...and miles to go before I spiel.

Sorry for the light posting/content of recent times.  In truth my schedule is woefully overpacked.  You might think I could have carved out an hour for bringing my blog up to speed during a 2 week vacation, but to do so would be to have a wrong idea: my vacation was packed with doing things like studying and trying to put my house in order prior to my big surgery, and no small amount of stress.

Work has been a bit rodeo these 6 days I've been back.  I'm hopeful that this is just a temporary thing-- it's been the most stressful ever.  A few hours back on the clock last Monday and I suddenly noticed the reappearance of a knot between my shoulder blades that I didn't miss during my two week vacation.  *le sigh*

A week ago I had a major exam in A&P II, but prior to the test, I got up early and took all 3 pups to the vet with the assistance of a rather under-the-weather Himself. [His turn with the vet the following day revealed he was more sick than the furballs. :( ]  I had to run off from the vet's office to class to take my test and to say I performed poorly grade-wise would be an understatement.  I am hopeful I can still pull a B in the class, but I've utterly revamped my study methods, including now meeting at least once a week with a study partner.   I'd love to blame my poor test performance on the very real concern for all my sick puppies, including the two-footed version, but I can't afford to give myself a pass.  Oh, and I will will will take at least 15 minutes every day for my guitar.  I'm progressing well on that score, but have missed more days than I've hit recently.

No belly dance this month, but hopefully for a few classes in November.  Or maybe not.  I have some wonderful plans to see dear friends at home and out of state in November, so that will no doubt set me aright. :)

Keep in mind the fact that I watch NO television-- my TV doesn't even get a channel, as far as I know.   I feel like I'm rushing from one thing to the other, and that there is little down time.  On a happy note, Sunday I had family mewvie night and Himself and the pups all curled up with me on the sofa to watch Dark Shadows (LOVE!) and the Fifth Element.  It was nice to just veg for a change. 

7 weeks from my surgery.  I'd like to get the beadboard up on the ceiling in the second bedroom before then.  And. And.  And.

I obviously enjoy (on some level) being overly-busy and rushing about quick like a bunny, but I'd like to feel that I'm in a state of choice about being an agent of chaos. More soon.

If you figure out how to get to the 'choice' part, let me know... sigh

A good one, but it is an acquired taste.

Don't you worry about our bread-and-circus-loving selves; we'll get our free ice cream elsewhere for awhile while you tend to bidness. And when you come back, so will we.

Take all the time you need. We'll be here when you return. Thinking about you and the puppies (2 and 4 legged).
