If you were wondering, I was brave on Friday because I drove mum’s van to Nanaimo from Duncan. This was brave because I don’t like driving, and then brave on another level down because I haven’t driven around Nanaimo very much. Or at all. Well, once in 1999 maybe. And that I “don’t like” driving doesn’t really sound like a good excuse, as once I start I rather don’t mind. It’s more that I become overly anxious when the prospect of driving is before me. But this was a volunteer mission. I visited Naomi to see her in a play. And it all went well, since things I am anxious about usually turn out that way. I even got to drive Naomi around in a helpful manner, to look at shoes. I suppose, and I didn’t think of this until I got home and the whole adventure was over, I could have been More Helpful by taking her grocery shopping since she was out of food! I’m alarmed I didn’t think of this actually, since when mum visits me with same van she almost always drives me to the supermarket. Oh well. Driving.
That was Friday and Saturday that I drove.
Today I finished reading “Makers” by Cory Doctorow. Crazy. I don’t want to give any of it away. Or, you know, review it.
I had a super-long weekend, extending to today, Tuesday. I don’t think the five-days-off, two-days-on really works for me, though. I almost forgot to go to dance tonight.
