I also really enjoyed Eat Pray Love. Sometimes Oprah does get it right, you know? Actually, she gets it right so much, it's uncanny. late night tivo can be so fulfilling.
I listened/watched that obama video about ten times yesterday. I was even humming it when I went to vote. Or caucus. or whatever it was where I stood in line then marked a box for Obama with all the optimism of a boy at his senior prom.
Moms, I'm having a difficult time these days. I co-facilitate a support group and my other facilitator wigged out and "terminated" the group. But see, the group is for women with cancer, and you can't just pull the rug out like that. So they came to me and we decided to start a new group but since it's a group process sort of thing I had to go to my co-facilitator and tell her she was on crack. So the whole day has been phone calls from women trying to figure out this whole thing. I don't want to be in the middle of this, I just want to serve these women so they don't feel totally abandoned.
Aaaaand I'm still struggling to get my work done on this damn dissertation. Will it EVER end?
Aaaaand my grandmother cut us off, so we're short a few thousand bucks this month. Tomorrow I get to grovel and try to convince her that this dissertation isn't just about me, it's about helping people all over the damn place get better care for their cancer pain. and that she has to help us because we have been depending on her and she can't just cut us off without any warning. Seriously- no warning. This morning I looked at my bank account and realized that the automatic deposit hadn't happened and we're totally screwed financially after the great appliance fiasco of January ought eight. wah wah wah, I know. We've been talking about what if this were to happen, but we never expected it to happen just like that for no reason. We expected there would be some sort of warning.
Oh, I'm so glad to have you, friends. I need some sort of friendly happy support these days, and just seeing how everyone supports everyone else makes me all warm and fuzzy.
