Girly Days


Yeah I know guys. I can see you rolling your eyes already. Just let me be a girl for one post okay? I've been pretty sick this week. Working from home is a beautiful thing anyway, but this week it came in rather handy. Test results not in yet, but suffice to say I've caught a very yucky virus. Worst I've ever had, and this is no exaggeration. I hardly ever get sick so that makes it worse. The medicine has me thinking clearly at about 50%, my emotions are completely out of whack, haven't eaten much so the energy level is very low, can only eat soft foods, it's just been one of those "I want my mom" weeks. The good news is, I've had so much sleep I don't know what to do with it, and I've had a chance to watch some of my favorite movies, for hours on end. It made me realize, wow, I really miss "girly days". When my sisters and I lived together in the same house, we had a lot of these. I loved them. Facials, painting fingernails and toenails, new hair-do's, sipping mimosa's......Okay I'm just kidding on the mimosa's part. That came AFTER we turned 21. I swear. And then of course, watching all the girly romantic chick flicks. (I just lost 85% of my male readers of this post) =).
As I type this, An Affair to Remember is playing. "And all I could say was, "hello"."
I've watched Nottinghill, "After all... I'm just a girl, standing in front of a boy, asking him to love her", You've Got Mail, "Hey, how about... oh, how about some coffee or, you know, drinks or dinner or a movie... for as long as we both shall live?", Serendipity, "Well, if we're meant to meet again, we'll meet again. it's just not the right time now", PS I Love You, "P.S... Guess what?" oh I could go on. I'm not sure why I turn to these favorites when I'm not feeling well, or at home and having some extreme down time, but turn to them I do. I think it's because they remind me, on screen, of all the girly stuff. The hearts and flowers and romantic ideas, I like to wrap my arms around them. So much for that tough image, maybe not everyone will visit today and learn my secret.
So yeah. I love Stargazer Lilies. And romantic movies. And little things, the tiniest of things, like him remembering that I said I love bunnies, or looking up and realizing that who you have a crush on is staring at you....

Thanks for allowing me to be mushy today. And for those that know me well, thanks for being patient and understanding, it's been a long week. But tomorrow is Friday, it's supposed to be warm, and it will mark day 4 of medicine. Surely that's a recipe for the beginning of a very nice weekend.

I'll see you for breakfast Saturday maybe? There's always Sunday too. Brunch!
Until then, sleep well friend

I love that phrase, that you "turn to them" for something. AS DO I. I love to turn to them. There used to be a traveling preacher who came to our church and called people forward to "give them a personal word". And as young girls - deep down - we would hope and hope that he would call us up and give us a word about marriage as if that part of our future was somehow written over our head like a banner. Or maybe it was just me. And the other day I was thinking that the movies I love are like popping into the movie player just the "word" you need to hear that day, "Yes, dreams come true." "Yes, it's best to marry your best friend." "Yes, Mr. Darcy is proud but beautifully generous too." "There's no place like home." Etcetera. I love that about film. Love, love, love it.

We are one Seren,totally. That is EXACTLY why I turn to them. Becuase they leave me feeling better than when I first popped the movie in. Always.

Great post tiffany. For me, in those times, I listen to music, and the music always fits the mood. I can listen to songs and get lost in the lyrics, and that always makes me feel better. Hope you are feeling better soon, being sicks is no fun at all, but the down time is always needed. Take care.

Tiffany said...

Ah music, thats my other happy place. My days cannot ever be, without music. Thanks for checking in Doug =) I'm better this week (thank God, felt like I was dying)
