Soooo Tired Today

I started and deleted a bunch of entries -- some on the computer, some just in my head. Each time, I would start babbling, then I would realize they were getting long and boring. So I canceled them. Now I'm just trying to hit the important points in each entry.

I started an entry about ice skating. Important point: no I'm not doing synchro this year, and I don't know if I'll do much speedskating yet.

I started an entry about my knee. I explored a nice metaphor about how, when you have a bad cold or something, even though intellectually you know it will go away pretty soon, sometimes you feel like you will always be sick. "Go on a trip 5 months from now? I can't; I'm sick." Important points: it still hurts, but it's getting better. I feel like I can't make any active plans though, because I can't imagine it functioning okay. Like I will always be crippled. Also I was bad and skipped my followup doctor appointment a month ago. Work got too busy. I'm finally going back on 9-22 though.

I started an entry about yoga. I've never done yoga, but think it might be neat. When and if my knee gets better. Important point: I've decided to give it a try, even though my knee is still healing. I start class on monday.

I started an entry about the Big Sister people. Important point: we've been playing phone tag so I still don't know what's up there.

I started a few entries about my eyeglasses. Important point: I think my eyelashes are too long for glasses, because they brush the lenses. But my lasik screening is on monday, then I can finally wear contacts again.

I started an entry about work. Important point: it's still stressful and frustrating, and the offsite people I have to deal with get to do whatever-the-hell they want.

I started to write an entry about going dancing last night. Important point: well, that's about it. I went dancing last night. It was fun, and I dragged C along, who is back from his long vacation.

I started to write an entry about relationships, and how I feel about being touched, but it got long and complicated without ever reaching an important point.

I started to write an entry about being sleepy, but I've drunk a cup of coffee and updated my journal, so I'm feeling a little more alert. On that note, I suppose I'll stop with this babbling and try to finish my last hour of working. Then comes the weekend. Yay!
