Pain is so boring...so let's talk about something else
Right now, I don't hurt. I did take 2 ibuprofen before I worked out, though, so who knows. Tomorrow will be the test--it has been that working out makes things better the next day and I hope that's true. Right now, I'm waiting for a friend to write me back and he won't and it's making me crazy. More boring things. What else? I'm getting creative about job prospects for next year and have been humbled and wowed by the support from the folks at my school. In the end I fear it will be like being in labor with Daisy--false starts, long work, lots of pain, aggravation, stalling, and in the end, surgery! Of course, at the end I had Daisy. So maybe that isn't a bad analogy. Right now, I'm realizing tomorrow is the beginning of teacher appreciation week and I'm in charge of a classroom and it's going to mean a lot of going up to school. But I do appreciate them! Right now, I'm starting to plan a girl scout camping weekend, juggling many folks' different schedules and of course the inevitable no-response emails. Will this girl really go? Will she not? Should we plan for her? Right now, I'm typing on our new laptop. It's taking a long time to get used to the big square in the center where I used to rest my hands when I typed. We have the laptop on the desk where the old computer was, and it's hooked up to the old (not that old, actually quite good) monitor so we can, sigh, watch netflix movies and do other things at the same time. We are geeks. Right now I'm glad that even though it cost a ridiculous amount of money, the data recovery place recovered all my data. Right now I'm making a list for Target (discount department store) and the market. Right now all the laundry except what we're wearing and whatever may be lurking in Fiona's room, is clean Thank you Jake. Right now the public radio station is playing its Sunday night jazz program. Right now Billy and Fiona and Daisy are all asleep. Right now I'm declaring the dishwasher officially dead and I'm giving in and calling a repairman. Right now I shiver because I'm done working out, I'm dressed in a tank top and sweaty. The ceiling fan blows on me and I'm cold again even though right now it probably hasn't dropped below 85 degrees outside at 10:30 at night. Right now is the beginning of the end of the rest of the school year--speech is over, the last field trips are this week, the university that sponsors our institution does their evaluations this week, we have a PTO meeting to set up things for next year, there are final art projects and clean ups and then we're free the 25th. Right now the tomatoes are wondering why they're not in the ground yet. Right now thunderstorms are coming and the weather will break again for a bit. I think this calls for a glass of wine. Right now.
