Keeping (My) Cool
The AC at Reata South went out yesterday afternoon. I'm opting to replace the compressor rather than the whole system at this time. It will be replaced this afternoon/evening. I'm heading out there soon with a pile o'money. I still have trouble dealing with situations like this. As a result of living pretty much on the edge since childhood, I used to go into a full-blown panic when something like this would go wrong. It still takes me a while to talk myself down from the ledge and be able to make rational decisions, but I'm getting better.
We went to brunch for Sandy's birthday yesterday and had a lovely time. Her birthday isn't until Tuesday but she has other plans for the actual day. She's coming over for dinner on Wednesday to wish us bon voyage.
I took myself to the gym yesterday afternoon as I found myself wanting to snack, snack, snack, while Bick was taking a nap. Being secretive with food is an old behavior for me that I don't want to resurface, so I just changed clothes, threw a book in my bag and headed off to the gym. I read and rode the recumbent bike for a while. Packed my appropriate food today and went to the gym at lunch.
I've got a million things to do between now and Thursday. Our flight leaves at like 6:30 am. Why do I always think early flights are a good idea?
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Stay cool.
