I’m a wee bit embarassed for the earlier rant. Not too much, just a little, you know? But the outpouring of support after was quite a relief. When you can get close friends, near friends, medium-distance friends and even complete strangers to give you a pat on the back, you must be doing something right with your life. Something others are reacting to in a way that suggests it’s all worthwhile. (It’s always worthwhile, but FEELING it helps quite a bit.)
I do wanna apologize to all my close friends who I didn’t call/contact when I was feeling like smeg. I guess since that evening’s problems had stemmed from events with one particular friend, I turned to them first. But that’s not because I loathe and despise the existence of the whole stinking lot of the rest of you. I’ll try harder to keep you folks filled in from now on. Good to know I have a local support network with excellent bandwidth and latency.
And the nice thing is that now after two rather nasty days at work (lots of high speed activity yesterday, boring meetings today)… FOUR DAY WEEKEND.
And the best thing? 3.5 of those days are just open ended, unscheduled, at home relaxation. Tomorrow it’s gonna snow, and I’m gonna tinker with music, maybe play games. Watch a movie. Sunday I’ll do the same, but with my friends dropping in for the Royal Rumble — a PPV I’m really looking forward to. Monday, I play, I have fun, I rest — monday night, WWF Raw, but not a biggie since that whole day was free. And Tuesday? I take one day of vacation leave just to sit around and relax.
Words can’t express how great that is. It’s not wall to wall scheduled and coordinated fun — there’s some, but it’s the right amount, you know? The rest is just time to rest and recover from a very unhappy week. And I think I’m going to enjoy my time.
