Reprieve

My brain is full of a lot of nothing today. I don’t really mind. Schoolwork is on the light side this week, and I’m enjoying a break from repeating a list of what I have to do in my head. Over and over and over.

Online quiz. Groceries. Computer certification. Watch lecture. Do laundry. Gym. Try to get to bed at a decent hour. Call mom. Don’t spend two hours aimlessly clicking around Facebook.

I’ll pay the price for this quiet week next week. And the week after. And then no classes for the week of Thanksgiving. Then, two weeks of hell and I’m through. Hurrah? Oh, yes. Hurrah.

Did I mention that I’m running a 5K with my sister on Thanksgiving morning? It seemed like an amazing idea when we registered at the end of September. Before it was bitterly cold. Now we spend amazing amounts of time, effort and energy attempting to figure out what we will wear to ensure that we’re both warm and mobile on race day.

Knowing Michigan, it will end up being 55 degrees.

Predictably unpredictable. That’s how we roll here in the D.

I voted absentee. I am enjoying laughing at all of my coworkers who are gearing up to get in line at 6:00 tonight. So far, I have managed to skillfully avoid any political chatter. I can be rather passionate in some of my opinions. That can of worms? Better to be left unopened. Discussion of one statewide ballot proposal in particular, Proposal 2, could easily bring me to tears.

My hair may finally be out of The Awkward Length of Horrible that it feels like it has been in for the last few weeks. I’m not doing anything different – it has just decided to start behaving. Or has grown to the proper length to properly weigh down my hair so that I no longer look like the Whirling Dervish of Crazy.

Someone on my soccer team up and joined another team in our league. Claimed she didn’t know we were playing this session. Whatev. Pisses me off.
