Day 1, in reflection

Yesterday was a truly good day.

I was able to be a good mom and help my youngest in two ways: delivering homework to the school and finding his long-lost glasses (they were in the lost and found). Unfortunately, when told that his project was in the office, he assumed it was one of his prior attempts, and didn’t retrieve it. At least it’s already there, waiting for him.

Then, I was highly productive at work, prepping and cooking and my relief was on time. Sometimes, there’s just nothing more satisfying.

After work, I headed into town to deposit my check and do a little shopping. On of my favorite people had a birthday recently, and I got to enjoy seeing his joy when I gave him his gift.

While I was shopping for gifts, I decided to get one for myself, as well. In food service, you are not supposed to have open containers such as cups in your work area. If you are drinking, it should be from a closed container with a straw. Well, I work at a bar. You can imagine that providing employee cups like large corporations do would not be high on their priority list. Plus, the cups are only 24 ounces, and once I add ice (kitchens are hot; ice cold water helps prevent heat stroke), there’s little room left for my beverage. So, yesterday, I remedied my problem.

I am now the proud possessor of a 32 ounce, lidded jar with a handle, the lid is pink, and the straw is pink and bright blue. I can’t really express how ridiculously happy it makes me. No more having to either dehydrate at work, or refill my cup every 10 minutes (ok, that was an exaggeration, but sometimes, it’s the truth).

I ended my evening with family time and watching some of my favorite shows. Then, I went to bed early, as intended, and actually slept well.

All in all, a wonderful day.

Now, can I pull it off today? My prediction: yes. 🙂
