I hand-delivered the signed contract extension to my agent’s office yesterday. Now we wait…tick tock tick tock. Keeping busy helps the time go by. Here are some great ways to stay busy:
1) Fix your broken pleated shades. This is actually going quite well – hubby has fixed 2 with 2 more to go, and no apoplectic fits so far :o)
2) Research which way to run a wood flooring pattern…did you know that the standard practice is to run it in the direction in which you enter the main door of the house? I guess we’ll be running the pattern from front to back.
3) Take an exercise class – the pain will take your mind off the waiting. I started Pilates with K again…I’m doing OK, but it’s a real “stretch” for me at times, in more ways than one. At one point yesterday, my instructor Gina was telling me to get on my knees on the reformer platform, then take one foot and put it on the raised foot bar, and then slide the platform back by straightening out the one leg, kind of a modified split. Now, there are some mornings where I am so stiff that just getting my shoes on is a real chore. So I looked at Gina and said, “I don’t think I can get my body into that position.” She encouraged me to try it, and whaddayaknow, I did it!
4) And last, go get your eyes dilated at the retina vitreous specialist and pay them a $30 copay so that they can tell you that they still don’t know what’s causing the blind spot in your left eye, and make an appointment to go back in 6 months and do it again. :o)
