I can feel it slowly creeping back, promising respite since it's something I've know for so long.  Offering comfort, since it would be so much easier to curl into a ball and not move.  But, maybe that is exactly what I need to do today.  Maybe I need to just veg out and read a love story that tugs at my heart and lifts my spirts.  Maybe I just need to get out of my own head and sink into someone else's life.  Maybe I can just leave the laundry for another day.  Maybe I can run out and do my errands before or after work tomorrow.  Maybe I really don't have to go into the office today.  Maybe I just need a day for me, which ends in cooking a wonderful dinner and a nice warm bubble bath with scented candles.  Who cares if the floors haven't been vacuumed or the apartment hasn't been dusted this week.  There is always tomorrow, but today is for me!   tongue

Take that time for yourself and enjoy it. Everything else will still be there tomorrow, but for now just relax.

That sounds like a plan for me too.

I ended up watching the movie "Bucket List" instead. It was quite good. It made me laugh and cry, which at least in my book, gets two thumbs up! :) I'm at the laundrymat now waiting for my clothes, so I figured I would check my email and catch up on what's going on here. It's funny, I was all frustrated last night about this guy that I went out with a couple of times, since I hadn't heard from him in a while and then tonight he calls and invites me over to his house for dinner. I'm flattered, but I told him straight out that I don't have any clean underware and I've got to do my laundry tonight. Who knows what he thinks of me now, but hey if he can't plan ahead, why should I drop everything for him, right?

You made me LOL....that is definitely a twist on the old "I'm washing my hair." At least it was true, you needed to do laundry. You're right, next time he needs to call a little further in advance. Good for you for not dropping everything, even something as mundane as laundry, to be with him.
