I admit I feel a little guilty because while I'm thankful for my job and that I get to work at home and don't have to sit in rush hour traffic 2-3 hours a day(like I used to), I still get burned out and fed up with it sometimes. Today , I was so over it, antsy and burned out with working that by 5:20 I had shut the computer down , was dressed with my purse in hand, and standing over my husband saying "I need a margarita!" He was sitting in his underwear with our dog in his lap playing an X-box game. But he saw my wild eyes and said "Okay".
Shock! He is not spontaneous.....at all. Well, I am not a big drinker.... at all. But I knew that going to some bar and grill and hearing loud , noisy people and background music and seeing baseball on the tv along with some Cuervo was going to mellow me out. And where we were going has 110 calorie Skinny Margaritas. I can count on one hand the number of times we have done this in our 16 years together. Never enough.
We ate about a third of the chips and salsa they brought, split an order of chicken fajitas, and had our one drink and a lot of water and went home. My mood is lighter and now I''m getting the chores done that needed to be done that I just couldn't face. It's like the steam blew out of the kettle and I'm lighter. And I didn't have to eat a bunch of crap or vegetate on the sofa to get this way. I'll pay for the salt on the rim of the glass and in the chips with some water retention, but I don't care.
I'm looking forward to the weekend, water aerobics class and Titanic in 3D on Saturday, and sleeping and reading to my hearts content.
Hope all of you have something fun planned too.
