It's Friday, Love

{ But I don't want to get out of bed Mama }

I can tell the holidays are right around the corner. I'm already getting overly-reflective, as I'm known to do when special occasions are on the radar. Where was I this time last year? What's happened since? What hasn't happened since? Oh shut up Kelly and have a glass of wine! I sincerely hope that one day I won't come to regret sharing with you the fun (insane) little conversations I have with myself.

On another note, this 5pm darkness thing is kicking my a!#. I'm literally in bed by 9:05pm most days. Maybe it's a good thing. They say humans too should hibernate a bit in the winter. A little hibernating sounds good, but I'm having trouble shutting my brain off to relax even in the moments I'm free to do so. It's sort of like coming down from a summit. It takes a while for your brain and your body to say...oh hey! We don't have to worry about anything for a little while! By the time you've caught up to this notion, relaxation time is over.

As far as the week went, it was a busy, but great week of work as we launched a new piece of federal legislation that I hope will do a lot of good. Haven't gotten back to my regular exercise schedule yet and I can really tell a difference in my energy level. Anyone up for a bike ride this weekend? Definitely need to get on that. And whoever decided that feather pillows were comfortable should be shot! Yes, I'm talking to you Liason Hotel in DC! Your pillows are horrible and I didn't sleep a wink. Thank god for Mac under eye concealer. Oh, and Opus One Red is my favorite new bottle of wine. Have a great weekend everyone!
