Feels like there is too much in my head right now, too much I need to do. I’m having trouble focussing, my mind keeps straying to all the other things waiting for my attention.
I have a 2000 word essay due next Saturday, and I’ve written less than 500 words of it.
I need to talk to somebody about possibly retiring from my position as creator on the Discworld MUD. I do enjoy it, but I just never seem to find the time for it these days.
I need to call a paediatrician and get Evelyn’s small anterior fontanelle checked out properly.
I’ve been thinking about seeking treatment of some sort for my arachnophobia. The things I do as a matter of course to avoid spiders, the things that automatically go through my head, can’t be normal.
I need to get some more driving practice in, possibly in the form of professional lessons again.
I was reminded yesterday that I’ll have to start thinking seriously about kindergartens and schools for the girls, especially Elspeth.
Then there’s dietary things. Aidan and I are both trying to be a bit more careful about what we eat, and he has to avoid lactose and I have to avoid gluten, and I have to get both girls fed nutritiously – one of them is only just starting solids, and the other is a fussy eater.
Sometimes I just want to hide in bed forever.
