Lull before the storm
Today was the first relaxing day I've had in a long time. After a grueling day/night in lab, I got home at 11:30 last night and basically collapsed. I slept like a log until late this morning. Had great wake-up sex, and then rolled over and slept for a few more hours while Jason went grocery shopping. Awesome. Woke up to coffee and pancakes (also courtesy of Jason). Vegged with a magazine, a book, and the t.v. until around 3. Decided against taking a nap, got dolled up, and dragged Jason out to the mall. Got the shopping out of my system, and got a ton of neat new clothes to fit my idealized vision of dressing more professionally for lab to appear more like a post-doc and less like a graduate student. Also did some killer damage at Eddie Bauer for Jason. The wallet is now empty but I have shopper's high so it's all good. Then, we watched a movie...in the theatres, which is rare for us. Now, I'm taking a quick peek at my cells before heading home to relax. I guess I wish I'd had time for a workout, but I've been so stressed, I felt I owed it to myself to give myself a break for 1 day. It feels good. I have a little anxiety and guilt creeping in now for having so much fun today. I'll make up for it tomorrow. At least now, I can look cute for my committee meeting Tuesday. And I got some of the top things done on my wish list! That's gotta count for something.
