Warning: Possible grumpiness ahead.
I'm tired of January, and everything that goes with it. The cold, the snow, the ice, the darkness, the inaugural hoopla. The fact that January is followed by February which is just more of the same....substitute valentine hoopla of inauguration stuff.
I'm tired of trying to live up to the resolutions I tried not to make. Eating properly and getting exercise. I have so blown both of those worthy goals and I'm too tired to care. I've been on a chocolate feeding frenzy for a week, and that just makes me more tired.
I'm tired of turning the heat up because I'm cold, and then turning the heat down because it's too warm. I'm tired of trying to get my bath water just the right temperature.
I'm tired of every single item of clothing that I own. Except this....
I'm tired of trying to time it right at the gas station.
I'm tired of going grocery shopping week in and week out. I'm tired of every single item of food in my cupboards.
I'm tired of thinking about the things I should do, but I'm too tired to do.
I'm tired of reading software manuals to figure out how to do simple things.
I'm tired of contemplating my 1040 form. I should just do the preliminary figuring, and get the bad news out of the way.
I'm tired of ignoring my to-do list. I've stopped listing anything on it. That helps.
Strangely enough, I'm not tired of knitting. Here's my plan for what's left of tonight.
- Rent a movie.
- Take a bath and read in the bathtub. (Spending, by Mary Gordon)
- Get a load of laundry started.
- Watch the movie and knit while watching
Hmm. This looks suspiciously like a to-do list.
