If We Were Having Coffee...

Thursday, March 16, 2017

If we were having coffee, I'd be drinking a large soy latte. Extra-large, maybe, if I'm expecting a long day ahead.

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that I'm sort of relieved not to have to be in a coffee shop right now. We were sans wifi for 11 days (!!!), & during that time, I had to spend all day of every workday in a coffee shop so that I could, you know, work. I'm lucky to live next door to an awesome coffee shop with understanding baristas who don't kick me out for squatting, but man, am I glad to be able to work from home this week.

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that wedding planning is coming along nicely. We've found an officiant (a friend of mine who is a rabbi & was going to be invited, anyway), we've inquired about a DJ, I've picked bridesmaids dresses, we've booked the photographer of my dreams, & my mom is hard at work on our centerpieces (thanks, Mom!). The big thing we haven't figured out yet is catering, which is stressing me out kiiiind of a lot.

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that I've been sick on & off for, like, the entirety of 2017. My issue right now is that every time I lie down, I start wheezing terribly - like, so badly that I can't fall asleep because my body is too damn noisy. But nothing else is even wrong! No cough, no stuffiness, nothing - so, of course, I'm afraid I have cancer. Have I gone to the doctor, you ask? Of course not.

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that I'm trying to work my way out of debt. It's not a ton of debt, all things considered, but the credit card portion of it was entirely preventable & thus completely inexcusable (unlike, say, my student loans or my car loan). As much as I'd love to be shopping & traveling right now, all my spare change is going toward reducing this debt &, after that, doing my best to live debt-free.

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that I haven't been super into reading lately, which is weird, given how much reading I've been doing for the last year & a half. What gives?! I just can seem to get into anything. I've read some great books lately, but nothing is, like, calling my name throughout the day & driving me to crawl into bed early with my Kindle.

If we were having coffee, I'd tell you that I'm really looking forward to two upcoming trips: one to D.C. for a work retreat with my coworkers, who I never get to see in person, & another to New Orleans, for my friend Jill's wedding. Mike has never been to New Orleans, so I'm excited to explore with him... & to eat as many beignets as humanly possible, if I'm being honest (wedding dress be damned).

If we were having coffee, what would you update me on?
