Restless Leg Syndrome

Ok, maybe it’s not just the legs that are restless but I am undoubtedly restless. In what may be a self-fulfilling prophecy, I predicted this time period to be the most frustrating for me and I was correct. I don’t know why but I suspect it’s because my destination is too close to be called a goal and yet too far away to do anything but wait. In short, I’m going a bit crazy.

There’s certainly plenty to do and so I try to stay busy. Unfortunately the tasks have become so repetitious that the monotony of routine only adds to the anxiety that I feel. At times like this I’m the most tempted to go out and wander the malls; I fight that temptation because that means I’ll probably end up spending money which is definitely the one thing I don’t need to be doing right now.

I’ve come extremely close [a few times] to buying a ticket to Zurich, Switzerland. Airfare is cheap right now and such trips are a good way to waste away a week or two. Unfortunately it’s also a good way to waste away a wallet or two. Every dollar I spend now is about 48 pesos I won’t have later – I try to keep that in mind.

Some time has been consumed playing World of Warcraft with Malachi; way more fun than it probably sounds. I used to play a lot of online games and being able to play them with your kid is absolutely amazing. Sad thing is, he’s better at them than me. I’m going to miss these moments while I’m away.

My writing as slacked off a lot lately – I just can’t seem to put myself in the mood to tap away the keys. I’m looking forward to the isolation I can find in places like Palawan so I can sit and type away without the distractions that are currently so abundant. 10 days and counting until I leave Texas.
