It's OK Thursday

Its Ok Thursdays

It's OK ...

... to be weirded out by pictures of people kissing.
There were lots of them on New Year's Eve, and those were a bit much.
But it's even weirder when someone makes that their profile picture.
Wedding and engagement ones don't bother me too much, but other than that ...
It makes me think they're trying to prove something.
Or maybe I'm just bitter.

... that I'm not good at taking baths.
You know those people who just love to soak in a tub for hours?
I'm not one of those people.
I took an epsom salt bath for my sore muscles last night.
After ten minutes, I was bored.
I guess I'm just not a bath person.

\\\\////

... to hate this cabin fever, but not really be able to do anything about it.
Have I mentioned that unemployment sucks? Because it does.
I stay home every day, and for the most part, my only contact with people is through the computer.
Sure, I could leave the house, but that would likely make me spend money.
And that's not wise right now.
So instead, I just feel worthless and lonely. I hate it.

\\\\////

... to be struggling to avoid online shopping.
I've known for a while that one of my coping mechanisms for loneliness is online shopping.
I mean, new packages arriving have a way of making me feel better.
But, again, I really shouldn't spend money right now.
I spend my time on Pinterest instead, looking at stuff I wish I could buy.
It's almost the same thing.  Almost.

\\\\////

... to realize this post has been full of negativity.
I'm sorry.  I try really hard not to be such a downer.
I know my situation and life could be a thousand times worse.
But I guess I have to throw a pity party every now and then.
And until now, I've been keeping that pretty quiet.
I'll quit my whining now.

\\\\////

... to contemplate having some sort of movie marathon on Saturday night.
Nevermind. I'm definitely having it ... complete with popcorn and M&Ms (that's my free day).
I just have to decide on a theme.
That's the hard part, I think.
Sports movies? Music movies? Movies with a certain actor/actress?
I'm open to suggestions.  And I have a pretty good variety, plus Netflix, so I'll make it work.

\\\\////

... to already be longing for nice weather so I can run again.
I really don't like the treadmill, and I can't run very long on it.
Outside, I have no problems with running a decent distance.
But I know there are at least two more months before the weather warms up.
I'll just have to stick with the treadmill.
And daydream about the nicer days.

\\\\////

... to be really excited about the Cupid Swap I'm hosting.
I really want a few more people to sign up though.
The more, the merrier. 
It's going to be great fun.
And who doesn't want to have and be a valentine?
Come on, bloggers!!

... to end this post with this picture in hopes of countering all the negativity.
