All About You (Krissie)

6 Feb

Photo on 2-6-17 at 9.44 AM That’s my general state of mind when it comes to the world today. Aiyee!

I know, I was gonna talk about hair and stuff and then I got distracted. Tomorrow.

Wrote four days this week, which is an improvement, but didn’t get a lot done. Still working with my bedtime screen addiction – I start with my iPad, sometimes as early as 7:30, and can keep going till 1:30. I guess because I’m snug in bed, cats are all around me, Richie’s beside me, and there’s nothing I’m supposed to do (but sleep). But it means I get up late and feel logy and …
Well, it’s a hard time of year. Vermont is very dark in the winter, we’re currently strapped so there’s no getting out, and everything feels stagnant. I feel like I need a kick in the butt or something. But I shall persevere.

I was hoping hoping that the Patriots would lose, because of that cheating, ball-deflating, cheetoh-loving quarterback, but I guess the truth is he’s really good at what he does, and fuck politics (if you’ll pardon the expression). I made wings for the first time (we actually mainly watched the Puppy Bowl and the Kitten Bowl and even a little bit of the Fish Bowl, but that one was pretty boring). Messy things, aren’t they? (the wings, though the puppies and kittens can be too). I dread the clean-up. (You mean I haven’t cleaned up yesterday’s dishes? Why no, she says innocently).

feifferOkay, kick in the butt week. Picture me dancing … omygod, I suddenly realized what my word for 2017 should be. It’s dancing! Leaping and twirling in joy, sliding and jumping and doing the tarantella to fight off demons. So today I shall dance. (The sad thing being I sure as hell can’t dance – I can barely walk – but my soul can dance, so I’m dancing).

So. Writing. Playing with my dolls, goddammit (the entire weekend spent without any sewing or tinkering).

Dancing!

What’s on your agenda?

    I love the image of you dancing, fighting off the dark and the demons with twirls and leaps of joy. Have a great week!

    My new Alexa has made me dance like crazy. All day, I say, “Alexa, play me so-and-so.” Either a song or an album. And she does (except Prince, but I hear that soon we might be able to stream his music, too). Then I ask her things like, “What is love?” and get great answers back. I’m living alone this year, but–gulp!–I have a new friend in the house, haha!!!

    Krissie, I hope you’re on your feet and walking as much as you can.

    Hugs.

    I’m actually getting things done, so I’m happy. It would be better if Krissie would visit.

    Krissie, you have to put the screens away – Take it from someone who is so tired she can barely sit up straight and yet is still surfing the web. It engages the part of your brain that says I don’t need sleep, I don’t need food, I have internet. I find leaving everything plugged in helps.

    Also do you have a light box? Because that’s a real god send to me when its dark and cold. And they make them cheap now.

      Also Vitamin D, and motion (as possible), maybe chair yoga. Vitamin D and yoga are keeping me going.

      And maybe it’s been mentioned before, but use an app like F.Lux to slowly shift the color of your screen as day moves into night.

    How are you doing for weather?

    There has been countless days of unrelenting cold rain here. And just as I am feeling sorry for myself I hear of snows in the Northeast. Are you affected by it? Warm weather wishes coming your way.
