it’s i time for a change

Federal agencies are closed today for the Veteran’s Day holiday, so I have the day off. It’s the largest chunk of uninterrupted time I’ve had to myself since before my father died, really since he went back into the hospital in early September. Since then, I’ve been at work, with my family, or here with Jeff. Don’t get me wrong; I love my family and I love Jeff—and Jeff has been really great about recognizing my need for some alone time, and offering to indulge it if I but ask—but for this moderately strong Myers-Briggs I, having so little “Thom time” has sometimes been stressful and difficult, and today is turning out to be a wonderful, well-appreciated opportunity to recharge.

“Me” time…sounds SO good. Enjoy.
