I had a giveaway originally scheduled for today, but I’ve been doing a lot of those lately, so instead I thought I’d share with you a few bonuses and bummers.
Bonus: Getting to work on time today so I can leave at 4 PM in observance of summer hours.
Bummer: Looking at my calendar and seeing I have to work until 5 PM today and tomorrow.
Bonus: Finding a new TV show that I like (hint: it’s 90210 and it’s on Netflix. I’m not apologizing.)
Bummer: Realizing that I can’t watch my TV show any time near bedtime or I won’t get to bed until 2 AM — DRAMA and cliffhangers!
Bonus: Finishing the first of several books I’m reading by David Sedaris this summer.
Bummer: The rest of his books are currently checked out. Fortunately I have audio books!
Bonus: Finding a somewhat easy skirt pattern on sale at Jo Ann’s.
Bummer: Completing it and realizing that it’s too big and that part of the waistband was supposed to be saved to add a closure, but is now an awkward gap above the zipper.
Bonus: One of my best friends just had a baby.
Bummer: She completely quits talking to me.
Bonus: Finally making raw cookie dough in my food processor (read: Mark’s food processor).
Bummer: Burning out the motor in Mark’s food processor.
(related) Bonus: Making some of Averie’s krispie treats and realizing they are not as terribly bad for me as I thought they would be (156 calories per bar if cut into 35 pieces!)
Bummer: Sending all the krispie treats home with my mom to give to my dad and grandpa.
Bonus: Running 5 miles on a lovely afternoon!
Bummer: Realizing these are the slowest 5 miles I’ve run since 2008.
Bonus: Trying a new restaurant.
Bummer: Finding only one item on the menu that I can eat, and having to send it back when I realize it’s covered in gluteny goo (Greek lemon sauce apparently is not like thai lemon sauce!). Apparently Greek is a no go for GF, which saddens me because I love Greek.
Bonus: One of my other best friends reads my blog.
Bummer: She is also very good at editing me.
Had any major bonuses or bummers lately?

Hi there. I'm Calee (pronounced Cali, like California). If that's too hard, just call me Cal. I also respond to Chimes. I'm a recent IA > MN transplant who's (still) getting the hang of her 30s, enjoys good food and drink, and is pretending to be a housewife while tackling a million projects. Here's the unabridged version.
