July 7, 2012 morning
I closed up my computer and ate some Hawkins cheezies, simply the best junk food going when I am feeling frustrated. Next on the task list was the job of applying an invisible shield to my cell phone to protect the screen. The instructions said to use water, and a squeegee. I have had this shield for three months but have not found a moment to put it to use. Voila, I followed the instructions and the shield is now on. Not a bad operation after all, but my sense of satisfaction is muted by the fact that it’s kind of useless all the same because there is no signal so the phone is not working. And the battery is dead.
There’s a dozen people laughing and having fun out on the lake, playing with a wild assortment of blow up toys, boats, and fiberglass canoes and kayaks. I’ve packed a million things but I don’t have any of those fun things and all of a sudden I feel a bit lonely. What am I doing, sitting here in the shade typing? I must go shopping I think. But then I realize I have only been here since 9:30pm last night and the nearest town is a couple of hours away. It would be good if I didn’t embark on another trip. I have worked steadily this morning, but I feel antsy now, like I should be doing something productive – heck, after you have been super busy for so long, how does one really relax?
