:30 am - breakfast
In which I consumed Raisin Bran, a clementine, a pot of earl grey tea (in my ADORABLE Anne of Green Gables teapot), and the daily crossword.
// 10:00 am - hair
In which I spent an amount of time (that normal people would ready themselves entirely in) attempting to copy a hairstyle I saw on Pinterest.
Not bad, self.
// 10:30 am - dress
In which I admonished myself for having wasted most of the morning.
If we're talking about fashion plates, I'm the blue plate special. I've got J. Crew tastes on a Target budget. #thestruggle
Button-down: Old Navy
Jeans: Old Navy
Flats: Gap Outlet
// 10:45 am - work-ish
In which I procrastinated by searching work exchange programs in Europe and then tweeting about it. And then when that was done, I fiddled about with my resume, followed up on job applications, wrote some emails, and applied for more jobs. Finally gave in and updated my SitterCity nanny profile because desperate times, people.
// 1:00 pm - lunch
In which I ate turkey, avocado, lettuce, and mustard on multigrain. I forgot to take a picture but it was just a sandwich so I trust you know what that looks like.
// 2:00 pm - crafts
In which I finished a couple of birthday cards and took some photos of a project for an upcoming DIY post.
(Not sharing those because you'll see them on the blog on Friday.)
// 3:00 pm - errands
In which I stood in line at the post office for approximately 6 days, was treated to a rendition of "Endless Love" by a gentleman in sweatpants at the Dollar Tree, made it to the bank before realizing I left my check at home, and a stop at the grocery store where I discovered that I'm secretly 80 years old.
(Gluten free crackers, goat cheese, two boxes of tea, two cans of soup, a package of chicken, and FiberOne granola bars. All that's missing is the prune juice.)
// 6:00 pm - supper
In which I ate baked chicken in a salad with a roasted sweet potato half.
// 7:30 pm - Starbucks
In which I stopped by for a bit of hot chocolate, reading, planning, and hipster-y Instagram pictures. Also to distract my friend Kimberly while she was working. We may or may not have planned an entire party while she was on break. Yes we did.
In which I answered the day's question from Q & A a Day, reread parts of Relish: My Life In the Kitchen (super cool graphic memoir/cookbook), and studied Ezekiel 3.
// 11:30 pm - sleep
In which I turned out the light and thought about pleasant things so I would have good dreams.
Tell me, what did January 14th look like for you? I'd love to hear!
