As for myself? We're getting rain here finally. I stood in it for a good long while and let it pour over me. I feel so much better now, like a whole lot of emotional and mental sludge has been cleared off. Not as content as I want to be (I finally noticed how much weight I've put on and it displeases me), but I've started working out a plan to change what I can.

Ill, alone, lamenting missed opportunities.

Hey, my hubs and I took a tour through that gorge in your second photo, I recognize it. Amazing walk on those paths. We went two years in a row for the Finger Lakes Wine Festival in Watkins Glen, and I went to elaborate measures to make us some really awesome togas for the Launch of the Lakes party.

That whole area is very, very left, liberal, and into alternative living and questioning authority. Not sure how strong the economy and job market is there, but there are some great houses. The only thing I didn't like in Ithaca was the amount of slacker kids begging for money in the streets, not just because I had the feeling that many of them were spoiled rich kids at Cornell, but they got real aggressive about it.

I think it's a cool part of NYS. I loved the Corning Museum of Glass.

I am NERVOUS !

Which is kind of funny, as I rarely am.
Very full weekend ahead. I am meeting someone for drinks and dinner tonight. Then, having friends over for a bonfire and BBQ tomorrow night. Somewhere in all of that, my town is having a big whoopla of fun all weekend, and some of the products I sell, the town has asked if they could borrow, and use them for display.

Woot ! Free advertising ! I am excited/nervous about it all. Time for my game-face !

It has been a beyond stressful week for me.

My mother yelled at me Monday. Totally uncalled for. Totally irrationally. I was already po'd at her because of information I found out at my dad's memorial the weekend before.

Wednesday at 3.30am I get a panicked phone call that my daughter and her boyfriend were in a fight (not with each other) - he'd been stabbed and her condition was unknown. Crazy panicked drive 5 hours away... done in 4. Pack up their stuff and move them down to my house. They are fine, physically - but now we all get to adjust to my adult daughter (and her boyfriend!!) moving back in with me.

I'm currently in an "I hate my job" phase. Just have to remember that my job is not who I am, and despite the fact that I spend 8 hours a day with these people - I am capable of building better relationships with them. If I fail in that - then there are other options. Kinda kicking myself that I didn't take the job that was offered to me 2 weeks ago though

Currently just want to curl up somewhere and cry. Trying to make it through my last 45 mins and head home - then I will spend the weekend on skates and in my garden, though not at the same time

Feeling a little sad that B has hooked up with someone who by all accounts is a bit of a dick. I wish her the best, because to do otherwise would be petty and churlish, but I think she can do so much better than a rude know-it-all.

Doing pretty good all things considered. My car is broke and sitting infront of the shop as we can't afford to pay to get it the spark plugs replaced, but I got to spend the afternoon with my brother, who is home on leave. It was a nice sunny, but not too hot, afternoon with all of my siblings, my parents, my niece, and nephew, and ofcourse, Runic Wolf and our son. I had a few drinks and am now relaxing while trying to herd the boy into packing for camp.
