I'm trying to maintain a cheerful disposition, to be excited about the impending holiday. But all I want is for it to be Friday, when I can leave this place and lock myself away for two weeks. Hallelujah! I'm going to knit, read, cook, write, hang out with my animals and forget that I should be looking for a real job. I need to power-down or I'm going to melt-down instead. I wish I had a cave tucked away somewhere safe in the forest just for the beasts and me. A mossy sanctuary of our own, where we could hide.
