I believe I’ve begun this new year feeling about as fresh as an old sock. I have so much stuff going on with Lex Valentine and Winterheart Design and at work that instead of being energized by the bright shiny new year we have…I’m just tired. I’m starting to wonder if maybe I should use a little of that stockpile of vacation hours that I have. I can’t afford to go anywhere but just the idea of not getting up at the ass crack of dawn every day is appealing. The simple joy of sleeping in an extra hour is so nice. I did that a couple of times over the holidays and I can’t tell you how wonderful it made me feel. I won’t tell you how crappy my back felt from my POS bed though.
I long for the ability to lie in bed and read books on my Nook for hours upon end. That would be my idea of retirement. I know I’m not ever gonna be able to retire and cruise the Mediterranean on a mega yacht while I write my books on a state of the art laptop. But to just sleep in or lie in bed reading all afternoon seems like a dream.
Oh, those luscious dreams. The bad thing about them is that 1) you wake up and 2) all that lying around means my brain would be dreaming up more and more plots and I’d never be able to relax after all.
I’ve been told that the tired I feel and the apathy come from the big M. Not Men. Menopause. Gross topic if you ask me. But supposedly I’m wiped out because of the M, not because of other stuff. I don’t really care what/who is doing this to me. I just want it to stop. So I ponder taking more than a day or two off work and wonder if it will help at all.
I do know that a Marcus does wonders for me and like every Monday here on this blog, I have a Marcus photo!
He looks like he’s dressed for the weather here. No matter whether he’s dressed or undressed, Marcus is always hot!
I’m headed off to the office now. Gotta a lotta work to do this week working on the end of the year and end of December stuff. Even old socks have their place in the universe! Have a great Monday and if you’re in the southland, try to stay dry!
