Today will be a long, long workday for me. Then tomorrow has me doing a demo of a new feature for a VP, plus other meetings and sundry stuff. Friday looks pretty clear so far, so I'm going to try to get in a pedicure so my toes will be sand-worthy.
I still don't have a travel folder put together for PR, but I'll just try to pencil in one activity/site per day and let it go at that. And speaking of PR, Bick is going with us and I'm glad of that. He has asked for some time to get his stuff together. He's talking about going into treatment after the first of the year - new insurance issues, etc. I'll believe it when I see it. Not that I necessarily doubt him, but the bargaining part is pretty normal, although he has never been one to take the easy way out. He has fiercely defended his alcoholism when it would be easier not to, so perhaps this will be a turning point for him. Right now, however, he is in pain, so is liable to say anything. What he decides to do will be whatever he decides to do. I am working on me and my stuff. If at the end of this year it turns out we can regroup, then great, and in the mean time, I'm building a life for myself here at The Closet.
One of the concerns I'd had before moving in with Bick was whether I was capable of living with someone full-time. My alone time dropped down to next-to-nothing. I've always had copious amount of me time, even when married. I do believe it took a bigger toll on me than I'd expected - that plus the two hour commute time each day. That's not to say that I didn't get lonely before Bick, because I did, but like many things, there has got to be a balance in there somewhere.
Went to the gym last night, milled and watched tv for a while. There were about 5 people there at that hour about 8pm. I came home and got ready for bed and then got up at 3am and worked around the apartment rearranging a few things for an hour. Sigh. Got up and made myself a wonderful zuc, red pepper egg white omelet. I'm finally getting on board with the egg-white stuff. Bought a carton of it. So far, so great.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Live and let live.
