Just one more cup of tea...

...before I go collect my boy.

I am actually on vacation this week, but it feels about the same as any other working week. Part of me feels guilty for dropping him off, but I can get errands done faster if I don't have to bundle him in and out of the carseat. Good daycare is in demand. The waiting lists are long. To secure our spot, we pay whether he's there or not. So I'm taking advantage of this time. In fact, the cool cat and I actually went out to a movie on Monday. Our first theater movie since the Boo was born. We saw King Kong. It was gory in places. I had to look away. And I jumped on several occasions. And squirmed. And smiled. We had a good time.

I have a list. A very ambitious list. I wanted to get my life organized during this break. So I can feel more at peace. More calm. Less stress. But I've been blowing off the things on my list. I'm having such a hard time getting into the swing of things this year.

I went to JoAnn's today to get some tins for baked goodies. I appreciate the price reductions of 70% off all Christmas items. But they're busily putting out the Valentine's Day stock. I can't even say how deflating this feels to me, this pushing of the next commercial occasion. I want things to SLOW DOWN! I want to kick back, drink some tea, and read a book. And not worry about the bazillion things I think I need to do. I don't want to think of Valentine's Day. I don't want to be surrounded by pink and red fuzzy hearts quite yet.

Here's my new list.

Drink some tea.
Have some more tea.
Read a book.
Take a nap.

But not now. Now I have to go get my love bug. He needs some serious snuggling. Or rather, I do.
