Quite literally I am dead tired. A has been staying over every night this week, and will continue to until Sunday night. I am getting in as much time with him as possible before he leaves, but this means that I am also getting up at 4am to drive him back to his place to get ready for work, then going back home to sleep for another hour before I have to get up again. Even multiple doses of coffee are not doing enough this morning to keep me awake and focused, and I think today will be a write-off work-wise. I would love nothing more than to head home for a couple hours and nap!
I’ve decided to spend the time apart being productive rather than moping around, and have found a dance studio close by that has drop-in classes. I’m super excited to start dancing again – it’s fun and I always feel amazing after – not just because of the endorphins from the workout but I have better body image when I dance consistently, and who doesn’t want to just naturally feel better about themselves?
Looks like Mr. Rasta is coming off my list.
He kept asking me when we were going to get together, when was he going to see me again? I finally asked him what he was looking for between us.
His answer? Soulmates.
And I ran.
Sorry, I just can’t do that right now. I’ve also started paring down the men in my life. It was becoming too exhausting trying to manage them all, and to be honest I happen to really like Mr. Smiley. Since he’s gone in a couple of months I figured I might as well spend as much time as possible with him because time is so limited.
Instead of men I am focusing more time on myself. I have taken up dancing again because I realized that I miss it. I spend about an hour each evening just drilling and dancing and stretching and it’s so relaxing when I’m done. I am also starting yoga as an addendum to the dance, though we’ll see how long that lasts – I just can’t really get into the meditative stuff, I need to be moving!
In case anyone is interested, here is what I’m currently using for the dance stuff:
