I had some actual energy today, so I celebrated by going to Steak-N-Shake for lunch. I was deeply nostalgic for the many nights Richell and multiple friends of ours used to hang out there during high school and college. I also ate like a little piggy. My usual single with cheese, plain, plattered with fries and a cup of chili. There wasn’t a scrap left. The only thing missing was the cherry-flavored Surge I favored from days of old. (Cutting down to a very bare minimum of caffeine intake for baby.)
My original plan was to eat with Ian, but he had a lunch meeting. Maybe Friday. After lunch, I headed over to my work and went to talk to HR. I wanted to give them some notice that I should be able to come back in some capacity or another fairly soon. They were thrilled and assured me that they would work with whatever I have to offer. It’ll be nice feeling like I’m a productive member of society again. I associate a lot of self worth with my work and I’ve missed that in the last month or so.
I had so much pep, I cooked a real dinner instead of the easy things I had been doing. I made spaghetti and a tomato & cucumber salad for Ian. I even roasted some of the tomatoes for the sauce. It was delicious. I am very, very tired now and will likely head off to bed early tonight as my hubby is at hockey class now.
