Honestly, I am hardly able to think at all these past (days? weeks?). I also don't respond well to that kind of jangly energy that school has these days. E asked me why I like peace and quiet when I'm working. I said when I had very difficult things to figure out it makes it almost impossible with a lot of distractions. She was putting a binder yearbook together and complained that the "pages are printed wrong." I told her, "No, they're right, you just have to put them in the right way." She left and I finished the book, which was so completely screwed up in every possible way, that I can only recommend that E try a little peace and quiet next time. Even was disgusted.
I had jin shin this morning, then a haircut, then went to Traditions and bought 3 bracelets for the graduating girls. I am doing laundry now. I have a job for school that needs to be done, if they ever email me the information I need. Yesterday I did a job for A and another for L. I told A I had an hour, max -- she's good about folding her tent and silently stealing away when she sees I'm maxxed out. As usual my mantra is: just let me get through tomorrow...
I asked Frank about the public outpouring of grief for RR. He said people are sad now, and are afraid to express the grief for say, the war dead, and so they channel it into mourning Reagan. Looper had told me about 2 girls at her school who came in crying, just like the kids had been when JFK was shot. What's the matter? EISENHOWER has died, they sobbed. So the other day I called her up in mock tears and wailed, Reagan is DEAD.
