Not in Kansas anymore

My week has been an experience of stepping through the looking glass to be sure. The birth of my client's daughter definitely sent me through to the other side of reality, oh yeah. It was as if I had jet lag for a couple of days afterwards. That event also shifted my work schedule so that I'll be working Monday-Friday next week. What's weird is that I have this weekend free, a freakishly rare experience that is perfectly timed to give me a break I sorely need before heading into my busy week.

This is now normal people do it - quiet weekends and busy work weeks. Hmmm. I am running with the pack for this week at least.

This morning I'm drinking coffee, listening to the Mozart station on Pandora radio and reading the New York Times. It's a lifestyle I could get used to, I'll tell you, though in truth there are days during the week I spend exactly like this. There is something about Sundays, isn't there?

Later today I'll go visit the baby and family in their natural environment, do some errands, cook a Sunday supper. Funny, isn't it, that adjusting my behavior to cultural norms feels, to me, like being in an alternate reality? Ha. Happy Sunday. Shalom.
