After a week like this one, I sometimes think that if there was a therapist on call at a drug store, I would gladly buy an hour and expel all the stuff that's stuck on a continuous loop in my brain. It's been one of those weeks where there's just so much to do, and not nearly enough waking hours to accomplish them all. And there are so many ideas and projects (finished and unfinished... and unstarted) that keep rolling around in my brain like movie film that keeps going around and around on the reel. And I don't want to burden Joe or a good friend (even though I know they would listen) with all these thoughts, because it would take forever and the half finished thoughts and seemingly neurotic concerns might make them go mad as well. No one needs that, right?
Not that it's been a bad week, it's actually been a good one, but I am constantly tormented by the myriad of things that need to get done and aren't. I'm just one person.
So what's a girl to do when there's not a therapist on call? Go to the salon instead and get her white roots covered....and maybe pick up a cup of coffee on the way. And a muffin. Or cupcake. (This is what my mind has been doing all week!) At 32, I have much more white hair than I imagined I would, and it's yet another constant battle in need of a win.
And for those of you who didn't get in on the Valentine Kits, I may have a couple extra after the orders go out on Monday. You can e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. I have an inkling that I'm going to get dozens more e-mails than there are kits, so if you don't hear back from me, that just means that they are gone. It's $52 (plus 4.95 shipping), and the details can be found here.
(I just had an epiphany... maybe if I had made time to knit this week, I wouldn't feels so overwhelmed. Duh.)
