Feeling Sorry...

For myself that is.

It's been a rough week with the kerfluffle that Bugaboo dealt with on Monday, the ensuing parental outrage on Tuesday, the need to kick some Mr. A butt when I checked his grades online and saw a score that should never be associated with his brain and finally a new worry that I won't go into that popped into my less than orderly life on Friday.

So this morning as I sit here drinking my coffee, I'm feeling sorry for myself. Sorry that all these things piled up and worry over a monster has consumed so much waking time this week. And then sorry that I'm so obviously selfish that I'm sorry about that.

I'm sorry that I have no energy to go finish the purging that I started last week. I felt so much better about the state of my house after last weekend. And to be truthful, the state of my house wasn't horrible before last weekend. But the purging made me feel good, and reminded me that I'm not my grandmother, and there is no need to keep something "just in case".

So I think today will officially be "Sorry Nonnie" Day and I'm not going to do a damn thing. Maybe tomorrow I'll feel more like myself and I'll do something constructive with my weekend.

But for today? Today I'm going to whip up a batch of Caramel Chocolate Ginger Swirls, drink a tankerful of coffee, read some of the kajillion books in my TBR pile, take a nice luxurious bath, slather cream over all areas of my body and in general just pamper myself. Because really, if I don't, who will? And I don't care what anyone says...sometimes you just have to wallow in selfishness in order to be a selfless Nonnie...

Until later...
