My Whooshy Swirly Day

Here I sit... in silence... well, other than the swish, swish... whirl, whirl... whoosh, whoosh, I keep hearing in my ears and head. I feel like I'm on some kind of hallucinogen. You should see me when the phone rings... swish, whoosh, brrrring, whooooooooosh... What the heck was that? Oh yeah, the... whooosh, swishhhhhh, brrrrrring.... phone! Try to set laptop down... head is swirling... don't fall over Misty... whatever you do, Misty, do NOT drop this laptop... swishh.... whooosh. Then again, if you drop the laptop - the one that has left permanent burn marks on your legs... then, you may be able to convince others that you need a new one... swish... brrrrrring.... whoosh. WHAT the HECK? Oh yeah, the phone. Don't fall over Misty... steady now.

But, the best part of the day... oh yes, the best part was when the darling Hubs came in and informed me that he needed my help. Needed Misty-who-can't-hear-a-darn-thing-and-can-hardly-stand-up-let-alone-walk-straight's help. What did he need help with, you ask? Oh well, he needed my help putting the final pieces of steel on the roof of the house. YES - this involved standing out in the cold... with the wind whooshing and swirling around me... WHAT??? Oh, help you carry the steel. WHAT??? Oh, hold it down so the wind doesn't catch it and blow me away with it... that would be nice right about now. HUH??? Climb the ladder? UP to the ROOF??? Clear up there? You can't be serious! Oh you weren't... you didn't want me to just climb that long... whoosh... ladder up to the very top (thank goodness)... oh - you want me to have your drill in my hand while I climb that ladder, which happens to be missing a rung halfway up. Sure Honey, anything for you and our home :-)

I'm going to lie down now and listen to the ocean in my ears.
The college report, you ask? Oh yeah... that... Well, I'm almost starting it finished with it. I keep trying to figure out why I just don't seem to care anymore - I'm seriously considering not finishing my degree. I know it's stupid, but it's just how I feel right now.

Oh well, I'm just going to leave myself alone with my procrastination and the ocean. I'll talk to you tomorrow. Forgive me for not visiting all of you today. I'm afraid that I couldn't even hear myself think.

* In defense of my husband - he wasn't intentionally coming to ask for my help when he knew I felt lousy. He had no other choice, because we have no one else available to help right now. Besides, if someone else came to help, we would have to pay that person. That's the convenience of marriage - free labor ;-)
