It's amazing what joining a small group (women's Bible study) has done for me. I've been to a Pirate's game, attended part of a murder mystery party, and by not going on Monday, someone wrote on my FB wall saying, "we missed you." And someone else got me on G-chat just as I was shutting my computer off at work last night. And my picture has been featured in two FB albums (and I have pictures I have to post...)
And as I bite my nails over the latest "what if?," another opportunity, which looks pretty good too, shows up. I think the universe is telling me to lighten up.
And if all else fails, starting in September, I'll up my work hours to 40/week (from a current 35) and that will be my car payment. I talk to Dad tonight.
On my walk, I realized I still am such a baby blogger. I'm still trying to figure out who I am, where I am, and what this blog is.
But hey, look at the time! If I'm getting a shower, I gotta go.
More better writing later, I promise. Oooh, and maybe pictures. Kiki and I are neck to neck on kitchen beautifying. I have the easier task (do the dishes). She's painting hers. Oi.
Have just started Love me Tender. Really gotta go now.
Thanks to Helen, here is another post about using [pleasant] words, by Susan Estrich. I especially like this bit: As my friend Jack used to say, 90 percent of life is just showing up. In hard times, it's probably closer to 99 percent.
