Ode to the Liberry

That's right, LIBERRY. Yes, I majored in English and I still say Liberry (as learned from my high-school creative writing teacher). Deal. I love my liberry...because I spend FAR LESS money there than a bookstore. Although there are some genres of book just not carried by public entities: time for a DBC (Dirty Book Club) meeting with the girls to exchange books, I think.

'tis on my mind because I have books due tomorrow...books I normally would've whipped through and returned within a week, if my life wasn't so mental at the moment. Teaching 2 bellydance classes, cleaning up after minor remodeling of our kitchen cabinets, and an ailing dog have sucked up 90% of my time.

WHY do I have burning urge to write when I'm so fricken busy it's hard to carve out 15 minutes to sit down? Two book ideas are clobbering each other daily in my brainpan, vying for supremacy, and I've had too much crap going on to give either the proper attention. So perhaps I should be working on one of them, instead of dumping random thoughts here today.

Mental Cobwebs

I'm in dire need of a file cabinet for my mind, and some serious internal housecleaning. Unfortunately I haven't heard of Merry Maids for your mind, so there you go.

Sunday Night Blues

Between spending too much money over the weekend (big shocker: that's nothing new for us) and attempting to put my house back in order (which, another shocker, still isn't done)...well, let's just say I need a nap. Or a vacation. Or just more than one night of no-nightmare, no stress, sleep in a row.

So Monday morning is immenent, I'm behind as usual, and the thought of getting up to work is rather overwhelming.

I have a tentative run/walk and writing schedule worked out for the week, because focusing on how much I hate my job is only making it harder to deal with, so it's time to put my energies into something more positive.

The Blackberry Preakness

WOOHOO Mine That Bird...go go go! I didn't know until today that crackberry is now the main sponsor of the race. Weird: something about that just doesn't strike me as classy enough for a Triple Crown race. But I do think it's about the coolest thing ever that a 50-1 horse co-owned, trained, and ridden by the same guy won. I love that the owners showed up in a pickup and run down trailer. I love that the underdog won...I just hope they can go all the way: I'd like to see a triple crown winner in my lifetime.

I should be planting my new flowers while runnign the dishwasher today (still trying to make headway into the mess resulting from cabinet refurbishing). But instead I'm watching a $9,500 gelding's biography...I can't help it. He's awesome.
