Yesterday was a “day off” for me.
I woke up at 7 so I could get to a doctor’s appointment. Drove an hour to get there, talked to my doctor for about 5 minutes, then filled out some paperwork.
Next, I dropped by work to pick up my paycheck, killed some time working on a freelance project at a really fabulous coffee shop, then went to a meeting with some lovely creative ladies.
After my meeting I dropped by Frances, this amazing boutique in downtown Phoenix, to buy some Christmas presents. I immediately rushed to a LATE lunch with a friend of mine (does 3:00 count as lunch or dinner?) which was wonderful. We chatted for a few hours, saw a rainbow, and swore to see each other again before Christmas. I pulled out my camera that I had been dragging around with me all day so I could snap a photo of the rainbow but there was no battery in it. I’m losing my mind…
After my lunch, I came home, reheated some dinner from last night, and worked more on a freelance project. I spent the next few hours wrapping presents and watching It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia and laughing wayyy harder than anyone else in the room. When I started nodding off on the couch, I relocated to my room and started cleaning up a bit (seriously, it’s a disaster). I took a seat on my bed for a few minutes then woke up at 8:00 this morning with my TV still on and realized I somehow checked my texts at 1:00 in the morning but have absolutely NO recollection of doing so.
Most of my days have looked like this recently. I’ve been running from work to freelancing projects to Christmas shopping to cleaning to helping my mom get ready for parties and to be honest, I am completely exhausted. I absolutely love my job and freelancing has been an exciting new challenge but my whole body is tired. This whole “growing up” thing is a little bit overwhelming. I made a decision that I’m not going to post garbage content on the blog just so I don’t feel guilty about not being around here. You guys are wonderful and I want to give you only the best so for the time being, my posts will be much less frequent but (hopefully!) much better :).
I hope you’re all having a beautiful holiday season. My heart goes out to all of the tragedies that have struck around the world in the past week. Seems like we’ve been having some tough times.
