It is going to be a long day

My Wednesday started out at 4:30 this morning, when Blue startled me out of a very deep sleep by jumping off of the bed and barking maniacally at either a rodent, a figment of her imagination, or a rapist/murderer looking for blood. My heart was pounding; it took quite some time to fall asleep.

It is Wednesday, so I have class immediately after work. My Wednesday class is the one I hate above all others. It is boring and mechanical and does not involve the type of thinking and reasoning that I am good at. Class will be three hours of pain, as it is every week, followed by one week of anxiety. I have an exam next week.

Much to my chagrin, I also have a hockey game tonight. Hockey has not gone entirely smoothly this season. I am not playing as well as I am capable of and it is immensely frustrating. My guess is it is because I am stretched so thin and, really, hockey is closer to the bottom of my priorities. It is hard to really psych myself up for my games when I am stressed/obsessed/occupied/consumed by every other facet of my totally insane, yet equally benign, life.

Work until 5:00 pm. Class from 5:30-8:30 pm. Hockey game 9:50-10:50 pm. I couldn’t possibly leave Blue in the house from 8:00 am – 11:00 pm, so I brought her over to Grandma and Grandpa’s house for the day. When I cleared the puppysitting arrangements with Grandma over the phone yesterday, she was horrified by my schedule. At her house this morning, she fixed my case of chronic busyness the best way she knew how: with food.

I am now the proud owner of the care package containing the following:
1. A bowl of chili
2. Applesauce
3. Pineapple
4. One batch of cookies
5. A bowl of macaroni and cheese (homemade, obvs.)
6. Broccoli, raw
7. A large chunk of watermelon

I’d packed myself a pretty meager lunch, so that worked out well for me. Life is better when you’re not starving.

Life is better when you're not starving! I'm jealous.

But I can relate to your Wed - mine is just about identical, only I have soccer instead of hockey.

Only tonight I'm not doing any of it. :-(

I want a care package and not b/c I'm busy but b/c I just do. :) I can't imagine being that busy. WOW!

Wow, score! Grandparents are AWESOME!

I can't believe your schedule either. I think you should just stay home and enjoy your care package!
