I'm very much enjoying all these lawyers in my office with their green ties today -- even Blackbeard. It's like they're still all dressed up but LOOK, a bit of flair! I myself am wearing a teal dress, which is close to green, but also not bright green and embarrassing. I like my compromise. And I'm wearing the dusty plum boots, which are mood-lifters. My St. Patty's celebration plans are just to get lunch at the Irish pub around the corner from the office, if (please please) we can get in and get a seat. I'm going with the paralegal, and I just want some corned beef, but she's also interested in some beer, so we'll see what happens. (And despite my headline, I'm not a big fan of Guiness. It's too dark for me, and bitter like black coffee.) I am definitely not going to get silly, because I think that would make for a torturous afternoon at my desk.
Tonight I'm going to try to hit the gym, assuming I'm not in an Irish coma, and tomorrow I'll walk home again. I LOVE being outside instead of in my crappy gym, but I did not wear walking shoes today, plus I gave myself a blister yesterday from too-thin socks. Someone needs to do laundry.
I'm also in a worrying mood lately, and I'm annoying myself. I feel like I'm being more oversensitive than usual and more fretful, and I'm sure the people I'm around can tell (and are probably also annoyed!) I'm trying to establish some new guidelines for my relationship redux, but I think I'm extending into over-controlling as an attempt to not get hurt again, which, of course, is ridiculous. I'm laying out plans for everything, and I need to step back and embrace some flexibility, especially because I'm dealing with a man, and in general, they are not fond of boxes. It all may be partially blameable on hormones, too, but I still need it to go away. I miss being laid-back.
