I called in sick from the world yesterday; after asking laurie_robey to extend my regrets to the people at work I stayed in bed until something like 11:00, and then once I got up I didn't check e-mail, sign on to Twitter or IM, or even get dressed until the middle of the afternoon. It wasn't until Laurie got home in the evening and we went to get some dinner that I actually made contact with the outside world, and even for that Laurie and I mostly sat and blinked wearily at each other. It wasn't a relaxing day of leisure; I've been wandering about in the past few weeks feeling shellshocked, and yesterday was a "I just can't cope with today, come back tomorrow!" day.
The good news is, I seem to be better for it, today. Laurie and I are both still stressed, for all the same reasons, and I would like nothing more than to be able to call up video games and blow stuff up mindlessly all day-- but I don't feel defeated in the same way I did yesterday. Today I've worked my way back up to "keep calm and bugger on" level, so that's what I'll do.
Oh, the work I didn't do yesterday? Is due Monday morning. :P So I guess I'll be doing some work this weekend. Probably not today, too much other stuff to deal with, maybe tomorrow.
