Awesome/not awesome

Awesome = This whole coming to the office, meeting people, catching up with people, hearing some gossip thing
Not awesome = Realizing how many subtle little issues and interactions I miss since I work from home.

Awesome = I have an Economy Plus seat on my flight home. This means several inches of extra leg room.
Not awesome = It's a middle seat.

Awesome = How much weight I've lost so far.
Not awesome = I seem to be in between sizes at the moment. Everything is either slightly baggy or slightly tight.

Awesome = Going home today and seeing my husband and my dog.
Not awesome = It takes a 3.5-hour flight to get there.

= Not having drunk a single Diet Coke since before my surgery in May.
Not awesome = Having no non-carbonated, calorie-free drink option except water unless I'm at home with my Crystal Light.

Awesome = Seeing my sister several times while I was in DC
Not awesome = Not seeing her again until Christmas (though now that I think about it, that's not so far away, which leads me to...)

Awesome = The holidays are coming up.
Not awesome = Oh god, the preparation. And the calories in the eggnog.

Awesome = It's very nearly the weekend.
Not awesome = There's pretty much nothing that's not awesome about that.


  1. Awesome: Friday afternoon
    Not Awesome: Spending it grading papers.

  2. AWESOME: Friday.
    NOT AWESOME: It's raining.

    I love this post. Have you got access to those little Crystal Light packets that you can mix with a bottle of water? I've used those before and they're actually pretty decent.

    Anyway, safe travels! I have flights longer than 2 hours, I get antsy. Here's hoping your seatmates are a no-show!

  3. I was going to mention the Crystal Light single serve packets, too...Although, I mostly just drink water anyway. :-)

  4. I'm so excited it's Friday. I can't wait to sleep in tomorrow. Oh sleep, how I've missed thee..

  5. I admire that you've been that long without a carbonated drink. Whew.

    Awesome: Fall weather

    Not Awesome: The spiders seem to be EVERYWHERE.

  6. why isn't iced tea a drink option?

  7. I was going to suggest iced tea as well. I order unsweetened ice tea all the time in restaurants. Seems to be pretty available on the West Coast at the very least.

    But maybe you don't like tea? I like mine with lemon and a little splenda or truvia.

  8. Yay for going home to loved ones. :)

  9. I don't know how you do it-- I couldn't go without my Diet Coke.

  10. You should check out these flavored waters I like - called Twist.

  11. I can't believe it's November next week already. You're right: it's officially NOT too early to start fretting about the holidays. Argh.
