THINGS I DID BEFORE 9AM

  1. 1.
    Showered/shaved/packed toiletries.
  2. 2.
    Made a dirty chai for me and a latte for the girl.
    She's had a long week - going to an arts high school means late nights in the theater for call. She needed a boost today.
  3. 3.
    Cooked Simone's breakfast and packed her lunch.
    (With a note.)
  4. 4.
    Answered two client emails.
  5. 5.
    Packed the new messenger bag.
    So many pockets. Not used to the strap.
  6. 6.
    Dropped Simone off at school, gave her extra hugs.
    Oh, the compressed conflict of emotions - saying goodbye sucks. Knowing I have a weekend of adventure ahead is awesome.
  7. 7.
    Parked, checked my bag, zipped through security.
    Clear + Pre = magic
  8. 8.
    Texted with Simone about Harry Best.
  9. 9.
    Nearly worked out breakfast with three friends who happen to be at DIA.
  10. 10.
    Sat down at Root Down and ordered a griddle cheese sandwich with an over-easy egg.
    Glad you loved it here, @gabimoskowitz and @Abby!
  11. 11.
    Wrote/published a list.
    Rock.
  12. 12.
    Got a shoe shine.
    My favorite manly travel indulgence.
