This morning I’m a little shaky. Last night I woke up every 2 hours, then every hour then every half an hour, and so on.
I had a dream that my parents took me to a church service in the mall. During the worship I got fed up and couldn’t listen to it longer so I ventured out to get myself some coffee. I saw a self-serve cafe.
In the cafe there were only pre-made lattes with lots of sugar and donuts, bagels, and pastries. I went around and around in the line several times trying to find something to drink and eat with no sugar/low carb. I failed and cheated on my diet and felt sick afterwards.
I woke up drenched in sweat. I have a sunburn from my hours out in the sun yesterday. Other than walking outside around sunrise often, I don’t think I’ve been out in the sun when it was high and bright for a good solid year or possibly more.
Today I’ve got to do several unpleasant things at work. Typically I don’t take take stressful things from work home with me (because they usually aren’t that stressful) but these things I’ve thought a little bit about over the weekend and I’m not looking forward to going in today.
But it’ll be okay.
I’m also not looking forward to working in the office by myself for a week starting Wednesday. The food pantry person will be around to help, but she’ll be busy and that’s it. My coworker that typically handles half the work is going on vacation.
Tonight we meet with my daughter’s therapist. She’s failing her classes and has tons of unexcused absences, despite watching her login. I don’t know what the problem is, but it’s making me sick. I’m hoping her therapist will have some tips.
It’s just one of those days. Just because I don’t feel right this morning doesn’t mean that the rest of the day is ruined.
I’m going to go to work now and have some coffee and realize that I can get through all of this.
