And what a fun link-up--all you have to do is list out the happy in your life. Errbody's got time fo dat!
Date night - Pete and I are going out to dinner and then seeing "The Great Gatsby" tonight. We might take a look at World Market if we have time to pick out new end tables for the living room. This was a nice excuse to spend some extra time on my hair this morning. Which leads me to my next happy...
My hair binder bracelet - I wear a binder on my wrist every day my hair is down--some days I throw one on my wrist even if my hair is already pulled up, just out of habit. I usually don't give it a second thought, but today I noticed my hair binder had worn out and I needed to dig up a new one. It reminded me of when Pete and I were engaged and Pete asked me to wear a binder for our wedding. He had noticed it on our very first date and thought it was a good sign that I just had a simple binder on my wrist instead of a thousand danglies or bangles. And then he noticed that I wore it for every subsequent date and it was one of those quirks he really liked. I didn't wear it for our wedding because I wanted to wear my Dad's watch instead, but I thought it was a very sweet notion. Made me smile to remember it this morning.
Cosmo - He's so fun in the morning! We've been tossing the ball for him in the backyard to run off some energy before work because we haven't had time for morning walks. I really need to plan better to get those walks in because they're important. But it's a lot of fun to see him chase that ball. This morning Pete was on fetch duty, but I got Cosmo set up. I went to let him in the house and discovered he'd wound his leash around our big tree. He knows that when I point to the side, he's supposed to run around the tree, but he hasn't quite made the connection that he needs to run in the direction I'm pointing. So he ran around and around the tree, his leash getting shorter and shorter and shorter until he hit the end of the slack and whipped against the tree. I kept calling his name and pointing and he kept trying to run in the same direction, falling against the tree about 5 times until he decided to try the other direction and managed to unwind himself. Man that was hilarious to watch!
Work - I have NO meeting schedule for today. Uninterrupted desk time, Yay!
4MChallenge - I feel so focused with this challenge. I've kept up on my workouts (though I did skip JM on Wednesday due to Mangria - see Instagram). And I can tell it's paying off! I'm about ready to move on to level 3 of the 30-Day Shred and I've NEVER made it there before. Yipe!
