Day 11 truth: today I am feeling inadequate. I am having a hard time focusing. I feel hopelessly behind in my reading for school, but I cannot seem to sit and read. The words swim before me on the page and I cannot tell you on page three what was on page two. I try to calm down, to focus, to relax, and I start again and it gets as bad. Then I find myself seeking diversions, things to do that aren't schoolwork, but that there is an urgent need to get done immediately. Urk. OK, going to make supper and try again. I have GOT to get caught up.
These are the ramblings of a cranky, middle-aged lesbian building contractor on the coast of Maine. I am opinionated as hell and argumentative most days. I like to cook, build things, opine about politics and the state of the world, and occasionally sew. I dabble in welding and would like to be better at it than I am. I am patient only as long as I am so inclined and have nothing else to do. I am often wrong, but never in doubt. I hold the world and myself to unreasonably high standards. You might not like it. Too bad.
Some of what is in this blog is probably inaccurate as hell. My memory is faulty. I try my best, but mistakes will be made. If my version of events does not exactly match your memories of those events, get your own blog and write about it there.
