Life after vacation...
Well. It's kind of brutal.
In theory I think I'm OK with going to the office.
Then I go home and
after smooching all over the cat
This is almost like a poem.
If I weren't so tired I might consider actually writing this post as a poem.
Diet Coke and coffee and tea are more flavors for the tongue rather than actual keep-Bailey-alert tools right now.
I've been reading on my lunch break -- which I used to do all the time but for several years now have reserved reading for bedtime -- which is nice, but then -- because I'm used to all the bedtime reading -- I realize I'm sleepy. (Pavlovian).
And then (because I read in my car) I put my seat back and close the eyes for a bit.
And then I go back in to the office in search of Diet Coke.
In other news I drank regular Coke for years and years and years and now I drink Diet. Or Cozo (my nickname for Coke Zero).
I'm glad it won't snow here anytime soon.
I'm glad I can walk laps around my office because there's so much sun and warmth here.
And the walking makes me feel awake and alert until I come back inside.
I need to start exercising, and start eating food with vitamins.
Seriously is all this journal dumping masquerading as blog posts bothering any of you?
I will start exercising and eating broccoli and being vigilant about not adding things to my calendar, and hopefully the prose will improve here,
you must understand that we have entered October/November/December in which Bailey always finds herself overbooked and overwhelmed and cranky and tired.
And sometimes almost in tears at the prospect of being at work with friendly coworkers on a Friday.
I mean, Friday. Friendly coworkers. Friday.
No tears should need to happen.
And they haven't, yet.
The other most recent time I (almost) cried was when I was telling my sister-in-law at brunch last weekend about that part in the 1994 version of Miracle on 34th Street when Santa sings 'Jingle Bells' in sign language with a girl who is deaf.
Tears = allowed and totally appropriate.
OK time to stop boring you and go in search of D. Coke or coffee. It's that time.
Well, you know.
