there are worse things

than being addicted to nail polish and boots. worse things like spilling a glass of wine on your laptop keyboard and realizing that you haven’t backed up a single page of your Ph.D. comprehensive exams in 6 months and having a minor (major) meltdown while your husband attempts to assure you that not all is lost and that yes: you are a total idiot for being so irresponsible. (my words, not his.)

thank god i’m married to someone with infinite patience for a clumsy gal like myself. (in the spirit of continuing my clumsy/bike accident/broken elbowS year, i’ve falling up the stairs about 3 times, slammed my knee into my desk and my other knee into the door, stepped on the cat, and dumped a full glass of wine on my laptop in the span of 6 days. i made a new blog category: the adventures of calamity jane, aka: me. although i’ll admit that the real calamity jane didn’t seem all that clumsy but a total bad-ass cowgirl.)

postings have been light this week because i’ve been without my laptop and i’ve been trying not to have a meltdown about it. 48 hours of no school work: sounds like vacation to most, but is more anxiety-inducing than i expected. i just got my laptop back tonight from the apple store, still broken. waiting for a part to replace my keyboard. at least it’s only the keyboard that died.

Erin posted this shirt from rockwell today. i think i should buy it for C so that he can give it to me. because this is my clumsy life right now:

p.s. i am glad i can say it was my first glass of wine, so it wasn’t a tipsy accident. it was just me, being the complete klutz i am. who knew i would grow up to be so awkward. i’m chalking it up to my ability to get excited about silly things and rushing too much. need to S L O W down.
