We all fall down!

  The last few weeks my cards have been wrning me that it's time to slow down and really absorb everything that happens around me. To that end I am taking October off so I can stay home and focus on those things I would like to learn. I was suppose to start last week but ....

My entire week last week was spent battling a cold, migraines caused by my period and an infection that had my lymph nodes swolllen and painful. Nothing says "uphill battle" like bleeding, dripping nose, sweats and to top it all off *shudder* mouth breathing. Every moment I wasn't at work or the doctors was spent laying on the couch either trying not to move so my head didn't break into a thousand pieces or or trying to find a way to work up the energy to accomplish basic tasks like shower. It was so bad that I actually forgot I was suppose to work yesterday until they called me 15 minutes into my shift to ask if I was coming in.

That means this week is full of get all my shit done.
Monday I am working 5-9 because I just found out the girl who was suppose to work hurt herself and I guess I was the first fool to answer my phone.
Tuesday the ever patient Becka and Joe are having us for dinner. This will be the third reschedule they have put up with from us.
Wedensday is free but I did tell Rob I would head to Boston to see him while he is visiting and I hope that this is his only free day because it's my only free night.
Thursday is the High 5 rally and I am probably not going to get out of work until 5 then it's off to Igor's to help him with his invoices which  Iwas going to do on Friday but
Friday is Harvest at the Farm! I will be there all night
Saturday is PPD 7 am till 7 pm
Sunday is the Sunwheel at 10 followed by stuff with those people.

then i fall down Sunday night. How this week got so busy I honestly do not know. This puts me two weeks farther away from my goals and contributes a great deal to why I feel as if my brain is trying to follow a hundred different things at once. Focusing is a skill that seems to elude me at the moment. Hence my taking time off in October to really focus.

Being sick has done one thing for me though, I spent very little time online last week. KInda liked it. This has given me an idea. One of the things I have avoided in the last few years is time on the phone in favor of emails and text messages. For the next month we are going to flip things around, If you want to talk, call me. If I don't get to you right away leave a message and I will get back to you. My online time is going to drop severly so this may be the only way to touch base. If you don't have my number - drop me a line and I will send it to you. :)

ok, bedtime. Crazyass week starts soon.

  Thanks to Pinky I braved the blzzaster (and don't get me started on why that is so very wrong) and made it into work today. He pushed the car down our street so I could make it to one that was plowed well enough to drive without manual help. The ride in was harrowing but not overly difficult. I honestly think today was easier than yesterday road-wise.

  Work was - shockingly sparse. They closed production so it was just the offices and of those people there couldn't have been more than 25 of us. There was a festive, "the grown-ups have left us alone in the house" kind of feel. Many of us are glued to the events in Egypt. We gathered around the t.v. to watch coverage of the storm and people being chased by camels in a far off warm land. My one minion has family who lives in Cairo so tonight I hope her family is safe and untouched by the trouble there.

  The AC in the lunchroom is a bit problematic. Every once in a while (that means at least weekly) it blows hot air instead of cool. This means the AC then says "oh..its hot- I should work harder" and blows more hot air. This means the AC then says "'s hot - I should work harder"  you see where this is going? Today the lunchroom was *hot* . the thermometer said it was about 92 at one point, when the grill was up and running. A call to maintenance was useless. (Sorry, i can't fix it. I am going home soon) My inner polar bear spent the day gazing longingly out the window at the beautifully cold snow.

  By the time work was done most of the snow/sleet/ice had stopped. I was geared up to be able to get in the car and go go go home. The car however had something else in mind. I got in, started her up, grabbed my brush, got the car cleaned off and then...I was locked out. with. the. car. running. *headdesk* Panicked I ran to the guard shack to see if the Securitas guard (Nick is his name and not only is he cute as all get out, he is one of the nicest guys I know) He made a few calls, kept me calm and got a great guy from Luzi's in Wilbraham to come and get me into the car. Having never done this before it was fascinating to see how they break into cars now a days. ;) So a potential stressball situation turned into an opportunity to meet a new, nifty person. The guy from Luzi's was telling me about his day plowing. My goodness these guys have been put through the wringer these last few storms! I know I have been complaining about the city not getting to my streets fast enough but that doesn't mean I would throw things at the plows and hurl abuse at them as they clear the roads.

  Now I am home, in warm dry clothes, my knee is sore as hell from gods knows what,American Idol is on the t.v., the cats are with their respective owners snuggled in and I can finally relax and think about Imbolc today.

 Here we are at winter's midpoint. The current in favor rodent has said spring wil be here sooner than usual which for New England means May I think. Here in the middle of winter when there is nothing else to distract you there is nothing to do but look inward and focus on those wonderful handcrafts. Spring is coming. It's inevitable. Now is the time to plan for the spring. Lay a strong foundation for what is to come.

  A little grr, a little panic, a lot of fun and my honey to snuggle with at the end of the day. Not too shabby.
