Another day is almost in the books

Some day, I intend to look back at the last several days and laugh. Probably not for a really long time, mind you, but one day. Stands to reason, right? I mean, it kind of has to be that way. If not, I will be very sorry indeed.

Anyway, a bright spot on the horizon. I am off to have dinner with Simon, that exceptionally smart, erudite and all around good guy from Hong Kong. We're off for Austrian food way downtown. I'm very much looking forward to this and have been for weeks. And right now, at least, it looks as if I will not have to cancel on him, which is nice since he came all this way. Anyway, I'm pretty excited.

Finally, in lieu of any other post today, I will leave you with the words of the Girl Child from this weekend informing her mother and me about her plans for the future:

GC: When I grow up, I want to be a ballerina and a butterfly. The only problem is that I don't know how to make a cocoon.

Well GC, if that is your biggest worry ever, you are gold!!

RP, you have a wonderful time. You hear?

GC's quotes could...and should!...fill a book.

This too shall pass. Because, well, that's just what these things do.

Hang in there, RP. Hope you have a grand time tonight.

Yeesh! Finally! First your blog won't come up, then your comments screen blasts some huge "404 FORBIDDEN" warning when I try to leave a comment.

Scary! But glad I got through at last.


Sorry you have been going through so much. I hope last night with Simon was a blast and of COURSE the GC/BC stories are special. Always, always, always. :-)

Hope things are smoother now. And great good luck with the job hunt.

RP, hope dinner was fun! Hope Simon's enjoying the big Apple!

6-8 applications? Things are that serious? I have to say, before my ex-sis-N-law left her law firm, she was afraid she might take longer to get to her ultimate goal. After much prodding from friends and family, she realized she might never get to where she wanted if she continued being placed in impossible work situations. Now that she's out on her own, and becoming innovative with her career, she's much happier. Plus I get to see her twice a year for almost a month.

Change is scary at first, especially after getting a new home, but you are brilliant and have lots of options, don't let fear block your vision.

Hoping all is well and that you're keeping your chin up (or your head down).

I think a ballerina butterfly could make a cocoon out of tutus, pink gauze and satin ribbons. Or maybe just a favorite blanket draped over a couple of chairs.

Thinkin' 'bout you -- and hope you're laughing.
