169// Close to Burn Out

Today I am grateful for:

  1. Air conditioning. I’m so grateful to my wife for putting in the new unit. It’s so hot out that the house is still quite warm, but bearable. If this heat wave had hit just a couple of weeks ago, we would have been miserable.
  2. Cat naps. I tried to read a little on the couch but before I could turn page two my eyelids were drooping and my head was getting heavy. I was out before I knew it, but 20 or 30 minutes later I felt well enough to get up and get moving.
  3. Tomorrow. I have no classes and though I won’t be able to take the day off as I had originally planned, I only have to attend a few morning meetings and then I can head home. I’m looking forward to the earliest day off I’ve had in weeks.
