And that’s a good thing. I think I just needed to wallow in it for a bit (which I did) and today, as I sit here on my couch, sip coffee and look outside at the beautiful sky and budding trees, I am thankful for another day. Yes, I miss her. But yes, I will continue to find the joy in each day as she always seemed to do. Thanks to my sweet friends who left me comments, sent email and are with me in spirit.
Time to fully step back into my life.
From my new friend Gillian comes this quote:
A wise woman once told me: “anyone who can render himself unconscious with a pretzel should not be ruling the free world“.
Rant du jour: Dear People, if the phone rings and it’s an inconvenient time for you to take a call, how ’bout you just let it ring, mmmkay? But to answer the phone and be shitty to the person on the other end of the line (me) because you didn’t want to be interrupted is not very nice. Just sayin. That’s what answering machines are for and truthfully, I would rather talk to a machine than be made to feel like I am committing a crime by calling to let you know your pet’s meds are ready to be ordered.
Hockey talk: I see we traded Brendan “GreasyJesus” Witt. Good. Bye! Ovey continues to be a marvel. We have Olie and he’s the only one we need (oh, and Halpern and that one’s for you HockeyKim!). I haven’t watched a game in at least a month. Gotta do that before the freakin’ season is over.
American Idol: Oh poots. This working night shift is messing with my AI watching. Yes, I TIVO it but just don’t have a lot of time to watch it. I have no idea what’s going on there and perhaps that’s a good thing but I just say “Dammit”. Even more reason for me to get my damn ass in gear and do what I love WHEN I want to do it.
Okay … so, look for some cheerier posts from me forthcoming. The snark must go on! (Why did I dream about Scotty McClellan last night? He was so cute and I really liked him. Does that mean I secretly want to be (HORRORS!!) Republican???? (slaps self in the face and says NEVER!!))
