Silver Linings Playbook vs Fight club
I saw it today. It was the antidote to having a big verbal spat last night with my husband -over nothing- and then dreaming all night about fighting with him. He is projecting his own sh*! on me, and today he apologized. But I was exhausted and deflated.
After staring in to space for a while I said to myself----Self Care! Time to recharge my batteries. Retail therapy- $30 of little stuff from Dollar General (stuff like socks, pens, calendar, prunes :), and pretty storage boxes. A box full o' stuff. Then breakfast alone at Ihop ( simple and fit meal) and my own coffee pot which I drank almost the whole thing.
Then to this movie ( No 'Le Miz') for me. Bradley Cooper great. Jennifer Lawrence great. Movie overall pretty dang good. My husband is probably bipolar whereas I tend to just lapse in and out of different levels of depression. In our relationship, I tend to be the more centered one with inner resources and can pull myself out of a funk . At times this movie was like a prettied up version of my own life.
I'm a Geek for many things: Food, Pajamas, Coffee, Chocolate, Movies, Books, getting and being fit and healthy, 80's music, and the list goes on and on .....A nurse, a diabetic, I've lost over 130 lbs and have more to go . And I actually enjoy working out.
I chose the names of Ms. PJ Geek and PJ and Pounds because I have happy memories of childhood, coming in dirty and sweaty from playing in the yard. Then taking a bath, putting on a fresh nightgown and feeling all new again . I felt like a princess. Fresh renewal. .........
All names and situations will be changed to protect the innocent and the guilty, and so I can keep my job. While I am a nurse, I do not intend this to be a blog with specific directions or guidelines for healthcare. And.....though I have a college degree, that was a long time ago ya'll, and I don't remember proper punctuation or grammar.
