Today was a good Saturday. Sterling and I got along pretty good today. My emotions bounce back and fourth on marriage. Some days I am very ready to bail, most days in fact. Others, I know it's a struggle and isn't supposed to be easy. I do love him. Love is hard.
I felt good when I woke up today. Did a few loads of laundry and cleaned the kitchen. Why are men so turned on by women doing the dishes???
I was able to relax and watch some DVR shows. My back started hurting intensely after my morning chores. Osteoarthritis is a bitch. I found a heating pad which provided a little relief. Tried to take a mid day nap, one of my favorite things in the world, but pain wouldn't really allow it.
Friday I turn 40. I tell myself it's no big deal, but part of me laments.
The following Monday I start my first graduate level class. I am neither excited or nervous about it. I don't know why. It just seems like the next move to make.
Work is "meh". My biggest issue is the low wage. Trying to get the initial tenure in so I can post out. I am aware of the many good things about my job, and am so grateful to even have one.
Signing off for now. Clean sheets and candlelight are making me sleepy.
Come here sleep, you sexy beast.
