Living and staying in the moment has been extremely difficult for me this week, My mind wants to disengage from all things Florida, and look ahead to living back in WI/ From the mundane questions of how will I decorate my new oapartment, to the deeper issues of existance and survival. How will I be able to save enough money to buy a condo, or to retire in 18 years? Time is growing shorter, and i want to make the most of it. Years fly by before we know it.Hard to stay in the moment while trying to plan for my finacial future.

Life is too short- cross posted from fifty_something

February 10th, 2010 (12:32 pm)

Today a woman died who I had never met. She was a 55 year old mother of 2. She was my daughters friend's mom. I had been following her journey living with cancer for the past 9 months thru a web site called caringbridge.com which allowed her, and then her family to journal their thoughts and feelings. I feel a deep sadness for Joann's family, who so clearly loved her very much. Her husband and daughter both shared their feelings of pain and loss in a way that allowed me to understand the vital role this wife and mother played in their life. She was a nurse, a mom, a wife, a friend who had made a great impact on many peoples lives. Rest in peace,Joann. And to the family left to grieve the lost of this wonderful woman, mt heart and prayers go out to all of you

Writer's Block: Job search

October 8th, 2009 (01:32 pm)

Are you happy at your current job? Do you think there's such a thing as a dream job? What do you hope to be doing five or ten years from now? Are you working towards that goal?

Is there such a thing as a perfect job? Definitely have not found it in my lilited experience. I am ok currently, nice to work from home, but the job itself is boring as hell. Who weants to be a claim processor? Noone. Enjoyed underwriting much more. My ideal job ( I think) would be a dog trainer. I'm sure there isnt much money in that, but if I knew what I was doing- the rewards would be great.I want to be like Cesar Milan, but in 10 yrs I think I see myself sitting right here in front of this computer.

When Life Gives us Lemons

September 9th, 2009 (08:40 am)

I have my ups and downs, we all do. I am by no means a super positive pollyanna type person. But there comes a time when I just have to throw my hands up in the air, and say WTF! What is so bad in my life, in my world, that I can't find a positive place to look, to be, to emerse myself in. There is always something good going on, and it is my mission to identify that place, everyday, wherever or whatever it may be.Makes the day better. A friend said to me this morning, "the thinhg about morning is it is full of the possibility of blooming" I like that. You just never know what good thing the day may bring.

I Will Never Be Happy

July 20th, 2009 (10:17 am)

I will never be happy until I stop having expectations of others in my life. It is a simple notion that applies to everyone and everything. Work and personal.It is my expectations that set me up for sadness and feelings of disappointment.The only person I can rightfully expect anything of, is me.

June 11th, 2009 (12:56 pm)

I just found out today that my job is safe. We had been told about 8 weeks ago, that some people would be let go during a restructuring of the biz, Thankfully, I still have a job. Out of 59 people in my dept, 17 people were let go. This worlds economy really sucks right now- SO many people out of work. I must say it- I am grateful to have a job. Whew!!

Racing With Beds

May 19th, 2009 (01:19 pm)

Went to the bed races on the street near my house. The area is known as Gulf Gate, and it has at least 30 bars in a 2 block area, and as many places to eat. The bed races were sponsored by the local bars, and many had entries. It was fun to watch all the crazy drunks, not counting myself, of course.

It rained half way through, so everybody crammed into the bars.I went home to dry off, and dry out.

Idol is Annoying

May 14th, 2009 (06:47 am)

I was so disappointed that Kris was voted thru to the finals. He doesn't have that good of a voice. I was hoping to see Danny Gokey in the finals, with Adam. I believe Adam will win, no matter who he goes up against, but Kris? Really?
