Week in the Life: Wednesday

Long day, short post. Once I got to work, I forgot to take photos.

I started my day with breakfast and reading some blogs. I did not get up until 6:30 A.M., so I was running a little late. This was the calm part of my day.

Alex is out the door and on his way to school. He likes the tools on this shirt.

I stole the term "five mile radius" from a friend, and I do not have to go outside of mine many days. From my driveway to my parking spot at work this morning was only 3.8 miles. My short commute averages out to about 10 minutes.

I have been listening to NPR lately on my morning drive into work. I am surprised that I did not discover NPR earlier in life.

Once I got to work, this became my mantra:
The last few orientations get extra crazy, and we have hit that time in the summer. I spent a lot of my day telling worried freshmen and their parents that "it will all work out."

One of the highlights of my day was having an impromptu lunch with my mom. I saw her having lunch on the way to buying my lunch. It is nice working on the same campus.

The other highlight of my day was having a potluck dinner with the book club ladies. I made some hummus. I am in the most laid back book club. There is no shaming if you don't get to finish the book. Since summer is busy for people, we are taking two months to read our current book and just had dinner and chatted this evening. I even went outside of my "five mile radius" and inside Loop 410 for the evening!

Good Night
