Looking forward to it

Happy Friday! Between the Tuesday-Wednesday foureaster, a 2.5 hour commute home Tuesday and a late train going in Monday, Tuesday, Thursday, and today, I’m ready for the weekend. Commute fuckery wears on you, and multiple days in a week is

The state of the world is also wearing on me - the Stephon Clark execution in Sacramento, a dangerous warhumper installed as the new National Security Adviser, a white terrorist bomber in Austin being described as "a nice kid from a great family" in the news, this clown president tweeting bullshit every single day. I can't keep up.

So today, I won't try to. Here are some things I’m looking forward to, not necessarily this weekend, but in general:

A pedicure, using a Christmas gift card. I haven’t gotten a pedicure in forever.

Freedom from boots and coats. My arms and feet want to be free.

Wearing spring clothes - my wardrobe has much more variety in the spring

Turning the heat off and opening the windows

Easter at the shore with Mom and Rich and Swan and Debbie.

Seeing friends this weekend.

Finishing the book I'm reading tonight - it's a good one. It'll be the fourth I've read since Sunday so you might say I'm on a streak of quickly readable books.

Transitioning my calendar to all digital. I never thought I'd do this, and I still can't get the hang of digital lists, but I am finding it easiest to see all calendar stuff on my phone between my work calendar, personal calendar, MFD's calendar, MFD's campaign calendar, shore calendar. The paper calendar is not cutting it for all this shit anymore.

Finishing my shelf project in the basement. Well, starting AND finishing it since I've only really started it in my mind.

Hopefully seeing a lot of you at MFD's Campaign Fundraiser on Friday, April 13. Please let me know if you're interested in coming and I'll get information to you. 

What are you looking forward to?


  1. Same here on looking way forward to Easter weekend. Baking Strawberry 🍓 cake for you ❣️ Chocolate chip cookie baking and all of our favorites at our favorite beach. And no ham for Easter dinner. Yay. Loving the sunshine 🌞 today. Happiest weekend to all.
    Love. Your. Momma.

  2. Yep... I'm ready for some cute sandals myself about now.
    & opening my windows. Allergies be damned!

  3. I love winter and cool weather, but not at the level you are receiving it lol. Sounds like you have a lot of great things to look forward to. Focus on those! Spring will come! Have a great weekend!

  4. I hope that the fundraiser goes well!! Even though I just got a pedicure a week ago I really want another one. Mostly because of the massage part of it haha.

  5. Cheers to opening the windows. And BRING ON THE FLIP FLOPS.

  6. Yes to all of these! Especially getting rid of the boots and coats! Ughhh. Give me sunshine and warm breezes please!!

  7. So excited for spring and the wardrobe change. Hope you guys have a great weekend!

  8. Ugh I want to do a list of things like this but I’m in jinxing mode.
    As far as a digital calendar last time I tried this I got a reminder every Tuesday at 9:00 for 6 months for a meeting that happened 1x. I still have no idea how I turned it off lol.

  9. I can't even think about spring clothes right now since as I'm writing this it is hailing for the second day in a row. Ugh. Oh well.

    The clown president... don't even get me started. I had to step away from Twitter for a little bit because that clown makes me so goddamn angry.

    Ooh a pedicure sounds like a great idea!

  10. I've heard A Piece of the World is good. I think it was recommended on a podcast...

    A pedicure sounds amazing right now.

  11. Spring! Daffodils! waking up from this clown-president-nightmare! my upcoming new countertops & sinks! Flip flops! open windows! chipmunk wars! (I thrive on the battle)

    BTW, I've been using digital calendars forever - best thing ever!!!!!!!

  12. I'm not a winter hater (I associate the beginning of winter with the holiday season) but then? In March? THAT SHIT OVERSTAYS ITS WELCOME. So right now I am SO looking forward to dropping the heavy winter coat, the flaky/pale/dry skin, the uncomfortable face stinging cold and all that comes with it. GET ME OUTSIDE AND TO MY BEACH STAT.

  13. This is really so loveiy Location. I love winter. Thanks for share.
