So I have to say I’m sorry that I’ve been lame at posting this week, but work has been kicking my butt. So in honor of it being Friday–yay–I feel compelled to write now–while I have a moment at work (shhh, don’t tell anyone!)…
First, I just have to say that sometimes I love anonymity. One of my contacts at company we closely work with is someone I’ve never met in person. So when I was making plans for Germany next week and thought maybe we could meet and get caught up on business there, I was told that he doesn’t get to travel to those events, much less leave the state of NY where he resides (and works). And he’s like, and I won’t be coming to Boston any time soon since I’m a YANKEES fan. He may as well have told me I was fat for the way in which he said it was like a slap in the face! Then he laughed and so did I and that’s when I said something to the extent of “The Yankees are going down…so watch out!”
That brings us to today with more banter–an obscenely large Yankees logo taking up space in an email much about nothing was sent to me. So I decided that even though there was no update on our latest agreement that we’ve been toying back and forth with through legal for months, that I would send a little email his way, throwing in his face that the loss against the Indians was u-g-l-y (you don’t need no alibi, you ugly, you UGLY!)…
And so we just had a nice chuckle on the phone now. In your face, Yank pants!
Bub is away this weekend and there’s a good chance I won’t see him prior to leaving for Frankfurt. Sigh. He’s off to Maine for a kayaking trip with his friends as one of them is getting married in the spring and this is his bachelor party. I’m going to miss him, but there’s lots of laundry and cleaning and packing and shopping (!) to do before I leave so I’ll keep myself busy with that. My parents offered to come over and check out the new kitchen renovations, too.
Hopefully I’ll be able to squeeze Bub goodbye once more before I go. Otherwise, I’ll be counting down the days to when I see him. I know, I’m a sap. But it gets hard when you’re in a routine and then you all of a sudden don’t see your best friend for a long time! A week is a long time!
Finally, the last update is that I started my very first online class. I was skeptical about it and still am, but I wanted to write and be pushed and get my mind moving again, wiping the cobwebs away with homework and lectures and stuff. So last night I had to write and it was hard. And I sat in front of a screen for a while typing and deleting and typing. And I put it out there.
I posted my weaknesses and shared my downfalls, but hopefully there’s a hidden gem in there somewhere. Hopefully something worked and someone will release me of my insecurities or help me through the process so that I can once again feel like a strong writer and someone who can feel that she knows what she is doing. Because there’s been a lot of not knowing lately.
