Say a prayer with me this morning:
Please, please… let me walk like a person & not a chicken on this day. Please, please let me have a clear mind that allows me to understand the English language and the ability to connect thoughts, follow a conversation. Please, please… let me be my old self for a few hours. Please, please let the beast sleep on this day… this very important day… this day that will decide my financial status.
P.S. – I make no promises to you because I want to make no false claims or set myself up for failure. I just ask that you help me, sit beside me today, and give me a nudge every now & again if it’s needed. Thanks!
This afternoon is my job interview… I’m not anxious or nervous yet. That sorta scares me. I don’t want to be too confident because nothing is sure. I am good at what I do but this job will be something new & different for me. I like change. I enjoy learning new things… maybe this is why I’m feeling more excited than nervous… who knows.
Yesterday I started working on a drawing. I picked up a pen and made some marks on a clean white page. Finally. It’s been months & months since I’ve done that. I wanted to sketch something but that’s not what happened. Yesterday was more of the line art, doodle type thing. I’m still working on it. I’m taking my time with it. Maybe I’ll get it posted here in a day or two. We’ll see.
Coach hurt himself yesterday. He was working on his weight training (he’s going to compete in March so it’s pretty heavy training), doing the bench press, when he heard & felt a pop in his arm. Not good. Just above his elbow, there is swelling and tenderness. This morning there’s no bruising but the swelling remains. We are hoping for a simple strain as opposed to a jacked up tendon. The possibility of surgery would just suck right now. I don’t think that will happen though, the need for surgery. His arm is no worse this morning than it was yesterday – good signs! He’ll take a break from training for a few weeks in an effort to heal. Maybe his hip will have a chance to recover as well… it’s been bothering him since June.
We have a Christmas party tonight. No, I’m not hosting! Are you crazy?! We are attending.
