(Not to mention my apartment.)
I've been in a mostly-self-induced funk for what feels like a week. Part of it is being tired and busy and having too-little down time. Part of it is Mark is also in a understandable funk over the loss of his family dog, and since we're apparently psychically linked, it's tough to be in a good mood when he isn't. Part of it is being a Benedryl zombie for part of the week. Part of it is I'm stressing about Thunder getting (hopefully) adopted this weekend. Part of it is... I don't know what. General malaise? Not enough introverting? A pathetic lapse in my yoga practice? Not eating well? Not getting a selfie with my favorite Jack Sparrow impersonator at Comic Con this year?
It all adds up. (Particularly that last one.)
"Blah" accurately describes the way I feel right now.
So. Cleaning is needed. There are cobwebs hanging around, keeping the light from getting in. All the things I should be excited about seem duller than they should be. And it sucks. Because there's a lot of really exciting things going on, or potentially going to be going on. There's been a lot of good news and big decisions and things to look forward to.
There's so much more than this drab week.
The very thought that Thunder has gotten far enough along in the adoption process to be going on a trial adoption this weekend should be nothing less than amazing. This is the dog I've had for over a year. The dog who I often wondered would ever get to the point of being adoptable. The dog who truly earned the nickname "fuzzy asshole." The dog who has become so much better of a dog than I thought possible. The dog who always insists on being my co-pilot. The dog who I'll miss in spite of myself.
And, even though I tragically didn't get a selfie with my favorite Jack Sparrow impersonator, I did get to return to Comic Con as the Girl Wonder (and work with Mark, who is better than any Jack Sparrow, real or otherwise). We got to spend 4 hours Sunday wrangling nerds (my favorite people) into the Fish Eye Fun White Screen booth, and then wander around the convention and gaze upon Daredevil and Foggy from afar.
Another really awesome thing that I should be pretty damn excited about? I've officially been the Fish Eye Fun project manager for a whole year, as of yesterday! (I knew I wasn't done celebrating anniversaries.) It actually seems hard to believe that I've been doing this for so long. I guess time flies when you're ridiculously busy and generally like what you do.
So yes. This week kindof blows. But it happens. It's not the end of the world.
Besides, with any luck, by the time next week I'll be living in a temporarily dog-free apartment for the first time in over a year. Weird.
Maybe then I actually will get some cleaning done.
