Random Tuesday – TV complaints, can’t think, hot wrestler
Maybe this is totally insane of me but I am actually going to miss the craziness of summer activities. I don’t have to wash bathing suits and towels all the time or be ready with chores to provide cash for the boys for snowcone day at camp. I will miss our later bedtimes – even though I’m usually SO ready for them to sleep, you know? – and the feeling of summer evenings. It’s been hot and still and a deluge of rain has come our way but I am STILL feeling a sense of loss at the upcoming school year beginning.
SO, when we re-signed up for DirecTV (I mentioned that; new thing with Costco so we switched it to my name and got a deal) I picked the next package up from the one we had – which is actually quiet different since it had been a while since we got the service – and it’s because it had Vh1Classic. Granted, I don’t watch a ton of TV but I like how they played cool documentaries, metal videos, and old episodes of Pop-up Video. Well, about a week ago I see that they have done away with Vh1Classic and made it MtvClassic, which plays endless episodes of the Real World and blocks of old videos that have no rhyme or reason. They don’t have 80s hour or 90s hour or metal anything. It’s just a chunk of old videos, of which there are a myriad number so you never know what you’re in for. I am a wee bit ticked about this change.
I’ve been trying to eat more slowly. At work, I find I put off eating lunch if I am busy and then when I finally get food, I’m so hungry that I literally inhale my meal. I never feel good afterwards so I have got to amend this behaviour.
All these dark chocolate covered raisins aren’t helping but I cannot seem to stop eating them!
I’ve been in quite the emotional slump lately. I don’t want to DO anything or talk to anyone and I am not motivated whatsoever. I feel very negative about, well, everything. I’m not one to get overly thoughtful about this sort of thing but I admit, I’m a bit worried about this slump. I shouldn’t be; I’m sure that this too shall pass. In the meantime, I must weather the storm.
Oh Sethy, you are a salve on my chaotic and overwhelming life.
Admittedly, I feel a whole lot better today (the above bullet was definitely written on Monday!) Last night we went to Momo’s – with just one kid! – and had beer and pizza. As soon as Dakota went to bed, I laid in my own bed and watched wrestling. It was exceedingly restorative for me to simply unplug. I even got to work early today and I feel ready to work, unlike yesterday where my brain just would not come online!
