THINGS I DO WHEN I'M SAD AND LONELY AND THE DAY IS GREY.

  1. Take a nap in my daughter's bed.
    It's always St. Paddy's day in here.
  2. Bake some cookies.
    Today's are chocolate chocolate chip.
  3. Watch Netflix rom-coms.
    This is generally a bad idea and I'll be ugly crying for a while just thinking about those crazy kids that just can't get it together.
  4. Make a detailed escape plan.
    Scour the Internet for the most remote location and fantasize about running away there.
  5. Then I have to watch a murder show.
    Usually something pithy and British(are those the same thing?) A little murder in a quaint village usually calms me down and makes me feel better.
  6. Be over sadness by 7:30 so I can dominate at Jeopardy.
  7. Finally leave the house at 11pm.
    Options are limited at this hour, but I usually choose Taco Bell-fueled night drive if it's nice, or Queen of all I survey at Meijer if it's cold/rainy.
