My Manic Monday

October 15, 2013

I learned two things today:

1. I have way too many cups at my desk

2. Always be prepared at work.  You never know when the big wigs will come in and ask you to do a last minute presentation.   Make sure to have that pocket stain remover at hand, or if you are me and know that you can’t be trusted with light colored clothing and coffee then JUST STAY AWAY FROM THE COFFEE.  At least I sprayed some dry shampoo in my hair before I left the house this A.M.

Other than that, for a Monday, I feel great,  Anything feels great after being sick with a cold for 5 days.  I was supposed to have a 4 day weekend to have a play date with my niece and to have time to look good for my man (yes, I need an entire day).  But as always, God had a different plan and I was under the covers with Nyquil and tissues.

However, the man did come home and I pulled myself together to spend sometime with him.  I never, EVER, thought I could do this long distance relationship thing.  EVER.  Like serious, I always thought couples who signed up for them were idiots that love to toture themselves.  As it turns out, like everything else in life, I adjust.

I have accepted our new life of suit cases and frequent flyer miles.  I no longer ugly cry and avoid eye contact at terminals.  I can drop him off at the airport in confidence that it truly isn’t goodbye but see you later.  I was reflecting with him about all things that I thought mattered when we lived in the same state.  Laughing about what I thought were obstacles before.  I would get upset if we didn’t have a date night planned every weekend and now I am just so excited to be in the same room as him.  God truly does provide what we need as long as we put one foot in front of the other and trudge.

When I was drinking it used to be so hard for me to do anything.  Going to target was an all day event and an accomplishment.  Getting gas was the WORST!  Everything was a tragedy.  If I had to work for anything it just wasn’t worth it.

Today its not like that.  Today I look at the day and handle what it brings or dance in the music it plays.  I had no idea the life I would get when I got sober.  I didn’t realize the joys and responsibilities it would bring.  I had no idea that it would teach me how to live life and roll with the punches.  I am the most impatient person I know and God gave me the most patient person I know to love and then he put us in the most complicated of situations (maybe I still think everything is a tragedy) .  Sometimes it makes me crazy, but in the end it always teaches me something new, like how to pause and trust that no matter what, it will work out as long as I give it a chance too.
