I hit THE WALL Thursday night. For the life of me, I could not go on. I was beyond tired. Cranky. My head hurt. I just wanted to curl up and fall asleep.
Around 7 p.m. I told mom, sadly, I need one more day. It was a bittersweet decision because I would have liked one extra day with my family in Ohio.
I slept in and woke up feeling SO refreshed today, though. We got a lot done! I’m writing in an almost empty apartment.
Our bags are packed. (I’ll go through things one more time before leaving for the year.) Merlin has his cat car carrier and sleepy collar all ready.
I baked. All that extra butter, sugar, and flour couldn’t go to waste. The White Chocolate NY Times recipe, but with all whole-wheat flour!
We went out for dinner and a movie. Margaritas, fish tacos, and First Position at the Roxy.
It was my second time seeing this dance documentary. If it’s playing in your area, GO! It’s amazing.
Here’s a clip:
And some pics from the past two days:
My coworkers gave me an AWESOME box filled with quotes, origami cranes, cards, pastels, books, and a rootstone from a local potter, Erik Rehman.
My rootstone! My boss had a collection on his desk, and I don’t think Erik makes them anymore, so he gave me one of his. So sweet.
Okay, off to bed for an early start to a long 800-mile drive!
