As per Molly's rules, Sinful Sunday is all about the image. I was on a relaxing vacation in a tropical setting a little over a week ago. Sitting still and allowing myself to just "be". I've always found it difficult to just turn off my mind; I'm constantly thinking. I think that is one of the reasons why I feel compelled to write. I need to get all of the words and jumble out of my head to make sense of it and experience some sense of quiet.
Since it is a holiday weekend, I started out thinking I would accomplish a lot of chores that I had been neglecting: tend to the overgrown garden, wash the deck, catch up on work, etc. But then, Friday at work, a lot of crap hit the fan that I was pulled into the chaos to make sense of. And I just began to feel overwhelmed once again. I started out keeping to my plan for chores Saturday and set out for Lowes to begin. But once I walked in, I was immediately greeted by happy couples. It was then that I realized once again that I am tired. I am tired of maintaining a house alone. Especially when that was not the original intention. So, I walked out, nothing bought. I came home. And decided to breathe. And let things hang out for a bit.
Maybe this feeling will pass soon. I certainly hope so.
