What Life Looks Like

Someday I'm going to look back at this and wonder how it all happened.  In short, life is crazy.  It feels like the inside of a watch with all the cogs fitting together just right to make things move along.

Yesterday I mentioned that I was having a down day.  Part of what I have to do is very reliant on other people contributing, and it's tough because of course you can't control what other people do or don't do.

I was so wound up yesterday that I couldn't figure out just which cog wasn't fitting.  I decided to go another route.  The first attempt failed, which just wound me up further, so I tried again.

It was funny how as things failed, I got more quiet.  I absorbed the failure.  I could feel it in my stomach.  The only thing I could do was try to find a way to solve it.  I tried everything I could think of to get on top of it.

This time, it worked out, and it ended up that it not only worked once, it worked twice.  PHEW!  After it was solved, I was almost giddy.  Suddenly all the overly wound feeling disappeared.  What a relief!

I found that I can copy and paste my schedule here.  This is what it looks like to the end of the year.  The one thing I haven't included is the need to sign up for the capstone course.  That will happen after the finals are over.

Among all of this, I have Christmas shopping to finish, and I'm determined to do Christmas cards this year, but they're going to be super simple.

I have, however given myself something to look forward to....

Starting this afternoon, I get to introduce #5 to Harry Potter. We're going to start reading The Sorcerer's Stone today. We'll work through one chapter a day until we're through the entire series. It'll take forever, but I'm so excited! He reads everyday by himself, but I miss reading to him, so on the way to school this morning, this is what we discussed.

Can't figure out how to get rid of all of this empty space.
