Like a Phoenix

The past week at work has been rough, but today I rose like a Phoenix. It’s not easy to talk on the phone for eight hours a day when you feel like garbage. Especially when you’re in sales and need to sound upbeat and confident all day. I guess you can say I’m driven. To be honest, my sales haven’t been terrible. They just haven’t been where I think they should be until today.

Every call converted this morning, which was absolutely epic. I needed a big day to put me back on track with my personal goals. Today was that day! Now I’m back on track and ready to finish the month on top. Honestly, I’m still not feeling 100 percent. This cold thing is lingering! I do, however, feel significantly better today.

The Mayor’s hockey season officially kicked off today, so we’re back to the rat race. I’m excited for both boys’ seasons. Hopefully, this season will be less disjointed than last year. Nonetheless, both of the boys are on great teams with fabulous coaches, kids and families. It’s going to be a great year!

Here’s a list of our day’s activities:

*I’m reading Far From the Madding Crowd by Thomas Hardy last night. This is quite the departure from the world of Queen Asa.

*I’m still under the weather. Consequently, I took another rest day today.  Unfortunately, there will be no rollicking or running until I’m better.

*We’re tracking the Tropics here in Florida. Fortunately, all the tropical weather is moving away from us!

*The hubby picked up Dunkin’ this morning, which was awesome sauce.

*For dinner, I made some chicken and mozzarella. This week I’m strictly limiting my carb intake as part of the 5:2 Plan, so it was mostly chicken for me.

*My favorite surprise on the underwater cams, I watch during work, is seeing an octopus. Today I watched the safari cam, which never disappoints.

*Today’s word of the day is luminosity, which is a big word.

*I took my puppies including sweet Anakin for a walk. Today he didn’t pull my arm off or anything like that. I put on his harness
