An Optimist's Dream
My room is emptier but still full -- an optimist's dream. The bed, table, and cat tree are all out, but the clothes, papers, and computer peripherals remain scattered across the floor.
You'd be missing the point of taking a trip if you were stressed preparing for it. But you'd be supernatural if you could control all your emotions that come with preparing for it.
The landlord comes Tuesday at noon to estimate the amount of damage my cats did to the apartment. That leaves me with 37 hours to fill my bloodstream with caffeine and to organize the remnants of an optimist's dream.
