I woke up this morning feeling refreshed. I deliberately went to bed early last night in the hopes that I would get a good night of sleep and I was not disappointed. It feels great to be here at the office and not already feel exhausted by 0800.
The weekend was pleasant and I spent most of yesterday outdoors. I went into DC to have brunch with friends and that was followed by just strolling around town and taking in the sights together. Everything was done at a leisurely pace and the conversation was outstanding. In fact, one of the things that we all talked about was the lack of everyone checking their cell phones the entire time. This has always been a pet peeve of mine because I choose to spend time with friends, and not with friends' cell phones. Thankfully that was not an issue yesterday.
Ironically, the worst thing that happened yesterday was that I was so caught up conversation with friends that I completely forgot the name of the place where we had brunch! I consider that a small price to pay for a good time. Eventually I will get around to asking what the name of the place was, but I will still be basking in the friendship that made the day so wonderful.
