Well, I’m finally back in the groove of a typical work day. I am extremely sleep deprived today. I’m not sure if it’s stress from all of the changes happening in my life or a reaction to the cortisone shot I had yesterday. Once my eyelids started finally started getting heavy (3AM!) I couldn’t get into a comfortable position for my knee. Belly down it was and I finally drifted off to sleep at some unreasonable hour. I think the only thing that pulled me through this morning were the beams of sunlight streaming into my bedroom through the blinds. My view definitely isn’t anything as gorgeous as what I saw from my hotel room window each morning in Mexico, but there’s something about sunshine that gets me going.
I pulled my sleepy butt out of bed and got ready, but kept forgetting things. Actually, during my drive I realized that I left some necessary items at my apartment that I’m going to need for tomorrow. Errrr!!!! To the mall I will go after work, because I need to head to Long Island tonight and my apartment is in the complete opposite direction. Being sleep deprived with a debit card in hand at the mall might not be the best decision, but a girl’s gotta do what a girl’s gotta do. Ya know? 😉 I will share more about my reasoning for all of that at a later time. I’m trying to be careful what I post because you never know who might be reading.
Anyway, work is going pretty quickly today. I’ve been busy working on some new projects and time seems to fly for me when I’m busy. I actually have to say that this is one of those days where there is just the right amount of work. No thumb twiddling yet no wanting to rip my hair out either. Perfect!
Shortly, I’ll be leaving to do a bank run for the office. I’ve been wearing my ballet flats lately, which should help with the knee. I imagine that years of jobs where I had to stand for hours and wearing high heels played a part in my knee issues lately. I’ve never had the greatest knees, but those factors surely didn’t help. My boyfriend and I also noticed that I tend to point my toes inward as I walk or if I’m just standing around. I keep catching myself do it and am trying to make a conscious effort to keep those toes pointed straight. I’ll keep that in mind as I make my walk down the hill to the bank.
Even with all of the craziness going on in my life I’m in a happy mood. There’s a lot of good going on in my life right now and also in the lives of those who I care about. My sister, Jess, will be getting married within a year and is looking for houses with her fiance. They’ll also be living in Long Island. Yay! I’m so happy to finally be living in the same area as her. It’s been over 10 years now that we’ve been in different states! She’ll be turning 30 next month and this girly right here has her 32nd (GASP) birthday on Thursday. Where does the time go?!?! We’re all getting together this Saturday for a family birthday party for me. I’m looking forward to some of my mother’s wonderful cooking. It’s the best! I may be biased, but no one else’s seems to compare. Next month we’ll do something special for Jess. I’m also looking forward to meeting up with my sisters towards the end of next month for brunch and outlet shopping out east in Long Island. We never get quality alone time together. There will be lots of girl talk, laughs and wedding planning going on. I can’t wait!
Ok, time to make that bank run. If I have some time tonight there will be a post with a teaser from my time in Mexico. Then, over the course of this week and next I’ll do a full day by day recap for you. I can’t wait to share my pictures with you. I still don’t think they could ever do justice to what I saw with my own eyes. Everything was absolutely beautiful. I felt like I was in another world. My boyfriend promised that we will visit again. That’s one thing I’ll absolutely hold him to. 🙂
Hope the rest of your day is a great one!
