dark and stormy mood


I am agitated and utterly out of sorts today.  I have the peculiar underlying anxiety that I think maybe always comes up when storms are rolling in  (need more data to make sure this is fact).  My routine was severely disrupted this morning.  And while I can do fine with some routine upset, it really threw me off today.  Also I had long elaborate dreams about the apocalypse last night  That always puts me off my feed as well.  To so sum up: lost routine, storms a’comin’, bad bad dreams.  Okay, well now that I’ve written that down, it’s no wonder I’m barely functional today.  The question is, how do I set myself right?

My options are:

  • get out work to-do list and panic over it until I cry
  • paint my toenails and watch a movie
  • get back in PJs, back in bed and read until it’s time to get ready for work
  • pick around and find an unfinished craft project and finish it for the satisfaction of it
  • sit and stare

  1. I think that I will completely skip number one… not even an option. All the rest sound reasonable, but I am leaning toward options 2 and 3. This sounds like a day in which you really need to take care of yourself.

  2. I think 4 will make you feel the best.

  3. Yes. 100% 4 would make me feel best. I did 3 and it was alright. Then I worked. then I went drinking with my yoga teacher and talked about how much I love you, Rhi.
