7 Quick Takes Friday

Whew! We had Monday off this week, but I also ended up working today, which is *not* my normal... Fridays at work are for real... Even after a 4-day work week.

And I realized just how freeing it was to live each day knowing my responsibilities weren't being saved for after dinner: my tiredest time of day. I've been living under a "PT is coming and I'm tired" cloud for months. And you know what? I'm converted. Sure, it's an early wake-up... but it's done!

Happy Friday!
