Thinkin' About It Thursday

This week I'm thinking...

  • About how tired I am now that I'm exercising regularly again and I'm wondering when all that "extra energy" I normally get from exercising will finally kick in.
  • About how well I'm sleeping, though, for the first time all summer, so that's a bonus.
  • About how I know in another few days things will even out and my body won't be quite in as much shock.
  • About how I still don't have much quilty mojo but that'll come back too.
  • About the fact that DD heads back to school on Monday for her senior year of college.
  • About how much I'll miss her, but I won't miss the stacks of cr*p in the family room. 
  • About how she can't get her car packed fast enough for my taste because somehow the stacks of cr*p in the family room are multiplying frighteningly fast as she moves out of the bedroom and basement and lands in the family room as a transition point before it eventually (and better!) all ends up in the trunk of her car.

Princess doggie doing her best to win my sympathy.

  • About my princess doggie.
  • How she is clearly not herself, but doesn't have specific enough symptoms to go to the vet.
  • Whether I could call them and say, "Well, she's just not as freakish as she usually is."
  • And... "for her, calm isn't necessarily a good thing."
  • And... "She actually sticks by my side in the back yard. That's just not right." 
  • That my work task list seems to be using fertilizer--it just keeps growing no matter how many tasks I prune off it every day
  • That I turn 49 next week.
  • That I've always preferred "0" years to "9" years because 9s are the end of a decade, 0s are the start of a brand new one.
  • That this birthday next week starts my "sabbatical year," as Frances puts it. 
  • That I may be in for a lot of changes between my 49th birthday and my 50th one, sabbatical year or not.
  • That I really enjoy the #twilters because they make me feel like I'm still in the quilty world even though I haven't touched my machine in nearly a week.
  • That I have a lot of other very random thoughts wandering through my head this afternoon so this should probably just end here before it devolves.
