I think that all is a bit "off" because my wife is spending the nights with her parents. When she gets home in the morning, we have coffee, read the paper, and catch up on how things were the night before. I really don't want to go anywhere once she is home, and that feels okay.
I have a tendency to be solitary so cocooning at home isn't that unusual. When I was working, the days between Christmas and New Year's Day were when I rested and did as little as possible. I knew that once the Christmas holiday was over, there would be few long stretches of time when I would be able to vegetate. In the last few years, my cocooning has been on the boat. I much prefer being out on the water and away from the marina, and right now that isn't possible.
In a few days, I will be taking a road trip to Florida. The thought of the long drive isn't appealing. Maybe I am preparing subconsciously for the drive and being away by resting and staying at home. I will be there for a few days and then head back home. I'm trying to psych myself up for the trip. I'm not being very successful at that for the moment.
I did manage to go see the movie "War Horse". It was a throwback to the type of feel good movies that Hollywood used to make. I like a good horse or dog story. And somehow I think that this was as much about how terrible war is as it was about fate and how it may work in our favor.
Today, I am going to debone the turkey and help C. make a turkey pot pie. She scoffs at turkey leftovers, but I think that this might actually be a good tasty dish. Okay, this paragon of domesticity is going to get to work. And then it will be time for a nap.....
