Round and round

Hi, how y’all doing? I had a minor breakdown yesterday, felt all of a sudden old and out of place and quite unhappy with how things are for the time being. Instead of doing anything about it (although it´s quite hard to steer clear of the dark thoughts once they set in), I let myself collapse into a sea of tears, feeling sorry for myself instead of seeing all the good stuff I´ve got going on. And then I went to sleep at 10:30 pm, exhausted and fed up with myself.

Lazy bones

Today I woke up early to finish a couple of written translations that are due today, but I seem to do anything to postpone it. In fact, procrastinating is my middle name. These days have been wonderfully lazy, so sliding back into routine is no easy task. We´ve had movie marathons and binge eating (not food, but chips and sweets), napping from 8pm to 9pm and things unheard of outside Christmas break. Yesterday however I managed to read a couple of pages, after working for a bit and then giving the house a quick shine. A friend visited with her sweet baby and we had the greatest time bonding. Unfortunately I´m quite ambivalent about children since I´ve been longing for one for so long, so I never know how I will react, I either like them too much or I just couldn´t be bothered. But Isabella was the cutest little thing and so easy to get along with, I was sold!
