It’s been..a week.
A really, really, really long, tiring, not-altogether-good week.
I’ve been trying to complain less, because I find it annoying when other people complain all the time. So that’s part of the reason I’ve been scarce lately. It’s been the kind of week where I don’t think I could have posted without complaining. Case in point, this post, already.
Alrighty, let’s just embrace it.
Bad: Tripping over a huge rock while playing Frisbee with my cousins last Saturday, twisting my ankle, and watching it swell to twice its normal size.
Good: Spending time with my cousins and grandmother.
Bad, bad, bad: Climbing a mountain with twisted ankle, cousins, and grandmother. Worse decision I’ve made in I-don’t-know-when. And I don’t know why I did it, except that I didn’t want to be left behind or wimpy. Dumb, I know.
Good: Getting all the rain we prayed for all last summer. I love the rainy weather.
Bad: Going back to school after spring break with sore foot, sore back, and sore throat. And a fever (didn’t know about that until after school/work Monday afternoon). Also bad: dropping the glass thermometer on the bathroom floor and breaking it. Thankfully it was a mercury-free one (what is in it if it’s mercury-free?)
Good: Spending Tuesday afternoon curled up in a quilt with a pretty good book, then making cookies that were gobbled down in class Wednesday morning.
Good: Am currently rereading The Secret Garden, and loving it much more than I did as a child.
Bad: Sitting on gym bleachers for six hours today at my sister’s baton competition.
Good: Watching my sister do pretty good at her competition.
Bad: Watching Helga (gosh-awful annoying girl) beat my sister.
Good: Naming the girls my sister competed against with my mom.
Good: Planning my next quilt.
Bad: Not having money to buy the fabric I want for my new quilt.
Good: Getting my bird-making kit from Alicia Paulson.
Bad: Not having time to make the birds.
Bad: Not having time to do the things I want to do, period.
Good: Going to compile a wish list of fabric I can’t buy.
Bad: Hitting publish without proofreading or adding a picture.
