Not my most exciting update.
What are the most boring things to talk about? Dreams. Getting sick and all its many ailments. And maybe trying to describe a TikTok or youtube video you saw? I know. Groan. So in the spirit of posterity, I’m just going to put up a really quick update here and keep it short, so I won’t bore you or my future reading self to death.
I was sick last week. My second week on the job! I was so stressed about it because I also have an upcoming pre-planned overseas vacation that was in the works since last year and combined with being out sick, I was worried my new employer might think I am MIA. Getting sick was NOT in my plans. I didn’t want to force myself to go to work and cough all my germs all over everyone either. Such a dilemma. So I stayed home, main-lined emergen-C, slept as much as I could and forced myself to get better.
lt worked! The sun came out. I felt a million times better and I went to work. I did work from home too so it’s not like I was completely MIA but it made me nervous. I’ve been out of corporate land for so long that I’m not up on all the protocols.
That’s it. That’s all I got. Next week: I travel! Yay!
the weekly check-in, a few days late
Monday got away from me and I don’t even remember what I was doing! Let me check. Hmm… nothing notable. I hired a virtual personal trainer, so that’s exciting. I had to quit the old trainer because it was just too expensive and I was totally bored. This new trainer does everything online and there are lots of modules and check-ins so it’s promising. So far all I’m doing is walking, which you know I love. My dad and I are walking every morning together virtually. We put our earbuds in and chat for an hour or so while we walk 2.5 miles. It’s great. We both get exercise and we talk about business and catch up.
Last Saturday my dad walked the 5K with me, except we didn’t do the 5K, we walked the 2 mile fun walk. It’s all pretty much the same but since my dad was worried about leg cramps (he has deep vein thrombosis and has really bad cramps when he overdoes) so we took it easy. I love the pomp and circumstance of a city 5K, everyone is out and happy. They have live music and restaurant row. It’s just so good to be out and about after a two year hiatus.
Speaking of out and about, Bug is all better! Her tastebuds seem to be extra sensitive and she tastes everything hesitantly like a pregnant woman going through morning sickness but she is officially covid-free. She is worried about brain fog but that could just be the family trait of worrying about everything. I hope so.
I sent my fabulous fiftieth birthday invitations out Tuesday so there’s no going back now. Time to hunker down to real planning now. Funny how thinking up the themes and ideas is so much more fun than putting out the money to make things happen smoothly. I did book my client’s margarita truck. I hope they taste good!
Bug and I have exciting plans today so I hope I’m back here soon to report!
