Y’all, I woke up at 4:45 AM from another bad dream only to find Mr. Kates, coincidentally, already laying there awake.* We made the choice to both get up and start our days extra early. Am I really going to go into the office at 6 AM... on my second to last day of work at this job??!?!?!??!!!!?? (Trying to impress them is so unlike me at this point. My wardrobe has become an escalating parade of more and more obvious denim the past week.)

Anyways, what’s shaking in your world today? Talk about anything you like.

*I wonder where all these stress dreams are coming from. Couldn’t possibly be the impending job change, ongoing apartment hunt and fear that come April 1 we’ll be stuck in an apartment we can no longer afford, or the fact that I’m picking up and going to own a car as of today for the first time in 10 years. Definitely no combination of those OR the out-of-control feeling state of my country could cause such things.
