If I tell you that Jaybird is still at work, on his way to a second 14-hour day in a row, and that my own work has been so intense that today I plumb FORGOT we were closing early at 5 — thank goodness my student and the security guard were on top of things — well, you probably don’t need to know any more than that to understand how our week went.
Also, people keep dying, both people I was personally fond of, and also famous people whose work has helped shape my life. I don’t like it. (I realize it’s inevitable but I STILL DON’T LIKE IT. *shakes fist at heavens*)
With all that in mind, my hopes for the weekend are threefold:
- a break from all the dying for a couple days (at least for me and the people I know – I realize we aren’t really set up to just lay off the dying altogether. I might have to reread one of Pratchett’s books where Death is the protagonist; that usually helps.)
More pragmatically, I know we’re going to go pick out new upholstery for Jay’s beloved loveseat (that thing is older than I am), and also take his mom out to lunch. And I think that’s it? Which means that points 1 and 2 above seem probable, at least.
So… what’s on your docket?
