February 1–Oh, How I Hope for a Reset!


Why isn’t life as easy to reset as a computer? Today is February 1, and I’m trying to figure out how to feel better after getting my shunt put in. I do NOT remember feeling this crappy when I was a kid and had surgery. Especially when the doctor claims I sailed through it–does someone who’s almost 49 years old sail through anything anymore? I feel tired. and my brain doesn’t want to work to do anything non-essential yet. What do I need to do to bounce back?

I’m trying to keep up with blogging, even though I know that I have nothing earth-shattering or even particularly interesting to say, because I believe this too will pass.

I saw something today that I can participate in that might challenge me in a non-threatening way to start reading again. Our local library is sponsoring a reading challenge, and I haven’t participated in one of these in years. For every 6 books a person reads, a snowflake goes on the library wall. Then on April 1, readers in 3 different age groups can be part of a drawing where they win gift certificates to Barnes and Noble.

I want my name on snowflakes all over that library! That almost sounds more fun than the gift certificates! I hope to be able to take a picture of that! It’s on, y’all!
