Fast yet slow
dress - Forever 21, tee - Gap, tights - Joe Fresh, boots - Frye
Do you ever have one of those days when you feel like you're rushing around, yet look at the time and realize that you have actually accomplished very little.
This is me today.
I even tried to hasten things by throwing together an outfit that requires very little thought from me. Sweater dress, tights, boots... done! Then I realized how very cold it was outside, and put on a long-sleeve tee and full slip underneath and for warmth. Then I got Maya dressed, fed (breakfast) and prepared to pack my bag (work stuff) and her baby (toddler stuff) so we could go to Nana's. (My MIL babysits while I work "from home").
In the end, it took us over an hour to leave the house. I did take a few minutes to make some coffee to drink in the car because I cannot start my day without a caffeinated beverage (yea, see my domain name). But still - doesn't it feel like it should take less time? So frustrating.
In other news, Maya spotted her first animal in the clouds on the ride over. It was a piggie. Just one, no other animals or shapes in the sky according to her. It was very windy and the clouds were moving quickly against the sky. Or as Maya explained to me "All the clouds want to go home to their cloud house. It's over there!" And she pointed to a cluster in the sky.
