Good calm day.
No more free floating rage or sadness. Willing to write the whole thing off as viral and/or hormonal. Feeling much more like myself again.
Once more I was reminded how great waking up rested and totally functional is - had an early appointment for the car and it was just no trouble to be up, dressed and out the door on a -vacation- day. Even if it is just routine stuff being fully -present- is just so much better. Doubly so on vacation which for so many years was a three syllable word for "drink freely without worry about getting up in the morning."
Breaking the cycle of drink/up too late/bad sleep/up too early/repair strategies/repeat is the best thing ever for vacation. You get so much -time- back.
