“Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting a different result.”
– Albert Einstein
Thanks for your lovely encouragement the other week. All evil overladies should have a coterie of such fabulous minions. I’m taking it to heart and working out a few schemes!
J. and I went on a bit of a spree last night. He picked me up from the gym and we ran a couple of boring errands – and quite suddenly we decided to run more errands for fun and ended up driving nearly all the way to the city mostly just to wander around shops. And this is not a pastime either of us are known for. I found his birthday present and took advantage of free samples (I am a sucker for lotions and potions, particularly the kind I don’t have to pay for). Burgundy was on the mind, we both trawled for the shade – he for pants I for a blazer. We ended up getting ice cream, which we haven’t done in months if not a couple of years.
It was delightful! It’s nothing big but we’ve not done anything spontaneous of late and deciding in the late evening (still dressed in workout gear) to just go was remarkably refreshing. There is nothing so mind numbing as routine and boredom. Slough it off whenever you can.
