Rain rain rain all week and cool weather makes me think I’m living in Ireland instead of Virginia. However, I briefly complained to my coworker earlier this week about wearing a jacket, and he said “DON’T EVEN START!” so that put me in my place. Also, I’ll be regretting that complaint this weekend when it’s back in the 90’s.
