Khayal : Stressed out

There isn't 'too much' going on right now. I traded my rent for my mortgage payment. I dabble in remodel when I have time, but there hasn't been hard deadlines. No new relationship stuff to speak of.

So why did I lose my temper at work? The day was like any other day. Same place, same people, same problems. But for some reason I snapped on September 28 2009.

One more stone for the bucket of life. Actually, this is the second in a matter of a few months. Regarding that other incident I didn't snap, but I did indeed do something I would love to take back.

The song lyric 'we're only human after all' keeps running through my head today. But that's not enough to make me have peace with it. I guess I just wish I knew why.

last day at rocky neck '09

i got there @ 10:45 and it the sun was very hot. sweaty, hot, a bit surprised, i sprayed on the coppertone.

I tried to crochet but the string kept rolling across my sticky sunscreeny legs. Then I got in the water for a few, and the seagulls pulled my plastic bag of crochet out of the beachtote. The wip got all sandy. I put it back, and walked a bit more in the shallow warm surf.

And then I got bored and tired of the biting blackflies and headed home. I managed to stay for an hour.

i needed to recharge it.

i plugged it into the same charger i use for my laptop.

i set it on top of a pile of papers that are on top of my printer.

i heard it pop and sizzle and saw smoke after 20 minutes on the charger.

i carried it out to the yard praying it wouldn't burst into flames in my hands.

i cried.

and now i'm shopping for a new one.

Well Sabrina, I went ahead without you and picked out a very soft, clean, breezy feeling light blue and started painting the apt. bathroom.

The walls are stucco, so I had to really roll that sucker back and forth alot. I guess my arms are getting a good work out anyway. But you would have really enjoyed helping me paint and chatting about how nice it will look after we're done. O yes, but you weren't there Sabrna Soto. You weren't there.

What's the story?

During the past 46 years, I've lived in Connecticut. I've traveled up and around the U.S. and to Puerto Rico, and loved every minute. I've had 4 children who are now fantastically talented adult artists and comedians. I've been married and then divorced and then engaged and then single and finally *big sigh* content. I've grown into a darn good nurse, cook, seamstress, and Mom.

Maybe one of these days I'll get this 'writing' thing down, too.
