Day 4 - Life isn't fair

Tonight I sit in tears as I read the caringbridge site of one of my nephew's teammates. After a week, tonight it was confirmed that he will not walk or skate again. I can't imagine what the family is going through - this young man is only 16 years old.

I know there is a plan for everyone and might be a different path than what he had planned, but it just doesn't seem fair...

Day 3 - I like to work

Today was my first day back in the new year. I like my job, I like to think, I like what I do. (ok I missed my nap today, but overall it was good to be back.

Day 2 - I like snow, my dog does not

I have always loved the snow. There is nothing better than walking in the newly fresh fallen snow.
It is going to be a long winter if this is the way Ella is going to accept the new snow. While she was jumping and running in the other night when it snowed, she reality of it staying is not going well. In and out, in and out, in and out - but not going to the bathroom. I know she has to go, but we play the in and out game. Let's hope this gets better.

Day 1 - It can be all about me

I often joke with a co-worker to remember it is all about me. Today on the first day of the new year it really was all about me and that can be ok.

I like to please others, to make others happy. I often say yes to things even when I really don't want to do something or am torn and have another option.

Today I learned it was ok not to say yes to anything. I stayed home the whole day and did what I wanted to do. That did meant missing my nephew's hockey game that I would have loved to have gone to, but really the idea of another white knuckle drive to Edina was not something I was looking forward to- rather I read, watched movies and did a little cleaning. It was all about me and what I wanted to do and that ok.
