My birthday today (Aug. 27) had a crazy start, but it turned out okay.
From 8 a.m. to 9:30 a.m., I was revising my article on a quarry blasting in Ringwood based on my editors’ suggestions. However, one of them said that it would be okay for me to take more time on the article by doing more in-depth research. She said it’d be okay to postpone the article for the Wednesday, Sept. 2 issue.
I was feeling the stress in trying to turn this article in on time. But once I put my job behind me and decided to enjoy my birthday and vacation, it was rather nice. My boyfriend and I went to the Dautaj Restaurant in Warwick, N.Y. while my daughter had a play date with my boyfriend’s co-worker’s daughters. At the restaurant, I had a grilled salmon saturated with Dijon sauce for lunch. We had fun, they had fun. Afterwards, we went back to my boyfriend’s house and I took a nap. I needed it, since I stayed up until 5 a.m. this morning watching nostalgic cartoons from my childhood on YouTube.
I woke up at around 5 p.m. And later today, my daughter and I are going to get ice cream. I want a banana split from Dairy Queen, which I’ve been longing for. Yum!
