Saints Marching and such
Gosh, March was a busy month for me. I meant to write, and actually started a few but they fell so flat that I never posted them. So, here is my month in no particular order, all summed up for your reading pleasure....
1 I found a gray hair in my head....no I take that back, I found a WHITE HAIR on MY head!!! It was promptly plucked.
2 I learned to poach an egg, and I must say that its actually more fun than you knew you could have with an egg. Very easy to do, and oh-so yummy too.
3 I spent hours and hours at a luau otherwise known as a rehab center, loving and entertaining the wonderful woman I call Mom.
4 The weather became warm and sunny and we reached record highs well into the 80's! For those of you who may not know, this is completely unheard of for Rochester!
5 On one of those gorgeous days, while driving home from work one evening I saw 4 preteen boys at the top of the bridge riding their bikes straight down the bank.......30 minutes later when going out to meet a friend, driving across that same bridge those 4 boys were replaced by 5 middle aged men sitting on the bridge in the very same spot....I found that so ironic and thought something must be said. That speaks to life I suppose. I loved witnessing it!
6 I learned that cheering someone up in the hospital and a rehab center can do more than cheer the patient. It is contagious and spreads to the nurses, and care givers, and cleaners, and food staff, and PT OT and....well you get the picture...its something that warms many hearts!
7 I recieved a call for one measly audition....you would think I would nail it..but, no. That sucked.
8 I am struggling with my purpose, and trying to find what to do with myself. You know that old saying to stop dreaming and start living? Why is that so hard for me?
9 Well, I did make one effort towards living as opposed to dreaming....I am now enrolled in voice classes. I have very high expectations that it will be the key to unlocking my inner passions. I fully expect a transformation to ensue! First class is Wednesday. I'll keep you posted.
10 Oh, so fun! I read one of the classics for the first time! Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austin. Love the movie, and I loved the book. I was so happy to see that my favorite movie version is the one that followed the book to a T!
11 I realized that I truely do live in the backyard of the ghetto. Not a pleasant thought. However, with this now known, I will not be getting a cute little dog until I move to a safer neighborhood where walking a cute little doggie alone at night wont get me mugged, -or worse.
12 I went to 2 wakes. Both unexpected, and both reminded me about how very precious a thing life is. Life is made all the more precious by loving. This is a constant reminder that I need daily.
13 I am not always good at expressing or showing my love. Another reminder.
14 Completed my first solo census, and paid my taxes...yes, I know you did too.
And, there you have it. This mixed with many other daily experiences has made up the 31 days of March 2010. It was a good month over all, and well, I know that may not sound as exciting as it was to live, but it was rather an adventure this month and I am happy to finally have posted something for March.
We'll chat again soon.
