Today’s recipe:

  • 1 45-degree morning, to be followed by a 63-degree day
  • More sunshine in one morning than there has been in the past five days
  • 1 cozy National Championship sweatshirt (at WORK, no less)
  • 1 steaming cup of black coffee
  • the knowledge that the alarm clock is off for two days

Stir in a handful of virtual hugs and uplifting e-mails. Blend in the fact that most of the upheavals that are occurring at work will end up working in your favor. Remove one ridiculous governor and add in the upcoming inauguration of a heckuva new one.

Mix gently.
