I have all but abandoned this blog, lately.
There has been a lot on my mind, on my calendar, and on my desk. I want to apologize to all my friends who I have not emailed in way, way too long. Sometimes I lose track of time, and then I look at the time stamp and see, Whoa! That's from two months ago! And I still haven't responded!!
I've become lax with the general social courtesies and just plain cultivating friendships. I will do better! And if I still haven't emailed you by Tuesday, you have permission to smack me.
Someone with a "Restricted" number keeps calling me. When I answer, they hang up. When I don't answer, they leave a voice message of high-pitched giggling. Not even lying. Sadly, you can't blacklist an "unknown" number. Gaahh.
All that said, today was absolutely brilliant. I admit I was getting frustrated with just about everything this past week, so I packed a lunch, grabbed my camera, notebook, and calculus papers, and headed to the park.
It was surprisingly cool for the middle of summer, and there was a lovely breeze throughout the time I was there. Best yet: there was no one at the park except for me. At one point, a family of four rode their bikes around the trail, but I only heard them for a while and they left fairly quickly. I left feeling very refreshed and un-annoyed.
And now, so I can perpetuate that un-annoyance, I will get a good night's rest.
