Things to look forward to

Tomorrow, I will be going to work. It’s the holiday season and I own a gift store. I miss the frenzy of wrapping 22 things in 8 minutes while also helping a customer find the perfect gift and answering emails about holiday delivery. Of course, I will pace myself. I am not going in early, I will leave promptly at 2 pm and I plan on sitting as much as possible.

You know which part I am most looking forward to?


I have been eating lunch alone, 5 days a week, for almost 10 months. I hate it. Except for a few lunch dates here and there, that’s probably around 200 lunches alone.

So I’m super excited to eat my lunch at the counter with my side-kick D., shoving bites in between wrappings and restocking.

I’m also looking forward to saying hi to the parking lot guys. Maybe popping in to *my* Starbucks for my morning wet-capp. I promise to come right home after work and rest. Because tomorrow night I’m also going to my friend S’s annual cookie-exchange.

Looking forward to all of it.

    hooray for a glimpse at regaining some measure of your ordinary, every-day life back. It’s there, waiting for you, and you get to get it back!
