Today is one of those days when I feel restless. No where to go, no money to do anything fun, and can't sit still. I've been reading in the recliner, changed to the screened in porch, then to the back yard. Not comfortable anywhere I light.
The house is a mess. Stuff all over the place, and I wonder sometimes how Prof and Kiddo get up and down the stairs with all of their junk piled on the steps. My piano area is piled full of Prof's books, shoes, and a variety of other trappings of her life.
The kitchen table is covered with scrapbooking stuff (not mine) and there is no place to set down a plate without moving a bunch of stuff.
Besides that, I am tired of dieting and have a really bad case of the munchies. And to top off this feeling of restlessness, Kiddo's games and music are driving me nuts. The longer he plays them, the louder they get. I know I am sharing my home willingly, so I can't complain about everything, even though to him it probably seem like it right now.
It's too hot (about 90+) out side and I don't feel like walking or biking in that. Gas is too expensive to waste it just wandering around. Maybe, I just need to go to my room, close the door, and sleep this one off. Maybe when I get up, I will feel human, or a reasonable facsimile thereof.

I hate days like that! When I was a little girl, I would occasionally have days like that where I would just pace around in the house, occasionally slamming something into something else just because! My mom always called it my ants in the pants days. She could usually distract me by suggesting we play cards or something. When I got old enough she'd send me to the library or the grocery store on my bike to pick up something she didn't really need, just to get me out of the house and give me something to do!

Now when that restless, "ants in the pants" feeling shows up I know I have to get out of the house. Going for a rather purposeless drive is still my escape of choice. Radio (or CDs playing some favorite) is essential. I sing along at the top of my voice and the feeling goes away after a time.

But I guess a nap would work too!

You should have called. I would have come got you and you could have gone to Wally World with me and my oldest son. Oh wait, you hate going there. Especially today. I think there were people in every aisle I had to go down. Remember just 2 more days till we can go to Hobby Lobby.
