I swear…

I will write something today.  I have been so uninspired and in such a funk for so long, it’s stupid.

I’ve also been pretty distracted with the kitten and work and dental appointments of all things.

Mostly, I’ve just been in a funk, the kind of funk that comes on when I feel like I’m spinning my wheels, professionally, and that I need to be doing something else.  I never know what, exactly, until I ponder it for weeks or even months, and the funk usually shows up in spring.  I’ll get it figured out eventually.  The education system, though, is impossibly broken and I think I might be tired of trying to glue all the misfit pieces back together.

Also on my to-do list today is to finish reading The Catcher in the Rye for book club Wednesday, hit up the grocery store for a few provisions, and maybe buy a swimsuit since they’re on sale at Old Navy and the only one I have that fits is three years old (the tops keep getting too small).

I already made a loaf of whole wheat bread for the week.  (Smells delicious.)  I may make another small loaf of Italian later in the week because the one last Wednesday was unbelievably good for how easy it was.

I need to take that math test online and I need to help the husband study for the GRE.

But mostly, I need to get some writing done.
