Why do we consider jumpsuits “effortless?” Because they’re one and done? No thinking involved? Same with a dress. Dresses are effortless. Jumpsuits are anything but (sometimes I wish they had snaps at the crotch like bodysuits…) . They’re still amazing though.
Today, it’s cloudy and not 100 degrees, so I feel like I can wear this and be comfortable. Anyway, I’m going to be spending most of the afternoon at the salon for cut & color (I’m getting REALLY tired of pulling it back all the time). And anyway, I have no energy to think about what I’m wearing. I’ve been a great big panicky mess the last few days, but I’m feeling much better now after my Pure Barre platform class this morning; I’m too worn out and feel good after the exercise to worry much.
It’s the stress hormones. And yes, I’m still meditating in the mornings, but the last couple of mornings, I’ve stopped early because I just can’t. And I’m trying so hard not to turn to drinking LOL. You know that light, slightly happy feeling you get after a drink or a glass of wine. Yeah. I love that, but I already know I have an addictive personality, so if I start having a drink every evening, it’s a slippery slope.
The reason for the stress? Dagny. And work. My sister had surgery earlier this week also, and is now waiting on results of a biopsy.
Dagny is on the prozac now, but with the constant thunderstorms and fireworks every night for the last week, she’s still having a very hard time. She ate well at first and then tapered off so she wasn’t eating much again. She’s spent nearly every night in the closet, and most of the days as well. Right now, she’s actually lying here next to me on the couch in my office because she came down to try to eat her food that’s been sitting out since this morning. That makes me very happy. (she’s hyper alert, and won’t lay her head down and relax, but still…she’s not in the closet!)
It’s just hit me really hard the last couple of days and I’ve had a hard time getting “over” it. I’ve felt rather shaky and on edge a lot. And work…you know when you’re really really really excited about something, and then it launches, or whatever, and then you’re like. Hmm…That’s it? (it’s the same thing that happens to me when I order things online…you know, that high, and then reality when it arrives and is NOT life -changing?).
Work is good. Slowre is REALLY good. But I’m having too many highs and lows lately and need to try and temper them a bit. Next week is family vacation to Atlanta, which I’m looking forward to – we’ve rented a house by a lake, just an hour or so away for just a couple of nights. Should be relaxing.
How was your fourth? Are you taking it easy this week, or back to work full force?
