This project I actually like! This was homework over the weekend & I got my sketch book back tonight. I was feeling really empowered...until Tuesday night. My teacher told us to pick a seashell from a box & we had to draw it...on 18x24 drawing paper. I picked what I thought was a super cool shell. It is not. It freaking sucks. I may try to re-draw it this weekend. We will see. I'm not sure the teacher will be so happy to have me re-draw it, but it sucks...it sucks bad! So bad, I won't let Don & Kendall see it. I feel like I should stop typing & go re-draw it right now...but really, that will not end well. It will have to wait for tomorrow.
It's just been one of those weeks where I have been miserable. I wake up exhausted & in a bad mood that I can't seem to shake. Kendall & I are fighting like pros. Low blows equal extra points. We're currently tied for the highest score of the year. Although I pulled ahead temporarily when I told her that her grades were indicative of needing remedial courses...she added points when she told me that our entire relationship since she was born has been a constant fight. Work, which I love most of the time, has been particularly challenging this week. Bugs in computer programs gravitate towards me & I found a big one today. Which, nice as it is to locate an error in the system, meant I had to re-do all the work I did the day before. A full days worth.
I think the planets are out of alignment...or something. Moody, moody, moody. That is me.
Lest I sound like Debbie Downer, yoga has been awesome! No one has passed out. Well, that's not quite true. Today we did a guided meditation to a cd (Audra, it was Keelyn!) & the teacher specifically told us not to fall asleep. There was snoring all over the place. And I must admit to catching myself drifting off a couple of times. I highly recommend lunchtime yoga!
