Hello and happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a good week and are looking forward to the weekend. Have a great day 🙂
I woke up to Alex’s alarm and felt so well rested. No idea why but I’ll take it. I got ready for work and went to get breakfast. Remember how I made a big thing of baked oatmeal on Sunday and left it on the counter for days? Apparently I was supposed to refrigerate it to keep it as leftovers. I discovered this because it tasted funky after I heated it up. Oops! Lesson learned. I quickly scrambled an egg and had it with a piece of pumpkin bread for breakfast.
I started my newest book while eating my lunch at work. Sandra Brown is one of my go to thriller writers. Whenever I want a book I know I’ll enjoy I will grab one by her or Harlan Coben. “Play Dirty” is about Griff Burkett who spent the last five years in prison. He has no job outlooks but before his release, gets an invitation from the owner and CEO of an airline, Foster Speakman. Foster and his wife, Laura, want Griff to impregnate Laura in the natural way and not go the typical donor route. I’m so excited to see where this story goes because I was taken about when I found out about the job offer.
After work, I ran an errand before heading home. I tend to leave all of the breakfast dishes for the afternoon so I cleaned those up. Alex had an early night last night so instead of getting home after 7:30, he was home before 5:30! It’s the little things like that which make my day 🙂 He poured us some wine and we hung out on our porch since it wasn’t hot or humid finally.
With Alex working in the city and having a few hours of commuting every day, I’ve picked up some more of the household chores. It totally comes with the category of living with your boyfriend so I don’t mind. Instead of having me heat up leftovers, he decided to let me have a break from cooking and ordered us takeout as a treat. I thought it was super sweet of him and I definitely enjoyed the break. I had a cheesesteak and some cheese fries.
After dinner, we started an episode of “Burn Notice” but turned it off about halfway through so we could just hang out and chat. We headed to bed pretty early (9:15 lol) but we were both so tired. I think our 5:15 wakeup is catching up to us and our bodies are finally tired earlier.
Question of the day: Do you have any kitchen fails you can tell me about so I feel better about mine?
