Overwhelmed! — and desperately trying to stay calm. I woke up on edge this morning because I didn’t get everything I wanted to get done last weekend.
Geez…and now my heart’s racing after typing that sentence. I better do my deep-breathing exercises!
- Back to school! Where is (or was) your favorite place to study?
Back in high school, I did most of my studying in my room. It was quiet, comfy and free of distractions — no computer or phone, believe it or not (this was the early ’90s).
Then in college, I usually alternated between the library and my room. Some late nights, though, I’d go to this quiet 24-hour study room on campus we called “the morgue.” I’ve always been easily distracted, so I need quiet places to study, depending on the subject.
On rare occasions, and only when the subject was math, for some reason, I’d do my homework at a cafe.
- Again, how do you feel now about boots with fringe?
Still undecided. I saw a couple of pairs at Target last Friday that I thought could look cute on some people, but I don’t know if I’m one of ’em…
We’ll see. I may change my mind at DSW later today. I’m thinking about making a pit stop there after work because shoes always calm me down…
- We’re more than halfway to 2013. What are three things you’d like to accomplish by the end of this year?
Unsurprisingly, most of mine have to do with getting the condo in order. STILL, after more than three years here, I have an unfurnished dining room, so 1), I want to get some frickin’ furniture (YARGH!!), 2) organize my office, thereby making me less prone to fits of rage borne out of disorganization, and 3) get Tabs a new cat tower (one that isn’t falling apart at the seams).
- When are at your most/least productive?
I feel at my best from about 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and my worst from about 4 p.m. onward.
- If you were a breed of cat, what breed would you be?
A Ragdoll! Fluffy, easy going and built for love? Sign me up.
- Best place to get a cup of coffee in your town?
This will probably sound terribly unoriginal, but Starbucks brews a mean cup ’round here.
Which reminds me — their pumpkin lattes are the bomb dot com! I may have to get one of those today…
- Do you watch any late-night talk shows?
I used to, but not so much anymore. I went through a David Letterman phase in college because that’s what EVERYONE I knew watched, but now, truth be told, I’m usually in bed. Plus, I figure if something really funny or interesting transpires, I’ll hear about it the following day online.
- When was the last time you watched a sunset?
I think about a month ago. The windows on one side of our place face west, so I get a pretty good view of the sun falling below some hills off in the distance.
I remember walking into the bedroom upstairs to do something, looking up at the windows and going, “Wow!” The sky was this amazing mix of pink and orange, and it was very comforting, so I just hung out there for a bit and watched.
- Weekly goals:
To start tracking my runs on my workout calendar again, to find a new book to read, and to chill-the-eff out, LOL!
Good morning, sweet friend, and happy Monday! How was your weekend?
Mine was relaxing, but that’s partly because I skipped some of my chores… On Saturday, I went to my nephew’s birthday party and visited my parents out in the East Bay. Then on Sunday I just chilled at home and watched, like, eight back-to-back episodes of My Cat from Hell.
I actually cried for the first time ever watching that show! It was the episode with the 23-year-old orange tabby cat named Pump. [Sniffs] Pump wasn’t good with boundaries in the house, and it was interfering with his owners’ home business, so they were contemplating taking him to a shelter. Please tell me I’m not the only person who bawls her eyes out while watching Animal Planet…
If you have a minute this morning, I’d love to hear from you in the Monday Poll.
