Yesterday I needed a “normal” day. One without excessive stress. Or deadlines. Or to-do lists. A day to feel normal (Is there such a thing these days?). For a while I was stumped. Nothing I do these days is normal. Hoping that some holiday cheer would go a long way we put up the tree and a few (very few) decorations. We turned on holiday tunes and hummed, sashayed and belted out a few. I made a pot of soup and that seemed to work.
As I’ve adjusted to the changes throughout the year, all activities I do to soothe myself are no longer practical. Yesterday even my Starbucks was closed. Yes that made me cranky. They reopened with limited hours and services today. I’m not sure what’s going on but it’s 2020 so it’s “anything can happen year.” (Does anyone remember that from the Mickey Mouse Club? Do you remember which day of the week it was?)
Here’s hoping you have an eventless week and find some cheer! In the meantime, empty boxes are beckoning me!
