Didja ever have a day where all you wanted to do was lie around and eat comfort food?
I never have those days - except today. That's how I felt today.
I couldn't even drag my butt out to martial arts tonight, which probably would have made me feel better. I ran this morning, but only a mile.
I'm craving pasta with lots of cheese. An English muffin with peanut butter and jelly. Something rich and gooey and full of fat and carbs.
And sleep. I want to sleep for a week.
When I realized today was the notorious Blue Monday, I felt a little bit better. At least I'm supposed to be feeling this way. I guess. I had originally planned to host a fancy dress-up / cheer-up party for Blue Monday this year, but those plans never materialized. Instead I wound up in the grocery store, comparing unit prices on bulk toilet paper. (I'm happy to report that we won't have to buy toilet paper again until Spring.)
What I really need is some true Down Time. It would be nice to spend some time just reading, watching a movie (without multitasking), continuing to teach myself to crochet, or (gasp) checking out my NaNoWriMo novel - which is sitting patiently on my hard drive waiting to be read and edited. I haven't even peeked at it. The possibility that I will read it and absolutely hate it is just too, too real at this point. This way, I can at least allow it to be good in my fantasies.
Sigh. I think I'm going to go make that English muffin with peanut butter and jelly. And maybe put in a movie.
And totally veg until bedtime.
Taking comfort in the knowledge that Blue Monday is almost over.
