The last few weeks (months, but whatever) have been particularly difficult. Each day I've just been getting through. Last week, after I'd starting drinking too much caffeinated tea and hadn't been sleeping well at all, my heart started doing this really fun hiccupping thing. I cut the caffeine, but not the work. My heart settled back down and I made it through yesterday. And now a wee break.
And today, I actually took a break. Ran some errands with the family today, went out to lunch (planned), spent time with Pic and adorable bunnies, walked. C, home (wonderfully) unexpectedly for a day and a half, asked Nana if she'd hang out with Pic this evening so he and I could go on a date. So we had lovely grown-up dinner out (unplanned). And then...we went for a walk. I also finished my book, Better Than Before, and listened to Wait Wait...Don't Tell Me!
And I seriously only thought about work for a few minutes today (inluding this moment).
It's been loverly.
I'm about to finish up some laundry and then tumble into bed to listen to podcasts and sleep without feeling guilty about sleeping.
