Saturday Small Talk: You Talk Trailers, Shahid Kapoor, and Whatever While I Run Errands

Happy Saturday! I gotta do a screenfree day. Not in some sort of general mental health way, but in a “my eyes feel like they are going to explode and I gotta give them a break” way. It’s not blogging, it’s this work week, I had to go nonstop all day every day, so I didn’t even get my usual little 5 minute breaks to walk around the room. Anyway, either I do something else today or my eyes are gonna fall out.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Show Off Albie Dog’s Halloween Costume to a Series of Friends

Happy Saturday! I have such a busy day planned! I “casually” reached out to a bunch of friends who all leave near each other suggesting a walk, but secretly just wanting them to see Albie Dog in his Halloween costume and tell me that my dog is the best dog. Albie doesn’t know it, but he’s going to spend most of the morning looking like a little flower.

Saturday Small Talk: Chat Away While I Get An Elliptical Delivered!

Happy Saturday! I feel like such a cliche, because everyone is doing this, but I bought myself a home gym equipment thing. Laying around with my foot up for a month really made me want to be more active, and we are heading into winter in Chicago when being active outside will be harder and harder. So I took the plunge and bought myself an elliptical, which is supposed to be delivered at some point in a 4 hour window, and I am going to force the nice delivery man to carry it up 3 flights of stairs for me.
