I can read Sam's mind

  • Mood:

I'm friends with the monster that's under my bed

So, I had lunch plans with a friend today but I cancelled because it is 16 degrees outside -- a literal 16, I could just die.

But I also have spent the morning thinking about my holiday break and how I spent the whole thing watching TV and eating and withdrawing from society. Now, a break always is beneficial, in my opinion. But I know when I hibernate extensively and get to the place where human contact almost seems painful -- it means a big depression is coming my way. Since I see this one coming, I'm going to try to head it off.

Some things to work on:

  • Getting back into the habit of a regular bed time.

  • Attempt to spend at least one evening a week with no screen time -- no TV, no computer, no ipad, no iphone. (Not sure I can manage this one long term, but even a short break will do me good.)

  • Prepare my own guidelines for a no-spending month in February. (spoiler alert: I still intend to spend money.)

  • Take Max a little further on our nightly walks. Even one more house down counts.

  • Make music mixes for my ipod. I used to do this all the time and then I stopped and I don't know why.

    Onward and upward for 2014.
