Does this count? I opened the mail. If that counts as working, then I broke my promise and worked today.
Oh, and I also filed away the one piece of mail that wasnít immediately recyclable junk. It was a notice from a county agency that a family had reconciled and I didnít need to deduct child support from an employeeís check any more. The trouble with that was that this guy worked for us for two weeks early in the summer and I didnít get the support order until after he was gone. But itís good to know heís home with his family. Totally heartwarming.
So I guess I did work, for about 45 seconds. Plus twenty minutes of walking, to the post office and back, but that was more for exercise than to fulfill any obligations. It was in the hot afternoon sun, too, but I still wouldnít call it working.
Other than that, this was a Saturday for restoring a little equilibrium to my life. I did basically nothing (and liked it!). I canít say that Iím caught up on sleep, but I do feel better. Whatever it was that came over me yesterday was gone today. Itís just barely possible that the stress and lack of sleep had something to do with the wave of dizziness and the flushed feeling. Iím willing to admit that, now that itís over.
