I had to drive to work today. I had worked on a particular project at home and had to bring it to work. It would have been cumbersome on my walk to work. While I was terribly stressed at the beginning of the day, I managed to get one of my more pressing projects completed and my day steadily improved from there. I actually left work in a decent mood.
I was tired when I got home, but I had a lot to do to prepare for Diego coming over. I hadn’t cleaned anything for the past week and had a lot of catching up to do. It had also been several days since I had showered. I was actually happy when I received a text from Diego stating that he worked late and had just gotten on the train at 6pm. I continued to work on cleaning my apartment and had even started dinner when he arrived.
When he got to my place, he dug into his pocket and procured a jewelry box. He told me he had lied to me about being on the train. Instead, he had gone and bought me a gold necklace. While I typically wear silver, gold is supposed to look better with my complexion, according to my mom. He helped me put it on and I liked it very much. I had been wondering for the past few days what to get him for Christmas and I continued the inner dialogue while I finished cooking dinner.
We ate and watched TV. I had no idea how my meal, which was vastly different from Hispanic food, would agree with his tastes. He said he liked it, even though he didn’t even know the Spanish word for parsnips. He paid me an interesting compliment, stating that he liked my skin because it was strong. I didn’t know what he meant because I had been complimented in the past by guys saying my skin was so soft. I took it in the spirit that it was intended, as a compliment. Eventually we made our way to the bedroom. He was insatiable and we had sex three times before I drifted off to sleep in his arms.
Today I gave up my laziness and got stuff done when I got home.
Today I’m grateful for a good day at work, my waning stress levels, and a sweet boyfriend.
I helped the custodian with something he was doing alone and it was clearly a two person job.
I spent no time in nature today.
I spent $5.75 on parking and $5 on food today.
I slept for about 7 hours last night.
I did not meditate today.
I did not exercise today.
I did not follow my diet today.
I straightened and cleaned today.
I was showered but did not brush my teeth today.
My mood started tired and stressed and was happy by the end of the day. My temperament was good.
