Day 11 – I Accidentally Slept with a Call Girl

‘Did you trip on something?’ replied Toby Ziegler.

It’s a semi-obscure quote from the West Wing, probably the second or third episode. Might even be the first. Best. Show. EVER.

I didn’t sleep with a call girl, by the way, sorry to disappoint. I just love Toby’s reply.

I did, however, accidentally overeat. Sadly, I didn’t trip and fall on a three layered lemon buttercream and meringue cake. It’s just that I was eating a piece of cheese while getting my lunch ready and then I finished the kids’ chicken and then I ate my lunch. It’s nowhere near the amount of food I would have had on a binge, but I still felt as if I had eaten to much, and not psychologically so much as physically. Then again, E has had a stomach bug, so it’s not impossible that I might have a touch of it. I just hope A and D don’t get it.

I’m not going to say there is no negativity lurking at the back of my mind, but it’s somehow being kept in check, almost as if it was looking in through the window. I didn’t mean to overeat and there was no sudden urge to eat other than out of hunger. I’m still very tired but it hasn’t really affected me today.

Now that E is better though, I’m getting back both the motivation and the ability to get things done so there was at least some editing and some knitting done. Productivity always makes me feel good about myself, as if I have achieved something.

The main stress trigger that’s coming up is the deadline for my end of module project, for my Advanced Creative Writing class, which is due in a week. There is a draft completed, which is good, I just have to polish further and write the commentary, but I’ll be glad when I’m done with it. Right now I’m struggling with the idea of working on it, but it needs to be done. I’m confident I’ll pass but from the beginning of my degree my goal was to do well. I’ve achieved that so far and I’d like to continue. Once I’ve finished this module I only have another one to do to graduate and I’m really looking forward to that one, it’s a module on literature from Shakespeare to Austen. I can’t wait.

I will miss studying after, though, but I reckon I can do some independent study. I love classical studies, but also more literature, of course. Mythology. History in general, really. So much to know in the world, so little time. Let’s hope I get to know myself by the end at least.
