I am quitting today and starting all over.
I am going back to bed and when I wake up, I will make another pot of coffee just as if it were morning.
I will put on fresh pajamas.
I will pretend I didn’t spend Ellie’s nap staring at bills I cannot pay.
Or preparing dinner for tonight.
Or telling my anxious heart to stop beating so quickly.
I am quitting today and starting it all over again.
Sometimes, you just need to.
