Decisions, Decisions

I made my self go to work yesterday by dangling the carrot of 5 full days off in front of myself. No reason to leave the apartment except to walk the dog and see the steam pipes.

Then before I left work I remembered that I have hockey tickets for Sunday and my highly opinionated and adventurous cousin is joining me. Not so bad, it'll cut the 5 days in half and keep me from growing roots in my apartment. On the way home I was toying with the idea of going to a museum, probably the Brooklyn one for ease of travel. I haven't been to a museum in a while and to go on a Friday is not a bad call, really, even with kids out of school.

At some point during the night I realized that I have friends coming in from Jersey Friday night to see a show and they'd invited me and I'd forgotten to reply. I don't see them enough and it would be good to see them. That somehow opened the flood gates. I should see Paul in his show. I haven't seen Magelox in ages and don't know how she's doing. I'm way behind in my work for the show I'm doing in February and it involves admin and creative work. It would be nice to return the New Year's Eve favor and invite Kath & Alex to have dinner at my place before the steam pipe extravaganza. My apartment isn't exactly dinner party ready just now. People were far too generous to me and I haven't unpacked yet and there's a lot to unpack. There's a lot to do in my 5 days. I have decisions to make.

I'm no good at decisions. Especially the opinion-only ones like all of these. My brain is just refusing to go one way or the other. So, really, who knows what I'm going to do? As of now I've managed to read a chapter in my book, feed the pets, eat something (pop tarts and yogurt, oh my!) and take half my meds. It's time to walk the dog, buy some cat food and think about a plan.

What are you doing this weekend?

    No reason to get yourself all worked up and then hit the wall of the New Year exhausted.
