Feeling Fragile

This morning I'm a little fragile. Not emotionally, I'm still mostly just numb about all that stuff. I'm pretty sure when it kicks in and I realise what's happened is for real, it's going to be dreadful tho. And I do get pangs of that every so often, but I'm trying to ignore that right now. Never before have I so enjoyed the distraction of work!

So this morning I'm a little fragile because we had a work function yesterday. And being on the People Forum (it's like SRC at work) I was involved. It was basically a final send-off of 2006 just for our department at our manager's house. It had a Greek theme with lamb on a spit and we'd organised Greek plates to break when we had our mini Awards ceremony for all the silly things people have done thruout the year. It was good fun. It started at 12:30 and I was one of the last to leave at 10 that evening (sorry Loulou for missing the sushi!). Somehow by the end of the evening, everyone who was still there ended up in the swimming pool, fully clothed! And then, since the water was pretty chilly, we moved the party into the jacuzzi. Got to play a few games of pool too - haven't done that in ages, Bean hated pool. And I wasn't completely terrible, although out of practice. Admittedly I lost both one-on-one games, but only by 1 ball. Good fun was had by all :)

Anyway, I drank far more than I should've and ate too little ... but hey, I had a good reason. I'm sure Bean did the same last night as well, since I know he also had a work function and well, he's prone to that at those sorts of things. I hope someone was looking after him.

Before I go I'd like to congratulate my folks on reaching their 27th wedding anniversary today - wow! Good thing I phoned mom & reminded her ;) they're not very good with that sort of thing. And to my friend Bug-E: Happy Birthday, I hope it's a good one.

Oh, I nearly forgot to mention that my folks are coming up to Jhb for a few days, they arrive tomorrow. I'm really looking forward to that, especially with all that's going on in my life emotionally (no one can look after you quite like your mommy!) and the fact that I won't be with them over Christmas either. So, I'm taking Monday off to spend with them and I'll be back & blogging on Tuesday. Till then ...
