Having hit an unexpected low, I am putting the following plan into motion tomorrow:
Get up early enough to have good light to snap a few photos on my walk/run. I promise to share.
Go to the beach. Stay there, with a thick book (“I Am Charlotte Simmons” by Tom Wolfe) and plenty of bottled water in my bag, and camp under an umbrella or in the ocean, until I have to go home to get ready for work at 3 p.m. Yes, I will remember the sunscreen.
Go to work. Enjoy work, because I usually do.
Enjoy tackling my new responsibilities at work. Try not to panic about tackling these new responsibilities.
Enjoy thinking about this: I am actually busy the next few of my “weekends.”
–I head to Atlanta next Sunday after three doubles next week. (Jali, even if it is just us two girls, I cannot wait to meet you. But I hope others will stick around for brunch.)
–I head to D.C. the following Sunday and Monday, just to hug all the people I love, including Mr. Restaurant Gal.
–My Wonderful Friend comes to South Florida to help this Gal celebrate a birthday the first weekend in October.
–RG Son and RG Daughter head to my beach town the last week in October.
I feel better already.
