It is one of those days. The days that find me not really wanting to get out of bed but knowing that despite the feeling in my stomach, there is a lunch to be made, breakfast to be served, and a child to get out the door to school. There is a meeting at 9:00 that must be conducted. There is life to be lived whether or not my stomach is interested in living that life today. (My stomach would rather phone it in I think)
“Just ignore it” my daughter advises as we walk to school. Ignoring it sometimes works… and sometimes it doesn’t. I have visions of the blanket tucked in my office for just such days and the unscheduled time that fills the late morning. Blanket, no meeting, and an office with a door that locks – I may find myself pulling a George Castanza.
So much for the shopping I had hoped to do today; the mid work day escape I planned. Just me, the mall, and other local office workers making the most of the mild winter day and a few hours without meetings.
This mild day will instead find me resting with the blanket and hot tea and exchanging the mall for high speed internet.
