“My God, he couldn’t help thinking, how terrible it is to be that age, to have emotions so near the surface that the slightest turbulence causes them to boil over. That, very simply, was what adulthood must be all about — acquiring the skill to bury things more deeply. Out of sight and, whenever possible, out of mind.” ― Richard Russo, Empire Falls

I need an excuse to wear eye makeup like this

Today I slept in, lazed around as I watched the Netherlands beat Brazil in the World Cup, ran a 5k and had my third mile be the fastest one, ate a delicious dinner of steak & corn on the cob and have stayed within my calorie count for the day, and am now watching Drew Storen pitch in the Nats vs. Phillies game that is actually airing on real TV for me as I play fetch with my cat.  

So basically today was a pretty good day & I just wanted to document it because I very rarely mentioned good days on here & mostly just complain about the awful ones. Huzzah!

Dropped my kindle in the tub in the middle of a murder mystery. WORST. NIGHT. OF. MY. LIFE.

First world problems I know I know.

BUT FOR REALZ?!

THE SILKWORM?
If so, that’s terrible. I was late to a 4th of July cookout so I could finish reading Cuckoo’s Calling. WORTH IT.
