no bean sprouts

Sometimes, life gives you spring rolls just when you need them, a coworker calls you a "young cat", and you remember to drive home with the wind in your hair.

black orange

The brightness in an otherwise awful day:
My newly pregnant coworker is naming her baby girl after me.

magna carta

I love my aunt's voice.  It's interesting how hearing a voice over the phone can be such a different experience than when engaging in person.. the feelings, memories and images such an experience can evoke.

good eye bad eye

Today started off awesome with new contacts (finally) and then surprise SNOW blowing in at 6:30am, covering the deck, cars and rooftops.. a magical drive to work.

Switch to a crazy morning at the office, awful headache by noon, then an unexpected call resulting in a trip to the Emergency Room and a temporarily blind boyfriend in much pain :(

Ending this long day with gratitude and hopes for all afflicted to find healing... in some form or fashion.

Hi Mia! Here is your Daily Horoscope for Thursday, January 9

You need to stick it out today -- otherwise, there's just no telling what might pop up tomorrow or the next day. Things are only going to work out for you if you believe in yourself.

Hi Mia! Here is your Daily Horoscope for Friday, January 10

You can feel a bit better about your lack of progress when you realize that your values are still intact. It's a really good time for you to remind yourself of what is most important to you.

Feeling anxious about chaotic work environment possibly never improving. 
Disappointed to hear about social dynamics at workplace.  
Reality check.  Remain neutral.
I may be the bridge.  Will have to find my voice!

winter song

and the hearts of fathers
are carried in the snow, the flow, the pull...

I just found out that a friend of mine has been dealing with cancer for the past 4.5 months and I didn't know about it because I've barely been on Facebook since August.  I last saw her in late June for her 30th birthday.  I'm really struggling to figure out my feelings right now.

So many feels.

I still drive by her old house every time I go visit my parents.

Annnnnnnd today my boss was on the verge of tears.


It was actually a better day today, though.

We are a team with a vision.

cried at work today.

it figures that the earliest day I left work since starting this new job (an accomplishment I was very happy with yesterday) would be followed by the latest day I've stayed at work so far.

I'm finally available to do something fun this Saturday but no one else is free.  MusicMan was supposed to be off but now has to work.  Everyone else I need a hug from is out of town or too far away.

once again, we're not going to have any time to get a christmas tree or lights this year.  i really thought this would be the year.

at least I got paid today...
