Slice of Solitude

birthday-comic 2Don’t get me wrong. I don’t hate my birthday. I really don’t. I have just never felt the need to “celebrate” it.

This year, regardless of convention, I’ll do what I want to do. I’ll eat what I want, when I want. I’ll live out the day as I see fit. When the blessed day falls upon us, I will be tucked away in an oceanside cottage and I can honestly think of nothing finer than to be surrounded by things I love most: my husband, solitude, the ocean and many foodstuffs.

Busy Busy!

Things have been super busy these days. And I won’t deny, it’s been stressful, too . Even for me, (who’s typically pretty “chill”, as the kids say), stress is sometimes unavoidable. I get through it.

So what’s a good way to deal with being overworked and stressed?

Make more work by drawing pictures about it. 😉

Sunday Funday!

20130407-210216.jpg

I feel no guilt about how I spent my Sunday. It was the first beautiful day we’ve had in a while, but it’s also the first day in sometime that I’ve had time to myself that doesn’t involve stupid chores or shopping. Melinda Time will always upstage a sunny day.

Back to the grind tomorrow.
