Absence did make the heart grow fonder when it came to my craft lecture notes. I hadn’t looked at the document in about a month, afraid of how my fragile emotional state might impact the revision process, but when I looked at it today, with a pair of fresh eyes, I was pleasantly surprised by how well it hung together. The major problems, as my advisor had noted, were with the tone. And those were easily cleaned up, which made for a much more pleasant day than I’d originally anticipated.
With my lecture revision out of the way early in the day, I found plenty of time to sit around and do absolutely nothing. Stef and I did get out for lunch, and to do some clothes shopping for her, but, other than that, I spent most of the day in front of the computer, goofing off. I said to Stephanie that, if I could make money on inventing new ways to waste time, we would be millionaires.
I listened to some of the Sox game in the car on the way home from lunch and watched the last three outs on TV. Baseball is such an appropriate game to watch on a lazy summer day. It’s amazing to me that I’ve gotten through so much of my life without it. I laid on the bed and watched Foulkie get us out of the thing with our hides intact and I had to smile at my slothfulness.
Giving Stef the shot tonight even turned out to be a lazy affair. Aside from the fact that it’s growing ever harder to draw the medicine out of the emptying bottle, the whole thing has become rather routine. She ices it up, I stick it in, and then we take turns massaging the injection site.
Ah… what a lazy day. I think I need a nap now.
