Just wasting time

April 18, 2018
OK – I’m getting ready to go through a short spreadsheet of open orders that need to be closed. I can do this. It’s been on my desk since yesterday. There are a lot of things on my desk that have been here a lot longer. But this one is a little more time sensitive.…

    Before you were mine
    April 17, 2018
    This morning I said a little prayer of gratitude for the love my children received from their caregivers before we were able to hold them in our arms. I am grateful to their birth-mothers for choosing the path they did for them. I am grateful for the nurses and staff at the orphanage who loved&he...

  • C’mon Spring for heaven’s sake!
    April 16, 2018
    My cat spied a big fat robin in our back yard.  Gave me a little hope for spring which is taking it's sweet freaking time getting here this year. I was ecstatic when I could actually see my fat-cat garden statue start to emerge from the receding snow just a couple of weeks ago. Looking out from t...

    Don’t know what happened to me on Sat eve. I was a hormonal train-wreck. I don’t know where I am currently in my very irregular cycle. I used to be able to predict when I would be emotionally fragile. Now I can’t always predict it. It’s maddening. For me and my family. Anyway, I got so…

  • Easter, mom & dad
    April 6, 2018
    Easter weekend was nice. We spent a little time with the many nieces and nephews. My sister's youngest who will be 13 soon, went to a movie and colored Easter eggs with us. He mentioned his mother and how she liked bunnies. I told him about the bunnies that she and I had as pets over our childhoo...

  • OD
    April 3, 2018
    What is it about OD that is so special? I’m so happy it is back. And everyone who has come back seems equally as excited. I wrote on another site or 2 – just like many here - trying to “make do”. But it never felt the same. I don’t know what it is, but…

  • My D and equality
    April 3, 2018
    Just remembered a short conversation D and I had in the car recently. She brought up the subject of television and/or written stories of girls who have to “prove themselves” in different scenarios. In other words as a female their abilities were questioned. D said “the fact that we are even havin...

    Sunrise
    March 27, 2018
    I went for a short run around my neighborhood this morning. It is hilly where I live. With hills you get beautiful views. This morning as I rounded the corner on to my street I was greeted by a fiery red horizon. I had to linger in my driveway to take it in and thank the…

    March 24, 2018
    I am sitting in my car writing on my phone so this will be short and sloppy I’m sure. I am waiting for D while she is in her writing class. It is in the city so I usually wait the 2 hours down here rather than schlep back to our ‘burb. There’s a great…

  • Mental round-about
    March 23, 2018
    I’m finding ways to waste my time this morning. Like this. I got to my desk at 8:00. I think that’s the earliest this week. I was full of hope that I could continue the momentum I built in the last hour of the work day yesterday. Not happening so far. I asked boss a…
