Had a pretty good day today. Got off to an early start, and spent the day just dealing and working, getting things done. All in all, it was productive. But man, am I bushed now.
I’ll be going to bed soon. Early. I’ve got a breakfast meeting with a former colleague who I worked with for several years prior to my 2004 TBI. They don’t know about my injury, and they will never know. It will be interesting to talk to them tomorrow and see how things are. It will be good to meet up with someone who knew me “back when” — before I lost it. It will be interesting to see how they have changed. They’ve been working at a pretty prestigious think-tank for the past four year, and they say they need someone like me for a position that’s been open for quite some time. I have my reservations, but I do want to hear what they have to say. I need to be smart about this and not jump into something head-first without really thinking it through a great deal. Lots to think about. On the one hand, I have an awful lot of hours and days and weeks where I absolutely loathe my job. But it’s a known quantity. Familiar refrain in this economy.
So, tomorrow it’s just fact-finding time. And a chance to re-connect with someone who knew me when I was really doing well. Who knows…
Anyway, I have to say it feels really good to be this tired. I had a nice dinner with my spouse tonight — it was hot today, so we made a “picnic” — I cooked up some hamburgers and we broke out the potato salad and chips and just had a nice dinner looking out over the neighbor’s woodlot. Not bad for a day that’s so unseasonably hot, you’re sure the world is really going to end on December 21st. Or is it December 12th? I can’t keep track. Have other things to think about, I guess.
So, now it’s time to wind down. Stretch a bit and and chill out. Maybe watch a little t.v., then go to bed.
Life is pretty good. Yes it is.
