Today

Today I am older than I was yesterday. Today I am one day closer to getting pregnant. Today I am more frustrated with work than I was yesterday. Today I am more in love with my husband than I ever have been.

Today I did laundry. Today I stripped the bed and put fresh linens on. Today I baked bread. Today I ate breakfast at 2pm. Today I saw my therapist and I cried. Today I walked my dog (lots). Today I washed dishes. Today I watched the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills Reunion. Today I sauteed onions and fresh garlic. Today I made and drank a cocktail. Today I thought about writing my novel. Today I looked for houses online to buy. Today I avoided my phone. Today I hated my job. Today I loved my husband, my mom, my sister, my nephew, my friends, my dog, all my siblings and family, and my garden. Today I listened to podcasts to avoid doing work. Today I danced in the kitchen with my dog to Lady Gaga. Today, Ralph and I were as free as our hair/fur. Today I thought about meandering a different path....

Tonight I will not obsess about the horrible things I have to do tomorrow (work). Tonight I will enjoy my husband. Tonight I will snuggle my dog. Tonight I will go to bed early. Tonight I will read my trashy vampire book. Tonight I will sleep well without having nightmares about malpractice insurance or death.

Tomorrow I will tackle the appointments I have. Tomorrow I will leave the house wearing lawyer clothes. Tomorrow I will not cry. Tomorrow I will dance in the kitchen again. Tomorrow I will be happy.
