What have you done without a random thought post in over a week? I mean , c’mon…my inner narcissist is screaming for self-indulgence.
I realized I have tried a few times (very few) to write on my short story re Myrna and her shoes, but haven’t. The random posts seemed to trigger my ability to sit and write so I guess I have to do something if I’m ever gonna finish that piece.
I figure if my dog wakes me any more frequently in the night, or any earlier in the morning, the two moments will eventually meet and I won’t have to waste time sleeping. I don’t think I have to worry about it effecting his sleeping though.
The shingles are back. I have now officially had shingles a grand total of five times in my life. Four have been in the past ten months. Pretty soon I won’t have to go to therapy to figure out my stress, it will just purge itself through my skin. Luckily I don’t get much in terms of skin breakout just the other symptoms… pain sucks… but oozing, pustulant sores suck more… I will deal with pain any day.
Stress is an odd thing. Even good stress can make life rough for a while. Why have the same coping mechanism for the good and the bad? NO SENSE! No wonder so many people don’t know how to get their needs met without negative reinforcement. It’s an internal system.
Doug knows no decency. He really needs to stop snoring right now because he is the reason I was up at 4am .
Tuesdays are generally my most difficult work day of the week. I have been trying hard to change it. This week was my last Tuesday with that schedule.
I am addicted to live animal cams. It used to be a fascination with wild animals in kenya and eagles in D.C. I still check them out, but there is this litter of puppies in MD and the LA kitty rescue cam that have captured my heart. Well they’ve definitely captured my desire to procrastinate on paperwork with a visual distraction.
I am trying to put together an art therapy group. I am enjoying experimentation with different art projects. I would find it more relaxing if I didn’t have to find time to do it. Art should always be something you want to do, never have to do.
My new computer is quite possibly the biggest pain in my butt right now. I HATE this thing. It is sooooo slow, it converts every jpeg to a jpen and I can’t download those, it’s electronic mouse is an insensitive prick and I have resorted to a wireless mouse… I have to get it back to tech support next week (when I have time) and get help to figure it out!
It’s going on 6am so I better get moving. I need to hit the shower and the grocery store in that order. Then it’s off to work. I believe I am finally done telling clients that I am moving to part-time in the group practice. That means I am ending with more than 20 people. It’s been a time limited, emotionally draining, couple of weeks. Saturday will be the last day of the process. I am looking forward to it. Until then I am off to get ready. Have a great day.
