Feelin’ Ranty

I’ve just been in a bummer mood today. My weekend started out good, going out with Mike and Erin last night. I woke up this morning and went to the RS humanitarian project where I sewed baby sleeper gowns. But when I got home…it was homework time. I know I’ve got less than two weeks to go this semester, and it’s stressing me out bigtime. I’m neck-deep into my critical writing class, and I’m way too critical of my own writing. So after I finished the assignment I was on, I decided to go to the gym. I went on the eliptical for 30 minutes, and after six weeks of “no exercise” doctors orders…it made me feel yucky. I left with crampy muscles, sweaty body, and a little dizzy. Then I came home to answer a cascade of HS reunion emails. I’d voluntarily agreed to help out with the reunion this year, but it’s becoming a burden to coordinate. I have a few people willing to help, but I’m having a hard time delegating because it requires a lot of thinking to give direction. I’ve been linking up other MHS graduates on the reunion blog, and as I’ve read through those blogs…I’ve indirectly found negative feedback on the plans that have been decided. I figure in the last 3 months, I’ve put in 25 solid hours of emailing, researching, updating the blog, etc. I’m feeling a little taken advantage of…but it’s self-inflicted because I agreed to help. *sigh*

Taylor decided to take on a tougher schedule this month, because the high-speed schedule only allows you minimum monthly pay. Finances have been dreadfully tight, so it’s a good financial decision. But I’ve been savoring those hour-and-a-half evening together times (between when I get home from work and he leaves for the airport). It’ll take some getting used to.

But in happier news, Michigan is abloom in tulips, daffodils, crocuses, and other spring flowers. The leaves on the trees are sprouting and the “popcorn trees” are full of white and pink blossoms.
