A Day Off, to Rest Up for Monday

Jan 11, 2019

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!

    • Kate says:

      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!

    The Office IS a great show! 🙂 Have a great weekend, Abra!

    • Belle says:

      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.

    Ugh, what a cliff-hanger! Can’t wait to hear it. Hope you have a wonderful, relaxing weekend.

    Enjoy the weekend and the downtime. Sounds like you’ve earned it.

WFH Outfit: Denim and Black

Does anyone really know how to dress for a rainy February? It’s not winter. It’s not spring. Sweaters seem heavy. Just a shirt feels like you’ll be cold. It’s a puzzle.

The Range: Trouser Jeans

Yesterday, we chatted about not-see-through tees. Today, I want to talk about jeans. I am so grateful wide leg denim is back in a big way. And if you’re going to the office, you need a trouser style jean to see you through the week (or just casual Friday). Here are some favorites in different […]
