It's a bit after 6am and I'll admit I wish I were getting a little more sleep at the moment, but I think that 5 or so hours I got last night are all I'll see for a while. I'm out of town at the moment and have a busy day ahead of me, and I catch my return flight at 12:40am tonight (or, tomorrow morning depending on how you look at it). I'll be flying all night and have a busy day back home tomorrow. Ugh.
The potentially good news is that I'm near the top of the upgrade list and as of this morning there are seats available in First Class. It'd be nice to have a little extra room to catch some zzzzzz's. My fingers are crossed....
I typically sleep pretty well but that hasn't been the case lately. I think it's some combination of losing weight for the event next weekend, the fact that I'm typically going to the fitness center after dinner rather than in the middle of the day (gets my system wound up), and general life change stuff. Whatever it is I'd like to get back to the days of not all that long ago where 6 or 7 hours of uninterrupted sleep were the norm, not the exception.
I visited all my worldly "stuff" yesterday. It lives in a storage unit and has been there for a year now. All the dust storms in the Phoenix area over the summer somehow pushed dust under the closed door so everything at the top of this huge pile has a layer of dry desert dust on it. Yuck. My goal for 2012 will be to be reunited with my "stuff". If things work out as I hope they do with my new work project I'll have the stability I've needed to move it all and put it into a place where I expect to be living for some period of time that's measured in more than months. Anyway, visiting it all was bittersweet.
I also had a long conversation with my ex- yesterday. We haven't spoken in months for a number of reasons and yesterday's chat was a very pleasant one. It was nice to see that the element of our relationship where we could talk about anything and everything for hours is still there. Now, of course, there are a couple of topics that we need to steer clear of because it inevitably causes an unnecessary clash but that's not difficult. I'm glad we talked and had the opportunity to catch up a bit in each others' lives.
And lastly, I had dinner with a small group of friends. That was very pleasant as well...
All in all, a busy day. But...a good one.
