And everything is relative. At least our jobs just consist of typing things & moving boxes around on screens. And the jobs could potentially get better if people act more intelligently. I could look around & point out 60 other jobs that are worse than these. Like the traffic directors standing in the middle of the busy, icy intersections during rush hour today. Or the people on farms who have to artificially inseminate cows. You know what I mean.
Oh oh! We booked a vacation for the end of February. We're going to St. Croix, where there are no telephones or computers or snow. I almost can't believe it.

Tomorrow morning I take Toni in to get spayed. The last time I took a dog to the hospital it went badly. I think that Toni will be okay, but I'm worried about the flood of memories and emotions I'm bound to experience in the next few days. Putting my faith in the doctors, leaving without her, tending to her at home while she's getting over anesthesia, administering wet food, carrying her up and down all the stairs five times a day, celebrating when her tail wags again... And of course we've just been hit by a massive snow storm. Not nearly as bad as the one last February when Fannie was in the hospital, but once again I'm gonna be navigating drifts with a sick pup in a sweater. : (

So lifelike! The graphics are astounding. Puts todays games to shame.
I can't believe I still remember the "song."

You don't have to accept the joy, the serenity, and the many opportunities that are waiting for you in this new year. You could choose, instead, to cling to your old melancholy, your stress, and your sense of being stuck. But you aren't so addicted to drama and tragedy that you would do such a thing, are you? Of course you're not. That's why you're going to put a smile on your face, start thinking about all the wonderful possibilities that are out there waiting, and open your heart to a wonderful new beginning.

Are you ready for all the changes that are about to begin taking place in 2012? If not, it doesn't really matter. Because, like magic, as changes begin you will suddenly feel ready, willing, and able. If you are already feeling lucky, there is a very good reason for that. Your intuition is telling you that this will be a really good year. Projects that were stalled or stuck will start moving again. Relationships that were fraught with conflict will become easier. And goals for success that once seemed unattainable will finally be within your reach. Get ready for a very good year.
And I think I'll choose to believe it, because it does feel like I might finally be exiting a long dark period.
Hello 2012. Pleased to meet you.

Anyhow, I find that good winter gear makes life so much better. I'm gonna go test out my new coat with dog walking duty.
