Sunny Day

Something amazing just happened.

I had a working lunch planned, and headed to the restaurant to meet my colleague.  At the last minute he had to cancel.  I was already at the restaurant, and mildly annoyed...but then I realized is about 85 degrees and sunny today...the restaurant has outdoor seating...and I do not have my kids with me nor anyone else who needs anything from me...and I have this time slotted off on my calendar.

So I asked for a table outside.  And I looked at the menu, ordered, and ate.  Solo.  I even made a conscious effort to not spend the whole time staring at my phone (fully admitting I did sneak a peak or two to be sure the world hadn't announced any upcoming explosions.  It hadn't.).

 I am pretty good company.
