If patience is a virtue, I guess that means bad things for me. I can be and do many things. Being patient is not exactly at the top of that list.
Yesterday wasn’t so bad. I knew there was a chance I wouldn’t hear about either of the two things that are the Big Things of the Week yesterday. We had a very full school day which took my mind off of everything and all of us were away from the house last night doing various things (older girls had a choir dress rehearsal, the youngers and I went to a homeschool meeting because I needed to pick up our free Six Flags tickets for this year). So I didn’t think about things too much and even when getting home at 9:30 and hearing that we wouldn’t hear wasn’t too much of a disappointment.
Today things are different. We’ve not had as much school work to do and so I’ve been stopping by my computer every 12 minutes or so to see if there’s been any news. Oh, who am I kidding, I check in about every 9 minutes.
The rational side of me says I might not hear anything today either and I need to live today. I need to do laundry, take the girls to piano, finish my 500 verse pack order for Eagle Lake, live.
The irrational side of me can’t figure out why the world hasn’t stopped until we’ve heard what we need to hear.
We may need to leave the house soon just so I can walk away from the computer for a few hours.
