ESTABLISHED HABITS OF DAILY LIFE 👯
- •Very stereotyped shower order of operationsWet hair, shampoo, loofah body while rinsing shampoo out, +/- leg shaving while hair gets less wet, conditioner, face wash while conditioner sits, wash face off, rinse hair. Wrap hair in a towel, body in another towel. Put on deodorant. Dry body with towel, hang it up. Then hang up hair towel on top hook.
- •Personal parking strategyAlways drive up to the fourth floor of the parking garage, preferentially on East side, very preferentially in the second row, and 100% ideally in the last 6 spots on the left, Sally's Favorite Spots™.
- •Looking into the alleyway next to my apartment every single time I walk or drive by, like a dog who once saw a catJust to make sure my homeless prowler friend is not sleeping there.
- •Phone call to my mom on my drive home from workKeeps me in line with calling enough, and is a nice outlet on a tough/great day. I do this every day to every other day.
- •Fizzy water before bedNew bottle made as needed to place on the nightstand. (@lilydiamond once told me that is the chicest, most Blair Waldorf thing she's ever heard and I will take that compliment and trot it out in every occasion)
- •Sneaky FitBit step accumulatorIf I need more steps for the day, I'll call a friend I know I can talk to for hours, then walk in circles in my living room or on my deck while we talk. Boom. Miles.
- •Sunday AM: early wake up for Farmers Market, with carefully designed plan of attackWalk a mile to the FM. Enter North entrance, go to the small side market on the right for peaches/apples, then to the main market. Go right, first buying greens, then iced coffee from the less popular stand. Then round the loop to buy fancy mushroom medley for a million monies, then heirloom tomatoes if available. Finish out with the pickle guys for a big container of half sours, +/- old bay pickles, +/- wasabi pickles. Walk home.
- •The 1-2-3 face first plant into bedPretty much daily, when I get home, I take off the majority of my clothing and plant face first into bed, then prop myself up on my elbows to dick around on my phone for a while. It's...what I'm doing right now.
