I moved into my new workspace. I couldn’t situate things the way I wanted them because my part of the room just isn’t big enough. Still, it’s so much nicer than before. I took this photo and HORRORS!!! One of my girls had just been in to nag me about something and sat in that spare chair for a bit...and look at the photo – she violated my space! She left her brochure on my desk and her bag of popcorn on my printer! NEVERMORE!! Fair warning to all who live in this house!!! I ordered a bookshelf which should be arriving by the end of the week. Then I’ll have a place to keep books and stuff. I’m also still considering a floor lamp – the overhead lighting is not very pleasant. A big area rug would be divine!
I stopped wearing the bandage over my lip this week. It looks a bit scary, but I don’t care so much anymore. It’s not like I was ever all that beautiful. If I were gorgeous to begin with, I’d be upset about this new flaw. I always had a scar on my lip anyway – now it’s just a whole lot bigger. The doctor said it will continue to heal and improve for about 4 more weeks. We’ll see.
Work is nuts. Really nuts. I want to finish this dissertation and get out of that place - the sooner the better.
