Thursday On My Mind

So, I've cleaned the bathrooms and washed anything that isn't pinned down.
'Cause I'm not thinking about Thursday's appointment with the neurologist.

I've created invitations, capes, eye masks, decorations, gift bags and tableware for a party that is weeks away.
'Cause I'm not thinking about Magoo's tests results that we'll get on Thursday.

I've made list upon list, planned meals and organised myself into a frenzy.
'Cause I'm distracting myself from fixating on 1.30pm this Thursday.

I've made (overcooked) cupcakes, wrapped gifts and sorted photos.
'Cause I am avoiding the whole 'Thursday's appointment' thing.

Are you as 'clever' at ignoring something that's eating away at you as me?
Hey, look.
 There's a cute kid in the bath.
Let's think about that.

I am extremely good at doing this Shar. I am a procrastinator and serial avoider from way back.
Sending lots of love and luck for Thursday. Will be thinking of you xoxo

Oh lovely, I've been thinking about you and hoping you're doing ok, I didn't realise the appointment was this week. Sending you lots of love and hugs.
And I am a classic for avoiding the sometimes difficult realities in life. I think it's just a common defence mechanism xoxo

All our best thoughts are with you! I am just like this, usually it's sitting on the lawn pulling weeds or making my pantry so organised Martha Stewart would cry.

I'm working backwards so reading this now I already know it's a happy ending but yep, I do the same thing... Busy, busy, busy. It's the only way to cope for some situations I think. xx
