Prednisone keeps me up at night.
I have energy for all kinds of things, but so many I don't dare do as I still become too winded.
So, bonus - I've been playing at my desk instead.
Late last night (or more accurately - early this morning) - I pulled out this old alphabetized binder. I'm a sucker for old notebooks and ledgers, and this is one that I had picked out of my dad's office before we turned in the keys. It's never been used, but his name is penciled in his familiar scrawl on the inside front cover.
I've tossed a few ideas around for this book for awhile, but last night landed on joining it together with another idea to consolidate some of my work snippets.
M for Memories. I frequently like to jot down the things the kids say that tickle my funny bone - but I've been writing them either on facebook or on my blog and I was itching to get them all in one place. I gathered a few of them here and I know I'm missing a few - but now they'll have this more tangible landing spot.
The beauty of this method of sorting is that should I want to use the M for something else, then I'll slide these over to Q for quotes.
P for pictures
R for Robotics
When I grew up, I lived around the corner from a retired elementary teacher. I used to love pouring through her photo albums and memories of her teacher days. She had her whole career chronologically placed in one magnetic album after another. She probably wouldn't prefer my method of sorting, but I never liked that she wouldn't hire a girl to mow her lawn, so we're even.
T for Thank You
G for a story that involved boys and ghost peppers
V for some Verse that I'm occasionally prone to scribble (and P was already taken by photographs, so I had to come up with something other than poetry)
I'll probably start an F for Favorites, because yes - I do have them.
It felt good to create and consolidate.
I should do it more often.
Preferably without the Prednisone.
