Upon arriving home earlier this week, I commented to April that it felt like I had only begun my work day about 15 minutes prior. That’s how busy I have been this week.
On the plus side, I’ve gotten some solid overtime in, enough to pay for the pair of pants I shredded when an errant net (the one by the softball field which marks the pitch-practicing area) was blown into my handlebars as I rode by, causing me to fall/fly/roll off my bike onto the rocky ground.
April and I are going camping today, and intend to return tomorrow, should the Lord tarry. I know I haven’t done hardly any writing this week, because I’ve been busy every day and busy/exhausted every evening. Two nights ago, I had time to write, but I crashed on the couch with a book and a glass of scotch and didn’t move for several hours. I fell asleep at 8, April woke me up sometime later and I read some more, then slept until 5:30 a.m., like I’ve done all this week. I don’t know what’s waking me up at 5:30 everyday, but I shake my fist at it.
I’m taking some really good books, and my notepad/pen as well. I won’t have my laptop, so no longer pieces will be completed, but maybe I’ll get a poem or two written. Hopefully, I’ll also get rested, because I’ve been exhausted. Truly. exhausted.
By the grace of God, I will carry on.
Two nights ago, I had a dream that I slept all the way through Thursday and that it was Friday, blessed Friday, when I awoke. When I told April, she promptly pointed out that it was Wednesday.
And yet I still went through the entire day thinking it was Thursday and that today would be Friday and I would be done for the week. But nooo, because “reality” has to go in “chronological, linear time patterns.” I believe this is due to its complete and utter hatred for one Matthew Stublefield.
My week hasn’t been bad, by any means. I’m just tired and anxious for the weekend. I have a ton of fiction work I want to do on Saturday and I’m really excited about it. When I redesigned my website, I got rid of my wiki because, as cool and full-featured as Tikiwiki was, it still wasn’t simple/nice enough to just throw my thoughts at. It took too much formatting and work to really be comfortable just sitting down and mind-dumping into it. Maybe I’ll find something else before Saturday that would suffice better.
In super-positive news, the latest version of Ubuntu (and this one a Long-Term-Service release, no less) drops today o/ I’m stoked, and I’m also excited about a faculty member who is bringing her EEE PC by for me to try and get Ubuntu onto it. That should be a lot of fun.
WordPress just released an upgrade, so I went ahead and did that. I love software that only requires a few seconds to backup, update, and continues to run the entire time.
I’m really tired. I should not be tired this early in the week. 2 years until I graduate, though, and I’m speaking at FnC tonight. And playing djembe. I hear tell that they’re going bowling, but I’m going to bed.
I have creative things I want to say/do, but I’m yawning instead. Rather than typing out my yawns, I’m going to hit “publish” and go back to downloading drivers at 60 KB/s…
