I am really looking forward to this weekend as I am going to hang out with a friend whom I have not seen in 3 years and we are going to get him moved from New Orleans to Tampa. For the next 5 days or so, I will be out of town and I don’t know what my access to the internet is going to look like so if you guys don’t see me on here, I am doing okay and having a good time. One of the things that I love to do is drive so I am looking forward to driving the rental truck.
This morning I woke up and did all of my adult daily living responsibilities, including changing the sheets on my bed and making it, and this on a day when I do not have anything going on until a lot later in the day. I am understanding how creating healthy routines is also making a commitment to caring for myself. Since I am still in early recovery, it takes mustering some motivation to do these activities but I instantly feel great after them.
Since I did so well as a result of the partial hospitalization program, I am going to treat myself to breakfast at my favorite local diner. I want some hot, fresh coffee and maybe pancakes and bacon. Although if they have corn muffins, I might have to do one of those because corn muffins are just one of those breakfast food items that are so satisfying. I will also bring my laptop because I want to get cracking on some creative writing which I keep putting off.
I think I keep putting off the creative writing because I am having trouble taking the story in my head and placing it to paper. I guess it is a form of writer’s block but the only way to get past writer’s block is to write. I can always go back and edit it a little bit later but I want to publish the first episode of the serial (my story) today about time travel. Today this is an immutable goal so if I have to work on it while waiting for my plane to New Orleans, so be it!
