I was going to start with, “I’m in the midst of a nervous breakdown” but that would be inaccurate. I have been in this state for a while. It sucks but it could be much worse…I’ve been there.
I will be traveling to northern Virginia on Friday for two nights. I’m taking my mom on a business trip. I’m not looking forward to it. I have to drive there after work. I really wish my mom could drive. I’m going to try my best to be in a good mood but ugh, getting up at 5AM to go to work and then driving near DC. *Groan*. I’m just a ray of sunshine right now. Sorry.
As of right now I have no plans to go to DC. I’ve been there numerous times but it would be nice to see the new MLK monument. Or maybe the White House. The last time I was outside of there was when Bush was the Pres. But I’m sorta over DC….I think. I don’t know. I haven’t packed. We do have a nice hotel suite. (not expensive – it isn’t that close to DC). And I shouldn’t complain about my mom not driving because she is paying for the whole trip. I will probably buy the food.
What fun. Northern VA, whatcha got? Besides a mall, a “zoo” and a park? I’m so going to that mall. 🙂 I usually skip that part of VA and head straight to DC so I’m not that familiar with the area. I got lost there once. Not fun. I do want to go to the park. I might do that while my mom is doing her business stuff.
I love hotels and just getting away…even if there isn’t a beach. Sorry again, I have the Sunday blues or something.
I’m either starting yoga this week or next. This week probably isn’t a good idea since I have so much to do for the short trip. I think I’ll save it for when life is less a stressful.
As I do every few years, I’ve been reading a bit about asexuality. It just confirms that I don’t identify with a sexual orientation. I identify more as female* than a certain sexual orientation, or my ethnicity. I just don’t think about sex so why would that be an issue in my life? I do find other people’s stories extremely interesting. Sex really complicates things, doesn’t it? I don’t need that and I don’t have that problem. Thank the Buddha!
*I used to not identify with being a female at all but things have changed over the years.
I did go to a gay center. It is not what you think!!! They have a thrift store (lol). The money they raise there supports the gay center. I broke one of my rules. I brought TWO books. I’m a bad, bad girl. There was so much stuff to sift through. I was just looking for sweaters (oh and I found the book section). I brought 1 blazer, 1 blouse, 2 jackets, 1 sweater and 2 books for about $15. Not bad.
