Gary, bless his heart, set up his old flatscreen for me today. It's indeed much easier on my eyes, although I had to rearrange my desk significantly to make room for it.
I'll be even happier when I get my new chair. My arthritic knee has been unhappy today, and my back's been acting up, too. Nothing that's kept me from functioning, but I'm really looking forward to getting the chair!
There's some hospital news, but I'm too tired to post it right now. I'll do that tomorrow.
My mission at the moment, should I choose to accept it, is to veg out by watching Scrubs (thank you, Netflix!) and eating popcorn.
Okay, here's today's discussion question. It's summer, and I'm not teaching. So why do I feel more busy, tired and overwhelmed than I do when I am teaching? My guess is that having to create my own schedule, rather than having one imposed on me by the workplace, ups the pressure. Whatever the explanation, I'd really love to find some way to be insanely productive over the next two months while also feeling relaxed.
And world peace would be nice, too.
