If ever a day of the week deserved this declaration, today is it.
I work part time at my library job, which means I haven’t worked more than four (non-full) days in a row in, well, over a year. No complaints. Except that this week, due to a coworker being on vacation and another one being sick, I am on day 3 of 5 of my work week and wowza, do I not miss this much.
Except for the fact that, the busier I am, the more productive I seem to be able to make myself. No, I haven’t gotten myself back to the gym just yet (I know I KNOW), but between my jam-packed eight-hour workday, condo building board meeting (where I was approved to Chair the Pet Committee- more on that soon!), and dinner… I am still somehow finding the will to blast out a bunch of e mails I’ve been meaning to send, pour myself a glass of prosecco (my new evening beverage of choice), and get some writing done. I might even cap it all off with some reading. Who knows! The night is young! And I don’t have to be to work tomorrow until 2pm (the joys of librarianship).
That five year plan… we all have a tentative one, right? Well, certain parts of mine are more tentative than others. What’s certainly not tentative? I know that I want to run for office. Do I know which office? Of course not. Do I know where this office (city vs. suburbs) will be? Not that either. But I know I want to make a difference and these past few months have taught me that I have what it takes to speak up and be heard and be an agent of change. Enter an opening on my condo’s board for not only members of a Pet Committee, but the Chair position. Sign me up! I have experience on (and running!) an executive board back from my sorority gal days (y’all are looking at a former Veep, no lie), but I figured I could do with some refreshing of Robert’s Rules and use some “real life” experience, so when the opportunity presented itself… I did not throw away my shot.
Also note, I can never control myself when it comes to making a Hamilton reference. And y’all, I am seeing Hamilton for a second time this Sunday! You read that right: a second time. Me. Because, in one of the luckiest moments of my adult life, I won the Broadway Chicago Hamilton lottery and scored myself and John $10 tickets to a show this past November! That night, emotions were post-election high and the view was extremely obstructed, so while I enjoyed every single second of it (while also sobbing through an entire mini pack of Kleenex and straining my neck), I am so very excited to see it once more. With a more centered view. And Wayne Brady as Aaron Burr.
I’m willing to wait for it. *wink*
I hope your Wednesday has been swell, and that your downward glide into the weekend is quick but not so quick that you lose track of it and go spiraling into a tree.
…that escalated quickly.
Quick! Before I have another random thought!
