Four o’clock came really quickly. I dragged myself to meditation, but spent a lot of it nodding off. It was the same for the morning class, so I wrote down nothing.
I was very tired and very sore and I just wanted to go home. Or back to sleep. I had inquired about volunteering with that trail crew earlier in the week, but they weren’t going to be there today. It’s just as well. I wanted to do nothing but go home and go to bed.
I packed up and said my goodbyes to everyone and drove home. On my way home, I started thinking about my next big trip. I will be going to visit Frank on Thursday. I now found that I no longer looked forward to it. I even started to think of it as a chore, like something I had to do because I said I would. That’s nothing against Frank. I still like him and think he’s a good guy, but I’m short on money and seeing as I was no longer thinking about getting together with him, I found I didn’t feel like driving all that way and spending all that money on the trip. I guess I really HAD managed to shift my manner of thinking if I was able to look at my upcoming trip in this light.
When I got home I fell asleep. Throughout the day, I spent most of my time alternating between reading and napping. I was very sore and my body was just worn out with all of the work I did.
