I was so excited this morning when I realized that there was no RHOA or any other Bravo shows tonight. It was like getting a snow day! I have been doing lots of manual labor the last few days deep cleaning my living room. Step one was finding my living room. I’ve been struggling a lot with anxiety and depression lately. My go to anxiety fix has been alcohol way too much lately. It helps in the moment but make the next day even worse. So it’s easy to just go too many days in a row drinking wine. Then, I found a better option. I’ve been taking CBD gummies and they have really helped. After about three days, I haven’t even had to take them anymore. They are kind of like having Xanax in your purse. Just knowing they are there is good enough.
Clean All The Things!
So step two in the sanity plan was cleaning up this house. I’ve focused on the living room where I have been scrubbing walls and mopping floors and painting my coffee table trunk, and cleaning the ceiling fan (ew) and scrubbing baseboards and cleaning windows clean and changing the air filters and … it’s been a lot. The reward was permission to trash the ugly grey carpet I bought last summer and getting a new upbeat one (just like the one I had before). I did that about an hour ago. I am too tired to roll it out and put the furniture back in place. So that will have to wait until tomorrow.
Just before I left to get the rug (and drop off 40 pounds of laundry at the fluff and fold) I heard the sad news about Kobe Bryant. Please use this link to comment on that. I’m not sure if it was the physical exhaustion, but that hit me harder than I would have thought. I overshare (as usual) to say that my plans for the night have changed.
I Need A Nap!
I was looking forward to watching the season finales for both The L Word: Generation Q and Work In Progress on Showtime. They are two of my favorite shows and I am going to save them until I am less exhausted. I don’t usually watch The Grammys, but I have adjusted my DVR so that I can watch tonight. I am quite sure I will fall asleep in the first hour. But, I bought snacks while I was out so I a going to pile up on the couch and learn about what kids today are listening to and eat things I won’t be able to eat in the near future. Pssst I am getting ready to start Lentil Season 2020 early, so cheat now before we get serious again, ladies and gents!
So, what are your plans for tonight? Feel free to discuss The Grammy’s in comments here if you like. Or use this as an open forum for whatever your plans are. Now, if you will excuse me, I’ve sort of thrown my back out, and my right ankle is swollen. I am going to lay my bones down. I’ll still be online for as long as I can stay awake!
Luann doesn’t know the difference between special ed and physical education? Apparently she was doing one of those paid fan video things. I think they should get a refund.
