I postponed my eye doctor’s appointment yesterday as well as my Mom’s doctor’s appointment. This gave me more breathing room for the day so that I managed to do all the stuff I had to do. I had to skip exercising so that I would have time to rest for an hour before my two committee meetings.
I am amused that I who so abhor committee meetings had two back to back last night. I even led most of the first one. Today I have my usual full day of classes and stuff. I got up late so I will have to abbreviate my blog to this short entry.
