Thumbs Up for Thursdays! (August 22)


Seriously, you guys, there is only one more Thursday before September is upon us. Shit, right? We’ll soon be packing away the summer things, but not before enjoy the last few days and weeks of summer. This week was refreshingly quiet, filled with a couple of great surprises and an astonishing amount of caffeine. As always, there was lots to be done and little of it was finished. Luckily for everyone, tomorrow is Friday and the weekend is within our reach.

I’m looking forward to being even less productive in the upcoming days, but in the meantime I’ll be appreciative of the things that deserved a Thumbs Up this week!

1. My parents hosted F for the week, so I’ve been a free agent all week – and will be until early next week! I’ve been missing him all week, but I have to admit that I’ve been enjoying grown up TV and getting lots of work done. That said, I’m really looking forward to catching up on snuggles!

2. I had a fun night out for the first time in a long time. It was well deserved, I really needed it, and that’s all I’m saying. 🙂

3. My almost-85-year-old Nanny spent the night with me last night, on a very rare trip away from home for her. I grew up right next door to this amazing lady, and she is a focal point in most (if not all) of my childhood memories. Being 5 hours away, I don’t get to spend as much quality time with any of my family members as I would like, but it was a treat to have her stay with me and see my place. Extra awesome was our trip to Swiss Chalet for soup, cheesecake and a spot o’ tea followed by The Beverly Hillbillies before bed.

4. I had two interviews for an amazing opportunity this week, which has rekindled my confidence in my own abilities. After months of sending out resumes and not hearing a peep from any employer, two interviews in as many days was a nice reaffirmation that I have a lot to offer. That said, I was sad to receive a resume for my current position which means my days in my current chair may be numbered.

5. Last, but definitely not least, I had “coffee” with a wonderful friend today. She’s an inspiration and like a big sister to me. And I owe her a big thank-you and a kick in the arse for getting me addicted to the Matcha green tea chiller! I’m on my way to get another right. this. minute.

Have a great day! What would you give a Thumbs Up to this week?
