I forced myself to get off the couch and stop wallowing, put on some makeup, and go to Target. I bought earrings. Then I went grocery shopping and bought something healthy for dinner, and marshmallows for later. I heart marshmallows.
I still feel like the world's hugest bag of ass, but at least I'm a bag of ass that's not wallowing.
I also called and scheduled a hair appointment for Monday since I don't have school. Nothing will make you feel better than spending $200 on your hair. But, it has to look good. Wanna know why?
Because in only 13 short days it is MY BIRTHDAY! That's right people, start shopping now because I want presents and they better be good. I thought about trying to copy Sherry's idea about having a virtual birthday party -- after all, I attended hers (of course, you won't know which one is me, but trust me, I'm in there) -- but, I just don't think I have the energy or necessary computer skills. Maybe we'll just have a comment only birthday party that day or something. I'm not sure what I'll do in real life to mark the occasion, last year I had a very fun low-key party so maybe I'll do that again. No matter what, I'll have good hair and that counts for something I guess. I can't face thirty-one and gray hair all at the same time. I just can't.
Tomorrow I'm going back to the gym, I've taken a few days off which I know is contributing to my melancholy-ness. I only gained about 2 pounds over the whole holiday season, which isn't bad actually, but I definitely want to start moving back in the right direction before it gets out of hand...I've worked too hard to come this far to have a boredom induced backslide. Plus, it's good for my mental health. I'm also going to try to finish up some of the organizational projects I've started around the house. I'm really happy with my progress thus far because it is antithetical to my nature to organize ANYTHING, but there is still a long way to go. Projects. They're good for my mental health too.
