Cicada here, reporting live from my new office. What do you think? (What I think is that the lighting in my house is not as flattering as the lighting in my old office when I was actually working in a real workplace.) This week, things got really really cold. And I still refuse to turn on the heating to my house. I mean, we just turned off the air conditioning a few days ago. Shouldn't mother nature reward me with some small period of time when she can just heat and cool my house? Plus, I don't think that there's really anything better than getting all snuggly cozy warm during the cooler months. I wait all year long till it's time to wear sweaters again and always snuggle under a blanket in front of the tv.
So that's why I decided that I may as well move my office downstairs for at least a bit of the day every day. That way I get to be warm and extremely cozy for a bit of the day every day. Right now, I'm upping the cozy ante by drink-eating a bowl of diabetes-friendly split-pea soup. And I have decided that steamed milk will be my new best friend. Unfortunately I don't live near a Starbucks (who does in Utah County?) but there is a coffee shop down the street that I might have to try out. Today, I'll just settle for some warmed-up milk with flavored syrup.
Anyway. As long as I save my blog surfing (which is work related because most of the blogs I read are design blogs) for my downstairs-office time, I should have plenty of relaxing, soothing, comforting couch time where I can accomplish some good work. Emails, too. I don't need my big screen to answer emails. Hey... does this mean that I can deduct my living room AND my couch this year? Awesome.
About yesterday, I never got a picture of what I wore, which is probably for the best. I spent the night at my brother's house in Salt Lake, and packed an outfit that I'd never tried on before. I'm not sure I would have worn it if it hadn't been my only option. And I just forwent the tights anyway, because the only tights I could have gotten away with wearing with that outfit were natural fishnets (my favorite kind of fishnets by far, as long as the netting is very tight), and I couldn't buy any at Target when I tried. So I'll have to keep an eye out for natural fishnets.
I feel like this post is rambly. Oh well. Hey, everyone. I went in for my blood test so that I can get my rhoGAM shot tomorrow. Does anyone know if I get this in the butt? Someone suggested that I'm going to get it in the butt. Ladies?
Oh crap. I just got an email requesting that some work-work be done, so I have to unsnuggle and get back up to my upstairs office.
