Getting Away

I had something happen last week that upset me. Looking back now I can see that it really wasn't that big of a deal, but I tend to get caught up in things and how I feel about them. Anyway, I was upset.

By Friday afternoon me and Mr. Skittles decided it wasn't doing me any good just sitting around staring at the ceiling lights and THINKING so much. THINKING can tend to over dramatize things for me. (Maybe it does for you, too. Blogging has taught me that we all have a lot more in common than I used to think.)

Once we'd decided a course of action.. going on a road trip.. it didn't take long to throw a change of clothes in a duffel bag, pick a direction to drive (south) and take off. The point being to get away from the computing/blogging/Facebook world for a few days.

Are you an over thinker? Or can you just 'let things go'?

i can be an over thinker and then...sometimes we need to leave home. i tend to loosen up away from home. i don't think of too many household chores. hope it helped you. have a good day. rose

I wish I could just let things go but I cant. I think and think until I drive myself crazier or make myself sick.

Oh yes, I think and worry and worry and think till I feel ill.

I need someone to get me out of it as well but my partner isn't really as get up and go as that so I can easily be left to brood :(
