June 5, 2012
It's cool and cloudy this morning and while the sky grows light, there is no sign of the sun. Still, the birds are chirping in the trees as the Potomac Highlands slowly wake. Of course, I haven't been to bed yet as I am working the first night of a seven day stretch. It's also my second night alone working this shift, so that is a bit different. It's been too busy for me to get sucked into my head and become maudlin as I am wont to do. So, it is a good thing in that regard.
I have had others in my thoughts as well. Wrote a brief note to a friend down in Georgia. Been thinking of birthday wishes in a very broad sense for another. Need to call my friend Nikki on Wednesday and I need to look at my calendar for some time to visit T & R along with their little monsters, Th & Geo.
I just got off work and decided to spoil myself with a little breakfast. Of course, can Denny's be really considering yourself? On second thought, I have to say emphatically "yes". A real breakfast has been a rare thing while I have b een here and I do enjoy a real, big breakfast with all the trimmings every now and again. And after this monstrous, tasty repast, I will be ready to hibernate. It is also giving me time to think (positively), relax and enjoy myself. Actions that I do not get to pursue with any regularity - particularly at the Spook House.
I slept fitfully this morning and came to full wakedness around noon. I am not sure of the reason but it let me read something that got me thinking about doing something. I know the sentiment behind it would not be appreciated but I took steps anyways to do something to satify the urge. It'll likely never be sent but it gave me a moment's satisfaction. Wish the thoughts could haved waited until later. Took forever to find sleep again.
