In which my head might implode

So I just did about 25 minutes of my 60 minutes Pilates class and then I left.  Why did I leave?  Well, I felt like my head was going to implode and my back was hurting too!  I knew I shouldn’t have bothered going with the mood I was in.  One thing I always try to do is go with the flow of my moods.  I know there are all these people who say that when they work out they feel better.  That might be true but I’m not one of them.


But Lynn, you might say, you go to work out every day!  It’s true; I do work out almost every day but not because I love it and not because I’m in a great mood after I work out.  I work out because when I start my day with a workout, I feel like I did something that was good for me and I like starting my day out positive like that.  Then, when I spend the rest of the day treating my body like crap, I can flash back to the one good thing that I’ve already done.


Last week, when I was playing Mahjong with the fogies, one of them asked me how I can always be eating chocolate and stay so thin.  First, let me tell you that I’m not thin; I just wear large clothing so you can’t tell.  Second, they always put chocolate out on Wednesday afternoons when we play and I have absolutely no self control.  I pointed out to them that I don’t keep that crap in my house so it’s really just a once a week thing.  I have to have chocolate every day so I start out my day with a chocolate protein milkshake.  It keeps me full, it’s good for me and most importantly, it’s CHOCOLATE.


At any rate, I was debating whether to actually work out or not this morning and I decided to go.  I screwed up; I should have stayed home because I’ve got a lot on my mind.  For example, due to the various stages of moodiness I’ve been in lately, I’ve barely done any writing at all for this blog.  I like to be at least a week ahead in my posts so I don’t worry about it.  However, the down side to being ahead in your posts is that sometimes, they get outdated.  For example, today March 2, I just posted something I wrote around Christmas time.  For a lot of my general posts, it doesn’t matter, but for others, they just have to go in the trash and that’s pretty goddamned irritating.


So, I haven’t written much and also, next week is Spring Break for the girls and the week after is Spring Break for Daniel.  Andie is going to Amsterdam with her Duke Club Field Hockey team and of course, she texted me last night with lots of last minute things she needs me to bring her for the trip.  So, I’m heading down to Duke today if I can find all the miscellaneous crap she needs.  Keely, meanwhile, is coming home and I was supposed to have set up lots of appointments for her.  I didn’t. 


The week after, Daniels spring break, we had planned on taking Daniel from Boston down to New York to look at colleges and have some fun while we were at it.  Then Kevin decided he didn’t want to take the entire week off and Daniel agreed that he wanted to chill (which is mostly playing Xbox 24/7) as well for the last weekend.  Then I was informed that they wanted to go to Boston sporting events at night and 2 or 4 tickets were possible but that 3 was difficult so “why don’t you just stay home?”


Ok, no problem; I’ve seen all those schools before with the girls so I won’t go.  I’ve wanted to go to Los Angeles for a while so why don’t I just shoot over there while they’re in Boston?  So, the end result is that I have a LOT of arrangements to make today for two trips, not to mention running down to Duke and then breaking the news to Keely that I haven’t done her shit and also, I’ll be abandoning her part way through her break.  So yeah, I was distracted.


And when I’m distracted I can’t focus and I certainly don’t want to be told that I need to contort my body in this direction and that.  So, I walked out of Pilates and now I’m here actually typing up this rambling post.  Once again, Mission Unaccomplished.


Beyond that, I have phone calls to make, paperwork to attend to, and apparently that gigantic pile to the left is all our tax stuff which, for some reason, has yet to organize itself.  As per usual, this post has no point and is going nowhere…but then again, isn’t that the story of me?  I have no point and I’m certainly going nowhere either…except, MAYBE L.A.  Now leave me the hell alone so I can get some stuff done.


I’m just saying…

    So THAT is why my blog says you posted this at 5:45am and your blog says you just got finished working out? Did you really finish working out at 5:30am or was this pre-written? I am dead to the world at that time although it isn’t impossible, I know. I used to be a competitive body builder and I was out of the house every single morning at 5am to do an hour of cardio! That seems like a lifetime ago!

      Well Nicki, i set up blog up to post at around 5 am but i never bother changing the minute hand so i’m always somewhere around that time. Also, half of these things are out of date cuz i get all excited about a post and bump shit back. Basically, i’m disorganized but WTF, it’s my blog right?

      I work out at 8:30 at the earliest…i got up early for years and it pretty much sucks.

        I am glad to hear that you were NOT just getting out of a workout before 6am! I was feeling like such a slacker! You do WAY more than me as it is!

        You are right…it is definitely your blog and who the hell IS organized these days? I sure as hell am not but you seem so ahead of the game!

    Dear Lynn,

    Do not get stressed about blogging every day, because then it’s not fun. I mean it’s not fun for you, for us it’s always fun. I wish I could blog every day, but sometimes it takes me days to manage this, due to work, coming home late and being completely exhausted to even turn my laptop on.
    I’m sure you’ll manage all the stuff you had to do and you’ll have a wonderful time in LA!

      Thanks…I appreciate that. Of course, I don’t work so I really have lots of time to do stuff. I actually enjoy the writing for the most part, I just hate this time of year. I’m sure I’ll feel better soon. Thanks for being so supportive

    Stress..Papers, things to do, meals to make, cleaning to get done, exercising, appts., people to call back.

    Writing to do.

    I hate stress.

    Just as much as you do

    It paralyzes me, and I end up doing nothing.

      yeah, my entire adult life has been an art form for trying to avoid stress. Of course, having both parents die, one kid with Aspergers and another with a massive tumor didn’t help but i prevailed…and you will too!
