‘Da funk is here. I wasn’t sure if it was just my stressful week at work or the change in weather, but I can feel my feet firmly planted in the funk – tired, lethargic, no desire to do anything but sit in comfy clothes and plant myself on the couch. We managed to go to dinner last night, but the large group sitting behind me was loud and annoying, and for the first time in a long time I felt just a hint of anxiety. I fought it off, ate what I could, and was thrilled when we finally left. Even our regular trip to Border’s wasn’t as much fun as it usually is. Patrick and I start at the bargain section and then go our separate ways in the store, meeting up later in the evening to look through the books we’ve picked up along the way. I browsed the literature section and then the cookbooks, but my heart just wasn’t completely in it (although we are going back tonight to use our 20% off coupon for a book called “Big Fat Cookies”). I sat on the leather couch fighting off sleep while Patrick browsed the history section. Then it was home – on the couch in my jammies watching some baseball.
Patrick wants to go to Galena today. I said I didn’t want to, but am wondering if I should make the effort to go. Maybe I can force myself out of this before it gets too bad. It’s not a long drive, and maybe the cool, fall air will do me some good.
