no games for me

Today was monthly book club. 

This time, not only did I NOT read the book, I didn’t go.  Not because I didn’t want to, but because I just couldn’t get there.  At first because I didn’t have a ride—I let my daughter take my car and my husband wasn’t home yet—but later it was more about not having the energy. 

This is something I need to change, and fast.

I don’t know why I have been so completely drained lately.  But what I fear is that it may be all in my head. 

Have I simply convinced myself that this is all there is?

Nah, that can’t be it.

I simply wore myself out today.  I was up and down a ladder, caulking the crown moulding Mike installed over the cabinets.  It turned out fabulous, and now it just needs a coat of paint.  The kitchen is almost where I want it to be…and I am very happy about that!

The weather is getting nice enough for us to plan a trip to the mountains pretty soon, and I would really like to have all of our “at home” projects finished first.  I’m ready for a little rest and relaxation…and not the kind you get vacuuming and doing the dishes.

As for now, I still have a lot to do.  And right after I finish, well…I don’t know what I’ll do then.  Maybe something  I haven’t done in a long time.

Until the next time…I’ll be planning a girl’s night out!
