Or, maybe I should say, "Sleepless Wednesday"! It was 3:00 a.m. when I last looked at the clock, this morning! Then, much to my surprise, I woke up at 7:00 a.m. feeling wide awake! Not at all tired! Didn't even feel like drinking a full cup of coffee! I drank half the cup and put the rest in the fridge and had "iced coffee" when I came home from work, although I had a cup of tea, as well!
I had a productive day at the office and got a bunch of work done! A lot more than I thought I'd be able to complete! I did feel a little sleepy around 3:00 p.m., though. If I had been home, I might have taken a nap around that time. But, because I was at work, I couldn't do that! Instead, I walked around a bit and drank some water. It was freezing inside the office, as usual, but 90F outside!
After I came home, I put water to the front garden. Then, put away the laundry from yesterday, did another load, and hung it up to dry. Then, I cooked the chicken breasts I had bought, earlier. I just pan sauted them with some onions, salt and pepper. They will go well with salads or cooked vegetables or even in sandwiches. Later, I did the dishes.
I filled out more retirement paperwork, today. And made photocopies of all the documents I need to submit (birth certificates, divorce papers, etc.) Later, when I was video chatting with daughter, I was telling her about the paperwork involved and she said I sounded stressed. I was! Some of the decisions I am making will impact her; even though the ultimate decisions are mine to make, I want to be able to discuss some of the details with her, so that she is involved and informed, as well. We have decided that she will come down, next week, to go with me to the retirement counseling session.
Today, I am grateful for:
- A productive day
- My daughter will be able to accompany me to the retirement counseling session
- Water for the garden
- Safe commutes to the office and back
- A warm summer-like day
How was your Wednesday? Does paperwork stress you, too?
