Your kiddo may think you're just staring off into space, but in reality you're deep in thought. Ask them not to disturb this process today, because it's necessary. But if you nod off, they are allowed to wake you!
Your thinking is even deeper than usual today, so you may find that you need to hide away for a bit to avoid distractions. You should arrive at some really interesting conclusions!
Food, family friends -- three things you can't live without. Put aside the career climbing instinct today and plan an elaborate feast for the people near and dear to you. It'll be less about eating tonight, and more about accepting the applause of your adoring diners.
If you're traveling for a specific event (hello, maid of honor!), take a tip from the scouts and be prepared. You never know when you'll need clear polish and bonding tape. It's like packing peace of mind.
