I am not 100% sure what the week before last. I definitely hung out with puppies and watched Gilmore Girls and did laundry and avoided some key things that I had to do. So basically, a typical October week. I also went over to Becky’s and watched her bake cookies, so I did see two humans, at least.
I tried to vent about being of a certain age with a built-in muscle memory for two spaces after a period, and how I’ll never change. And the only response I got from Becky was, “This angst is 16 years over-due, and it took an entire year for me to beat that habit” which just reinforced how I won’t be torturing myself for a year for something that is truly ridiculous. And then I ate a cookie and moved on with my life.
I tried looking at the last 3 years of this time in case there was a nugget of interesting stuff to share, but it sure does look like I hung out with puppies, photographed those puppies for Fall cards and packed every year, so let’s just move on to the part where I took my suitcase to a new location.
The best part of the show was walking around, playing games and then having my boss buy me anything I wanted. I’m not sure it gets better than that. We also met lots of designers and had crepes and I got to see Kathi! And I read the first 4 books of the ACOTAR series. And then we had a flight delay and cancellation which lead to a 12-hour delay in getting home and having to run to our gates, become super dehydrated and hungry and tired and I still managed to be pleasant and professional!
I’m going to leave the story there for now, and try to jump in with more excitement next time. I hope you’re all having a super fun October.
Miss you lots, and love you more.
