A Day Off, to Rest Up for Monday

When I started in government, I was 22.  Being at work at 8:00am, leaving at 7:00pm, no problem.  But after a couple of years away, this 7:00am to after sundown schedule is too much for my old bones.

Especially when I come home at night and try to grind out some blog posts, while my attention-starved pups climb all over me looking for snuggles.  So last night, I decided to put my fur babies first, and spend the evening letting Kyle try to convince me The Office is a great TV show.

I’ll see you ladies on Monday.  Oh, and there’s a big announcement coming next week, and you do not want to miss it.

xoxo, aB

    I always HATED The Office until I got pregnant and then I thought it was the funniest show. I still think it’s funny, but not like when I was pregnant.

    Have a great weekend and cheers to some high-quality relaxing!

      That is so funny–I hadn’t thought of it this way until your comment but I do think being pregnant has changed my sense of humor! What a weird stage in life this is!

      I have trouble with comedy where we pick on someone and laugh at them, or someone (Michael) acts ridiculous and everyone mocks him. But a lot of the later seasons, there is less of that, so I find those really funny.

        Have you seen Parks and Rec? Similar humor, but less bullying. I also love Schitts Creek.

        VERY unpopular opinion, but I don’t get it. Never have. I don’t think it’s ever made me laugh… and I’ve tried…

      I know I kind of wanted to guess in the comments, but y’all are too mature for that, wink. Fair enough. Have a great weekend and please know we’re looking forward to next week!
