Working on the balance

Today, I did two things I haven't done in a longtime. I left work at 5 p.m. I can't remember the last time I left work at 5 p.m. It was so weird. My fellow reporters were stunned but happy.

The other thing was to have a sat down and eat lunch on a plate. A lunch not eaten on the run or in my car. It felt good. D and I had a chance to dish about work and life.

I am not 100 percent yet but I'm getting there. My mom had her chemo today. I feel bad that I will not be able to be there this weekend but I am in no shape to be around her. I will be so glad when I get well. Thank God, I am in better physically condition now that two years ago. I would be in a hospital right now.

So the evening has spend putting up laundry from three weeks ago and reading magazines. Relaxation is hard. I truly have forgotten what it was like. Monday is my day off and I am going to this cool bird sanctuary with D. She is doing a story for a special section and I get to tag along. It should be fun and relaxing. It will be hot but fun. It is a way to work on the balance. I'll take my digital camcorder and record some stuff.

  1. I'm glad you left work on time (not early, but ON TIME, trust me) and had a relaxed lunch. I'm pretty adamant about getting home from work at a reasonable hour and taking time to enjoy meals. My ongoing sanity depends on it ;)
