Thursdays Tired

Well, I had started writing this journal entry in the afternoon. I mean I opened a new one up, but then I never got a chance to write it because I fell asleep, almost missed my dinner, but woke up just in time. Now I'm sitting at the kitchen table eating mini Charleston Chews at ten o'clock and pondering the view of the city. The lights are sparkly.

I'm house-sitting again, this time for a month while "my people" are off in Australia, out in the middle of nowhere. They lead such exciting lives. I've been catching up on the tv that I've missed, Glee, House, NCIS. Tonight I watched most of Community, some of 30 Rock and The Office.

I'm going back to school in January and I've applied to do early registration for classes because with so many people going back to college the classes fill up quickly. I don't know what I'm doing though so I'm going to make an appointment to see my advisor tomorrow. I need to order my contacts and get some backup glasses this time. I feel pretty good about moving out. I think writing that journal entry last night helped. It's funny, I had intended for it to be about how I felt like I was getting back to myself, getting out and doing more, exercising again, how I felt motivated, alive.

I needed to write that entry though. I needed to get it out of my head and onto the paper or screen. Awake is the song that even when it first came out I always associated it with this happening, me leaving the children I care for. Listening to it made me appreciate the time I had with them more and I always tried to remember especially when there were days when things weren't going well that I needed to be greatful for every moment I spent with them. So, thanks Josh Groban for writing that song. Awesome possum.
