I didn't have enough coffee this morning. I thought I'd have enough, but then forgot my travel cup at the hotel. Woe is me. This is after I had to call and complain about them sending me the wrong food for breakfast, so maybe I'll see if PB&J toast has the same wakeup properties as caffeine. I doubt it, but it might be something interesting to find out.
There are a lot of people here who have only ever heard my voice on the phone or over an email. I'm doing my very best to give them a good first impression of me as a Real Person. I like being a Real Person. I with I was more caffeinated, but I'll go with rhinestones and arm sling.
It's a good thing I've had a little training on how to teach. Those summers teaching high school students science are paying off today in this moment. Luckily, I've already answered all these questions many times before for other people, so I can sound like I know what I'm talking about.
The internet is slow. I'm VPNed to Remote Desktop, which should make me feel like I"m living in the future, but all I can think is how frustrated I am that it's slow. Argh.
Ooh! New smut campaign on IndieGoGo. I love their books, since there's actual plot to go along with the smut. This makes me happy. Go! Give them funds! http://igg.me/p/throne-of-the-depths/x/1374969
Water does not have the same wake-up properties as coffee or tea. Why didn't I pack tea for my trip? This is not a good situation for a caffeine junkie like me. Maybe it's a sign that I should be dialing back on the caffeine. Maybe.
I miss dance. I want my arm to heal, but I also want to dance. I want it to heal so I can use it and I need to use it in dance, but I have all these ideas and my body is slowly falling out of dance shape. I want to veil to Lama Bada for SitG, but if I can't use my arm to work on the choreo, should I just drop out? I don't want to push it and end up hurting myself more, but dance is one of the things that keeps me going on a daily basis and I haven't had it in my life lately. This is not good. Not good at all. Worse than not having tea.
I was asked last night if maybe I need a Zulily and Totsy intervention. I know I impulse purchase too much, but the reason these last boxes were huge is because I was buying storage. I got Ox a toybox for his big boy room. I got some storage bins for blankets and stuffies in the living room, and I got some bins for my dance stuff and hats. I know I have too much stuff, but the excitement of getting mail and having one thing to look forward to is a habit I picked up that first year of grad school when everything went all to hell. I haven't been able to shake it.
Going to stop. Need to return to positivity before customer people come back to the room and I have to interact and be Super Sabine again. They love me, they tell their co-workers that they love me. Now I need to make sure that I can return their love with awesomeness of my own.
I miss my kids. Lots.
