Ever look back on a day and wonder just that?
I hardly got out of my desk chair yesterday. I suddenly realized that my recent attempt to unify my keywording across 4 image collections and thousands and thousands of images could be simplified by temporarily bringing all four catalogs together into one and then re-separating them. I also realized just how inconsistent I can be; and once again I reinforced my dislike of categories.
But what’s a fella to do. If you wanna find something you have to have some organization. Goodness knows that expecting this lad to find something based upon year and month is an exercise in futility. Heck — I can’t place days and months in my curent life. Of course there’s nothing new about that. I have always had a tenuous grasp on time.
When my parents were alive and we all lived in the same apartment building (different apartments) dad would sometimes come over to my office asking for help for some task or another and I’d blithely say, “Give me 5 or 10 minutes, and I’ll be right with you.” On many occasions he’d return an hour, or two hours, or even as long as four hours later to say, “I thought you were going to help.” And in my mind I was still well within my 5 or 10 minutes. When I get to concentrating time ceases to exist. That other people continue counting time at such junctures simply confounds me.
And so it is that I worked all day, slept for 4 hours, got up and worked another 3 hours in the middle of the night and then went back to sleep for 3 more hours. I’d like to think that I was just eager to get back to my project. Truth be told I’ve been waking because of nightmares — something that has rarely happened to me ever — but I guess the tedium waiting on the school is just wearing on me. I can’t think of anything ELSE I’m stressed about, so I just mark it up to that.
On a positive note, Kathryn and Mel come over tomorrow to bake Christmas Cookies. A yearly tradition that may end this year; but then we said that last year anticipating a quick sale of the house. So, who knows.
But, we are all floured and buttered and sugared up, awaiting the arrival of our co-cooks. It’ll be fun. I suppose there’s a radio station that is already playing carols? Or don’t they do that any more. Wait…. do we have a radio we can listen to? Hmmm… Maybe UVERSE has a music channel dedicated to Christmas music. I’ll have to check.
