Over the weekend I had a really crazy dream. In the dream I asked a front desk person at a hotel if they could help me change my flight to a later flight. They agreed and began typing away on their computer. Another front desk person said,
“There are no available flights until late next week.”
I said, “Ok, I’ll just keep my original flight then”
The first person said, “oh sorry, I already cancelled your original flight. You’ll have to take the one next week.”
That’s when I completely flipped out. I started screaming and throwing everything off the conveniently placed buffet line that was off to the side. I broke chairs and dishes, cried hysterically and cursed out the front desk team.
*Insert WHOA face emoji here*
Apparently I have been stifling some overwhelming emotions that I didn’t realize. I’m just glad they played out in my dreams instead of in real life.
But whoa, that was seriously intense.
Just when I thought this year couldn’t get any weirder or more challenging, it does. I’m doing my very best to just roll with whatever comes my way, but lately I’ve been in major need of a timeout.
A timeout with snacks of course.
Despite all the chaos, I’ve been diligent about my daily workouts (which is possibly the reason I didn’t lose my shit in real life), so I don’t even feel the least bit bad about wolfing down these decadent butterscotch bourbon blondies…….and washing them down with the glass of bourbon I used as a prop in these photos. Sometimes you just gotta do, what you gotta do.
I feel much better now.
There’s nothing that a sweet treat, a cocktail, and a good nights sleep can’t cure am I right? Tomorrow is a new day! Let’s hope I don’t freak out on anyone.
