I swear my intention was to write a fully positive, uplifting, and inspiring blog this morning.
My dentist proclaimed me cavity free, spent quality time with my mom, and went to bed at a decent hour. All signs today was going to be going to be a good day right?
To be fair it still might end up being a good day, but it’s starting out a little rocky. I’ve been awake since 4 am. Not sure what woke me, probably the dog reacting to mom leaving for work, though I usually don’t hear any of that.
I might have been able to go back to sleep, but when I checked my phone to see what time it was I saw the covid exposure notification. No going back to sleep after that bit of adrenaline spike. Sometime over the weekend I was apparently near someone who has tested positive for covid. I’m fully vaccinated so I’m not too worried about getting sick, but now I’m having to notify those I’ve been in contact with since that I was exposed.
More importantly, it means I have to miss trivia tonight! I look forward to Tuesday nights and I am really bummed I can’t go.
There is one good thing about this morning at least. Since I’m up so early, I’m able to sign on to my sapphic author writing group’s morning sprints. I love writing with these folx. The gab sessions between sprints are fun and entertaining and sometimes I even learn things about the publishing process–usually the things to avoid by way of a rant.
My office window faces east, and I am able to see dawn approaching. There don’t appear to be many clouds in the sky so I’m not sure how spectacular the sunrise will be, but I’m appreciating the miracle of a new day nonetheless.
Turns out this might be a good day after all. Be well by friends.
