but I need something with a longer view. So I’m going to mark this as “done” and move forward. 19 months ago

For the next few days, I need to have laser focus, getting everything ready for classes to begin. First one starts this Sunday, then bang-bang-bang the other three will kick in a week later. Web sites to get up and rolling, student packets to assemble, lots to do.
I’m so excited! I love my work! 20 months ago
Monday night, just as my honey left town to go to Comic Con, my doggie got very sick. Gabi has esophagitis, we aren’t sure why, but she was in a lot of pain and acting oddly. We spent most of the night at the emergency vet’s and then at the pharmacy, and with her med schedule and special food my week of working-from-home-and-getting-lots-done is a shambles. I don’t even remember what I was going to do with it!
So. This morning the vet simplified the meds and, after a few days of flailing about, I now have a routine for the three dogs including the sick one. I am less sleep deprived. I am actually wearing clean clothes and I do not smell yucky. I am going to get out of the house for a walk BY MYSELF, refocus, and figure out what it was that I was going to accomplish this week.

but it fits more here than anywhere else.
I am tired, bone tired, from one major big deal thing after another. It is WONDERFUL to have almost more work than I can handle. It is WONDERFUL that people in my life are reaching milestones. I am just TIRED.
And this week is shaping up to be super-challenging.
So here’s the key achievement that MUST happen for the next few days: I have to NO KIDDING get enough sleep.
With that pronouncement, I’m gonna mosey over to the bed. Night, y’all! 23 months ago
is to get HOME.
I have looked forward to this meeting for almost a year. I flew cross country on a red eye, becuase I “never” have trouble sleeping on planes, until this time. Sat down on the plane and could NOT sleep. Back began to seize up. Could barely walk at all upon arrival.
I have enjoyed this meeting, but not as fully as I’d hoped, because I have been exhausted, jet lagged, and in pain the entire time. I learned good stuff, had many good conversations, and all those good things. I am not sorry I came. At the same time, I am actively homesick (me! at age 56!) longing for my Sweetie and my doggie, and just aching to go home.
My flight is tomorrow afternoon. Tonight I am skipping the final banquet to catch up my email, do stretches on my hotel room floor, and gather my energy for the long trip home.
My objective: HOME!!! 1 year ago
and we did celebrate!
Our youngest son got a Master of Social Work degree from UC Berkeley today. I cried when he walked across the stage. His brother hollered. His grandparents kvelled.
Then we came home and partied. It was GREAT. 2 years ago
