Got to train with our new operations person today. She is very kind and I think will be a great addition to the team. My manager Eli was hardly in the office again so it felt nice to not be so alone. My only grievance (and it is not really that) is she right clicks to copy, cut, and paste instead of using the keyboard shortcuts. I made sure to emphasize that her methods are hers, and to find whatever works best for her. She’s very new, too, so I shouldn’t expect her to have a perfect flow yet.
Beyond that Marie and I put off recording for another night. It feels like there’s a stye developing in my left eye, so I’m not taking any chances. I’m not too sure why I keep getting them. The last few nights I’ve woken up in a sweat because it just feels so warm in our apartment. Made the decision to ice us out at night so that way when we cuddle we also don’t start to melt into our sheets, leaving bacteria that threatens to infect one of the ducts in my eyelid.
Amelia and I had a good evening together. Very simple. We’ve gotten into a very good routine where we’ll come back from work/school, eat, have some TV time, get ready for bed, and then relax a bit before the big snooze comes on. I’ve been enjoying it a lot, yet in the end I think my mood shifts have come from a presence I force upon myself.
In other words: I am reminding myself every step of the way to take it slow, take it in, and take it fun. If I push myself to hit self-made deadlines that do nothing but put a crunch on me then I start to feel the pressure. Lately I’ve been remembering to breathe through the anger and give myself the time to feel. Plus getting a full-night’s rest doesn’t hurt either!
Love you mom, dad, sis, Amelia, Marie, kitty
