I’ve not had the most straightforward morning. I went to bed too late (although I really enjoyed staying up to watch Good Will Hunting with Neil), and my brain usually needs some chill out time before sleep, so that meant a rocky slumber at best. I missed my regular morning walk because of this (I needed to sleep in a little) and that has disrupted my routine even further. Add to that the pressures and chaos of moving and I crashed. I had a cry. I took a couple headache pills. I laid down for a few minutes.
I have regrouped somewhat and I can tell you that a eating a piece of buttered toast with peanut butter and strawberry jam on it had a lot to do with me feeling better. Warm, full of protein, and a hit of sweet. It is a combination made in comfort food heaven. I still have a headache, but I’m sitting at my desk with a cup of Keemun Panda tea and am getting on with my day.
I assembled an old desk in what will be my new, shared office space. It’s progress in an otherwise chaotic relocation. I’m not particularly good with change in the best of times, but having a clear desk ready for my computing environment is a pleasant little stepping stone of calm in my path, even if it will be weeks before it gets set up.
This past weekend marked the first days of moving for me, and in this transition, it’s imperative that I find an interim work routine. Productivity cannot cease for the next month as I get my shit in order; that would mean lost time and revenue. I cannot afford that. So, with that in mind, I think I might stock up on some peanut butter and jam. I’m gonna need it.
