Early this morning I dropped my man off at the train station.
It felt unreal driving away. For two years we've spent every day together.
We spent our last night together with lots of tea in front of a fire,
but now the house is cold and empty. I'm sitting in bed surrounded by
comfort foods like chicken and chips, beer and chocolate cake.
Buffy is on the dvd-player and I'm stealing cuddles from the kitties.
After I had dropped off my Cinnamon man I went home and did myself up
to go and have my passport renewed. Makeup didn't really help.
I look how I feel - like crap. Bloated, flaky skin, black rings under my eyes
- all courtesy to pain and PMS. The only thing in my life now is keeping busy
until I see my baby again. So, in the coming three weeks I will:
1. Give the house a good spring cleaning.
There are floors and windows to be cleaned, a kitchen that could use
a good scrub down, curtains to be washed and lots of stuff to organize.
2. Prepare for my hop to the States.
I have to pick up my renewed passport and apply for Travel
Authorization to the States, somehow intelligently pack a carry-on bag
for a weekend of unpredictable Pacific coast spring weather, leave kitty-care
instructions with my mom and pick up my prescription at the pharmacy.
3. Lose the weight I have put on through all the emotional eating
and drinking done in the last two months (...starting tomorrow... :)).
For me, losing weight is a long term plan without diets or fads.
I will just be eating less and cutting back on alcohol.
I know that my posts this last month have not been the usual.
There haven't been nearly as many pictures, and obviously there's
been a new and recurring theme. But I promise that I will get back to
posting more about little projects and the like very soon.
