Well, someone's been wicked bad about blogging... What's it been, like 20 days? Wow. I suck. Here's the rundown:
Work: has been very busy. Things usually slow down in the fall, but it's remained fairly steady so far. I am feeling a bit burned out, just from the people and the emotional situations and the sadness... It's not all like that, but lately, I just feel totally drained. Good thing I am on vacation as of next Saturday...
Personal: Speaking of vacation, I am going out to Washington state next weekend for a mini family reunion. Psyched about that but also nervous in the wake of the Philadelphia ear/sinus infection disaster. Gonna take a shitload of decongestants and grab a pair of Ear Planes and hope for the best...
I love Winsor Pilates! I am totally hooked. I am actually kind of stressing about not being able to do them in Washington w/o a DVD player (my sister is the hippy sort and probably doesn't have one.) So although I never thought I'd say this, I guess I will just have to seek out some alternative exercise. Anyway, I thought my scale battery was dead, but it's still not working even after replacement, so I don't know what I've lost, but I have gotten into a couple pairs of pants that I bought but couldn't fit into probably a year or so ago.
Hmmm...Jenn, Mike and I went to the Keene Pumpkin Festival last night. Usually you park on the outskirts of Keene and catch a bus in to the center of town. Well, there were bazillions of people and the bus line was wicked long, so we walked briskly... 1.5 miles in, and 1.5 miles out. My feet are totally spoiled from being in Crocs all the time and feel like bloody stumps as a result of wearing my combat boots, thinking they were a more sensible choice due to the cold. Anyway, the 3 miles was good for defraying the effects of the pizza, pumpkin pudding, pumpkin pie and fried dough! What can I say? I missed all the fairs this year...I was due for some bad vendor food!
My laser vision correction is stalled indefinitely pending scheduling issues and as my glasses were barely being held together by Gorilla Glue (awesome stuff!), I was forced to get another pair. I tried one place online called eyeglassdirect.com and the service SUCKED, so don't go that route. On the other hand, eyebuydirect.com had great selection, high quality, and awesome, fast service. What'da'ya think? Can I pull off "sexy dorky?"
Love: (snippet from an email that sums it up)
And the cynic in me, who has been hurt so badly before, thinks: this can't possibly be real, because it violates every law I know -- things I thought were as set in stone as gravity: ie. what comes up must go down. And then I think about the moon...and how gravity is really all relative.
Then I get caught up in fluffy, romantic hooha and I think: maybe the "laws" do apply to just about everyone in every situation...except maybe once in a while, certain people can transcend reason and what is "supposed to be" and what is "normal"...and find something beyond what they ever believed was possible. I think that's where we are.
Whatever the case, I am glad we are like gravity that way.
Epilogue: Hope everyone is well. Please don't mistake my not commenting on blogs as a lack of love. I am just very wrapped up in my own stuff right now and I am not going to make apologies for it. Please just know that I am thinking of you and sending all my warm fuzzy love!

My heart can be an overtired child before a nap: absolutely impossible to reason with. That aside, matters of the heart, more often than not, defy reason anyway. So basically, I had no chance. *sigh* Against my better judgement (and at the mercy of my overtired child of a heart), I have been hit head-on with something...someone...I didn't see coming.
I like to tell myself that events unfold when and as they should and that everything in life is meant to teach you something...and I'm not sure I'm ready for this class. But here I am, taking a deep breath and closing my eyes; Ready or not, here I go...
