It must freaking be Monday.
I forgot how to drink tea for a second, consequently spilling it on my white blouse (that I took an extra 10 minutes this morning to ACTUALLY IRON! Who even irons anymore?!).
Before I rolled my eyes at the "of course I did that" moment, I noticed that the water oxi-pen that I used to clean it had formed a rather lovely shape. I could only interpret this heart-shaped stain as a good, no, GREAT sign. After this divine vision, small though it be, a flood of yaysaying surged through my mind. There are several good things to share.
1. After an amazing Saturday, Joel and I moved our futon out to the fireplace, started a fire, and blared classical music and symphonic movie soundtracks throughout the house. For a solid 3 hours, we stared at the fire and reveled in music. I wondered to myself when the last time I just sat down to really listen to music was. I felt like a teenager again, lounging around in my room. Then, at midnight, we got a hankering for crepes. Breakfast at midnight = festive! It was one of my most memorable and favorite dates I've ever had with my lover.
2. I am leaving on Wednesday to spend some much needed time with Kelly and Brad and the animals. Joel and I are driving down and really looking forward to some leisurely long hours in the car. We will talk, and we will eat. Joel will listen to Carl Sagan and I will sleep. C'est parfait.
3. My weekly weigh-in went so well today. I lost and I feel really great about it. It's amazing what a sober week can do for a girl's waistline!
Cheers to the silver-lining of spilling on your shirt,
