Deadsville, USA : DC in August

So, it is summer in the district. Despite all my verrry exciting news and the fun of telling everyone, it is August… in Washington D.C…. in a federal government agency.

It is deadsville, U S of A.

While quiet can be nice, really nice, it can also be … quiet.
Very. quiet.
So. quiet. that I… am. starting. to. drifffffttttt.

Like a snowbank:
smooth, serene and sleepy.

Sure, blame it on the grey carpets, grey walls, empty hallways, lack of boss-like figures but is there something else going on?

I have loottssss of work to do and can’t seem to do anything besides think weddingy thoughts, watch olympics and literally stare into space. a happy stare into space, a deep deep calm, slumbery smiley stare into space.

I think I know what it is. Like how I used to get sick right after finals every semester, or how you go home and take a longgg nap after finally finishing that project. I think I have been stressing and fretting and relationshipping for so so long before meeting my love that now that I can rest my body is really ready to REST.

And rest I am, body, mind and soul in this blissy spacey sleepy place i am not too familiar with. maybe it’s happy?

    I have been feeling this way too. Lots of work to do, but it’s soooo slow at the office that I’ve started to lose my momentum. This afternoon I had to gulp the caffeine so I wouldn’t just keel over into full on napland at my desk.

    But just think, two more weeks and we’ll be back to all the normal government hustle and bustle (maybe even more intense with the election coming up…)

    But I love the emptiness of DC in August (well, except for the tourists). So peaceful before the hurly burly of fall.

    Missing DC at the moment …
