My skin is rebelling against the stress of the week, emails are piling up, I’m too tired to sleep, I’m thirsty, I somehow have to design two book covers from scratch as well as make revisions to three more before tomorrow at noon, the cuticle on my left thumb is sore, I ate too much salt today, I look tired, the weather is weird and humid and warm and un-fall-like suddenly, the garden is feeling neglected, I’ve accomplished nothing tonight, and I want to go to bed and not get up until November.
By next week things will be much better, I’m sure. On Saturday we’re making a day trip to Philadelphia, and Sunday will be for buying winter clothes and doing a little more demolition in the bathroom. And then on Monday I’ll get up for work and try not to worry about everything so much. And then my skin will be happy, and so will I.
p.s. Watching the incredible progress they’re making over at Day at a Glance is both inspiring me (it’s only taken them a month to get that far!) and bringing me down (we bought this house a year and a half ago!) at the same time. I really need to take a week off and refocus.
