Other bloggers have talked about their plans for the summer, mapping out their time, and so on, and I have a chart along those lines myself. Somehow the chart failed me today, however, even though I have a lot to do. It was a trance day, and I did nothing all day long.
A trance day is a day when you might as well have stayed in bed. It's sort of like a vacation day, except instead of doing lots of outdoorsy fun things, your only exertion, mental or otherwise, is fixing a bowl of cereal, and even that seems like kind of a challenge.
On a trance day, the exercise plans are the first to go: even my beloved early morning walk didn't get done this morning. I got up early and fell back asleep after I sat on the couch to put my shoes on. All day it felt as though someone else was carrying my brain around, and they'd wrapped it in a comforter so I couldn't hear what it was saying.
About noon, I quit staring stupidly at the computer, gave up, and watched Bette Davis movies all afternoon. I did a little reading, but I barely moved off the couch all day, and yes, since falling asleep in the morning wasn't apparently enough, I fell asleep this afternoon, too.
I'm hoping that the trance day has given me a lot of stored energy for tomorrow and that whoever has my brain will give it back.
