Keeping Things In PerspectiveIs this Friday night better than last Friday? Given that it's almost midnight and I'm still sitting in my office, I would say NO - but, given that LAST Friday I spent the night in the midst of a horrendous case of food poisoning, I think that this Friday is, in fact, better.
Granted, it would be best if I were home, in bed, like a normal person. SIGH. Add into the mix the fact that I have a friend in town this weekend, and it becomes quite the "everything at once" moment. At least I am spending most of my time here at work waiting for other people to do things, so I am free to read, knit, and otherwise occupy myself as best as I can.
I will say, however, that I am extremely proud of the way that I am handling this whole situation. A few months ago, I would have been a stressed-out nutcase by now - desperate to go home. I think my efforts in attitude adjustment have really paid off - I am here tonight whether I am a stress-case, or whether I am keeping a cheerful note in my voice. I am not by any means HAPPY to be here, and this is just another thing to add to the list I keep in my head of reasons why "no matter the money, this is not the job for me." But it's not the end of the world, and I have a massage scheduled for tomorrow to help me recover from this whole day. After all, in 12 minutes, it'll be Saturday.
Can I go home now?
