Yesterday I was SOOO productive at work. It felt good to get all my hours in and feel like I got a lot done. I’m hoping for more of the same today.
The first night of Passover was yesterday. I was dated/married a Jewish man who I was with for about 20 years. I’m culturally Jewish and more Jewish than some who are Jewish it seems. Still, I was invited last night to join my Jewish, non-practicing boyfriend and his children and ex-wife for a Seder at his ex-wife’s home. The theme of today’s blog entry is I’m so uncomfortable when I’m just me and them. At the end of dinner his ex asked that we do a family selfie which I felt really uncomfortable doing. In some ways I’m their children’s bonus mom but it’s a little weird for me still. However, the dinner was nice and even a Hamilton the musical Haggadah was used and a couple of songs sung. Not too shabby. All in all it was a nice evening.
Yesterday was a good day. Through this uncertain time it’s nice when good happens. Until tomorrow.
Today I began my journey working from home. It’s quite interesting and I didn’t move as much as I did in the office but I got my hours in and felt good about it after. I’m glad I can stay focused. I know people who say they can’t work from home. So glad I’m not one of them.
I made dinner tonight. We ordered out for lunch (it was order out day I was told) so I cooked dinner. Dinner made me sick. I skipped ballet. I’m seeing in a time of Corona I need to pay attention still to what I put into my body. I get the honor of two barre classes tomorrow because you know I took the night off.
Today I felt okay. I wasn’t too overwhelmed. I stressed about money. Who isn’t right? Well, I guess the wealthy aren’t worried. Kinda sucks this all happening, viruses and all right after losing one of my jobs. I need to just be in the moment. I’m finding that if I stay in the moment I’m more calm.
Finally, for today. A little note for you all is that you can never watch This is Us and watch the season finale and be good to know you never need to watch it. Ha! This show is emotionally draining. Won’t do that again!
