workday craving

I really should quit stopping by Panera's for an IC Caramel on the way home from work unless I'm off the next day. (Panera's website describes it as "Creamy caramel blended with espresso and ice, topped with fresh whipped cream and drizzled with caramel syrup.") Incredibly delicious, cool and refreshing, but the caffeine kick sneaks up on me. I usually go to bed on work nights around 11pm and get up at 6am. Last night I was relaxing and enjoying myself when I finally noticed it was 1am already - and I woke back up at 5am, an hour before the alarm clock. Ugh!

Man, I could really use one of those about now. Maybe I'll take a long lunch and walk over to Starbucks or the Coffee Beanery to pick up something...

one night at a time

I was feeling out of sorts earlier today, so I used the Orphalese Tarot software to deal three cards from Tarot of Dreams, with no particular spread in mind.

From left to right: Death, Five of Cups, and Two of Swords

I'm going through a grieving process as part of my job change. The thing I miss most about my previous life is the nights I didn't have to work, just relaxing in a quiet house, no distractions or demands on my time other than those I chose to let in.

That's probably my biggest hurdle in getting turned around to a day shift schedule - letting go of the 'still of the night'. Speaking of which, it's time to log off and let tonight go....
