Today I have my follow up appointment with my doctor. It’s at 7am. I’ve been awake since 4:41 (Earlier really). It’s 5:16 now. I just can’t lie in bed awake anymore. Did I try hard enough to meditate and focus on my breathing and the mundane to fall asleep again. Hard enough to give up. 🤷♀️
I’m up now anyhow and now that things are rolling, there’s no stopping the train. It’s gonna be full speed before long.
I figure my appointment will be over by 7:30 and I’ll be headed back home.
8AM As soon as I get home I’ll have to leave again to take new tires we got for the car to the shop it’s at for maintenance.
9AM I’ll be home again. I’ll need to do the rest of my house chores then. How much of that can there be? The answer to that is enough. Dishes, pool maintenance, paperwork, calling the insurance company. All the adulting that comes with having a house and cars.
10AM. Time for work. QA testing and the daily team meeting at 10:30.
11AM. MFA grad student lecture on creating characters with quiet courage.
12Noon. MFA student readings.
1PM. Back to work. More QA testing and an API spec meeting and a HIPAA compliance meeting and my one on one with my project manager. All that will go until about 5.
5:15PM. MFA grad student reading.
5:45PM. Date night begins! Something we’ve both been looking forward to all week. It holds the promise of tacos and time together, just the two of us!
That will carry me into the evening and all the way to bedtime. Like I said, a stop train.
It’s 6AM now. Time to get ready to go.
