I’ve become accustomed to a certain flow around here, a flow that goes pretty slowly most days. But now, with a class that meets from 10-12, a half-hour commute, lunch, exercise . . . suddenly, here I am at 2:38, finally with some time to myself. Luckily, I don’t need to plan class tomorrow. Over lunch I reviewed my notes and while I exercised, I listened to a podcast on the topic of tomorrow’s discussion. I’m thinking I’ll write on alternate days, so that this week, I’ll write on Tuesday/Thursday and next week, I’ll write on MWF. And yes, I do have from 2:30ish until, say, dinner, to do something. But there’s the kid corralling to do and the general distraction they cause when they’re around. And, there’s still housework.
And . . . I walked away from this before I finished thanks to one of those distractions. Also, I have been suffering from on of my major headaches for the last few days. It’s pretty mild, disappearing altogether sometimes. Like during class, I didn’t notice it at all. But now, it’s back. I took ibuprofen, which may or may not relieve the pain. It’s always hit or miss. Having these things really sucks. Though I can function, a lot of times I don’t really feel like it. One of the biggest side effects besides the pain is fatigue. It feels as though I haven’t slept for days. It makes having even a mildly packed schedule a challenge.
