i want to wrap the weekend around me like a blanket. oh, sweet lovely weekend!
tonight, i hope to watch a movie in my pajamas, then work on my goals for the next 6 months. if i'm feeling extra geeky, i'll tackle the next 5 and 10 years as well. maybe i'll even make charts. a magical friday night. every girl's dream.
tomorrow, i'm scheduled for some involuntary human interaction (voluntarily volunteering at the museum again). in the evening, elliot and i will doll ourselves up and head to my work holiday party. we go because we want to win a trip to jamaica or a DVD player. (they give away stuff.)(it's their way of making you want to go.)(it works.)
and because i know you'd want to know, i also plan on scrubbing and washing and rearranging and organizing every corner of my apartment this weekend. i need the things outside my head to be less complicated. (do you sense that i'm grasping for some small feeling of control?)
one of the harder things about life is the maintenance part. it doesn't matter how many times you clean or cook or wash or pay your bills on time--you have to do it all again. it's never done.
just writing about this makes me want to take a nap.
