The following was written in 2010; nothing has been changed. Like what you’ve read? Enjoy my #tb (throwback) blog series as I count down the days until my second book, How to Make Lemonade, is released on December 2nd!
DAY 29: WAKE UP CALL
Thursday, May 20, 2010
Today’s task got me out of bed at 5:30. That’s right, five and a half hours into the day I was up and showering, ready to tackle today’s assignment. I don’t know about you, but I am ready for these 30 days to be finished.
Don’t get me wrong, these tasks have helped tremendously, but damn they keep me on my toes.
Today, my task was to go to breakfast alone. Much like the movies, eating alone is something I’ve done several times before, and I don’t mind it at all. It’s quite nice sometimes.
So I rolled into one of my favorite breakfast joints—IHOP—before 7 am. That coffee was much appreciated. I considered bringing my laptop to write the post mid-task, but I figured it was important just to have some “me time.” So I brought a book (I am still reading the book from Day 9; I have had NO time to read!).
Of course, I ditched my single-girl diet and indulged in some major calories this morning, going with the stuffed French-toast combo (that means eggs, hash browns, and bacon, bitch). It was delicious! Maybe if I worked out once a year, I could treat myself to these kind of treats more often.
Anyway, breakfast alone was very nice. The restaurant wasn’t crowded and it was nice not to be rushing around my apartment before driving straight to the office to deal with…well, Lumberg.
Tomorrow is Day 30, and as I said earlier, I am ready for these to be finished. However, I can’t believe how fast it went. I can’t believe I haven’t talked to HIM in a month. I am also a little nervous about moving forward; will I continue to progress without my daily tasks? Only time will tell.
