Well, it was a good and romantic thought I was having, when I thought I’d be better at keeping up with a blog the nth time around. It would have worked like in the past, perhaps, if all other variables were held constant. But that’s not life, now is it?
So, in keeping with that, a lot’s changed since March 1. First and foremost, there was the departure of Audra. She’s gone to bigger and better things in Texas. I’m naturally very happy for her and naturally very selfishly sad she’s gone.
Again I find myself pondering this phenomenon in my life that always has my best friends moving away. Holly. Erin. Laura. Audra. Le sigh. It’s been so long since I’ve had a best friend conveniently close that I can hardly remember what it was like. But I guess that’s just the times in which we live, eh? Everybody’s global. Everybody’s moving… And it was pointed out to me last night (this is such an easy point to overlook…) that I did some of that moving away myself.
The other big news is the arrival of Lily, the kitty, into my life. She’s been with me for almost two weeks now. She’s a pretty great kitten; we have a swell time together.
Work’s work. I’ve been relatively busy there lately, which I guess is a good thing. I learned the English part of the client that also speaks French. Now that I’ve had about a week to get used to their procedure, I think they’re adding the French part in around Friday or Monday. That should be fun. I’m getting eager to start using the French. I think it’ll make things more interesting.
Today and tomorrow are my days off this week and I’ve given myself a special project. It’s called: make my apartment look less like a dorm room. Sounds fun, huh? I got me a little budget set aside for some bookcases, slip covers etc, etc and we’re gonna nip this thing in the butt, once and for all. My other special project is to get a mini-garden started here soon. Or at least to get the things I need to grow something. I’m thinking cherry tomatoes. Or peppers.
Next exciting thing in life is that tomorrow my beloved Hodes will be in town along with Hilary Clinton. Whee! By great luck I’m off and I get to go with him to watch her speak. Chris even made us t-shirts! Mine says, “Hoosier President? Hilary 08”. I’m so clever…
At any rate. Special project calls… Must be scootin’…
