When you try to teach an old dog new tricks, things go wrong. The brain struggles and contorts itself to accept the new information, to sort it into some kind of understandable rhyme or reason, and then, at the end of the day, it all just hurts.
My head hurts tonight.
Trying to learn too many new things in one day. It’s been a long time since I’ve been a student of any sort, so it takes a little getting used to. All I want is to make it to 66 so I can retire from all this stuff. But these last 7 years, I can see, are going to be the hardest.
So that said, I am heading to bed, and it’s not even 9 p.m. yet. I’m looking forward to a long 9 hour sleep, so I’d appreciate it if the dogs would stay put ALL night (and not want to go out at 4 a.m. again!).
Goodnight, friends. One of these days I may have more to write about.
