I’m going in

Today is my first day back in the office since early March 2020. I already made a couple of mistakes. I didn’t find my refillable bus pass. Also, I forgot my mask, had to go back to the car to get it and missed my bus. There will be another one in a few minutes. I hope.

Also, about work clothes. Stuff is a bit snug. So I wore a black pleated skirt that I’ve had hanging in my closet for a year. Some people should not wear pleats. That’s all I’ll say on that.

My morning latte might be detoured to Starbucks instead of my customary Crazy Mocha. All of the Crazy Mocha shops are “temporarily closed” downtown. Whatever that means. I got a little panicked about that and felt like calling the company. “What does that mean, temporarily closed? You mean like until 7am? When will you open back up? How many weeks? I can’t wait that long.”

It’s going to be rough this morning. Very rough.

How is your morning commute?

Let’s get the blood pumping from bus stop to office with The Walker:

I’M IN!

Starbucks is closed too! Is there nowhere in downtown Pittsburgh where a human being can get a medium skim latte?? I am being forced to drink alternative coffee substance. It’s like a dystopian nightmare.

  1. i hope the rest of it goes well!. Sitting in an office will not be easy until you get acclimated. Hopefully it will get easier by tomorrow!

  2. This room is freezing. 🥶

  3. Also, I forgot how much water I drink all day. I haven’t seen my desk for over a year. Filled the water flask. Once. I think it’s bigger than the one I have at home.
    Lunch was pretty good. I brought it from home. Grilled chicken with creamy basil sauce over vegetable orzo. Finished it up with an apple.
    I took 4 flights of stairs to the fifth floor to the cafeteria. Yep. I am definitely out of shape. Gotta do something about that.

  4. I never acquired a taste for coffee. Iced tea, OTOH…
