While I was on leave there were hospital appointments, and a few social and family appointments, and my husband would try to keep me entertain with some low key outings.
After spending the afternoon with my niece and nephew yesterday, and the morning with my parents today, I’m exhausted.
I’ve been bitching about someone for weeks and today they’ve behaved far better than all my bitching predicted. Of course.
We’re meeting friends for brunch tomorrow and will take them to the airport after that. Of course my suggestion was that they take the train from their hotel to the station near us and we’d collect them and go to a café.
I've missed to days, not as in lost time due to alien abduction and/or psychosis, just forgot to post on the 5th and yesterday. I'm really out of sync now that I'm back at work. I was very careful to learn to slow down, now I have to learn when to speed up and when to slow down.
A student asks a Zen master what it’s like when we die, the master answers that he doesn’t know. The student is stunned and ask if he’s a Zen master why he doesn’t know, the master answers that he’s not a dead Zen master.
It's hard to get back into the work routine. I've had the same routine for 3 weeks, but now it's changing again for week 4 and 5. The week 5 routine should last for a couple of months and give me the stability to settle into and straighten myself out.
Do you leave their company feeling happy, energised, excited, comforted and generally pleasant? Or do you leave feeling sad, angry, tired, frustrated, anxious and generally glum?
Yay for neuroticism (when narcissism is the alternative). My reaction to the narcissism result is a great example of my neuroticism!
I’m my big job, to keep growing and changing. I’ll never finish that job. There will be challenges, there will be gifts and joy. There will also just be a lot of repetitious boring stuff that is the meat of life. A boring life sounds wonderful these days.
