October 13???

I didn’t go anywhere yesterday and given that it’s October 13, I am thinking that I might just stay home today, but I may not have a choice.  I do need to get my car in for service.

There are a lot of things in holding pattern right now … I get the gut feeling that I’m not going to get the job in Charlotte.  Wally has a court hearing today.  I hope that goes well for all involved and the matter can be resolved and he can get on with his life.

Getting on with your life … what does that mean?  Are we not “getting on with our lives” on a day-to-day basis?  I know in my instance that it doesn’t feel right to not have a job to go to every day, but am I not doing a “job” on a daily basis?  Do I have to go to an office and sit in front of a computer to be doing a job?  I guess the paycheck is an indication of a “job.”

I think we live in a World where way too much emphasis is placed on the paycheck that you make.  What if more people grew their own food or supported someone else local to them to grow food for them, maybe they could work less and spend more time at home?  Wouldn’t that be ideal?  Why buy, for example, apples that have been shipped in from thousands of miles away when you can go to a local orchard and buy apples?

Honestly, I don’t know what I’m getting at here.  There’s too much going on this week.  In addition to a court hearing this week, Wally’s mother is scheduled for surgery on Wednesday to have her leg amputated at the knee.  That’s going to be ugly for all involved.  His mother is in mid-stage Alzheimer’s and I don’t think she understands the ramifications of this surgery.  I hope it goes okay.  I should hear in the next day or two about the job in Charlotte and as much as I’ve tried to shield myself from disappointment, I know if I don’t get it, I will be disappointed.

At least the sun is supposed to be out today.  Heavy rain is scheduled tomorrow with a chance of showers for the rest of the week through Saturday.  Sunday is sunny, but only 57 degrees.  Yuck!  Yesterday, I did something I haven’t done in a long, long time: took a hot bath!  I was cold and sore from moving all that tin and it was just what the doctor ordered.  Except for caring for the animals, I did virtually nothing yesterday.  I hate not having a daily sense of accomplishment, but I was simply feeling down all day.  Maybe today will be better.

Until later …

  1. For what it’s worth, you’re in good company. I’m working a job right now for the paycheck and the paycheck only — and it’s a puny paycheck, but it pays the mortgage and buys me time.

    Please give Wally my best. That is a tough one with his mom.
