Somebody put me out of my bibliophilic misery
Fixin' to have grad-school-level required reading, right?
I read and write and read for a living, right?
Ha ha, I just volunteered, ho ho, to review another book, hee hee, for a state journal!
Ha ha ho ho hee hee -- to the funny farm where life is beautiful all the time, they're coming to take me awaaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy!!!!!!
What it is is I was afraid if I didn't volunteer to do one before I got started with school, then my volunteerin' days would be over as long as I *was* in school. I've trapped myselfm, in other words.
It's time for you to learn a truth of the universe as we know it.
It is not possible for any of us to do all the things we want to do. It is folly to take on more responsibilities than we can reasonably handle.
Understand there are limitations in our time and space continuum. And some things simply have seasons during which they can be a part of our lives.
I've learned that with increased (and ridiculous) work hours, I do not have the time nor the energy to do the amount of volunteer work that formerly filled my days. So this is a season without that satisfaction. If I could figure out a way to have an eight-day week, I would have an extra day to fit that in.
But it ain't a-gonna happen.
who is laughing uncontrollably at the verification word, which is "scheds." Make one.
Adding, I suppose, that while I have managed to admit to step one, I have yet to move on to the whole "higher power" step 2.
Word verification is "mutes", which might mean something, but probably doesn't . . .
Let me help with you book problem. I'll bring my pickemup truck, back it up to your door, you fill it up with books and I'll drive it away. Problem solved. No books no distractions. No temptations. what i don't don't want I take down to Karen's place and donate.
No, don't bother to thank me. What are friends for anyway?
