Christmas is a now a couple of days away, we have house guests arriving tonight, and all I can think is “is it over yet?”
Yep, having a bah humbug attitude.
This is nothing new, because I have been out of sync with the holiday spirit all season. It was bad enough before my friend died on Saturday, but now all I feel like doing is crawling back into bed and hiding until the new year.
But I can’t. Damn me and my hyper-responsible self!
Tomorrow I have my friend’s funeral, and I am presently completely stumped as to what to say in my eulogy. I have about 6 sentences written and really need to focus and get busy to make it happen.
On top of which I did not go to the gym this morning. After staying up until 2 a.m. finishing a project for a 9 a.m. meeting/presentation, it was ridiculous to expect myself to get up 4:30 to exercise. I’ll go tonight. I know I don’t want to, but I have to or I might be a complete and utter slug until J returns next Thursday. I have ambitious plans that do not include skipping gym visits.
I am also taking a few days off of my mad work schedule. Everything that must be done was complete by 4 p.m. today, and I am essentially free until next Monday. Of course I’ll probably be reading emails and preparing for next week on Sunday, but tomorrow, Christmas day, and Saturday I plan to just enjoy the holiday and seeing our friends while they are here and exclusively ours.
But first: gym, eulogy. Probably not in that order, though.
