I've been feeling pretty anxious this morning, slightly better now that I've talked it through with Mr. Pie. Sometimes the minutia of big projects can overwhelm me and tomorrow marks the start of our week-long cleaning project. Tomorrow will be mostly a fun day in Roanoke where we'll see a movie, have some lunch and make a stop at the lowe's down there to pick up our supplies then Sunday will start the heavy lifting: painting the kitchen cabinets in (EEK!) oil based paint! Why is oil based paint stressing me out? lol I haven't chosen the perfect shade of white for the cabinets either and that's stressing me out. I think I'm just going to paint it the true white that comes from the can.
I have two fairly large homework projects to do over break, and that's weighing on my mind. I promised a friend I would sew some vintage lace on to recycled-cotton pillows she's sewn(photos to follow), then this morning, as if that wasn't enough, I decided to start trying to plan what I'll be doing this summer. Do I take some courses at Community College to transfer? Should I find paying work? Should I volunteer if it means getting some decent job experience for a resume? The volunteering part sounds great, but I probably won't be able to afford to commute if they aren't paying me at least a little bit, and just regular summer jobs are not abundant in my tiny town where I wouldn't have to commute. Do I really want to work just for the sake of working? As Mr. Pie points out, we don't NEED the money. It would help, but it isn't necessary to live. I just don't want to be bored, ya know? And if I'm just taking two 100 level classes by Independent Study, I'll probably get bored pretty quick.
I have so much twirling around in my mind right now, which is why my anxiety is so high I think. It's too early for a glass of wine.
