Day 13: What are you excited about?
I haven’t slept in over 24 hours, so what I’m most excited about is the prospect of sleep. I have work tomorrow, and I need it, so I pulled out all the stops: piles of my favorite cuddliest blankets, valerian tea with chamomile and orange honey, super comfy lounge pants, and a super chill feel-good movie to wind down the night. I don’t trust myself to work on projects tonight, because I’ve already had to redo several rows of a crochet project sleepy-me messed up, but I’ve got several projects lined up that I’m going to fuss over the planning stages of during my movie, because I am incapable of sitting completely still.
But it’s still a little early, unless I want to watch the sunrise again, so I’ve cut up an apple and thrown it in a pot of water on the stove with some cinnamon sticks to make my house smell like pie while I settle into my movie night.
I’m going to forgive myself for all the things I’m not doing that I feel like I should be doing, like all the pictures from the places I decided not to go tonight, and know that tomorrow I will be better for the decision to slow down tonight.
