How is it that February always feels so long, when it’s the shortest month of the year? The cold and dark seem harder to bear, somehow. Now that it’s March, at least it seems possible that spring might arrive, though at this moment, it’s really frickin’ cold out where I am (-20 C, feels like -31 C with the wind chill, and snowing) and the cold is supposed to stick around for awhile. Blech. Is it really March, because it sure doesn’t feel like it.
As a way to boost my spirits, I decided that one of my goals this week is to plan something fun for later this month. I mentioned the idea of a date night to my husband (or maybe even a date overnight?) and he’s onboard. However, my school schedule is pretty busy, what with midterms and a research project due soon, so I’m going to have to sit down and take a hard look at my schedule and see when I can fit in an evening away from the books – one where I’m not so exhausted that I fall asleep by 8:30pm. I’m hoping for sooner rather than later, but we’ll see.
Still under the weather today. Stayed home this morning and slept until 11am, then went into school because I had a patient booked. Luckily it was a short appointment and I was home relatively early. I’m thinking that if things don’t improve by Friday, I’m going to have visit to my doctor and make sure I don’t have some sort of infection going on. Here’s hoping that I feel a little more chipper and a little less like I was hit by a bus tomorrow morning!
Oh, and I haven’t booked that massage yet, but I definitely will tomorrow. I’ll wait until I’m sure I don’t have a virus to pass on before I go, though. How do you pamper yourself when you’re feeling rundown?
