I woke up around 4:00am from a 'nap' and realized I still had two pretty ambitious tasks I needed to accomplish for work. It took me around 90 mins to write the little script for Sunday's clown graduation and compile the April events update for our board. I forwarded the former to those involved and the latter to Jeff, for his approval and addition.
By then it was rounding morning, so I closed up the house, brushed my teeth and contemplated going to bed (instead of couch). Then I started surfing LJ (which is alternating between maddeningly slow and average nonresponsive).
Now it's just minutes before sunrise, so why not wait and watch it happen? This is something I rarely do, and I seem to be doing it. I also seem to be fighting a little asthma attach or something . . . not sure why.
The past two days have been intense and somewhat uncharacteristic, laced with a certain amount of anger toward a co-worker whose Debbie Downer attitude went from vaguely annoying to outright infuriating. When I found out she had privately emailed two people on my team about something I oversee, I hit the ceiling and fired off a "strongly worded" email. I guess it nearly crumbled her, which makes me feel bad but no less adamant. The word of the day today is obdurate
, and it might just fit the way I feel. (Not a pretty sight, by the way.)
Anyway, I'm putting this aside and watching the sun rise. Then I'm probably going to sleep for a while before deciding where to ride in what's supposed to be today's sunshine. We (I) could use a little of that. Sunshine, that is. And sleep. If I have to choose between the two, I'll probably go with the former.
