20 Times Around the Block, Twice on Every Speed I've Got.

This has been one helluva week. The ups were tremendous, the downs had me sleeping on the bathroom floor. We no sooner got one kid healthy and the other one got sick again (and again). I have cabin fever, I can't get the smell of sick out of my house and I am wicked edgy. Today I even went to the gym to exercise instead of resting with the hope that it would help make me feel less anxious and tightly wound. It helped. I need to remember to exercise when I feel like I'm going to jump out of my skin.

The other thing I do to help me relax is listen to music on headphones. It blocks out the sounds in my house - the toilet with the phantom flush that I need to fix, the neighbourhood kids yelling across the street, the hum of the dishwasher. I feel like I'm in my own little world for a few minutes (a world where I don't have to worry about filing taxes, paying bills and finding a new job).

Tomorrow I get a night out of the house - I'm escaping the 'burbs to go see John Mayer in concert with my friend Christopherr (talk about a hot date on Valentine's Day!). Props to Lulu and Scott for being cool about this. Let's hope John shuts up and plays the guitar.

    I saw him last night in London. He doesn't shut up nearly enough. At one point Jay yelled, "Sing a song!". But his band is good, especially Steve the drummer. You'll like the show.

    Fave quotes:

    "I'm John Mayer, and these are my songs."
    "Thanks for spending your Saturday night with only comes around once every seven days."
    "You had a rough week, I know, but you know what? You had Mayer tickets. And those tickets were HOPE. Yeah. Hope!"
