a snapshot of my day thus far
*officially went remote for work
started with the usual – feed the cats, coffee & biscotti, make the bed, etc…
2 hours of working the library’s online chat service
schedule online meetings with department to catch up tomorrow
drive to work to take care of remote staff needs
[stop by Whole Foods for cereal and cookies because I ran out of the first and craved the second]
back home after taking care of business
lunch and panic call with mom
meeting and emails
walk and quick workout to get the jitters out
more emails and a quick check-in meeting on updates to our services that needs to go live ASAP
phone meeting on library-wide situation
heat up dinner because we’re meal prepping again
get to work reading review books that I’ve been too mentally drained to read 😦
I’m checking in on Insta stories throughout the day. Expect #quarantinecats and mental health walks.
on a side note, I posted my February reads 🙂

I plotted my next writing project, and adopted a new method to take control of the middle before it becomes messy (one of my greatest issues as a writer).
Sent out my first batch of queries. And received my first batch of rejections. It’s a learning experience and I received valuable feedback. (ta!)
I’m still working the #ootd tag and maintained a steady stream of posts @lifeingminor despite less than ideal lighting conditions. Such is the curse of the early morning riser.
Received some disappointing news – I have a confirmed cyst (actually, I have more than one, but only one is concerning). Had an MRI and await results.
My #projectpan is going strong – I measured my Kosas and Besame lipsticks and have seen some real progress. Meanwhile, my eye shadows are starting to show a dip and I’ve been playing with various eye looks for daytime.
Went to Knoxville for a conference. The city was lovely and the food was great. Fun times (and too many impulse buys).
Things are looking up at last (fingers crossed, as always), so I thought I’d take a moment to reflect on my goals for 2017 and revise some of my original plans.
I stayed out past my bedtime for the first time in a very long time. Seriously, I’m too old for this. Spent the morning finishing a chapter because I knew I would be drained by lunchtime. I was right.
True Confession time: I broke my Whole30. It’s the first time since the first time (er… words? it makes sense when you think about it), but it happened and it’s ok. Lady time struck hard and I just needed the carbs. All in moderation, but definitely the right choice. I felt better right away.
Here I am looking tired and stuffed full of rice
I’ll get back to full Whole30 once the situation clears. For now, I need carbs. Rice and bread to be precise.
Kitty cats have lazed about and taken over, as per usual.
In other accomplishments: did my nails (only minimal staining) and only spilled a splash of my fancy hair oil when I knocked it off the counter.
I have the clumsies.
