Because I was so conscientious yesterday, and went to work when I was not expected there, I decided to play hooky today and call in sick. I was supposed to have gone to a meeting with the web designer and two other people including my boss, but I think it was really not crucial that I was there and I will hear about what was discussed later.
I did have a stomach upset because I ate a creamy mustard soup that did not agree with me at all. Unfortunately I could not make more vegetable soup or I would have had that instead, but when I go grocery shopping this weekend, I will make sure that I can eat it all of next week.
I slept late this morning and did not get up until allmost ten o'clock. This was such a pleasant surprise that I sat around in my bathrobe for another hour. I do so enjoy allowing myself some laziness and the first cups of coffee always taste so good and need to be lingered over. After that, I always need a few glasses of ice cold water and then I can get started. I suppose I need the right mixture of fuel to get on my way.
I just defriended someone on Facebook whose posts had been mildly irritating me for some time. I had been trying to ignore them but finally made a comment on one of them, although I knew I would get some sort of angry reaction. When I did, it was so mean that it made me blush. I deleted it and will forget it and carry on. It did bother me and I guess that is why I mention it. I guess she had not liked me all along.
I am learning a lot about human nature and that there is really no one out there who is normal, however you define that term. I think we all have an idea of what we expect a normal person to be like. They do not exist, but that does not mean that there are no funny or agreeable people, or admirable ones for that matter.
I like lots of things about all sorts of people, but that does not mean that I want to be best friends with them. I like the distance I have between the people I admire now and appreciate the few close contacts that I have. I always thought that when I grew up (about now) I would have lots of friends and be intimate with at least a few. Imagine my surprise when this turned out not to be the case at all and I find that I am my own best friend.
