stuff on my mind

*School's been kicking my ass the past few days. Thus, when I just took a look at the explosion in my reader, I wanted to cry. Why can't I find balance? Why, why, why, why, why am I so incapable of this?!!

*I really, really want to make this bed.

*Staci is beyond awesome. I know that's already a well-known fact, but sometimes these things just need to be repeated.

*I promised myself I would NOT check any books out at the library today. Forgot that I had put one on hold though. After one...well, what's a few more, right? (This is what came home with me: Skin: A Natural History by Nina G. Jablonski (the one I had on hold), Between XX and XY: Intersexuality and the Myth of Two Sexes by Gerald N. Callahan, Goodbye, Chunky Rice by Craig Thompson (which I had out not long ago but didn't get around to reading), A Breath of Fresh Air by Amulya Malladi).

*I sometimes send people really stupid e-mails. Sorry, Ana.

*I really need to shut up and get a few more "school things" done so I can watch Criminal Minds.

*Just overheard Max say: "Dad, you should really be ashamed of yourself!" No idea what he was talking about, but it made me giggle.

  2. *huge, engulfing hugs to you* (And I owe you an e-mail!)

    I really want that bed too. Bookmarking it for when I move out, lol.

    Your library books all sound SO good. I'm off to look them up, and I'll probably end up putting them on hold. And did I mention I got like 30 books/DVDs from library yesterday?! Which brought my total to 77?! And I STILL put holds on several books today?!

    I hope that my folly makes your library guilt pale by comparison. :P

    Love you Debi!

  3. You know, I don't think balance exists. And those who say they have balance? I don't believe them. :)

    That's a lot of books checked out! We went to Borders tonight and I told myself I wasn't going to buy any books. But I did. But it was The Odessey, so I figured that was OK. It's always OK when it's a classic.

    Criminal Minds, huh? I'm an SVU girl.

  4. You're too hard on yourself, dear! Balance only exists as an average. We tilt one way sometimes and the other way othertimes.

    It is a nice bed. :-)

  7. Oh dear Debi. You sound really frustrated. I understand your feeling of wanting balance. I feel like I am on a permanent catch up cycle. This week I have had to write so many lists of things that need doing. I am tired, but I just keep going. I never realised being a parent would be so damn hard.

  8. Love that bed...gives me all kinds of steampunk-ish ideas for furniture making.

    I imagine we all should be ashamed of ourselves at one time or another, LOL! ;)

  9. Debi, you are wayyyyyyyyyyyyy toooo hard on yourself! I'm learning too on how to be easier on myself. I tend to do that for others but not myself. My library gals love it when I check out books and aren't very concerned when I bring them back unread and then check out a million more...job security!!

    I don't use Google Reader!! I try to visit the blogs that I really enjoy and catch up with others throughout the week. Google reader would make me weep!!!
