If we were having coffee I would be having my new favorite, a vanilla latte. Most people like those super sweet, fancy drinks, like gingerbread or “caramel brûlée”, but not me, I like to keep things simple.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that last week was worse at work. The bickering between me and my co-workers came to a head. The meetings didn’t go well, or they did, but some of the team members didn’t like the outcome, and when people don’t get what they want they act like children. A grown-up can throw a tantrum better than any 2 year old.
If we were having coffee I would tell you that on top of that a whole lot of other things went wrong too. It was one of those weeks where I turned into a total klutz and every time I opened my mouth I embarrassed myself. I couldn’t do anything right! So then I became frustrated and irritable which only made everything worse. Usually I am so calm but last week I was wound up and anxious.
If we were having coffee I would say that despite all that, I still felt like I had a good week. I was more productive than the week before. I still wasn’t as good as I wanted to be, I still procrastinated and I distracted a lot, and I didn’t accomplish everything I wanted. But I did better and that is something. That is everything. I’m still working on a few projects, some of which I have yet to start, but in my defense I haven’t been feeling so good lately.
If we were having coffee I would say that for the first time in many, many years, when I am not feeling well I can make a doctors appointment! I am now covered by Kaiser Permanente health insurance! The only problem is….I know nothing about how to choose a doctor or make an appointment. I’m going to give them a call this week so they can walk me through all of this stuff. I am so excited….and terrified!
If we were having coffee I would tell you I hope you had a good week, if not I hope this one will be better. Enjoy every minute of the rest of your weekend and get in as much more rest as you can. Soon we will all be back at it.
