It’s Thursday, and I have yet to do a real non-link related blog post, despite the fact that I’ve been off work all week. So what the hell have I been doing all this time? De-stressing. And it’s been fantastic.
I’ve spent the whole time without any agenda. Well, that’s actually not true; I had several ideas — I was going to have a reading vacation, and a writing vacation — but I didn’t get to them. Instead I’ve just puttered around doing a bit of reading, a bit of writing, a bit of blog reading, and some cleaning and home repair. I’ve just followed my nose wherever it lead, and I’ve accomplished a huge number of small tasks that have been nagging at me for a long time, but without any actual stress involved. It’s been lovely. I wish I could do this all day, every day.
I started out the week somewhat hampered – I’m having another bout of diverticulitis, and it’s put a crimp in my plans to take the D-O-G for a W-A-L-K every day. I’ve been taking antibiotics and hoping it’s not a serious problem, but knowing that it probably is and I probably need to go in to the doctor. I just really want to avoid the hospital. I’m pretty much done with those. Whether I need them or not.
Now it’s Thursday. I’m not sure what I’ll get up today. I’ve been toying with the idea of going to Ikea and getting some of the furniture we need. It’s only two hours. Seems like fun.
