today was spent on the road, hitting the SLE & the BKE and back and forth 3 times, to move some stuff. it was a good time of just driving and being quiet, nothing quite like that to clear the head, afterall whenever i am uber stressed out or feeling over-stretched, i do enjoy these long drives.
today gave me time to catch up with various people also like the pavi and the wife, as well as candy cane & my penpal (haha, yes, its a funny story, you should ask me about it). talked to the pavi about these crazy days & nights i lead and sought comfort in knowing she understands. the wife and i caught up about this that and whatever. she never fails to make me feel rooted and re-grounded (not the the you-cannot-go-out-way). candy cane was a darling as usual and boy oh boy am i glad i’m done with school. danson, however is busy mugging his brains out for his finals.
am in a funk, truly am, and i think today made me feel a little sorry for myself.
i am tired, and while i am no longer physically tired ( i was in bed at 9 pm last night and refused to move till after 10 am this morning), but i’m weary. and i catch myself now, thinking how much worse it is for tinkerbel who has to smile at people all day, or those that have to keep 2 or 3 jobs just to keep the family going. then i think about the sacrifices the people around me have made for me, and a little voice screams, and says “suck it up and just deal with it”
one foot in front of the other.
i am still going.
and i should be thankful.
