Something just didn’t feel right today.
I would have preferred to stay under the covers, at 5am and not face the bitterly cold morning.
Only a few blocks from home, a fawn had been hit by a car. I felt sad.
Pat was quiet. I didn’t even need to tell her to shut up. She is worried about her sister’s health.
Beaver was crying. Her beloved cat is dying.
Rachel left in tears, before 8am. I gave her a hug and told her I love her.
Cheryl is trying to be brave, while her husband is undergoing chemotherapy.
I went off my diet and ordered 2 chili dogs. Comfort food seemed the thing to do.
Reached out for help on my job, which I rarely do, and felt guilty that I had to escalate problems. Not my style.
Felt a burning need for exercise, so I moved files out to the warehouse. A mindless job, but one that gets me up and moving.
The roofers never showed up today. I didn’t even bother to call them. I just didn’t want more bad news.
Heard the weather report: More snow and below zero temps on the way. Oh whoopee.
Opened the last email of the day, A humdinger. Lots of work to be done in an unreasonable time frame.
But you know what? That email was just what I needed. Tomorrow I will go to work and figure out how to do it.
There is something about an unreasonable request that gets my blood stirring, and my mind whirring.
I will find a way.
Actually, I am looking forward to it.
I think it might even be better than comfort food.
