I did two nerdy things the other day.
1) I made a chart of all the things I wanted to remember from the book The UltraMind Solution.
2) I made a chart of all the books (that I could think of) that I have read, am reading, and want to read in the future.
My inner life felt so organized by my doing those two things.
Feeling All My Emotions Since 1985.
All Is Well That Ends Well.
I can see you.
Sitting there in that seat.
Looking at this screen.
And I know you’re wondering…
How much does Eva work per week?
Well, young lady, I am here to solve that mystery. This is a list of the hours I have spent for each of the past ten weeks. My company considers certain activities “productive,” so you have to add 10-15 of each number below to figure how much I actually work per week.
I am hoping that there are going to be some shorter days in my future.
First came Laffy Taffy, then came Blow Pops, now here’s Milk Duds.
I am wishing so much today that I had a piano. If I had one I would work all day on learning this…
Long time, no see.
Let’s see… do I have anything to say?…
I play Ultimate.
I play soccer.
Such-A-One is the Shiz Whiz.
Working 60+ hours a week again, but hopefully only until August-ish.
Oh, ran into Pickle Man the other day. Totally random.
Playing with kids 25 hours a week, and by “playing” I mean: playing, breaking up fights, encouraging good behaviors, providing consequences for bad behaviors, playing lots and lots of baseball and basketball, high-fiving, dancing/showing my “moves like Jagger,” etc.
I’m watching the Lord of the Rings movies a lot lately.
Going to spend the weekend with Best Friend R, Her Husband, and Such-A-One at a lake in a few weeks.
I eat a lot of fruits and nuts.
I think a lot about swimming.
… is green. But more specifically and currently, seafoam green. I have ridiculous love for this color.
I keep tabs on my fears. I keep tabs on how realistic they are, the likelihood of them happening, and from what direction.
As is typical in life, at times I run right into a fear. It pops up in front of me clear as day, out of the blue. That is the point at which point I realize I am not *that* afraid, because amid my surprise I still see clearly what I can *do* in that situation.
It’s like, “Oh, hello there, thing I’ve been scared of all my life. You know, up close you don’t look as horrible as I thought. In fact, I think we can work this out. You may be just what I needed.”
And I feel filled with hope and love.
