It’s the little things

In my rush to get out the door to take mom to the airport for her big family reunion trip to Texas, I forgot to wash my hair. It’s really put a damper on my day. I have dirty hair and it’s sad. My scalp itches just a little. It’s disgusting. I’m sure nobody noticed, which is nice, but it’s still just not right.

I’ve been staying up too late and working too hard. I’ve been neglecting the little things that make life good, like playing with my son, kissing my wife, reading magazines and books (it’s been two months since my birthday and I still haven’t finished Emergence), writing things for this site, surfing my favorite blogs, feeling relaxed at all. I pace when I’m not doing something, and feel like I’m missing something when I am doing something. I’m always running somewhere, whether I’m sitting or standing.

But, in good news, I just found out (after writing the first paragraph) that I’m getting a shiny new Powerbook from work! It’s the not the brand new ones, but it’ll do. It’s coming tomorrow, and the best part is that I had no idea it was on its way! I wasn’t even sure it was going to be approved! Now I have a reason to come in tomorrow…
