I’m the first of my department to arrive at work again today. I literally laughed out loud as I walked down the empty aisle of cubes. The boss and one other employee are on vacation, but everyone else must just be having a morning.

I lived in Florida as a kid, and not only do I remember this commercial, but I also went to Silver Springs with my Girl Scout troop in 4th or 5th grade. Glass bottom boats FTW! t.co/7k5JnrvKoe

Reading Superfudge to my kindergartener was going great — until we read Chapter 10 tonight and I had to real quick skip some pages that dealt with a truth about Santa that I’m not ready to reveal. Such are the risks of reading a 4th-grade-level book to my six-year-old.

Waiting for Women’s Olympic Figure Skating coverage to continue when my cable goes out. Perhaps this is a hint that it’s time for bed.

I have recently rediscovered the fabulousness that is @JohnnyGWeir. Not only did I fall down a YouTube rabbit hole of his figure skating performances last night, but I’ve also realized that he’s a pretty fantastic human being who “gets” social media.

It’s 8:30am and I’m the 1st one at work in my department. Four of the nine are on vacation today, so the others must be either working from home today or running later than me. 🙂

Lunch with Mom on his 100th Day of Kindergarten

I had to pick him up before lunch on his 100th day of school for a doctor’s appointment, which led to a trip to the lab, after which we stopped for lunch at a place that used to be a lot speedier for dine-in service than it is now. As a result, he missed both gym and music class… but he was excited to eat lunch with me, anyway.

Right after I snapped this “Hey, Connor” pic, he gave me a grin and a thumbs-up that I failed to capture. So it goes.

Yes, he is wearing a homemade 100 Pikachus iron-on t-shirt, fabricated by Yours Truly.

My bathroom scale said I was down more than two pounds from last week; the #weightwatchers scale said I lost 0.6 lbs. Meh.
