I am too tired to write much. Hunkered down against the heat. Felt very slow thinking and sluggish. Forgot what I was saying in the middle of teaching a few times. Just completely drew a blank.
That must be what it feels like for people who don't like public speaking. I looked at the expectant faces and I had nothing. Luckily my students remembered what I was saying.
Don't think it is Depression related. Just distracted and hot. 95 degrees today. Several days into a heat warning. I am not built for this kind of weather. I am built to weather blizzards. My Scandinavian genes cannot adjust to this intemperate heat.
Crap. I am racing the clock. Don't want to back date the post for some reason.
My Grateful Crap: Watching Batman Beyond with my two older children. Playing in the hose and eating fresh strawberries warmed in the sun. Curbside recycling. Craigslist. Snuggling with daughter. Reading stories. Ebay: thank you for my DSLR. I feel like I have new eyes.
