Burying my head in the sand

The more time that passes between posts, the harder it is for me to think of something to say.

I am so busy, busier now than I've been so far this semester. A lot of my bigger projects are coming due for school, and I'm training and hiring a crop of temps for the coming "busy season" at work. I can't get any work done while I'm at work, so when I get home from class at night instead of working on schoolwork, I'm working on work work. And I don't like like it. (Is that from The Wonder Years?)

Today was the last day of my suburban placement, but because of the chaotic nature of my urban placement I still have 6.5 hours left to clock there. To say that I am less than thrilled would be an understatement.

It's registration time and I don't even want to think about how I will coordinate my classes next semester with a reasonable work schedule. For now I am taking the ostrich approach and ignoring it altogether.

I'm also taking that approach with the upcoming Thanksgiving holiday. If I ignore it, maybe it won't happen. So far I'm thinking it just might be me and the parade and the heck with the rest of the world. Sometimes I think being a hermit sounds like heaven.

Enough of this; I have to take out the trash.

Just remember, when you bury your head in the sand you are leaving you butt wide open. You will get the shaft before you know it. So SNAP OUT OF IT. Unless you like...

LOL! COffeypot is right on the money sometimes.

But I am often with you about the hermit thing.

When you live alone you make your own choices and do what you want. I guess it's selfish, but sometimes I just WANT to be selfish!

We had one thanksgiving and have at least two more to go.

I lived alone for 20 years and it's still hard getting used to having other people to consider.
