Oh hell, the end of another busy week and I have nothing interesting to say. I did sketch out part of an entry in my head but ran out of time to type it out and now it's gone.
This wasn't a week that lent itself to really deep thoughts or great doings. It was mostly a busy week, playing catch up. I did have Tuesday off work but it evaporated and I feel as though I didn't have it at all.
Did you know that I am the biggest pro at wasting time? Mostly all sitting in front of a computer, but hours can disappear and I don't have much of a clue where.
I guess you could say that basically this week I didn't have much of a clue. I still felt all behind-hand. Two annoying things at work that had been hanging for quite a while fell into place on Friday, so I was able to finish (temporarily at least) my worry about them and move on. There's still a third one as yet unresolved.
At home I'm starting to worry about things like the holidays, which I always feel kind of stressed out about preparing for, but I always really enjoy while they're happening. There are things I just like to do and I like to do them right and I can get quite anxious about it. I'm going to try not to do that.
Monday night was my poetry group. Tuesday was the amazing, evaporating day. I don't recall Wednesday so it must have been dramatic. Thursday was hectic as I spent all morning in a graduate school meeting, then raced over to the seminar to do my hostess duty there (and to listen in to the interesting presentation), then raced over to an eye doctor appointment, which took two hours. While there I managed to put cleanser on my contacts, which they're not supposed to have and the doctor later put them somewhere, and so he gave me new ones to use until the ones we just ordered arrived--these ones fit differently and feel quite annoyingly odd. I hate being aware of things like that, which is why I wear contacts and not glasses. I got home, ate dinner, and fell asleep at 7:30, and only woke up enough to go downstairs to bed. I slept straight through till 6:00 Friday morning when it was time to get up for another fine day of work.
We were social this weekend, too. Went out to dinner and a movie (The Station Agent) with friends. Then on Saturday morning we went to the airport to pick up a friend we haven't seen in years, who came to stay with us overnight. It was terrific to see him. Since we last saw him he got married and had a child!
So that's the sketch of what my life looked like this week. Tune in next week for another exciting episode of Life at Forty-Five: The Saga Continues Indefinitely So Are You Sleepy Yet?
Yes. Yes, as a matter of fact, I am.
