Turning the Corner

I know. I’m really close to being done. Weeks away, even. Instead of having months ahead of me, I have months behind me. I can almost start counting the days until this whole damn thing could be over with.

So why does none of that help?

I suppose, if I really wanted to put it into an analogy (and this is MY website, so I can generally do what I like around here, so just sit back and enjoy) it’s kind of like having somebody beating you up, all the while telling you “It’ll be over soon, don’t worry. Just a little bit more.” It’s not very comforting at the time. That’s all.

I’m working on being more positive, though. I’m forcing myself to leave the house more than usual, and I’m even starting to gear up to go back to work and resume some kind of normal life. It is just a matter of time. There’s the issue of my “birthday” party which will be delayed to accommodate the results of my final CT scan, so keep your mid-October weekends free…ish. We’re looking for themes or suggestions.

So yeah, I know it’s going to be over soon. Just try not to remind me how much further I still have to go, OK?
