It may be possible that I have lived in the south for too long. This morning I practically sprinted across the parking lot to get inside the building where I work. The temperature was in the 40s and in my button-up long-sleeved shirt and knee-length skirt, I was freezing! Tomorrow I will wear a jacket. And maybe a hat and gloves and pants. Except I don’t really have any work pants left – my last remaining pair has a key ring attached to the zipper since the pull broke off and even with that feature, the zipper has developed a fear of heights and I have to safety pin the key ring at the top-most position of the zipper in order to maintain my businesslike, professional appearance. Yup. That’s how it’s rolling around here. But I’ve got a bunch of skirts that I wear so it’s not like being pants-less is an issue.
Anyway! The point was that it was cold! And maybe I would have handled the temperature better if two days ago it hadn’t been in the 80s. I mean, we went from highs in the 80s to highs in the 60s in the course of an afternoon. It was warmer yesterday at 6:00 in the morning than it was at 4:00 in the afternoon. That’s just not right!
So, obviously, the only solution is to make a trip up to the cold northern climes to reacclimatize myself to the temperatures, so yesterday Justin and I got tickets to make that trip. I put our information about that on the forum on Erica’s website so interested parties can see that. I’m looking forward to the trip!
Part of that excitement might be because it has been absolutely insane around here lately. I don’t even have the time to go over how crazy it’s been, but trust me – crazy. And my back is killing me. And my addiction to the Layton franchise is going strong. And I’m starting a new diet in order to lose a little weight before our trip up north. And all of these things I should write about, but I don’t have the time right now because things are just so darn crazy.
But I’ll try to do something soon. Like maybe I’ll actually take a Friday and not work! Maybe . . . .
