I am feeling grumpy and frazzled today. I got over 8 hours of sleep; I should feel better. Let me collect some thoughts before church.
--Last night we ushered in Daylight Savings Time. A time change always discombobulates me, no matter whether we're going ahead or back.
--This morning, I have spent much time comparing microwaves, trying to determine whether or not a convection oven feature would be worth several hundred extra dollars. I'm about to say no, but I don't want to make a decision while grumpy.
--Yesterday afternoon, I spent much time looking at drape possibilities. We also ordered the backsplash and the undercounter lights. It feels good to be making progress.
--Will this be the week we get countertops?
--I had a lovely morning yesterday with my quilt group, which meets much more irregularly than we once did. There is a soothing quality to stitching.
--I came home and finished How to Stop Time by Matt Haig--a wonderful meditation on aging and love. How would life change if a human life was many centuries, not many decades?
--I also got grading done and grades turned in for the class that ended before Spring Break.
So, let me feel good about what I've done. Let me get ready for church. Let me keep trying to keep calm and grounded and centered.
