ALL THESE THINGS
Things I'm kind of worried about: getting pneumonia again from this head cold, whether or not my shoulder will get all busted up again from traveling, how to stop sounding like I'm 80 what with the pneumonia and busted shoulder

Things I'm kind of aggravated about: my daughter's insistence that I am lying to her about the fact that I have NEVER said certain things, the way my eyes get blurry when I look at my iPhone or iPad too long, the fact that I have to start wearing socks again (it's COLD)

Things I'm kind of geeky about: Where's My Water 2, word- and language-related facts and games, my Spotify playlist

Things I'm kind of quiet about: what I really think about certain people, things that worry me, all this stuff rattling around in my brain

Things I'm kind of anal about: re-reading all the books in a series before I can read the latest, keeping the same routines for morning get-ready and evening go-to-bed, checking and re-checking my posts for grammatical and spelling errors

Things I'm kind of clever about: convincing people without even trying that I'm much more social than I actually am, coming up with names for things, remembering people's names and often the names of their children too (though I never ever know what kind of car they drive, or even what color it is even if I've known them for years)

Things I'm kind of sad about: how fast winter is coming, how far away my family feels sometimes, my own lack of motivation

Things I'm kind of embarrassed about: the chair that collapsed with me in it, the fact that every time I eat I spill something (!) on my shirt, the fact that there are so many items for this particular list that I am too embarrassed to add to it

Things I'm kind of wistful about: the sugar beets on the side of the road (harbingers of fall), the flame-tipped maples, the neighbor's cat who comes to say hello and be petted and who hangs around sometimes for an hour or so but who always leaves again

Things I'm kind of proud about: the fact that my boss had to remove my numbers from the work statistics because I skewed them too much, that I get so much done each day I sometimes think I'll run out of things to do, that I've started walking at work with a colleague (only 15 minutes after lunch so far each day but it's a start)

Things I'm kind of spoiled about: my husband's cooking, my children's really excellent behavior (despite our battles), a job I love

Things I'm kind of happy about: the Kindle I would never have bought for myself, the shiatsu neck massager that I just gave myself for an early Christmas present, the things I'm looking forward to which include Thanksgiving both here and at home
