I didn't blog yesterday and it is a good thing.
It's been an emotional couple of days. So much so that I checked to see if it was a certain time of the month. It wasn't in case you wanted a lot of personal information.
I can't blame it on that.
Really all that does is tell me that I am not overreacting to anything and my feelings are all justified.
Since I operate under the premise that you don't drink to make a bad day better, only drink to make a good day great... it meant I needed a different coping mechanism for unwinding this evening and hopefully setting the rest of the week back on track.
I chose this:
Works EVERY time.
I did have one bright spot during the day...
I spent all day yesterday doing the structural design for a custom house. The house is HUGE. 2 stories with a daylight basement. All the walls have windows and there are large open spans with no walls or beams. It was complicated. And as I'm looking through the plans, talking through the design challenges with my boss, I realized that I was pointed things out to him more than he was pointing them out to me.
It was just this awesome feeling of... expertise I guess? I don't know. It was nice. And tomorrow, when I am working another 9 hour day with no break, I will hold on to that feeling so that I don't lose my mind.
