I’ve always been able to see patterns of things – like a big picture view of stuff. Many times, they don’t add up to anything (that I can determine, anyway) but I see them nonetheless. Here are a few I’ve noticed since my return from WooWoo Central:
1. Being at work exhausts me in a way that it never has. I don’t know if it’s coming back from the higher vibrations of the Seminary, catching up on all the leftover stuff plus all the “do you have time to send out a 500 piece mailing by tomorrow?” (WTF?) or just having to be present for everyone (who seems to have missed me terribly. They are all over me every damn day.) Whatever it is, I don’t want to go there and I cannot wait to leave. Once I’m out of there, I feel increasingly better and by the time I get home, I am re-energized. Not sure what all this is about but it’s not making re-entry easier.
2. Everyone around me (IRL and virtually) are having babies! It’s so nice to see the videos and hear the stories about them. While I am fine with the way the Universe worked things out in this lifetime for me, one of my greatest joys is baby-holding. And interacting with kids in general. Whenever anyone from work brings their kids in, we gravitate toward each other. It’s kind of nice, really. (Best part, though, is turning them back over to the ‘rents and going to read a book and eat cereal for dinner. Shhh!)
Continuing that theme, though – I wonder what message I can take re: all the new life that is around me. Might the Uni be telling me to view things with a fresh perspective? I am certainly open to that and have gone through my own (re)birth on some things as well. I trust that I’ll find out soon enough.
One thing that isn’t a trend but is bugging the shit out of me: Democrat or Republican – if you abdicate your responsibilities to your elected office and don’t let anyone know where you’re going when you’re abdicating, then you should step down from your elected post. But what you do with regard to your love life is no one’s business but yours (and, of course, the respective parties involved). And I am appalled at the media splashing the emails of Governor Sanford and someone else across our television screens. Who among us has not written some seriously sappy shit to another? Would any of us want that out there for all to see and laugh at? I sure don’t.
Bottom line: Discussing his duties and abdication thereof? Fair game. Even discussing his hypocrisy over it all is fair game. But putting those letters up there? Completely out of bounds. And the glee people are getting from reading them and making fun of them will come back to bite them in the ass. Just sayin.
That’s all for now, kids. Enjoy your day! (Can I call in sick to work???)
