Winnie-the-Pooh and Disco Fries

What a week!!! Stress, stress, and more stress...why can't the week before vacation be easier? It's work and it's social commitments, and it's housework, and it's planning, and it's downtime...and it's just that everything seems like it's the biggest most difficult thing in the world.

I don't know about you, but when I feel this way, I want to shut down. I want to crawl under a rock and pull the covers up over my head. I want to retreat to a safe warm space where everything is soft and easy. A place where I can cuddle with my Winnie-the-Pooh and forget that anything else exists. That's what I want right now. I don't want to think about anything. Not only do I want someone to come along and tell me that everything will be alright, but I want them to lay out a plan and do all the work. I want to just wake up and have everything be fixed and shiny like new. I want to ignore it until it goes away.

Times like this, I never get what I want. Times like this, I still have to keep moving, keep going. It's times like this when I need my instincts to kick in...what's right, what's healthy, what's going to help me accomplish the goal, what's right? Yeah, I know I asked that one twice. But that's the real question, isn't it? What's the right thing to do? When I'm overwhelmed to the point of inactivity, I need to know what the next right thing to do is. Sometimes it's nothing. But usually there's more to it than that. Regardless, it's kinda like food. If my instincts are right, I'll always choose the salad over the disco fries. And to be clear, one should never choose the disco fries.
