I got this idea from Darin at The Life of a Conflicted Teacher. I’m still overtired and bottomlessly sad and angry about Atlanta. I’m going to compartmentalize a bit, however, and set that aside. Those feelings are the constant under anything else I am feeling at the moment, but where else am I currently? Well …
Currently annoyed by
- My upstairs neighbor who might actually be the heaviest walker in the known world and who has twice woken me up when they’ve decided to move furniture in the middle of the night.
- My insurance company, which has randomly decided that a medication I’ve been taking for years will now have a copay that is almost 10 times higher than it used to be. My doctor and I are …
- … to figure out what medication I can swap in for the newly over-priced one. Feh.
- To decide if I want or need to get a new phone. Mine has hit its 2-year mark. The battery isn’t great these days, and there are some bells and whistles I might want in the new model. It works perfectly well, however, so maybe I push it out to 3 years?
- Picture Us in the Light by Kelly Loy Gilbert — I’ve read this book twice already. I recommended it to a friend the other day and decided I had to read it again.
- I’m Still Here: Black Dignity in a World Made for Whiteness by Austin Channing Brown
- The Shallows: What the Internet Is Doing to Our Brains by Nicholas Carr
- My new cozy-cozy pajamas with their ridiculous leopard print.
- That both my tax returns have already landed in my bank account.
- The color of the yarn I’m using in my latest gift project. At first I thought it wasn’t quite right, but now that I have a good chunk knitted, I’ve really fallen for it.
- For everyone who can to be vaccinated.
- For the chance to see my family again sooner rather than later.
- For my first sighting of forsythia, always my “welcome to spring!” harbinger. It’s still a little early, but I keep watching for it!
And that’s where I currently am. What about you?
