It hasn’t been a good day.

This morning I woke up with a strange feeling that forced me to get out of my cozy, flannel-sheeted bed and into the bathroom.  I went back to bed and within a relatively short amount of time that same, strange feeling forced me up again.  Suffice it to say I spent the better part of my day in the bathroom, which left me feeling dehydrated and weak.  And very, very sad.

After sitting in front of the TV watching Pirates of the Caribbean At World’s End (three hours plus commercials) and Alice in Wonderland (two hours plus commercials) I felt a little better, partly because my system had purged itself and mostly because I spent five hours looking at Johnny Depp.

When I finally felt like I could eat, Husby made a nice, comforting snack for us both.  After that I treated myself to a melt-in-your-mouth cherry Christmas cookie.  Crack!  One of my crowns fell out.  Not just a crown, the same crown that fell out the day before Christmas Eve while eating a chicken pot pie.  I had it temporarily reattached last Monday by my bereft dentist who, within one hour of my appointment, was going to delivery a eulogy for his father.  I also found out I had a calcified root canal in the same tooth, which will require more work to be done by a specialist in the very near future.

When my crown fell out (again) after a day of disgusting stomach displeasure I looked at Husby, shook my head and said, “I think I’m going to cry.”  And so I did.

Marvelous way to start the first week of a new year, don’t you think?

Oh what a sorry excuse for a blogger I am.  But the good part is I’m actually writing every day as I resolved.  None of it is good enough or interesting enough to show you, though.

It’s a dreary, wet day here at the Auntie B’s Wax World Headquarters, the kind of day I just love.  It inspires me to be domestic and cozy.  I like Fridays because I get to leave the day job at 10:00 a.m., which gives me a long weekend every weekend.  I also use Fridays, for the most part, as a homekeeping/cleaning day.  Another of my resolutions that I didn’t site in the resolution post is to honor Friday as a homekeeping day more than I have been.  It’s so easy to look upon the hours ahead of me as freebies.  But now that I’ve become more disciplined I should be able to get my weekly housekeeping chores done while most people are still slaving away at their day jobs.

The best part about getting the house work done on Friday is that there are still two whole days left to do as I please.  I can work on creating things for the upcoming 2013 craft shows.  I can write blog posts.   I can list things in my Etsy shop.  Husby and I can go out and do something together, like go antique shopping or take on a home improvement project that requires both of us.  I can also just laze around and watch movies or read magazines if I want.  The possibilities are endless!

When I’m finished with my cleaning and tidying today Husby and I are going to settle in by the fire and watch Dark Shadows.  I used to be a huge Dark Shadows fan when I was in grade school and would race home so I could watch.  Of course looking back on that dreadful soap opera it is practically comical, and I hear the movie isn’t much better.   But it’s got Johnny Depp as Barnabas Collins, so it can’t be all bad.

Are you old enough to remember the Dark Shadows soap opera?  Have you seen the movie yet?  I’m looking forward to it.  For now I’m going back to my cleaning duties, and I’ll leave you with this little bit of ’70s entertainment.
