“Maybe I should do laundry?”
“Maybe I should make some soup?”
“How about going for a walk?”
Been there – did it – thank goodness – first thing this morning.
“Why no energy?”
I don’t know. Could it be a mental hang-over from the emotional roller-coaster of this past week?
“Don’t waste the day, Stacey!”
I’m trying to beat the next level on Candy Crush! How can that be wasteful?
“Get up and get going!”
Nah— I’m tired.
“You like cooking!”
Not today. I’m just tired. I get up. I go back to bed. I get up again. Nothing interests me. I go back to bed.
“You are getting old!”
Yup. But not today – I don’t have the energy to grow old.
“Are you upset?”
Nope. But if you pushed it – I’d cry. It’s just that kind of day. It’s a lazy day. It’s a dull day. Unless your son is getting married, it’s a dull day. But I don’t mind a dull day – every once in a while. I need some down time. I was busy this week. A fire, a movie, some popcorn maybe?
Get out of my head! Leave me alone. I just want to “be” today. Totally selfish. Totally quiet. Ever get that way?
“Yeah – I do.”
So – since it is a do nothing kind of day — I think I’ll do just that.
For today – maybe for just now.
