When I was in nursing school, almost at the end, my roommate and I hung a little tablet of post-it’s on the wall, marked with numbers, and tore one off every day until we got to ZERO!!!!!!! (Remember PP?)
When I was expecting my babies, I counted days down, eager to see their faces, meet them at last.
But now, as a grow up, I seem to have lots of countdowns going on simultaneously.
10 days til my course with Humber starts.
26 days until my next trip to Toronto.
47 days til I go to a cottage.
9 days til I go to my next meeting of the Halifax Ukulele Gang.
21 days til the Blue Nose marathon
Month and a bit til the MS walk…
Everything is exciting and something to look forward to, she says, splitting up her sentences in a way she will be unable to soon…
But my brain is crowded with conflicting priorities and thrills and spills. Time to focus.
Once Humber starts, I’m restricting my FB time to rare occasions as rewards for finishing goals. I’ll be writing my experiences with the course here, in case anyone is interested. I’ll be slowing down email responses and trying to check only 3 times a day – morning, noon, and night.
So forgive me if I seem absent… Just trying to push my brain into a focused box. It doesn’t fit as well as my cat does. (He’s been living in that box since it arrived a few days ago).
Wish me luck!
