And so begins the down-swing. The mean reds showed up yesterday morning and they haven’t left yet. Here’s the only thing I managed to write yesterday.
So it finally happened. Three days into funemployment I’m sitting on my couch at 2:30 pantless, eating ice cream, and watching Grace and Frankie. The sads have arrived.
The kitchen is dirty. I haven’t brushed my teeth. I didn’t get out of bed till eleven. I need to repaint my office and various pieces of furniture. I’m daydreaming about being at a place where people need me. I’m obsessively checking my email hoping someone needs me.
No one needs me. My dogs kind of need me, but I just let them out, so I’ve probably got like, another 12 clear hours of not being needed.
And I slept till noon today. In my husband’s words, “Winter is coming.”
It means I’m making my way towards a down couple of days. I struggle sharing this, not because it’s embarrassing (which it is) but because I really hate bringing the vibe down. I would much prefer to keep things light and funny, but it would be dishonest. And the point of funemployment is to be honest. And feel better.
So here’s some things I’ve been doing that make me feel better. I hope they make you feel good too.
Dancing. To absolutely no music.
Eating ice cream
Too much ice cream
I also watched the entire first season of Grace and Frankie
Kissed my dogs 7,000,000,000 times
And complained about how terrible my life is (is isn’t)
But who knows how I’ll feel tomorrow. I’ll just keep drinking coffee and watching netflix till then.
LOLZ. Not at all what I look like drinking coffee.
