Took Friday off and spent most of the weekend sleeping, which is how I tend to deal with stress. Finished reading a few books that I’d been sitting on for awhile, cleaned the kitchen, the bathroom, vacuumed the throw rugs, watered the plants indoors and out, did the laundry, packed my gym clothes for the week, cooked some tomato soup and made a salad for lunch.
I gave myself the weekend to relax. One weekend where I tried really hard not to think about all the things I wasn’t doing, the things I should be doing, because I needed a break from gnawing at myself. I think I’ve been mostly successful. Lord knows I’ve gotten a lot of reading done. I’m hoping the long downtime will help kick-start my week. Jenn’s gone until the 28th, and then it’ll be September, and I’ll have another long weekend, one where I’ll hopefully get some shit done.
Honestly, I’m looking forward to cool nights and a blanket of leaves.
