I chose this photo because 90% of what I now consume now
are Annie's frozen organic burritos and microwaved coffee.
(meaning yesterday, but posting late as have lost all sense of time):
Well, it happened on day 3. I started to miss them and found myself checking the locations of their iphones. They were taking a college tour at Baylor (teenage daughter loved it) and I was getting v. emotional about all of it. Was reaching for kleenex when I received 16 texts in a row from Mini telling me that her brother had LITERALLY SPRAYED HER WITH A HOSE and WHAT ARE YOU GOING TO DO ABOUT IT, MOMMY?
Nothing, sweet girl. Nothing at all. 
I'm in Virginia and you're in Texas and your dad is *right there* and I'm 1,100 miles away drinking iced coffee, eating a frozen burrito in my stretchy pants at 2pm, suddenly feeling really good about my alone time again. Thank you for that refreshing dose of perspective, my angel.

I also had breakfast with my friend and we talked about each other's books that we're working on and it was so helpful and encouraging and it makes me want to tell all of you TO GET OUT THERE AND DO SOMETHING OUT OF YOUR COMFORT ZONE THIS YEAR LIKE WRITE A SHITTY BOOK OR GET A GREEN BELT IN KARATE OR LEARN GERMAN OR TAKE AN EMT CLASS. 
Then after I all got all excited and motivated, I fell asleep on the couch. 
When I woke up, I tried to write some serious and important work that I have procrastinated for weeks but I couldn't because my ADHD brain was like: "You should have more iced coffee and read about the different neuro-biological processes driving attachment and attraction in mammals. That is a good idea. Do that." 
Then I had surf and turf for dinner with my friend Kimberley, dressed in a ridiculous outfit while totally unshowered and gross, but whatever - we had a great time and my steak was DELICIOUS.
Then I evaluated 50 scholarship essays and watched season 2 of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina because my sister told me to.
Overall, being left behind my family is still outstanding. Still would recommend for all peoples. Still 14/10.
