I'm So Full Of It
While taking a nice warm shower this morning and acetaminophen, hoping that the migraine would leave me, I came up with a blog post idea. I thought I'd tell you all a bit more about myself.
I really am full of it. No, not shit though there are days that I get constipated that one would think so. But I am full of knowledge. I just can't access it like I want to due to the fact that I have fibromyalgia.
J will be leaving soon and I need to find one project in particular that will occupy most of my lonely time. When J left for basic training through the time he was on an isolation tour to Korea for a year, so that would be 1.75 years all told, I had my online shop to keep me busy. When J was deployed to Iraq I took a class. This time I'm not so sure what I'm going to do to keep myself busy. I've been given quite a few suggestions and I have a few ideas of my own but some of the projects will eventually bore me.
Now as for what I did during the last deployment to keep me busy. I took a year long theology class and became a certified deacon. That's right folks I could perform marriages, baptisms, and death rites oh and probably start my own church but that is way too time consuming.
I could probably, if I had the gumption take the chemistry class that I neglected to take in college the first time around. I do have a B.S. in English which sounds odd because most folks get a B.A. in English. Why the B.S.? Well its because I took the following classes: Medical Microbiology, Microbiology, Anatomy and Physiology, Immunology, Immuno-heomotology, Geology, Ecology and the required freshman year two semesters of biology. So yes that is why I earned the S of the B.S. Now I know enough to annoy most of my doctors and they have asked me on more than one occasion where I had my medical training. Its not really medical training but more like life experiences of being clumsy that have earned my knowledge as I do have memory recall issues due to the fibro fog. Or perhaps my doctors are implying that I don't know Jack and are quite tired of me telling them that I know my body better than they do, case in point, yesterday when they didn't think I needed to come in and that if I just took two Tylenol and called them in the morning I'd be better.
This deployment I'm thinking of more short term classes than anything more demanding. I'm thinking that I'd like to take a class in glass blowing. I might take a class in pearl stringing as I do have two strands of pearls that are broken and the equipment to fix them but no real knowledge of how to do it all properly without make a huge mess.
If you have any suggestions on what might occupy my time let me know. I'm not one to spend all day on the computer wasting my life on video games while I wait for my spouse to get home. No, I'm one of those gals that has to keep busy so that the lonely hours don't creep up over me and strangle me when I'm not looking.
