Working girl

Oh man, how do you people do this?

Had my second day of work today and with that I have been reduced to an aching pile of flesh and bones, helplessly slumped on the couch with pathetic pleas for someone, anyone, to please bring more wine.

Considering that I have been well unwound for the past six months, the need for unwinding after a measly two days of work is surprisingly big. But if there's anything I've learned from all those well spent hours watching Oprah it's that you should listen to yourself and to your body. And what both me and my body seem to agree on and loudly proclaim is that what I need is to sit on the couch and enjoy a few glasses of red wine while that vacant look spreads slowly across my face and my eyes glaze over.

So that's what I'll do.
Because after all, who am I to question the infinite wisdom and knol edge that is the Oprah Winfrey show?

You should always listen to what your body tells you to do.

This afternoon, my body was telling me that it was a great idea to have a white chocolate chip cookie, and after much discussion with my body, I concurred that it was indeed correct and had one.

Bodies rule.

Hahaha. I feel the same way about parenting. I baby-sat my sister for two full days and nights and by the end I was so exhausted, I was like "how the eff do you people do this like 24/7 for 18 years??"

Too true, Josefine. Listen to your body -- it needs more finely aged grapes!

Congratulations on getting back to work, though -- that in itself is worth drinking a bottle or three! :)
