Slowly I readjust to a busier life. I’m back to swimming every morning. The watercolors are laid out on a small rolling table we found yesterday at an estate sale. Weight Watcher’s takes time to plan the meals and shop. We have to do this to retain our health. There will still be two half days playing at the Discovery Shop and posting pictures on the Facebook page. Then too, I became aware that I haven’t written one thing of any value for the last year plus some. Just adding the one class to my life adds time complications I hadn’t planned.
You know….don’t laugh, it doesn’t matter. I’ve been bored.
G begins training his auditor replacement this week as he also continues training another person to do subrogations. He will be home today, but parts of this week he will be commuting to the home office. No time to gym. WW frozen dinners for him. And too, I know this man, he will vanish into these new subrogations until he is comfortable with what he is doing. I told him that I would miss him.
Later this year, I will fit a new hip and physical therapy into this jigsaw I call life. Grinning.
I've been a fan of Martin Sheen's work, and these are special moments spent listening to him at the New School, Inside the Actor's Studio.
Keeping those on the east coast in my thoughts.
Himself:Gym. Last day as Auditor. Gas up Grumpy at Costco.
Herself:Finding my water bowl. Digging out topics for next week, looking at old stuff, and finding new.

Your day always includes reading a book. Although I read newspapers, I neglect leaving time for my bedtime reading, which I relish. You're inspiring me to correct that ommission. / You won't regret the hip replacement. My Mom recovered beautifully from two. [TickTockTickTock]

that is a really nice quilt design.
Enjoy your swims...and know we all struggle with time to fit into our busy lives all the things we want to do. Its also importsant too though to pause and relax when we can. I am learning very gradually to spread the load over the year.

I am totally jealous of retired people. [BonnieRose]

Ah, the ebb and flow of life! Your quickening pace may be less boring, but maybe also more of a challenge?
My life is speeding up to a more normal pace, too, with gym begining again this afternoon, and more regular tutpooring this week. I have mixed feelings about this, as the outside activities cut back on time to complete projects here. [Arbi]

RYN: BIG grin! I think I might begin "tutpooring"; maybe it means going "tut, tut" to students who are poor, not only financially but also in effort made (All my students are poor financially; that's why I'm a volunteer!)
But it was meant seriously; it's just that somehow a "p" and and extra "o" slid in there amongst the other letters. Without them it would have been "tutoring" Not only does my brain do strange things sometimes- including forgetting to edit -so do my fingers! [Arbi]

Whoa! That quilt is too busy for me, even the photo made my eyes hurt (or is that my brain aching?)... Squeezing it all in? Great and if not, just do what you are able and let the rest just go... [seedys]

Martin Sheen is such a nice man. He always seem to be so generous, down-to-earth, great person. Thanks for the video. I enjoyed watching it! Love to listen to him describing a normal hardworking life. [the_mysticalmuse]

You sound so busy... which is how you want to be! I envy artists who can create works of art such as that beautiful quilt.
RYN: I did an entry on my old washing machine years ago. Here is a link with a picture. It scares me to read how long ago I wrote that entry... it seems like it was yesterday.... http://www.opendiary.com/entryview.asp?authorcode=A312826&entry=20301

I am a BIG Martin Sheen fan - thanks for the link!
My sweetie and I keep threatening to have t-shirts made that say "Dare to be bored"... but it's only good if it's chosen, I suspect.
