Before the work trip
It's Sunday so I feel as if I should post something.
I don't actually have a ton of things to say, but since I am leaving tomorrow for a work trip that will eventually turn into a family reunion I am determined to make the most of my Sunday by doing all the things I enjoy the most. Thus today has consisted of making brunch/lunch with Levent (oh my word. He makes the best crispy hash browns in this world) and drinking iced coffee while blogging. (It also consisted of packing and cleaning but those things are not on the fun side of life). And tonight, we are going to watch the World Cup match (US vs Portugal) with some friends and eat all the pizza. I can't wait.
So this is the last normal post before the posts that will be filled with instagrams of various places. (Ah. I am tired just thinking about it. I really wish I could just stay home). Oh well. I don't have to think about that right now. (Well not too hard anyway. I need to keep thinking about what I packed because ever since living in Kansas, I tend to assume that every place I go is going to be extremely hot (to the point of not cooling off in the evenings), dry and windy. Then I go someplace, realize that's not always true, and end up not wearing a ton of what I brought along).
I guess it is fine that I have this work trip coming up. After all, this past week in the office has been painfully slow. But it was the perfect week to discover the kittens that live outside the office. I have finally befriended this little guy, named him Henry, and created a little monster by bringing him into my office one afternoon. Now that he knows what it is like inside, he cries to get it in (or at least he did on Thursday).
So here's to you, week before the work trip week. It's been nice.
