Walking to the T this morning, I saw Allie ahead of me and caught up with her. She said she had hoped to bump into me yesterday (y'know, my actual birthday), but hey. I gave her the very abbreviated version of yesterday's lunch and my conversation with Cailin afterward. Allie said sometimes she thinks I should be a diplomat. I think I would need to be significantly more assertive to be a diplomat -- I just tend toward conciliatory. (I was reminded of the conversation I had with my mom that morning about my being assertive in relationships.)
I did ~30min in the weight room this morning.
What is up with my having actual work to do at work? I have personal emails to write and suchlike. *channels musesfool* (Though when my calendar reminded me to fill out my timesheet this afternoon, I was like, "It's Thursday already? Really?" Even though I obviously knew that since I knew I was going to group tonight.)
Heh, Amy (newest hire) came in about quarter past 11 and said hi and then "Happy birthday." That was sweet.
Gabby (coffee delivery guy) saw the flowers this morning and figured it must be my birthday, so when he came by in the afternoon he talked to me and I explained that yes my birthday was yesterday and they were a nice surprise when I got back from lunch yesterday. He wished me: A long life . . . a healthy one, and a good one.
I had real food today. I wasn't hungry before I left for work, so I had post-gym breakfast: oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar, and a strawberry-banana smoothie. And lunch was mushroom ravioli with broccoli, tomatoes, sundried tomatoes, pesto, and cream sauce. And at group, Mike made butter and herb pasta and Meredith made fruit salad and brought raisin bread from the Kendall Sq. farmer's market. And then we went to JP Licks afterward. I wasn't craving ice cream and considered not getting any, given yesterday, but I got a small black raspberry.
Have I mentioned how nice it is outside? We had lunch outside and it was really quite lovely. And then walking home from group. Okay, my apartment is still hot and stuffy, but my bedroom cools off fairly easily once I turn the window fan on. Hopefully Saturday will be good.
