Musings from the Laundromat – staying up late & sharing too much edition.
Didn’t see my laundry lady last week as I was house sitting – but it’s odd because I did see her in a shop just before that weekend.
She came over and chatted and her parting words were. “See you on Sunday!”
I proceeded to fret throughout that weekend because I hadn’t remembered to tell her that she wouldn’t.
Silly isn’t it? But I felt like I’d missed an appointment and hadn’t bothered to officially cancel it.
Here I am this week, so all is righted.
She HAD noticed however. “Yeah, I made your coffee and didn’t see you.” She said.
Stayed up super late Friday – I think, just because I could you know?
I get so excited about Friday, even though I don’t ever GO anywhere.
Played an online game I like for hours – did very well so proceeded to go into random rooms and gift those less fortunate with most of my spoils.
Wrote a couple of posts here that I’ve since deleted – too raw. Too much info. (I’m not kidding when I say my censor button is missing.)
Then I watched a really weird movie on Netflix, then another and another … before I knew it it was early morning! I felt so naughty.
Then I remembered I’m 46 years old and no one actually cares if I stay up all night anymore. Well, my BODY cared. I slept in until 11 a.m. Feeling like I hadn’t slept at all.
Needless to say, the house didn’t clean itself yesterday, and it won’t today either, but I shall. I just can’t DO all nighters anymore! I’m getting too old for that crap.
Good thing I was home and not at some bonkers club. Sorry, I’m chortling right now having read back that last sentence. I don’t ‘outside’ and I don’t ‘people’ so the odds of that club scenario borders on the absurd.
My crowd consists of the ‘Snow Birds’ that I see every year at this time at the laundromat, my Glaucoma Man (who wasn’t there today) and the laundry lady.
My happy comes in the form of my son and dog and home. And of course my friends and family who I REALLY need to see face to face more.
I dream (literally) of being amongst people and finding love. Had the oddest dream last night of another faceless soul who loved me.
They’ll remain there – in my sleep. Because my heart is still mending and besides, what if they want me to actually leave my house?!! God forbid.
