Please note: I wrote this Thursday. Not sure when it will post; I get confused with drafts...
Some days start off badly. Some days end badly. Some days have rough patches in between. Yesterday was no exception. Neither was today.
Last night, I was poking around, not doing much, and realized (too late) that it was time for my evening class. So after changing clothes and grabbing my books, I huffed and puffed to my car. Drove to school, parked, huffed and puffed up two flights of stairs, and continued huffing and puffing for five minutes while sitting in class. I can't handle this. Two flights of stairs! I couldn't believe how winded I was (and how long I stayed in that wretched state). Something needs to be done about this. Like petitioning to get the class moved to the first floor. Who made that second floor decision, anyway? Some people really abuse their power.
Then this morning, I woke up late (on purpose and on accident. You see, I knew I wasn't going to shower (layoff, okay? It's not good for my hair to wash it everyday.) but then I got up later than I expected. Like 7:10 later...) and after running around getting ready, I threw on my heels and was out the door. Who knew that extremly cold evenings = the necessity to scrape the car = falling ONTO the car while scraping? And since I'm not tall enough to reach my entire windshield flat-footed, the snow crept into the back of my heels while I was standing on my tip-toes. It was nuts. And very cold.
I need to get a good unwinding strategy. Like being on time. Unfortunately, that's not too helpful in my case. I mean, I can try for sure, but it's not my norm, and it's hard, and sometimes hard things are not what you need for unwinding. Maybe I could just hire someone to have a glass of chilled white wine ready for me when I get home, or hot cocoa with schnapps, like how I grew up (I mean, grew up after I was 21. duh.) on cold days. Like the previously mentioned day. Someday the snow will melt, and it will be warm enough to go for jogs outside. If only I can convince myself to do that.
Motivation. Where are you? Will you find a way for me to unwind?
