I’m not the biggest fan of the week between Christmas and New Year’s.
In many ways, it’s a wasted week.
Today I finally return to visits with Paul Newman and I sure need to see him.
Last night I had dreams/nightmares of “someone” trying to fix my arm.
They kept trying, and trying, but it wasn’t getting better.
(Sort of like the reality of my last eight years?)
I woke up multiple times during the night, but I kept falling back into the same dream/nightmare.
I think it was because my arm was hurting a lot, and my mind just incorporated the pain into my unconscious thought process.
(For some reason my arm hurts worse at night when I’m in bed. I hear this is true of many shoulder injuries.)
Anyway, it might take a few weeks of regular visits to get me back to my version of normal,
But, I’m more than ready for Paul Newman to work his magic.
I also have one vague goal/resolution I’m going to start working on.
My daughter and I agreed we’d both put a little more effort into dressing less-slobbish at least one day a week.
I know that doesn’t sound like much of a goal, does it?
Especially since I make my living by crawling around on the ground (or climbing up on top of rocks) to take photos.
But, the plan is not to dress up NICE, really –
Just to dress a little less sloppily.
Surely, I can do that?
Today, I’m also going to track down a new battery for my FitBit Zip.
It’s been sitting in a drawer with a dead battery for at least two months.
Since the last two weeks were a free for all of food and drink,
I figure I better get back on track with my “normal” routines.
Sheesh … sometimes I wish I’d just stop nagging myself.
