Left an important part of the day out...

When I was listing my daily routine in my last post, I missed something important.

The first thing that I do every day when I get home from work is take a bath. It's at Sean's insistence, because he believes that one way to  keep us both healthy is to wash all the potential virus away with hot water and soap. So whenever one of us leaves the house, for a quick run to the grocery store or a full shift at the bookstore, it's a full body immersion in the shower or the tub to get rid of it all.

Who am I to protest against a relaxing soak? It's the one time of day I can be pretty sure I'll buckle down and read, so I usually bring a work ARC in with me. I have a glass of cold water for hydration and, increasingly, a small snack like crackers or cookies. And in the water I wind down from bookseller mode...and then wind back up into sales rep mode so I can keep working.
