reading The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks by Rebecca Skloot.
drinking coffee. As always.
eating German pancakes, because they’re so quick and easy to make (just mix flour, egg, and milk) and so delicious with fruit (apples or blueberries) or just with cinnamon-sugar.
watching the news. Mostly. Although I get this knot in my stomach every time I turn on the TV and I see that man. I am trying to stay informed, but also want to disconnect so badly.

Luckily, we haven’t had a power outage yet and only a minor leak.
feeling a bit overwhelmed at work. Either everyone wants everything at once or I am twiddling my thumbs (well, not literally, but you get the picture).
thinking about all the things I want to do this year. Trips I want to take; books I want to read; races I want to run; people I want to see; experiences I want to have. Man, a year is so short, if you think about it in terms of all the things you want to accomplish.
