Is anyone tired of waiting for a school assignment? I know that it has only been a few weeks since we turned in our applications, but I'm ready.
I was talking to a girlfriend tonight about her summer plans. She hopes to move to her Mom's house with her kids so her husband can do some work on the house, "But I feel like we can't make any decisions until we know where we're going to school," she said.
Another friend of mine is renting a house and wants to move to a new rental, "But I want to wait to see where we get into school," she said. "So we can move close to it."
And then there's the money issue. I met a woman at the park who desperately needs a new car, "But we'll never be able to afford one if we go to private school, but who knows if we'll actually go to private school."
Any tips on how to deal with the waiting? I have nights when I can't sleep and I wish I could say that I sip herbal tea and relax myself with a few yoga poses but actually I end up cruising the Internet or watching The Wire until 2 a.m. Or I stuff junk food into my mouth. Or I waste water and take long hot showers. The waiting. It's a game that I don't play well.
