Yesterday From A to Z

Added Peppermint Mocha Creamer to my coffee at 7 AM.

Bemused by how long it takes Chandler to go #2 in the morning. My unfortunate job this week since Jay is out of town (AM dog potty walks are his jurisdiction. I say "unfortunate" not because I care about picking up his business but more so because of balancing that against getting ready - tie goes to the guy who is ready to leave for the office two minutes after waking up. As an aside, you know what can go eff itself? Sitcoms where the stars are eating a luxurious breakfast of toast and orange juice with a side of pithy, witty banter at a beautiful kitchen table before work. Get the eff outta here).

Called an Uber at 8:30 AM as my heavier workload meant the bus was plan mf'ing B.

Dashed through the lobby to make the elevator. Easy to do since I wear my flats in and switch to heels at my desk. Run your little heart out Caitlin, run.

Enjoyed a homemade yogurt, granola, fruit cup at my desk at 9:30 AM. 

Filled-out an Oscar Ballot for our office's competition. PS - Go Kubo!

Gazed out the window as the weather changed from sun to clouds to rain (repeat, repeat, repeat) and wondered when my beloved perma sunny SF would come back.

Headed to the Ferry Building for a quick 10-minute walk. I love how no matter how freezing it is when I leave the office, I'm sweating a couple blocks later and then desperately combing my hair in the elevator on the way back up.

Indulged myself in my BIL's rockin' Spotify mix as I worked. Then texted him about how good it was. He was quite excited about my praise.

Jaunted to the street corner to grab some green juice for a pick me up. Avoided eye contact with the glorious taco cart en route.

Kept trying to put my key card into my skirt pockets (which don't exist).

Laughed at Instagram memes my brother kept tagging me to look at. Chided him for never responding to my text messages yet somehow he's always available on apps.

Met work deadlines and mapped out future ones.
Noshed on the turkey/avocado/cilantro/bell pepper brown rice bowl I made and brought for lunch.

Optioned to eat lunch at my desk so I could stay on top of my email and look over a proposal.

Prepped for two large meetings. Attended two large meetings.

Quipped over email.

Ran to the bus stop - I have a fear of getting there just as the bus is pulling away which happens all the time. And I hate it so. And the fear of it happening again (it does and will again) at least helps me get my steps in.

Sat next to the window and texted with Jay as he flew back from Orlando. He was tired and his texts were wonderfully weird.

Took Chandler on a long walk by the bay.

Uploaded a picture on Instagram from said walk (here). Thought about how I'm always an army of darkness. And also how my hair has gotten really long.

Ventured into town from the water where Chandler and I did some shopping. And if you must know, I got a cardigan and a candle from Urban Outfitters and Chandler laid claim to 300 trees. We both won.

Watched the first twenty minutes of "Brooklyn" on my laptop (a movie you know I love) from the kitchen while I packed lunches for the next day, washed dishes (#nodishwasher) and heated up dinner on the stove.

Xcitedly played tug of war with Chandler intermittently as I moved between rooms doing ish.

Yawned and kissed Jay when he arrived home from the airport late at night after being gone for a week.

Hahaha "xcitedly" was super clever. Also, I've never seen this done! I've seen days/weekends by number, but not this!

I adore this layout, may have to borrow in the future. And if I do can pretty confidently say I might have to steal Xcitedly because...X.

You go girl avoiding eye contact with the taco cart. I do the same during lunch walks all the time.

This is such a fun post! It really is amazing how long it takes pups to go to the bathroom in the morning, which is why I'm glad that Chris is responsible for that as well!

That was a great way to post about your day. And yep, with you, pfffffffft to any of those sitcoms, or any show in general, full of crap.
