We have some exciting things coming up for our family. None of them is happening right this minute. These things are all that are on my mind. Everything I am doing right now, from grocery shopping to painting my toenails is in preparation for the upcoming excitement. It’s really consuming me. I can’t figure out if this is a good thing or a bad thing.
I am investigating these things on the internet. I am thinking of these things when my children try to talk to me and ten minutes later I respond with, “Now what were you saying?”, because my brain does not immediately return to the vicinity once it has wandered off.
I’m finding it exceptionally difficult to pick a topic to write about. I want to write about these upcoming “things” but then what will I write about later? Anyway, if I have to be in suspense, I think it’s only fair that you have to be in suspense too! .nods. So I was thinking, “It’s Friday, I should just pop in and say hello but I don’t want to say hello I want to say things but I can’t say things yet because I am waiting.” It feels exactly like it sounds.
I’m waiting. I’m trying to do so patiently. I’m really not very skilled at patience. It’s harder than it looks! When I have exhausted every link, every video, every idea for the things each day, I just kind of sit and wonder what I am supposed to do with myself now…while I’m waiting.
I’m told that waiting is the “journey” part, and the part that should most be enjoyed. The anticipation is the prize because often the thing itself is over in a second and then you miss the anticipation. But the anticipation is making me antsy. It’s all I want to talk about, all I want to think about, all I want to do. I’m worn out from all the waiting! And I still have quite a bit more of it to do.
This reminds me of the Disney World commercial where the little boy exclaims, “I’m too excited to sleep!” I feel your pain, little boy. One exciting thing I can share though, is that I bought a “Cool Temp” pillow that always stays cool. So at least now, while I’m lying awake at night, overcome with excitement and a brain that won’t calm down, I don’t have to worry about my head overheating. How cool is that? Get it? Cool? Yeah, anyway…
Oh well, I guess if you need me, you can find me over here…waiting. I’ll give you all the awesome details soon. In the mean time, I’ll keep you waiting. … … … … See, it’s hard!
