I’m late on keeping up with post a week because work is rough. I know I’ve said it previously, but no matter what I do this year I can’t find my stride. I’m not doing a bad job—there are just too many emergencies, too many strange problems, too many procedures and ways of workin in education I don’t know yet. I feel like I stumble more than I walk.
So I’ve been down.
Luckily the weather is changing –the extra sun helps.
Unluckily it is rainy season and we have a big ass roof problem. Requiring a replacement that the insane insurance adjustor says wasn’t affected by the massive ice storm—except yeah, the inspector found no structural issues . Even though I worked in it for year, I freaking hate insurance sometimes. I get the need for it, but the main answer to everything is NO, NADA, NYET, no WAY.
The post a week for the previous week was refuge. The Post a week (picture challenge stylee is Abundance.
When I am overwhelmed sometimes I watch TV like a sloth, hours and hours of it. Yes I admit to this unashamedly—WHY? Well we have 6 or more bookcases like this. A bookcase or more in every room and baskets for books in the bathrooms. Even the kitchen. And I’ve read most of the books in the house. Twice or more. I *had* to have a kindle because we ran out room to put books, and many of the ones we have are classics of literature or scifi or fantasy that we hope Bean will want to read, indeed is reading (Coraline, Harry Potter, Catwings etc).
And when I am overwhelmed I read. I read very very fast. I can eat an entire many hundred page book in a day if given the time. I ready when I can’t sleep. I read in the bathtub and on the commode.
And how do I know my life isn’t as bad as my brain wants to tell me it is sometimes? All those books. I’ve read them all, I have some part of all of them in my brain and if I forget and I can read them again. And we have all those books. And we have eyes to read them with.
