Preface: Overall I've been feeling pretty good about life lately... like I might actually be finding the "new normal" and being ok with it.
So the heat was apparently getting to me more than I realized. I got home Saturday morning from a massage, got an ice pack for my ankle, gchatted with drwex
, talked to the Nurseline about my ankle and then took a nap...or more accurately, went back to sleep. It was 3:30pm when I came back to consciousness. I was kind of astounded, but feeling better than I had in 2 days when I woke up.
I got up and took skreeky
up on her offer for use of the pool. It was an absolutely lovely 82 degrees and I managed to float, tread water, swim and laze about in it for almost an hour. S and I chatted for a bit and another friend with his 12ish yo daughter joined us for a while. Just the cool down, relaxed kind of fun I needed prior to big social event.
Then it was off to a wonderfully social, fun evening at the Stack. There were fabulous frozen drinks thanks to the aforementioned skreeky
. Lots of just chillin' with peeps, catching up, relaxing and a little Listening. As always mangosteen
were awesome hosts!
The summer like mornings of warm air have been kind of enjoyable... it hasn't been till the late afternoon/evening heat that I was getting really downtrodden. This morning was no different as I headed north to see my Mom for the the day. The ride North was relaxing and energizing as I had some really rockin' music on the radio for most of the trip. And then it was a really good visit until the last half hour when she suddenly had a whole bunch of questions about Aries and Aries and I as a couple. Still it really wasn't until I got caught in traffic on the way home( that the mood crash hit... )
So now I am home, taking a break from working on the project for the UK, writing this out to look at it rationally and really wishing all the voices in my head would just shut the f*** up.
