This morning, I woke up thinking about work. I went to the grocery store at 4:30 this morning to buy plastic cups for a DNA lab. I stirred my coffee with a pencil (on accident). I heated up my Ramen noodles in a 600 mL beaker (left my bowl at home). I sat through student meetings, parent meetings and co-worker meetings. To put it frankly, this was a day where every thought and action was work oriented.
And it is done now. I love my job but I also love days that have a little bit more balance. Tomorrow is a new day that will run at a little bit of a slower pace. And for this, I am thankful.
