"The eyes indicate the antiquity of the soul." -Ralph Waldo Emerson
It's been a rough couple months for me personally which is starting to drift into all aspects of my life including my sleeping patterns and creativity or lack thereof. Perhaps an inverted tree with a black back ground and red bulbs hanging form the white branches might me more festive. I'm feeling in a bit of a bah humbug sort of way, which is not really like me. (My husband and I have had role reversal.) I do love Christmas, but am tired of the commercialism and expectations. As much as I try to simplify- as a woman, wife, and particularly mother there is always so much more to do than I would like. It's a rough time of year for a perfectionist suffering from SAD.
So, incase you don't follow me on facebook, I'll share some other scary Alicia quirks. I woke up a couple nights ago in the dark at 2AM with my heart racing a hundred beats per minute wondering why my husband was talking to me. Turns out I actually woke up screaming bloody murder and was even hitting him. He said it sort of freaked him out. I also woke up with only one sock on, which is becoming more of a night time ritual that occurs while sleeping. If you look closely at my eye picture you'll see the small red lines in my eyes that show up even in black and white- indicative of an unrestful sleep. I constantly have freezing cold hands, which may be why they couldn't draw blood from my fingers the other day. I also don't like to have lights on in the morning and my husband is convinced that I'm a vampire. Except that I hate the cold!! I would give anything to be able to live in a warm, sunny climate. I also seem to be cursed with strange ears. I've gone through at least 5 different set of earphones and have yet to find one that stays in my ears... makes running frustrating. Even the children's sizes seem to be too large. Haldan wants to get me those humungus ones that would cover half my head. Afer talking with my brother I learned it may be a Barnes thing. I could go on, but maybe that's enough quirks for one day.
