I'm a closet cat person. I know, don't tell Gatsby. I love him too--especially his feline tendencies. But, since I already have the dog and the chinchilla, I'm not so much allowed to invite a cat into the mix. So, when my friend goes out of town, I jump at the chance to kitten-sit. That's how I'm spending this week.
Friend lives downtown, so this week is as near to a vacation as I'm going to get this summer. I chill here, get in touch with my inner Carrie Bradshaw, and enjoy life without a television (but non-stop Breaking Bad on my Netflix streaming....let's not get crazy her.) I also give myself full permission to eat nothing but popcorn and drink non-diet soda. So there.
I'm puttering through my self-help library this week as well, and trying to get a plan together for going back to work. I'm committed to trying to live life a little more like the animals in my life...a little more chill, suave, go-with-the-flow, enjoying my people, and not stressing about the future or things I can't do anything about. I'm also hoping that this commitment lasts longer than two weeks. We'll see!
