Starting Over

Score: +3.5

It has been a successful recovery period after a big downswing. This weekend has left me feeling rejuvenated and refreshed. I’m glad to be going back to work. I need the return of routine so I can stabilize. I feel like things get bad for me when I deviate from the schedule. 

We had the boy this weekend, and he was pretty good. Amanda and I celebrated our first year together on Friday. We stayed in a hotel and ordered room service. It was nice to get away from home and do something different. The cats were not happy that we stayed away for a night. Their little routine was interrupted as well. We had a good time regardless. 

It has been a good break. I knew things were trending up at the end of last week. Now I feel capable and ready to resume action. I know there’s going to be a lot of stuff to do, but I’m looking forward to it, oddly enough. I want to feel responsible again. 

I think I’m going to have a good week. I just have this itch that tells me things are trending in a good direction. Getting up tomorrow will be hard, as it typically is. Monday is perhaps the hardest of the five mornings. And mine this week will be six as I picked up a Saturday. I’m ready.
