Glass Half Empty or Glass Half Full?

Glass half empty or glass half full?

My beloved summer is over. Today I went to my classroom and started preparing for the new school year. Where did the time go? There are so many more things I want to do.

And that is where my mind is today. Thinking of all the things I want to do.

In fact, I made a list.

There are things I already enjoy: sewing, quilting, crochet, reading, snapping pictures, writing.

Some are things I want to try: embroidery, pickling and preserving, making sushi.

Other things I want to be taught: guitar, pottery, photography.

And then there is my sudden obsession with roller derby. I started watching it on public access and now I am hooked. I want to be a Derby Girl.

It muddles my brain. It overwhelms me. Because I know I am back to "finding time" and "squeezing it in". And I don't like that very much.

But, it is what it is.

To escape the impending demise of summer I have jumped on the bandwagon and started reading Twilight. Wow. I can see what all the fuss is about. It's just what I need right now.

Nothing like vampire romance to settle one's mind.
