I mention that because I'm thinking about taking some weeks off. If I do, there will still be posts here. It'll be like when I was in Ireland for those six weeks and had a variety of people filling in here.
I'm just really tired. Maybe I'll awake tomorrow morning all rested and happy but all week long, pretty much, I've felt like I was dragging. And really just wanting to go back to bed, to just hug the mattress all day long.
If I do take a break, I don't think I'll go on a trip. I think I'll just lie around home watching TV. Of course, that won't be as much fun as it used to be.
Back in the old days, you could watch a soap for about four hours, you clip from one network to the next and actually absorb 12 soaps if you didn't watch commercials. All the soaps are getting the axe to the point that I think CBS has 2, NBC has one and ABC will only have one when 2012 rolls around.
Do you remember Hazel?
The maid? Had the half-hour comedy show?
Supposed comedy show.
I hated that show.
But when I was sick, I would watch it. Mainly sleep through it but it's so stupid and moronic when you're well whereas when you're sick and can barely handle anything Hazel is at just the right level.
I'm sure it's not on either. I'm sure everything's reality TV these days. Yet another reason not to take a break.
If I do, I will give a heads up. And I'm giving you a heads up tonight just to let you know I'm thinking about it.
