waiting for the day to be over

I'm stuck here in a quiet office where the phone isn't ringing and no clients are sending emails. It's Good Friday, and while a majority of the studio and unions have the day off, us schedulers are here, waiting for our phones to ring.

There's a small chance I could get one, maybe two orders today - and they could come in at any time - so I'll have to be here until 6pm. Or maybe 5:30pm. See, because there was no traffic, I flew through the freeways, and went ahead and clocked in at 8:30am. Guess I'll see if the boss approves. Whoa - just got a call. Nice.

It's a gloomy, rainy day today, but I'm not feeling so gloomy myself. For the first time this week (several weeks, actually) I'm feeling a bit relaxed about being here at work. Obviously, today is yielding a relaxed atmosphere, but I'm looking ahead to the weekend with a great deal of glee. I was going to give Erik a break this weekend to let him focus on school stuff, and just stay down here, maybe go out shopping for some new clothes (a twice-annual occurrence, tops).

But who am I kidding? I can't resist seeing him when any opportunity arises. I've packed a book to read, and I'm still planning on going out (by myself if need be) to do some much-needed shopping, so I'll be able to give him at least a bit of a break. Then on Sunday we're gonna head down to L.A. again to hang out with his family for the Easter holiday. It'll be nice.

So, that's it. I'm feeling "nice" right now, which is a welcome break from my recent norm of chronic despair.
