You'll be happy to know that I am in a much better mood today. I was even feeling happy and energized this morning and that NEVER happens. The first part of my day that went well was that I actually left for work on time (well, very very close to on time anyway).
I spent my commute singing to the playlist "my favorite sing alongs" and was really enjoying my commute until I was stuck in traffic on the innerbelt bridge, about half way through my commute and I looked down only to find that my gas light was on. I had a bit of a panic attack because I had no idea when it came on or how much longer I had until I ran out of gas. I pushed my luck and drove it all the way to the street where I work. But lucky for me, I didn't run out of gas! And I paid under $4.00 a gallon. Who knew that one day you would consider $3.96/gallon a "bargain."
When I got to work, I started my Pandora music player and the first song randomly selected for me was Mrs. Robinson by Simon and Garfunkel. Talk about my luck today! I received an email that a pair of shoes I ordered earlier in the week, were named the Editors Pick! I had a super productive day and when I left work, for the first time in what feels like forever, it wasn't raining!
When I got home, I got the mail to find that I had received the new pair of shoes I ordered online and they FIT! I also had a bachelorette party invitation for my favorite bride-to-be, Aubrey. And I was even excited for Pat when I saw that he got both his Sports Illustrated AND his ESPN magazine, both in the same day! The weather was still beautiful and I was able to take the Gradster for a nice long walk.
I cooked a yummy dinner (new recipe, too) and was listening to Jack Johnson En Concert, which I borrowed from my neighbor. It's his live album from the year we saw him in concert, the concert where we got engaged! Enjoyed a nice, cold beer with dinner and watched American Idol.
I hope you had a good Thursday, too!
