in a muddle
hey...what's up. it's been a long time though it's only been days. my days have been as topsy turvy as the weather and i find myself discombobulated and unfettered.
sunday was good - i did a lot of things quietly and somewhat efficiently. part of the day was getting a new bed. and though it made me feel better in many ways, i've yet to really find the groove of sleeping in it. isn't that weird? it feels... good but i don't sleep well in it yet. i guess it's much like life really - the bed - we adjust to bad things in our lives so much that we never comfortably adjust to when life is good, even and moving along at a smooth pace. are we such drama junkies that it's boring...or too staid? i never thought i was that way. or maybe it's just different.
monday was a holdover gray, cold day but the sun parted the sky in the afternoon and spring kicked winter bullies to the ground. the trees have begun to bloom in earnest. around here shorts and flipflops have broken out and getting off at 5:00 is a bit happier with the sun still shining outside.
tuesday is typically hell day at the office - and it held it's promise, but with the treat of having dinner with the nephews life was good. i got bad news about my grandmother last night - she's 97 and it doesn't look good. she is at peace with that - it's those of us to be left behind that are not. i am checking flights to see if i can arrange a trip to cape may to see her. hopefully it will work out ... before ... before. please send prayers and thoughts of peace and comfort to her and my uncles and my family.
