Monday Again -- How'd That Happen?
I spent a lot of my weekend holed up with a couple of books and some leftover Halloween candy. Clearly, it doesn't take much to entertain me. I've never been one who required constant entertaining and have never understood people who have a need to be constantly on the go. Frankly, I find that tiresome. Which is not to say I'm a hermit. I'm not, and I'd find that much solitude unbearable. I stay plenty busy; like, for example, when my SO is around.
I'm one who appreciates the simpler pleasures of life, I guess. Growing up in a noisy, chaotic household, I learned young how to steal off to a quiet corner and amuse myself. I suppose I've never entirely grown out of it because I still prize quiet solitude whenever and wherever I can find it. I've always appreciated having time and space to think and to contemplate all the ifs, ands, and buts of life. I've by no means unraveled the puzzle but sometimes I think I'm getting close. Maybe.
Quiet contemplation will not be the case today. It's a workday, where I'm supposed to think coherently in the midst of noisy chaos. Which just means I'll close my door and do whatever the heck I feel like doing. There is at least one benefit to having the upper hand in an environment where nobody else knows the first thing about how to do my job. Boss Lady ain't about to fire me, not even if I paint myself blue and set my hair on fire.
Have a lovely Monday, my pretties.
