Cast of characters:

L: me
J: bf
Maizey: dog
B: coworker
L: B's dog

context: I'm a mid-twenty something attorney, currently doing a fellowship in Lansing, MI. I live with an 11 month old 1/8 husky-7/8 mutt named maizey.

April 16, 2015

12AM-630AM  wake up coughing many times over the course of the night. Maizey joins me in bed during the night. snuggles right up next me.

630AM: alarm goes off. slept too poorly to actually awaken at this time. fumble with alarm several times (of course its the blaring foghorn alarm)

630AM-730AM: interrupted alarm sleep. poor decisions.

730AM: finally up.

730-750AM: check email, wash face, put on serum and moisturizer. get dressed.

750AM:  take maizey outside for a walk. First day in the life photo of the day!

Trees aren't green yet but they're starting to sprout these type of buds.

808AM: return to apartment and prepare maizey's kong -- bones and peanut butter for her to munch on.

She's a very good attentive dog when there's peanut butter out. 

hi mom!
put on moisturizer, check bag to make sure I have everything I need. Decide that the flowers J brought home for me yesterday should probably go in water. Prepare them as so

spring flowers
825AM: leave apt. a bunch of radio stations aren't coming in, and i realize i left t.swift's 1989 in J's car. bummed, but turn on lady antebellum cd instead.

836AM-855AM: pick up coworker, B, and dog, L, drop off dog, L at doggy daycare, get almost to parking lot and realize we left the parking pass at home. pick up pass and then finally get to parking lot and park.

855-900AM: walk into work

900AM-10AM: check email, check in on the maizey on camiocam.

make plan for day. do some case law research to incorporate into a presentation.

Eat the highlight of my morning: this jalapeño cheddar bagel.


maizey sleeps a lot
10AM-11AM: meet with one of my co-workers to work on a complaint we're drafting, return a phone call I missed.

11AM: receive some great timehop induced text messages reminiscing about last year.

11AM-115PM: continue to work on complaint

115PM-215PM: head home to release maizey from the crate and go for a walk. throw some chicken nuggets into the toaster oven to cook while we're walking (living on the edge, i know). put maizey back in the crate. travel back to work.

215PM: arrive back at work and realize I just missed the tornado drill. wooo! but this means the elevators are all full so i trudge up 6 flights of stairs - harder than one might think!

215PM-230PM: eat my chicken nuggets. receive notification that my calligraphy order has been delivered. make a dessert-esque cream cheese and preserves wasa cracker.

wasa and cream cheese and jam 

the besttttt

230-430PM: work pretty diligently, taking a few breaks to look up some makeup/skincare suggestions for my impending trip to sephora this evening.

420PM: send off what i've been working on to my supervisor, type up these notes from the afternoon. upload the maizey screenshots.

500PM-515PM: leave work, walk to car, drive to old town to check out the old town general store in hopes of finding almond butter 

515-545PM: pass preuss pets on the way which has this crazy waterfall-ish contraption outside. 

water and greenery and rocks

old town general store! 
many michigan things
what i leave with
not so surprisingly they dont have almond butter.

545-610PM: make an impulsive decision that I want mediterranean in order to garlic sauce this coughing-fit/cold away. drive home. devour said bowl.

Tabooli. a Lansing only thing I think? Very similar to roti though, which isn't in michigan
chicken shwarma bowl 
610-650PM: play with maizey, walk maizey, clean up apartment a bit, become furious when I realize that my calligraphy supplies have not in fact arrived, and have been sent to the USPS annex where I will have to pick them up tomorrow. annoying.

650-705PM: drive to the mall to use my sephora VIB coupon!

705-710PM: head to williams sonoma to return a dutch oven that was the same size different style of one i already have. bummer, because the one i was returning was on super sale, but i just dont have a use for two of the same size, different style.

710-810PM: sephoraaaaaa, with B.

sephora in all its glory

this is approximately $100 at sephora
810-825PM: travel home.

825PM-935PM: maizey is excited for my return. she is also in love with her new artichoke toy.

omnom artichoke
I make blondies for a farewell party at work tomorrow. they look delicious, but they're in the oven for 15 min before I realize I didn't add the brown sugar. So they're not perfect, but they're still edible. I decide I'll still bring them into work.

said blondies
J stops by on his way home. We talk a little bit, catch up on our days, Maizey is very excited to see him. 

more maizey and artichoke.
935PM-1032PM: work on this post. I'm jumping from phone to computer, since the pictures are all on my phone, but its infinitely easier to organize/type on my computer. Maizey was playing with her antler on the floor, but decides to join me in bed eventually. She must, of course, make the bed to her liking. 
maizey and antler
making the bed
good enough? nope.
round two

finally satisfied
1035PM-1040PM: wash face, turn on humidifier (also in hopes of kicking cold). Maizey has temporarily abandoned the bed for her spot up against the exterior wall.

goodnight world!
