i see my neat schedule falling apart into a pile of crumbled blocks

January 24, 2007

So, yeah, this blog is just going to become really boring. I am SWAMPED this semester. Thankfully, it looks like a few of my commitments are going into dormant mode for a couple of weeks–while a couple of others go into overdrive–but there are some things I am doing this semester that seem to be constant and, worse, unpredictable. I don’t like unpredictability. I need to know, for instance, if I’ll be able to get home by a certain time on a certain day, and this semester I have at least one thing going on that is often scheduled like this:

Person: So, K, you’re going to work on this. Let’s meet this afternoon about it, OK? See you then!
Me: …but I have to get home and feed the dog…
Person: Oh, and then we’ll need to schedule another meeting on Monday, right after your class, and I don’t know how long that will take.
Me: …but I have to get home and feed the dog…

It’s amazing how much of my life is constrained by needing to get home and feed the dog. But, in fact, I have a dog, and I love my dog, and coming home to his happy wagging tail makes my day most days. Mr. Angst and I carefully crafted our schedules this term so that he is never home too long by himself, and so that neither one of us bears the burden. So if I keep getting scheduled for things without my input, things will get very messy with that carefully crafted schedule. You know?

Sigh.

    F’rills, though. Why don’t people realize that dogs? Must be walked. No, I have to go walk my dog! How would you like to hold it in for eight hours? Yeah, no.
