One of the major highways I take into work everyday was shut down this morning. I found out the road was closed half an hour into sitting in bumper to bumper traffic. My assistant called me last night (from her unknown to me home phone hence the reason I didn't pick up) and left me voicemail warning me of the road closure. Yeah - I'm listening to all my messages before I go to bed from here on out.
I was in traffic for 2 hours. I didn't complain. I called my mom (who is 2 hours behind me in time difference) and we caught up. When she had to get off the phone and start her day; I picked up my book. Uh huh. I read. In traffic. One lady smiled at me when she noticed. I averaged about a good 4 pages before moving an inch in traffic.
Did I mention I finished 'Love Walked In'? and...I LOVE IT. Yep - you are so getting one as a gift if you know me. Word. The last chapter and I was in tears. It was speaking right to me so much I had to pause and take a breath every paragraph. I just have to tell you one thing and I'm not spoiling it - but in that last chapter the way Cornelia describes love, I was moved so much I've been re-reading it every night. Preach!
But guess what I started and is so much fun?
Stephanie Klein's Straight Up and Dirty.
HILARIOUS and oh so very TRUE.
I don't even know how to set up describing the book to you guys. But I can tell you this - she is a badass. Word. And I've been sneaking in little reads at every free moment I have: while my work computer starts up each day; when my boss is in meetings; at solo lunches; in traffic (just this morning); and before bed.
It's good times. Go get it.
Back to this...because that road was closed all day long, I left work early. YIPPEE. And come to find out the road was just closed in the right lane...ha ha ha.
I got home and instead of watching Oprah, I ran. Before I ran. I texted Cowboy to see what he was up to.
"Trying to kill time before work. Thinking about going to Target"
A boy killing time at Target? He so has me smitten. HELLO. He then asked what I was up to and I told him I was about to go running.
(backstory: 2 weeks ago right before we hooked up, in one of those conversations, I told him the route I run every morning)
He asked me if I was taking my morning route for an evening run. Yes, I was. Then I ran.
OK - is it just Dallas but why are there so many dead birds on the ground? I'm seeing dead baby birds, fallen eggs from trees, and dead mature adult birds. WTF?
So I'm running and I won't lie to y'all I so thought how cool would it be if Cowboy showed?
How cool was it when he did? Uh-huh! With cold SEI water in tow. (And SEI is so becoming my fave. Watch out, Fiji!
He has to work tonight so it was a quick how do you do walk for us. But still...Cute!
Yeah, I'm smiling and it's good.
