Obsess much?

I am sitting here trying to think of something note worthy to write. I thought about writing how my Dad called me at work just to see how I am doing and so that my niece could say "hi". I thought about how my most devoted reader who also happens to be my adorable Grandmother, called my Mother to inquire about the doctors appointment that I wrote about. Of course my Mom knew nothing about it because I didn't tell her and she doesn't regularly read my posts so she asked my Dad about it and he knew nothing which spurred the original phone call in the first place. Which is typical of how my family communicates and really it's hilarious if I could stop to actually digest it.

But I can't.

I can't because right now the only thing on my mind is that I got 99% on my first math test of the semester. I should be jumping up and down because I got an A, right? But instead I am pissed off that I forgot to carry the negative on a question, hence causing a 1 point deduction and the 99%.

Grrr! You may have won this time negative number but I'll be damned if I make that mistake again!

Blogfully yours,

Go, brain! I don't think I ever got 99 percent on any test in college.

And, your mom doesn't read your posts? I think my mom takes each entry to an analyst to look for evidence that there might be some new reason for her to worry about me.

@Erin Alberty: My Mom reads them occasionally but she is a nurse running around doing nurse stuff all day so she doesn't get much of a chance.

Can't you just go back in time and conquer that negative number so you can stop obsessing about it? That's what I would do. If I were a math whiz, like you.
