It's Only Wednesday?

As determined as i've been not to "live for the weekends", i have to say i was pretty disappointed when i got to work today and realized it's only Wednesday. Le sigh. I was a little too snooze happy this morning and didn't have time to eat breakfast so i brought my oatmeal with me, but i have to say, it doesn't taste the same. Sista and i are running to the mall during lunch because we both have appointments at the Apple Genius Bar. I haven't been to the mall in so long, partly because the malls here suck (Northpark might be the only thing i like about Dallas) and partly because avoiding temptation is half the battle. (Of course, going to places like Anthropologie is probably 10x worse.) I'm in the market for a good pair of black pumps for work (not sure how i've gotten by this far without a pair!), but the ones i've been eyeing are around $150. Not bad, but not good either. Do any of you have a great pair of black pumps?

Ugh, on another note (and i realize this is going to make me sound uber bratty), while i'm fortunate enough to have my own office, the location of my office leaves something to be desired. My ex-secretary's desk is RIGHT OUTSIDE of my door, and so everytime he has a conversation with someone, i not only get to hear every word of it, but it basically happens outside my door. This leads to people standing in my doorway, and unless it's someone i particularly like at that moment, i can't stand it. Because inevitably that someone will step into my office and interrupt me, no matter how busy i look. (And believe me, when i'm not in the mood for small talk, i try to look REALLY busy.) Anyway, i think i'm just being crabby and a h8er... that and finding all these amazing blogs lately has reminded me just how boring my profession is and how i'm wasting the best years of my life sitting at a desk, ignoring my creative urges. Le sigh again.

I've got to go before i start rambling and say something i'll inevitably regret. I'll leave you with this sweet picture of my darling Lola taking a little nap on my pillow. She has an affinity for laying directly on top of pillows, no matter how nicely propped up they may be...

I just love reading your blog, especially today's. It is hump day! Did you ever say that? I remember saying it in high school and I find myself repeating it. Anyways, it's definitely the little joys throughout the day that make work interesting. I hope you can find a way to put a little creativity into your day!

now it's thursday! yay!! i like the pic (from domino?) you've added to the top of your blog.

workspace is really important since we spend so much time in it. can you rearrange your furniture?

by the by, i have the same fears about wasting away in my job. there are definitely days where my job feels meaningful but there seem to be more days where i wonder "what am i doing here?"

She's a maltese-poodle mix (aka maltipoo)! She's bigger than the average one - definitely NOT a purse dog. But she's a TOTAL sweetheart. :-) Be on the lookout b/c i have some really cute pics of her that i'll be posting soon!
