Waking Up

It's weird sometimes.
I needed this past weekend more than I thought.  It was the week with my Friday off and it was full of appointments, as usual.  That's ok, because they needed to be done.  Better than taking sick time off from work to do things like get my hair colored, you know?  After my appointments, I drove down to San Diego to visit my friend, Gig.  He and I visited for hours and then we went out for Chinese food at Hong Kong restaurant in Hillcrest.  YUM!  We stopped in at the American Apparel store and picked out some underwear for my son (long story on that one, but saved for another time) and I got some fun things for me:  lacy socks and thigh-high socks.  Oh yeah, those babies are warm!  Then back to Gig's for more chit-chat and then a smooth drive home in the rain.
Saturday didn't start out so good:  migraine.  Shit.  I held off with the medication as long as I could (why do I do that?!) and then took it and went to bed.  Slept for 3 hours.  Got up and tried to craft, but couldn't concentrate so watched tv.  Sleepy and headachy again at 4, so went back to bed and slept again for 5 hours.  Woke up and felt great!  Rejuvenated.  Wow.  I knitted and crafted for hours and hours.  Finally went to bed at 6am and woke again at 9:30am ready to take on Sunday.
Sunday was spent mostly in my head.  As I went through my chores and organized my yarn stash, I just let the thoughts fly in and out of my head.  I didn't try to solve anything, I just listened.  Let them flow.  It's weird to do that, I think.  Not trying to solve anything, but just letting the chatter carry on in there.  Just hearing my head. 
I'm missing my friends these days.  The ones I've kept at a distance these past few months.  Time to reconnect and integrate myself back into parts of my old life.  What's that saying:  When it's dark enough, you can see the stars.  Something like that.  Well, it's plenty dark enough.  I'm ready for some stargazing.


  1. I haven't heard that quote before but it's a keeper.

    Sorry to hear about your migraine - I do that too, try to hold it off with meds and end up in bed anyways. Why don't we just succumb???

    Glad you had a nice time with Gig - you deserve it.

  2. good for you chica! follow your heart!
