I remembered!

Ugh, today was like a marathon in the office.  I spent the day with uncomfortable headphones stuffed in my ears, trying to decipher some really horrible radio traffic.  I feel like my ears still have something in them.  Bleh.  I really wanted to finish all the dispatches, but I didn’t have time to listen and transcribe.  I only really got about halfway through.

Dinner last night was a definite success.  A good time was had by all, and the food was yummy.  Although I did not get egg rolls — talk about expensive!  I also managed to run to the only WalMart in the area that doesn’t carry them, apparently.  The sweet and sour chicken in particular was a huge hit.

We hadn’t had friends over just for kicks in a very, very long time, and I had nearly forgotten how much I enjoy it.  It’s so much fun to sit around and hang out and have dinner and be chill.  I can’t wait to do it , and I really hope we get to do it soon with our college friends (we’re tentatively planning a trip back there in May).

Ugh, my brain still hurts from work, and this computer’s not helping.  I need a nap.

    The one thing that I find frustrating about work sometimes is that, when things get really busy, it is so very hard to just turn it all off when it’s time to go home. It makes my brain tired, and it makes it harder to sleep (especially when I give in to the brain-tired and take a nap ;)).

    I’m glad your dinner went well, though! I’ve realized that I actually really like having people over, and it makes me wish I had a bigger living space, and that I had more people to invite. It’s such a lovely feeling to provide good hospitality as a backdrop to fun conversation and socializing. 🙂

      Oh yeah, I have a hard time with bringing work home with me. That’s why the drive home is so very important for me — gives me a chance to at least try to shut things down. Sometimes it works, but not always. The most annoying thing is that when I have good ideas at home, I often can’t put them to paper — too much confidential information. 😛

      I think that you nailed what I love about having people over: the good hospitality that just makes the company comfortable and makes things work.
