First thing's first...TGIF mofos! Five photos from this week. I cheated because three of these have already appeared on Instagramnation. Too bad, so sad. Enjoy:
1. Commuted in boots all week not because of precipitation, but because of cold feet.
2. My happy place: the library.
3. Leaving work on Monday - sky over City Hall.
4. View from the 17th floor.
5. Editing means feet up on the desk, lounging.
A counting game. A MATH GAME. Listen, math makes me crazy. I have a degree in english lit - Sweet Brown ain't got no time for math. Those of you who know me are probably thinking how is THIS math deficient person going to play a MATH game? By using a calculator, DUH. Haters. Step two of my plan was to have my BFF Laura the former mathlete check my work, but she has the flu. I thought it would be wrong to rouse her at this early hour.
Every time something good happened this week, I wrote it down with a +1. When something annoying or assy happened, I subtracted 1. It was a good way to accentuate the positive, big or small, and move on quickly from the negative. I began on Sunday.

That comes out to 6. I think. Someone check my math. ANYWAY, +6, not bad. I hope you had more plus than minus things this week.
One more thing: I'm participating in a group giveaway over at Raising Steppe Sisters, I'm ponying up a $10 Target gift card to add to the pile of prizes because hello who doesn't like Target? Go check it out and enter to win a lot of stuff!
That's it. I'm looking forward to not leaving my house this weekend. Hibernation in full effect.
Peace in the east -
