a few thoughts on a few topics

Loss and grief – I don’t remember what I wanted to say about this. Except maybe that because of the loss of my sister, I have become closer to my father. It’s easier to tell him I love him. Maybe one of the lessons we learn from loss is to let go of old hurts.…

  • None of your business
    June 15, 2018
    I heard this quote once a few years ago and I try to live by it. It goes more or less like this: "Other people's opinion of you is none of your business."  I mean, does it really matter what anyone else thinks of you (or what you write)? It's yours and yours alone. If…

    I spoke with our new HR person yesterday. This limbo land that I am living in is making me anxious. She doesn’t know me from Adam, so I gave her my background and the circumstances that led me to her door. Mainly I needed to know if I would be eligible for unemployment if I…

  • Depression Glass Appraiser anyone?
    June 8, 2018
    Anyone?  I have 2 crates of the stuff. I don't love it. I don't want to keep it. It was a wedding gift bequeathed to me by my aunt on her death bed 20 years ago. She collected everything. I mean everything. All of her 21 nieces and nephews were the "lucky" recipients of her…

    Nothing really
    May 30, 2018
    So I was going to start doing a work task. But I got a cuppa instead. I’ll sit and drink it while it’s hot and write a few words before moving on to do some actual work. Went for a walk/jog with my friend this morning. It was beautiful out there! I was very tempted…

    I don’t know what is wrong with me. I can’t stay awake. It’s awful. I’m so groggy. Was it my diet this weekend? I ate and drank a lot of foods that I don’t normally. More beer than usual – which is still not that much. I had 3 on Sat – normally 1, maybe…

    May 22, 2018
    I need to apply for jobs in the schools. I want to. I don’t want to. I want to. I’m overthinking it. My very unconfident self is saying that “there is too much competition and there’s no way you will get a job without experience”. I wish I could just shut her the eff up.…

    What to write, what to write, what to write……I’m avoiding work…..as usual. We are coming up on the anniversary of my sister’s death. I always get anxious this time of year. It’s been 3 years now. I am grateful for the lessons I learned in losing her. Invaluable. I still can’t help asking why it&h...

    Once in a while when I feel like I can go to work a little later H and I take advantage of some alone time after the kids are on their way to school. It’s so nice. I dare say I think I am falling in love with him. Later in the morning reflecting happily…
