I kept hearing that these Philips lights are life changing. I wouldn't go that far, but it's true that I wake up without a blaring alarm every damn morning now. On the other hand, the slowly brightening light wakes the dog up at 5:30. Still, the sunlight effect is lovely!

IMG_0066

Send the dog outside into the chilly morning. He is not pleased.

IMG_0070

We make up with it with playtime. Toys only last a day in his world.

IMG_0071

I don't have any caffeine in the house, so I'm stuck with seltzer. Luckily, Polar Seltzer is mana from the gods. There was an article on Boston.com last year about how obsessive Polar fans are; I feel that.

IMG_0072

Shower time! I have fully embraced the slight kitchy-ness of my cabin, down to the fake wood panelling on the walls, so this new shower curtain makes me smile.

IMG_0078

Face stuff. I am too lazy for makeup but day cream makes me feel a little brighter.

IMG_0074

March sunlight is already taking my breath away; so dramatic and gorgeous.

IMG_0079

I've been struggling a bit, still, with the aftermath of my father's death and with the pure crisis mode I lived in for years before he died; I was a horrible friend in that time. Today's Carolyn Hax made me feel guilty and better all at once. I haven't been brave enough to try to reach out to those amazing friends, yet. But I will get better, and I will.

IMG_0080

Baxter. I JUST vacuumed.

IMG_0082

Oh man, weather. I'm getting whiplash.

IMG_0083

Journal, to-do list, and a quick mental pep talk.

IMG_0084

I made a promise to myself that I wouldn't buy any new games until I finished the ones I own, and apparently that stretches to freemium games on the iPad. I'm about half done with Final Fantasy Record Keeper.

IMG_0085

Oh, look at how bright it's getting. Time to go to work.

IMG_0086

I commute an hour each way daily, so audio books, podcasts and plays are my saviors. I was excited to find a Poirot I hadn't heard before, even if it wasn't read by my One True Poirot (David Suchet). Hugh Fraser's pretty good, though, although it's a bit weird to hear Hastings do Poirot.

IMG_0087

I rarely find time to leave for lunch anymore, so I stop by whole foods for breakfast and lunch. Bit pricey, but tastes good. Plus, they're my local source for my favorite caffeine drink, hi-ball.

IMG_0088

And here we are, at work.

IMG_0100

Quiet before I unlock the doors for the day.

IMG_0101

It's 1pm before I get a chance to make a to-do list. This day is kicking my ass.

IMG_0104

Breakfast, working on Animal Crossing for that same goal (I've decided that when my house is completely expanded and paid off, I'll call it finished). I try not to do work on lunch but I can't help replying to an email or two.

IMG_0107

By the time I look up next, it's nearly closing. I've got my inbox down to 19 emails though, which feels like a success.

IMG_0108

Time to lock the doors and gtfo.

IMG_0109

Got some boxes today! The huge one is a wedge pillow, which I bought because I don't have room for a comfy chair in the house.

IMG_0110

The other box has shoes! And a couple of books. I've been using variations of these shoes for over a year now and adore them.

IMG_0111

Chat with my brother; my little nephew is sick with a terrible bug and has thrown up for only the second time in his life. So traumatic for a little guy.

IMG_0112

Unbox the final bit of stuff, new clothes! I'm super excited to wear the owl skirt this spring. Warmer weather is so close.

IMG_0158

More playtime. This toy did not last any longer than his others, despite my futile hopes.

IMG_0166

Smug.

IMG_0167

I'm disturbed to see my rug staring back up at me. Honestly, dog.

IMG_0173

I ask him to explain the eye and he explains by cuddling.

IMG_0178

The house is half neat, half disorganized. I need to get things in order.

IMG_0180

Better. ish.

IMG_0182

More mana from the heavens.

IMG_0183

Browse the web, play some Mass Effect 2. Shep just looks skeptical and or snarky about 99% of the time and I adore her.

IMG_0184

Realize how late it's getting. To keep me honest in my goals, my friend and I created a joint blog about the games we're playing and the progress we're making on our backlog. I make 15 minute sketches about my week in games and then blather lots; Freddie Prinze Jr.'s stream on Twitch keeps me company. Seriously, can't believe that guy streams, but I love it. Especially when he tells stories in the Iron Bull voice.

And thence to sleep! Thanks for reading!
