Coffee Squirrel

Yesterday and This Morning. Plus and minus

+1 I got to see my student dentist. I love that woman.

-1 Paying for cab because I missed the first bus and they don't run often out here in Bloomington. I would have been late.

+1 I had gyros for lunch at a new restaurant near the job. They were good.

+1 Eric made soup for dinner with mushrooms, potatoes and leeks!

-1 Law & Order: SVU wasn't that great.

-1 I wasn't able to concentrate on reading or writing. Anything. At all. Moving anxiety?

+1 I found out that others see what I see and that my work is appreciated.

+1 My nice co-worker said she'd miss me as a person AND my work ethic and decency. Nice to hear. Little does she know.

All in all, I'm pleased if tired. Now I just have to kick my butt into FINALLY arranging the truck. The trip out to Eugene to find the place is set for April. At first, I was thinking 15 May. My brother gave me a look through the phone. I could FEEL it. "Now you know...!" He began. It hit me. His daughter's birthday is 16 May. He refuses to be out of town for that. Can I take the time to remind you that my brother is ten million times the dad my dad is? Those two crack me up when they're together. Anyway, that's why I changed the plan to 10 May before I even started.

My day is starting on the plus side. Can't ask for more than that!

Okay

You can laugh at their names, but PLEASE don't laugh at the fact that Milwaukee lost a Black child at the same time as Elizabeth Smart. Talk about no room for more than one missing child! I hope they find these boys. Here's hoping they talk about this on the news tonight. Somewhere.
