Well, yesterday day was about as bad as I thought it would be. But the date was about as nice as I thought it would be, which is saying something. I was a little flat, a little quiet, but I'd given d.jack good warning, so didn't worry too much about having to be fun and just enjoyed my wine and his hands.*
And someone left me a present in my mailbox yesterday. That was very nice, whoever you are, and you are so far not any of the people I would have expected. The flowers were pretty and also much appreciated.
Today was a hard day too. As it turns out, the day after receiving a layoff notice is less fun that the day you actually receive it, because your small organization starts shifting gears entirely, and it is discombobulating, to say the least. Depending on how fast the government machine grinds, we may or may not get laid off.
If there is an election, the layoff a surety. I find myself in the awkward position of wanting the Conservatives to stay in power. This will hopefully be the last time I ever say that.
Tonight, I'm finding myself a little frayed; feeling thin; a little frustrated, too, like I should be able to handle a week of social activity and some not huge work stress better than this, like I wish I had a stronger constitution.
But meh, we are who we are, right? And right now, what I are is hauling my carcass to bed.
