Hello Thursday!

Not to state the obvious or anything, but Tomorrow is February! Can you believe it?  That means today wraps up my Well and Cleanly series.  You guys, I know we were just talking about cleaning, but I had so much fun writing these posts and reading all of your comments.  So thank you for that.  Even though I'm slightly tempted to change my blog name to Well and Cleanly and just blog about cleaning from now on, I'll restrain my self.  But I know I'll come back to the topic now and then because there's so much to say!  In the mean time, click here to see all of the posts from the series, and don't forget to follow the Well and Cleanly Pinterest board which I know I'll keep adding to also.

I thought I'd just give a mini rundown of my week, for the rest of this post since I haven't posted since Monday!  On Tuesday I went to a talk at the Green Space at New York's NPR station, WNYC, and listened to Brooke Gladstone talk to Andy Carvin about tweeting and The Arab Spring.  I went because Alex was live tweeting it for work, but really enjoyed it and felt like I learned a lot about the power of twitter and politics.  It was really interesting.  Afterwards we all had a drink and I got home super late for a Tuesday night (11:00!)

Wednesday I got to leave work early since we didn't have a staff meeting and spent the time reading and commenting on my fellow classmate's essays for my personal essay writing class.  Then I went to class from 7-10.  I think I've decided that writing personal essays is way harder than fiction (although maybe it's just way different).  And while I feel like it's really good that I'm challenging myself, this is tough stuff.  I like the rapport of my class though, and commenting on other people's writing really helps when it comes time for me to look at my own and edit.

And now you're all caught up! In a little bit, I'm meeting my friend Erin for dinner and drinks and we're going to chat and catch up, which I'm excited about, and then tomorrow my friends Shina and Shannon who recently moved to Massachusetts are in town!  They're going to stay the night and I can't wait to cook them dinner and set up the air mattress with clean flannel sheets for them :)

The rest of the weekend will be spent looking forward to Downton!  Um, yeah, I'm barely aware that the super bowl is happening, I'm just not and never will be from a sports family. Thank God. Not that there's anything wrong with that!

What are you guys looking forward to for the rest of the week?


  1. Sounds like a great weekend! I really enjoyed your well and cleanly series. Gave me a burst of inspiration to clean. I haven't yet, but here's hoping I will this weekend. I'm with you about football. In fact, nothing makes me madder than when they cancel my regular scheduled programming for sporting events:)

    1. Thanks so much Kari! So, what will you be watching instead of the Super Bowl tomorrow?

    2. I need to start watching Downton Abbey! Your recaps are great, so I'm going to have to catch up. Last night I did end up watching a few of the commercials, but mainly just repeats of "How I Met Your Mother":) Hope you had a great weekend!
