Victories, in Threes

1) This morning, in one hour, I made 66 cookies of the cinnamon oatmeal chocolate chip with walnut variety. Before work.
2) Yesterday, I both wrote my Morning Pages and exercised to my bhangra video at home for 40 minutes. Before work.
3) The day before, I delighted in a second viewing of the trapeze artist school that has popped up 10 minutes away from my house in the parking lot used by NY-DC buses. Nets and cables and everything- so random and so fun!
This is an effort to prop myself up from 1) Verizon the Devil Spawn screwing me over again 2) having to cancel my trip to NYC this weekend, messing up my schedule and 3) seeing the dentist and having him tell me that my lower wisdom teeth are actually coming in backward. I believe this to be incorrect and exaggerated. But we'll see.
I will have to come up with a lot more victories to fortify me this weekend, because next week I have an eye dilation (invasive), a teeth-cleaning (hygienist with no bedside manner), and who knows what else.
And I really have to choose my library movies more carefully, by the way. The last two viewed- Chinatown and Tess of the D'Urbervilles- were utterly depressing and not adventure stories as I thought they would be. Bring back Happy-Go-Lucky!

  1. Love the victories completed before work. It's so cool to hear that you're doing morning pages - you inspire me to start!

    Backward wisdom teeth, eh? That's even stranger than my having three wisdom teeth and not four. Ooh, eye dilation and teeth-cleaning in one week. I hope you at least get to wear those rockin' old-lady shades from the optometrist after your eyes get dilated.
