SELF PORTRAIT THURSDAY!
Hey there. It’s Thursday! I’m posting later than I’d like, but it’s been pretty busy at the salon. Plus, I had some other writing to do for the salon. And you know what, it’s actually hard to write at the salon because the phone rings a lot. Or I am called to do something. My train of thought gets broken up.
So, the past week I’ve been in worry mode about getting everything in order for the Provincetown show. Like to the point where I wake up at 4:30AM and can’t go back to sleep—I know I’m awake when my toes start to wiggle—and I’m just thinking “Well, how am I going to do this…?” and “How am I supposed to pay for that…?” The logistics of everything have been getting to me, so I’ve been getting out of bed, taking my pillows to the living room, putting on anything random on Netflix, taking a couple hits off the bowl—just bought some White Widow!—and forcing myself to watch and chill. Eventually I fade back to sleep. You know, when it’s time to wake up and get ready for work.
But I woke up this morning and decided to get into solution mode and restructure my thoughts so that I’m not going crazy. And the day’s been great.
Ben’s birthday was this past weekend, and it was so fun! We partied really hard on Friday night… Didn’t get to bed til almost 5AM. (I never do that. I always get sleepy around 11PM.) We had friends in town, too. Our good friend Meredith, who actually introduced us way back in the day one snowy morning at Vassar, was in town. And these guys Aaron and John, who are in this rad band from Portland called Nurses, were in town recording their new album. So, there was good company and lots of laughs.
It was a very spendy, decadent weekend that I was happy to have. And that I was happy to have over. My body needs to recuperate. I’m 30!
