Change of Plans

I was going to get up this morning and go to Costco, but when I awoke, I was in one of those moods where I didn't even want to get out of my pajamas, let alone go out anywhere.  

I schlepped around the house for a couple of hours doing not much of anything.  I sat on the couch with my coffee and just stared out the window, with nothing really going on in my head.  I'm not even sure how long I sat there.

A phone call from my Mister jarred me back into consciousness.  I was so grateful for the call.  Grateful for the diversion.  I told him I was feeling a little lost and depressed and I don't think he knew how to respond to that, so we both let it fade away and moved on to another subject.  I made him understand a long time ago that women really just want an ear.  We don't expect men to fix it for us.  

I told him about the plans I had to go to Costco and how I was completely unmotivated to do it.  He suggested that I get out of the house tomorrow and meet him at the Costco in Timnath.  Maybe that was his subtle way of fixing it?

I agreed to meet him, because I need some contemporary company right now.  I need to think about something besides the fact that I can't shoulder needs repaired and I have a heart problem.  

He suggested we make a day of it.  I have been wanting to go to Trader Joe's ever since they came to Colorado and I just haven't gone yet.  Took me two years to make it to IKEA when they first came here, too.  I kinda like to wait until the frenzy dies down when wonders like that come to town.  I remember when we first got Krispy Kreme.  Cars were lined up a mile down the road and around the corner. 

So, I will get up early and head north tomorrow.  Hopefully it will shake me outta this funk I'm in.
