It's Friday! It's Friday!! It's Friday!!!
Yes, I know, most people feel the same way mainly because it means that the work week is over and the weekend is here but for me, not only is that part true but it also means that I am heading off for my writing retreat this weekend! I am leaving after dinner tonight and heading back to the little cottage that belongs to some friends and spending the weekend mostly in my jammies and writing until my hands cramp and my eyes explode!
Sounds fun, right?
The timing is great because this has been a particularly harsh week - Nick's car died (blown head) and he lost his job. I don't know which one of us was on the more severe suicide watch - me or him. Actually, he is handling the whole situation better than I am and I am so proud of him but it's just added a lot more stress to my life.
I hate that we can't help him out more. I hate that he is going to have to struggle to get out of this situation but I also know that this will make him stronger. Me? It's making me want to go to the cottage and eat chocolate chip muffins and wash them down with Yoo-Hoo's all weekend long!
I'll try and not do that, but I make no promises...
