If we were having coffee, you’d probably tell me that it’s late and that I should probably be getting to bed soon. To that, I would reply with an audible sigh and a shrug of my shoulders before saying, “yes, I know.”
So, I’m having instant again tonight. It was almost hot cocoa, but coffee won out. I can get you either if you would like or maybe you would like something colder. Pretty sure there’s some ginger ale in the fridge.
You see, the fact that I should be in bed doesn’t bother me too much. Not right now anyway. Tomorrow morning, that may change. That’s when I’ve got to go back to work. My first day back since Tuesday after taking off for the Thanksgiving holiday.
Thanksgiving was a mixed bag, but aren’t all holidays. All of them that require time spent with large groups of people, be they family or not. Being around that many people can be taxing on a little ole introvert like me, but we all managed to get through the day without killing one another. We’ll get to try again next year though, and it’ll be here before you know it.
Being off of work was the best though. We spent some time at the beach after Thanksgiving, where I was able to wake up and run in the sand with the waves just right there, crashing at my feet. That won’t happen again for a while. I swear, if I lived on the beach, I’d be out there running almost everyday. At least until I’m too old to do it. I know that day’s coming, but I’m gonna fight it every step of the way. What else can I do?
With December just a day or two away, we’ll have to start gearing up for Christmas. Another of those holidays that tries all of our introvert nerves out there. We can persevere though. I know that we can make it through. Stay strong my introverted friends. There are quiet days ahead.
