Wherein She Whines Like an Elementary School Orchestra

Things of which I was recently reminded:
  1. The Learning Curve is a stern master, a beast lurking just over my shoulder. Condescending yet well-mannered, she breathes heavily and chuckles in a raspy tone. I am her bitch.

  2. I hated geometry in high school and I hate it even more as an adult.

  3. If one does something well once, it is twice as pleasing to do it over again the right way.

  4. The health insurance industry in America is a joke. But not a funny one.

  5. In four shorts days, my life will be put on hold and I will disappear for nine days.

  6. Balance between duty and desire is a fantasy.

  7. Nine days. I don't even want to mention where I'm going or what I'm going to do when I get there because it sounds self-aggrandizing. The lovely bubble bursts when I reveal the truth: I just want to stay home.

  8. I spent the last three years learning to love my time being my own only to have reality laugh in my face as familial responsibility reminds me such freedom is but a grand illusion.

  9. I feel guilty whining. But does it stop me? Not here it doesn't, no ma'am. Not here.

Oh puh-LEEZE! We have blogs so we CAN whine (and joke, and vent, and mourn, all like dat).

It's cheap-ass therapy.

Exactly, if you can't whine on your own blog, where can you?

Nowhere, says I.

But the whiny posts are the best ones! So whatcha doin'? It's not a nine day yard sale is it??

Geometry? Aaaaaiiieeee!! Run, run far and run fast!

Please tell me you're not going to math camp. I might have to do an intervention.

Hang in there. This, too, shall pass. In the meantime, whine away (and eat chocolate, I've found it helps).

Jeezie creezie, you say whining like it's a bad thing. I've made a career out of it. *lol*
