Before the creature from outer space derailed my thought process yesterday, I planned to write about how wonderfully ordinary things were…just as they should be.
Adam was thrilled to return to school. His teachers and the director were so glad to see him! Not a day goes by where I don’t count my blessings for that wonderful place. I’m going to ask them if he can come for some Fridays to make up the week and a half he missed. Considering that opportunity was already given to me I don’t think it will be an issue.
Work got busy for a while so it was nice to be on my toes, yet I’m never stressed at this job. If there is a deadline or something that happens to come up it’s nice to know that people rely on me to be productive and getting it done ASAP. Remember when I blogged awhile back about never again working at a job I didn’t enjoy? I meant every word of that. It’s infinitely easier to accomplish things when you like your company, its mission, and your coworkers. Helping them and making their lives easier is my pleasure.
For lunch I ventured over to Cider Creek Bakery, whose delicious smell never escapes me. I’ve never been much of a sweets person– and sure enough I did not try any baked goods– so I had half of a sandwich. Screwing up a sandwich is quite difficult so I wasn’t expecting to be bowled over by meat, bread, and condiments but it was incredible. Everything tasted so fresh and homemade. I’d recommend it to anyone. I can only imagine how phenomenal their pies and pastries.
I picked up Adam from school and we went to a local pizza place that has a 2 for 1 pasta night every Wednesday. We had a nice meal and he got to ‘play’ [he doesn’t realize I haven’t put money in them!] in the video arcade. Overall it was a glorious day and a nice contrast to the turmoil of recent events.
THAT BUG IS STILL OUTSIDE….DEAD AND IN FULL RIGOR MORTIS.
With infinite love, gratitude, and respect,
