A meaningful post would be nice but I don’t have that to offer. Actually, it seems that I have writer’s block and while I have some ideas, I can’t seem to get the mind juices flowing. One problem might be that I do not have my laptop. It is with Best Buy’s Geek Squad getting repaired because my toddler decided it would be fun to start pulling keys off the keyboard. That is why I always get a warranty. The laptop I am using is pretty old and belongs to my ten year old and because I am so used to mine, I am not in not in my comfort zone.
Speaking of my toddler, he is gong through the terrible twos and wearing me down. I wake up to things crashing and doors slamming because my toddler is getting really terrible. I am not getting enough sleep because I am afraid he is going to do something crazy in the middle of night. He throws things, breaks things, and throws tantrums. It is very overwhelming when your life is crazy busy. I don’t remember my older one being this terrible.
I finished up my Local and State Government course and my final paper. I am still maintaining my 4.0. It helps that I have no math courses; that is one of the reasons I went into law – I am not good with numbers. Three more courses (next one starts on the 24th) and then, my thesis. By March, I will have my master’s degree but the current job market is discouraging. I have looked into other positions but the market isn’t helping. It was nice when people were hiring left and right but now that jobs are scarce, employers only care about the bottom line.
School shopping is complete and my ten year old starts school on August 25. My baby brother heads off to college this coming Friday to move into his dorm. Would you believe as happy as I am for him, I am sad. In eight years, I will be sending my ten year old off to college and realizing how fast the time goes.
There is a House marathon on the USA channel (on my DVR) which works for me. Did you know that House is somewhat of a crossover to Sherlock Holmes? In fact, there are many resemblances including House being an insane deductive genius. Like Sherlock Holmes who was addicted to his pipe, House is addicted pain medications, hates personal contact, plays a musical instrument, and his address is 221B. House’s only friend is Wilson, an adaptation of Watson. Watson does not condemn Holmes’ willingness to get the truth or break the law where he feels it is morally justifiable just like Dr. House and Dr. Wilson. Gotta love those made geniuses. I bet Dr. House would not have taken ten years to diagnose me.
I have an addiction with dramas that involve mysteries and geniuses: NCIS, Grey’s, House, Doctor Who, Torchwood, and even Desperate Housewives.
RA and FMS symptoms are not as bad these days but summer is usually kinder when comes to my symptoms. I am thinking of moving somewhere warm so that I have more good days but stress is also a factor and when you have a Type A personality, there is no escaping stress.
Well then, the writer’s block is back so that means it is time to hit the publish button. Hopefully, the idea juices will start flowing soon.
