Today was a bizarre day. The portions of the show I expected to be shorter than I had them planned for went long… and the ones I thought would go long also went long.
You don’t have to be a math genius to figure out that spells trouble.
I had so much work to do today I could hardly stand it. As soon as the show was over it was time to hit the keyboard again.
My new favorite thing at work is Applebees Carside to Go. Since the deli across the street closed we’ve had to find other ways to get a quick meal.
A few weeks ago I called in an order, and 15 minutes later I drove there to pick it up.
This may become my new Friday ritual. I decided it was a great option today for 2 reasons… 1) I was starvin’ marvin and needed a lot of food to tide me over and 2) it was a beautiful day which means I could put the top down on the drive to the restaurant.
Sold! I called in my order for Cheeseburger sliders and they did not disappoint, and neither did the short drive there.
I am always amazed at how the smallest of things can make the biggest impact on my day. Simply getting out of the office for 15 minutes and putting the top down does amazing things for my attitude.
Not to mention the Cheeseburger sliders were delicious! I was full, but I couldn’t stop eating them. I ended up gorging myself. I was fuller than I’ve been in a really long time.
Once back at work I was ready to finish up my show, and help with another show in our department. I was revitalized by the fresh air, sunshine and delicious food.
Looking at this from an outside point of view I have to say if this is what I’m getting excited about I really need to get out more.
But getting out more will have to wait for a while at least. I’ve had an exhausting week and I need to relax and that is exactly what’s on the agenda for tonight.
Next week is going to be really busy too, and I’ll need to be well rested to get through it all. Getting old and being responsible sucks. Ten years ago I would have just said I’ll worry about it when the time comes… not even thinking about the days ahead let alone planning for them.
There has got to be a healthy balance of work, play, rest and home life. I just don’t know how to get it. Either I’m at home way too much in the week and I feel like I’m leading a boring life, or I’m away too much and I feel overwhelmed.
Eh.. thinking about it too much makes me tired so I’m going to relax and do what I want when I want and if it works out that I’m boring so be it.
