Monday sneaks up a lot these days, doesn’t it? I wish I could say this week is a little less crazy but I have four 12+ hour days ahead. Full speed ahead friends.
Marvelous is… a 10 mile run on Saturday with Molly that fulfilled the needy side of me. But boy did we slaughter our legs. I am pretty sure we ran uphill the whole time with a pretty speedy pace. She knows how to whip me in racing shape for sure. (Be sure to watch the whole video, you won’t regret it)
Marvelous is… realizing a healthy distance has to be found. You can’t win all battles, you can’t make people realize what they don’t want to realize, period. Rather than beating a dead bush, I have found it is sometimes better to put those blinders on and move on. Reduce the contact, selfish but a necessary selfish.
Marvelous is… a new obsession.
Marvelous is… watching the Superbowl solely for their ads. Sure the football game was on but I barely even glanced at the tv during that time. I watch the game for the ads, it is the advertising girl in me that loves seeing the new approaches companies are throwing out. Plus, my old marketing professor from college tweets throughout the Superbowl about the ads – highly entertaining and always spot on. (High school musical was on at the same time doing their ‘learn the moves’ so it was a tough switch back and forth going on. )
Marvelous is… being able to chat with my sister on the phone. I miss that goober a whole freaking lot. I love catching up on what is going on in her college life, the new research job she landed and hilarious boy stories. She did mention her relationship was tested with her boyfriend when they assembled an Ikea dresser. True test people.
Marvelous is… a sense of humor. Oh boy did I get and need some quality laughs this weekend. I have my blends to thank for that.
Marvelous is… the shift at work on Sunday flying by. It was busy but not too busy. It just seems like work has been flying by when I am there, must mean I am getting used to the groove.
Marvelous is… taking time to smell the roses, or the icicles I guess. Saturday was my last day for the next month or more that I won’t have to work either job. Ouch. But that means I ended up just exploring some local shops and areas I had not been. Pure zone out time for me but exactly what I needed. (Hilarious clip) (This one is even better)
Marvelous is… for once having this desire to be social. Weird, makes me sound like a bit of a freak but I spent the majority of the last six years perfectly content in isolation. Since moving to DC, since kind of finding more of my voice, all I have wanted to do is get out there. I may not have made great strides yet but having even the remote desire to feels crazy new for me.
Marvelous is… a ticket booked home. Boo ya, I bit the bullet and bought myself a ticket for a long weekend at the end of March to go home. Yes, it may just be a weekend but that is all I can really afford to miss for work. Plus, it wasn’t too expensive. Boston here I come… well in two months.
Today I work both jobs aka the Mondays from hell. BUT I am not complaining. Instead I will just give it a woof. I am trying people, I am trying.
Question: What is marvelous about your Monday?
