It was a little like being thrown into a bubbling cauldron today. After a month or more of holiday preparations and a day or two of celebrations, it would have been almost impossible to have a normal work day and follow it with a normal weekend. At least, thatís my excuse for doing next to nothing today. The real reason is that I was so worn out I could hardly move.

This is not how it was planned! Today was the only day until after the first of the year that the Boss will be in the office, and the plan was to take advantage of his presence to get ready for his absence. If I could depend on him to check in with me for messages once a day, I wouldnít have to stew and fret so much when he leaves town. Instead of using the day wisely, I did as little as I could get away with and put the rest off for a less convenient time.

Sunlit cloud.

Itís not as if I spent the last two days doing anything that would exhaust me like this. All I did was show up. And eat, and drink, and absorb the general merriment. I try to contribute, but Iím better at absorbing. Somehow it added up to being incoherent and immobile for long periods today. And that, in turn, maps out my course for the weekend. I have to spend the next two days doing what I didnít do today, assuming Iím coherent, and mobile.
