40 minutes til I get to go to bed!!

Yes, so part of this "nip depression in the bud" is regular scheduling. As in sleep. So even though I could have easily crashed when I got home from work (early, see tweet) I am sticking to a 10 pm bedtime. And yes, today I woke up with an alarm. Well, I snoozed much-o, but at least I had enough time to take a walk and was home by 8:30 a.m.

It was a short walk, a little over a half mile, as it was also RAINING. But I really want to be well, so I determined that I WOULD take a walk even if it was HAILING.

So part of what I'm doing right now, b.s.-ing with you, is an effort to not crawl right over to my bed and climb in. 35 minutes to go...

So, some books I didn't finish: Sandcastles by Luanne Rice. The Courtyard by Marcia Williet. Not books to read when depressed.

25 minutes.

I'm sure you are SO thrilled to be reading this EXTRA THRILLING jam packed blog post so I'll give you a little something: 23 minutes.


So, let's see, we have started another puzzle at work (in the break room). Um, the last one was fairly straightforward, all the pieces had an identifiable part of something in the picture. This one is a Thomas Kinkade. Think impressionism. (Not like as beautiful, but nuances and brush strokes....) GAH! But I did help put together part of the edge. All in all, I placed three pieces in during the 10 minutes before I got too frustrated.

Oh, and this is big. I sent an email to my landlord and gently suggested that we might talk about carpeting/flooring, since I've been here 12+ years. This is HUGE, as the perfectionist/procrastinator in me would rather find out every option and then talk to my landlord, and since that would take forever, I never move a finger. Can we say STUCK?

Twenty minutes! I think I can now officially change into PJ's and brush teeth.

I'll be back.

Oh, steps for today: 4762. Pitiful, but darn it, I walked 1/2 mile in the rain!

10 minutes!!

Ooooh, 5! I just went and commented on Katrina's first day of school--she's teaching kindergarten!

Okay, the last three minutes are gravy. Thanks for keeping me company. I'll be more interesting later, I promise.

You made it! And thanks for the shout out for my first day of teaching. It was exciting, but I gotta level with you. The first week was kinda stressful, too. I guess it's not much different than any new job in that regard! This week has been better, though, as the kids and I get to know each other and the routines better. Hope you sleep well tonight!

Two fonts walk into a bar. The bartender says, "Get out. We don't serve your type in here."
