Oh man. This week. On Sunday night I looked at my calendar and thought to myself, “wow, what a nice, balanced week ahead!” Lesson learned: never do that… you’ll curse yourself! I was prepared for an easy, breezy, perfectly balanced week and it ended up being a total hot mess. Everything was broken and anything that could go wrong did. So I am beat! Last night I stayed in, ordered sushi, did my skincare, and got caught up on work which might sound depressing but it really truly wasn’t – It made me happy to get caught up on all the stuff I wanted to do: writing, content planning, etc… the things I couldn’t do because the rest of the week was so scrambled.
And I did it from my couch (a quarantine rule has been that I always always work from my desk or at least dining table to feel productive) but for a Friday night I let myself cozy up under a blanket and work at a more leisurely pace. This weekend should be pretty chill. I have a little more work, dinner plans (that may be cancelled because of the storm?) tonight, and plans with my sister. Whatever you’re up to, I hope it’s great! Have a good one and stay safe and dry!!!! XO
