I knew it was too good to be true. After working 16-18 hour days including nights, weekends, and holidays for the past several weeks, I was stunned to suddenly be done (done!) at 3AM last night and woke up today with nothing to do but to enjoy my first free Saturday in as long as I can remember.
It went according to plan for most of the day. I woke up late having not been able to go to sleep until 6AM, my mind still buzzing and unwilling to let go. I did absolutely nothing for a couple of hours…which, in and of itself, was something given my last few weeks.
Then I went to Walgreen’s.
Perhaps you are not understanding the import of what I have just told you. I went to Walgreen’s.
I went outside, I got in my car, I drove somewhere anywhere, I interacted with people non-virtually…I bought much-needed toilet paper. Whomever thinks that living in LA isn’t really glamorous is clearly mistaken.
Of course, this bucolic existence was ripped back into present-day reality with a call from China. sigh. I am determined, however, to keep my dinner reservation.
