Sometimes I don't recognize myself

Remember that time Heidi quit her job after eight months? 

No, me either, but I did. 

I quit a perfectly nice job, with the world's best boss...

Completely out of character. 

I don't know why, but that job just never felt quite right, despite having a lot of great elements, and being part of an excellent organization.  I just felt sort of adrift and lonely and I suppose a little bored, and in the end I suppose I need a little more urgency in my work life. 

My mother tells me that I am the only person that would ever quit a job because it wasn't hard enough.

So now I am onto something different.

In between my shocking quitting behavior, Mark and I went to Cancun for a few days, to celebrate our 15 anniversary (from April) and a few other things.
We stayed here and swam there, and it was pretty freaking lovely.  We like to swim a lot, so that was good.  It is the off season in Mexico, so there was hardly anyone in the hotel, and that was good too.  We stayed in a spa resort, devoted health, so it was pretty tricky to get a cocktail- a juice or smoothy? No problem. 
That was my only complaint.
They had very fancy mattresses, and slippers and bathrobes.  
One night we slept for 12 hours straight.  It was amazing, for two insomniacs.

So I am in a phase of my life that makes me think of this song

Maxwell asked me for a snack, so I fixed him this...  and then he said "I am so SICK of healthy food." which made me laugh at him, which enraged him, and the whole situation reminded me of this song
