Monday

Hi Monday, how are you?  I scheduled the day off today from working at the hospital as part of my self care plan and somehow a cold decided to follow me.  It has been trying to make friends for a couple of weeks and Friday finally got ahold of me.  I’ve been going through a lot so I’ve actually been surprised it hadn’t caught up to me sooner.  So what did I do today?  I slept in.  I played with my dogs outside and enjoyed watching them watch the squirrels scamper up the trees.  I came back inside and did laundry and dishes and then decided to rest again.  Then I decided to go drop some donations off and would see where the drive would take me before my acupuncture appointment.  I had a great lunch watching people and looking at the gorgeous fall colors.  Enjoyed some sushi and thought of the family I used to nanny in Pittsburgh because that’s where I first tried and fell in love with sushi.  And I listened to one of them most fascinating conversations, likely fascinating because by the looks of these two men I never would have guess the words that would fall out of their mouths.  They talked of transference, addiction, and being addicted to the unhealthy mindset.  Right up this counselor’s alley.  And I looked around me and imagined all the lives and hearts of those around me, not really knowing anyone and yet totally comfortable with this fact.

So Monday, thank you for helping take care of me.  I’m watching, I’m listening.

Love these Fall days.

Friends

I got to have lunch with my friend Hillary, her daughter Malia and her friend Cristina and her daughter Madison. We noticed they were wearing the same style shirt, both striped and purple with black jeans. I got the honor of sitting next to these jumping jelly beans who enjoyed bouncing on the seat as we had Chinese for lunch. They were good sports when I asked if they wouldn’t mind posing for a photo. Their moms told me a very cute story where Madison was being asked to spell out her first and and last name. She corrected her teacher and told her that her name was Madison Hogan. This is funny because Hogan is Hillary and Malia’s last name. So I guess Madison has adopted herself a family!
