I had a goooood dinner. I will indeed sleep like a baby tonight.
My boss went on a rampage today, yelling about everyone behind their backs and not saying a word when they were around. At least he was smart enough to know who would walk out. But really, my job is a joke. I need to have a real career with real professionals. I am beginning to wonder if they exist.
I am ready for a trip. I hope Atlanta works out. It’s time to get the hell outta dodge. Driving long distances always puts me at ease. I don’t even listen to music all that much. I just enjoy the silence.
I opened my windows today. It’s nice.
There are some people that I really miss right now. If I could hang out with anyone at the moment it would be Todd . He was my brother in law’s best friend and a great friend of the family, we even dated for a short time until the long distance got the best of us. In Florida we would all go watch beach volleyball and play cards or go to Wet and Wild. We lost touch a couple years ago and last I knew he had finally conquered cancer and his bachelor’s degree. I hope you are having an awesome life, whitter, wherever you are. I also really miss Shaughnessey and Kelsey from the ol Florida gang. We talk more often but nothing has ever been quite the same since the divorce. Speaking of which, I got an email from my ex-father-in-law the other day. He is a ginourmous blacksmithing maniac and and even bigger teddy bear. It looks like he has been commissioned by the military for some blacksmith training over in Iraq. He seems really excited about it. As much any man who makes knives for a living could be. Here is one example
I love the change of seasons. That is something you really don’t get in Florida and there is something so necessary and theraputic about it to me. It’s like just when everything goes to crap and you feel like you can’t breathe anymore, there is a cool breeze in the fall or a warm glow in the spring that brings a whole new light to things. It’s refreshing really. And I am so thankful that I have been created with the ability to appreciate the beauty around me. I think the quote below fits in with the idea of seasons.
“Don’t ever give up, because little by little you are changing. The more you change your mind for the better, the more your life will also change for the better. When you begin to see God’s good plan for you in your thinking, you will begin to walk in it.”
~Battlefield of the Mind (Meyer)
In my mind, there are seasons, each one in its own timing and right for that time. But there is another season coming soon and I can’t just hit pause where I am…because change is on the way.
