it’s quiet – really quiet – inside and out

stay-cation thus far: 3 x good sleeps, 1 x 2-hr nap, 12 mini chocolate cupcakes (friday). batch of homemade donuts (today). we watched The Shawshank Redemption yesterday + a good/horrible TV show called Nashville. I ran yesterday and today, will run tomorrow. very little in the way of real cooking.

yesterday my only achievements were:  20 minute run and one load of laundry (i put it in, he took it out and hung to dry) … i mean, yesterday we went out for bfast, husband made tea and coffee during the day, then he made tuna sandwiches for dinner. today he started off my morning with eggs on toast (post-run) and then i made donuts. it’s 3:30 pm. no one’s thinking of lunch or dinner. no one cares.  it’s gray outside, but sunny in my head, which is all you can ask for. Neighbors are all away (holiday weekend) and you could shoot a cannon through downtown.  it’s quiet — really quiet — inside and out. tomorrow i’ll aim to achieve even less.  i will run and maybe start one load of laundry. that’s it. cuz my next 4 day long weekend is at the end of June so i want to make this one a good one …

I want to put this online, to hold myself accountable. I want to document the noise in my head. I'm tired of thinking about drinking. date of last drink: june 30, 2012

  • I love it! Shawshank is such a great movie – I dream of the mexican beach they end up in the end, and cry every time. I am such a sucker for happy endings…I’m glad you’re having a great stay-cation. I am planning one of those in June. A weekend of doing NOTHING but hanging at home and resting, reading, sleeping, watching good AND bad tv! Congrats!!!! xox E

  • Like it! I have some time off next week. I may give this stay-cation attitude a go.
    Will let you know how I get on. I am awful at switching off – no off switch, look where that got me 🙂

    • if your postcard also includes teaming pouring rain, then I’m there! and my feets are cold, but I’m too lazy to get any socks. that’s extent of my effort today! husband? where’s my socks : ) (I did finally make a pot of tea, myself, with my own effort. it was exhausting.)

  • You remind me of how important it is to take care of ourselves and our needs, among the daily obligations and caring for a family. Friday I am off of work and am going to recharge my battery and do lots of things I ‘want to do’ rather than ‘have to do’! 🙂
