This disease is sort of like 1 step forward, 2 steps back. I had a day earlier this week that I felt really quite good for…the whole day. I think it was Monday. I didn’t overdo it because I knew I’d pay for it later. I just really enjoyed feeling decent for a change. Then Tuesday came along and shot that all to shit. And Wednesday continued with Tuesday’s agenda.
I feel like the world is tilted on its axis …. Leaning way to the left. It’s the oddest feeling. It reminds me of riding some whirly-spinning-uppy/downy ride thing at the carnival… you know, you ride it 3 or 4 or 12 times then later on when lying in bed you feel as if you are still on the ride? Yeah. Like that. Except it’s all leaning left.
I got called up to the school yesterday to buy a new t-shirt. It’s pink. They are getting ready for breast cancer awareness month so they’ve had the mascot plastered onto a pink shirt. I’m fine with it. I did, however, suggest that maybe they should consider another color as well…. like maybe a beautiful orange! Breast cancer is awful…terrible… I don’t wish it on anyone ever. But…. but… there are so many other causes out there that get pushed to the side or simply ignored in …. like MS. I must say , my orange shirt idea was very well received. Maybe in a few months there will be some orange Vela Sabercats shirts available…. that would be way cool.
There is rain coming our way… or so they say anyway. There is a hurricane in the pond just west of the great states. This storm is pushing rain our way! I would’ve never thought a storm over there would benefit us… I’ve been more inclined to watch the storms in the Gulf… either way, I’m grateful! The sky is all dark & stormy looking right now as I sit here looking out the window of the tin can (there’s more than one window just for clarification).
I’m going to pick up my birthday present today… it’s a bit early but that’s okay. Coach is buying me a camera bag! Yay! No more stuffing everything into my oversize shoulder bag. I’ve looked, tried on, fingered, & mauled a variety of bags over the past few months. I’ve settled on the Lowepro Passport Sling bag….
It’s comfortable, it’s big enough to hold my camera + an extra lens, a sketchbook, pens, wallet, cell phone, water bottle…. perfect! I’ll pick it up today so I can try it out this week. I have 2 football games & 2 volleyball games this weekend, as well as a portrait session. I can’t believe I’m actually getting paid jobs…. blows my mind really. Hopefully, all my pictures won’t be leaning to the left ha!
I must go nap now. Lots of napping will be done today and tomorrow morning. I find that I can make it through a game with some good nap time before hand. The nice thing is the games are spread out over 3 days…. tonight is JV football, Friday is varsity football… then Saturday JV & varsity volleyball (an hour each game). Sunday is the portrait session. There is plenty of room for napping & downtime in all these days.
I need a good Italian food recipe. This weekend for the coaches we are taking Italian food. I know how to throw pizza in the oven and toss up a pot of spaghetti.
