Life, don't talk to me about life...

Life is both boring and terrifying all at once.

There's no work at work, so I'm not going to make enough this month to pay the bills.

At all.

Then there's the boring part. I have a lot of "stuff" to do, but most of my time is so fractured with teaching Thing 1, running around with Things 1 and 2, now teaching (which, when I'm taking the bus is a godsend of unadulterated time), and then...the stuff I do to myself (spinning, knitting, podcasting).

I'm trying, in the middle of all that, to find time to write--for publication--and that's what's got me right now. I need more than 15 minutes here or there, or an hour at night when I'm wiped out, to get the articles done and the book draft done.

Blah blah blah.
Bitch bitch bitch...

And in the middle of it all, I know I'm one of the luckiest people on the planet.

Hang in there!

And you know you can always take a little break from the Podcast, we'll wait! Taking care of you is more important. :)

Hi Heather -- it's 4 in the afternoon, just got home from the first day at school and I need a NAP! Understand (and I'm sure you do) that I could run through the content blindfolded and backwards, but it's the context (new faces, both students and colleagues) weather challenges (HOT!!!), logistics challenges (over 200 more kids registered in the few days before and after normal registration and sections added) and my own family turmoils and I need to escape.... BUT life is otherwise good. So -- I feel your pain (and pleasure)!
