It’s just been that kind of week, I guess. Do you have have one of those? Where you just don’t feel like doing anything at all? That’s been my week. Sure, I’ve gotten up like I was supposed to, mostly, and written the things and even got dressed a couple of times, but I just don’t feel like cleaning or writing or anything, really. I know it’s bad. I know I should make myself get up and run the vacuum or clean the sink or at least try and sort through the pile of mail that’s accumulated on the end of the table, but it all just sounds like so much work right now and I could be sitting in my comfy chair, wrapped up in my warm blanket.
Maybe I should do some yoga today. I haven’t done any yoga in a long time and I feel like it was good for my energy levels. I would also like to make a smoothie for breakfast as I haven’t made one all week… But we don’t have any milk. That would be why. Huh. Can you make a smoothie without milk? I guess it’d just be a really thick smoothie. I don’t think I’d be a fan of that. I had trouble drinking the last one I made due to not enough milk so no milk sounds like it’d be really bad. For drinking, that is. It’d probably still taste good, it’d just be difficult to drink. Anyway, so maybe not a smoothie, but I do have plenty of cereal to eat. I bought some because it was pumpkin and had a puffin on it and puffins are kind of an in joke between me and my husband and I thought it was great. It doesn’t taste as good as I thought it would, though… and we still don’t have any milk, so I can’t have a bowl of cereal either. I’m out of ideas.
Maybe today I’ll read like crazy and finish one of the many books I want to read. That’s probably not going to happen, since I’m like the slowest reader ever. I don’t understand fast reading, I just don’t get how people do it. Then again, I’m also mildly ADD and can’t focus on a single thing for too long without getting distracted by something. Sometimes it’s a word in the book that I find myself mulling over while staring into space. Sometimes I see something over or around the book and I think about that for a while, or perhaps the book triggers a thought about something else entirely and my mind bunny-trails out of control. One way or another, my reading will be interrupted at least three times for every five minutes I read. It makes for some slow going. But, I am determined to actually get through Pride and Prejudice this time, one way or another. I switched from reading my physical book to reading it on my Kindle last night due to a random power outage. We don’t quite have enough candles to read by and with my phone under 30% battery, I felt it better to use something with a better charge and it’s own light source. I’ll probably continue reading on my Kindle today as it happens to be beside me and my book is in my purse. That feels a little wrong, especially for reading Austen, but I am drawn to convenience and I don’t have to get up and dig for my Kindle today. I feel better about it since I don’t have a bookmark in my book anyway, so it won’t have to be moved.
I’ve spent the last week catching up on ‘Bones’ on Netflix. I always wait for the new season to come out on Netflix to watch it because I can’t keep up on the internet. The whole searching sketchy sites to find a good streaming video of the episode makes me much more uncomfortable than it used to. So it’s on the networks website or Netflix or not at all, most of the time. So I binge watched season 10 of ‘Bones’ while my Twirly catches up with her husband and texts me nonstop in the evenings. Which then makes me think I should go back and watch all the episodes again so I remember better what she’s talking about, but then I think about everything they’ve come through and I don’t know if I can handle it all again. But, that’s always an option, I guess. On the long list of things that I need to watch.
So today I’ll do… something. Hopefully. There are a lot of lazy day things that I could do. But maybe, by some twist of fate, I’ll actually get up and do things for a change. Maybe I’ll find myself suddenly motivated to clean the bathroom or switch out my winter and summer wardrobe. Who knows? Anything is possible right?
