single lady wednesdays: getting your house in order
Lately I have been all over the map. I saw JtB, went downtown to the beach and ran to a train with a pizza in my hand and it's kinda been AWESOME. But I have a secret...
For all of you scoffing out there I'm telling you the truth. In order to actually see Joy the Baker I had to really mentally prepare. Social situations tend to drain me like no other and I end up withdrawing instead of being happy. Actually the day after seeing Joy, I went to a store meeting and ended up in tears because it was just... too much. It's weird and complex but I know how to deal with it... I just can't deal with a LOT of it all at one time.
I'm using today to catch up with myself. Sometimes I need to make a 5 cup pot of coffee for just myself and drink it all day. I need to make warm oatmeal with brown sugar, pecans and dried cherries... it's like eating a warm hug. I've also GOT to spend some time without pants on today because I've been oppressed by them for too long! (don't get me started on how much i hate wearing pants)
I'm throwing open my windows and letting my room air out... mostly because I'm behind on laundry and maybe it smells up in here.
I need to do laundry...
...and clean my room and make my bed....
Having things clean actually clears out the cobwebs in my brain. I can't design when my desk is cluttered, it's like the things on my desk climbed into my brain and sat. just waiting for me to put them away.
I recommend playing a BANGIN' Spotify playlist as loud as possible, opening every window you can see out of and just sing, dance and clear them cobwebs. Literally and figuratively.
...and then i'll be going out later on this evening : )
