Despite the fact that I forgot how to fall asleep last night (I hate when that happens) I still managed to wake up on time (5 a.m.), make some homemade chicken noodle soup, exercise and pack my lunch. Yaya for having everything prepped!
Today was a good great day. My coworkers are so much fun. They make me smile. Birthday resolution check! Four ladies all the same age range in one office space = conversations about alien hairs, spies gone rouge, bbq cow testicles (which Melissa enjoyed this weekend) and Rainbow Sprinkler Conspiracies (shared by Alli aka Little (A)).
Question: Do you and your coworkers get along?
Anyway, on to tonight’s dinner…
