Adventures with Dr. Lady Cutie Troublemaker

Life is in flux BIG TIME these days. I want to keep in touch with all of my peeps. The Internet is this beautiful thing. I can move to a brand new city and still stay in easy, near-daily contact with the people I love. When I feel connected to the people in my life that matter, I am unstoppable!

Stream of Consciousness

Dad had emergency back surgery, and I keep meaning to blog about that. Since mom had one knee replaced in early April and another in early May, his back surgery wasn’t ideally timed. I went down there for several days to help. Back now and busy. I’m working hard trying to get work for the private practice, but since it’s mid-summer, it’s not really kicking in yet. Got a Blackberry, but I can’t for the life of me work out how to sync my contacts (from GMail, Airset, etc.) with the device. That’s driving me nuts. Jeep has a cold. I was dating an awesome guy, but it wasn’t a great fit so we broke up, but it was like the best breakup ever – no drama, lots of respect. It’s a weird thing to be happy about, but it was mutual and the right thing, and so it goes. I need to contact that woman about the teaching job. Being gone got me off track. I can’t find my sunhat, and I’m going to fry later on the Triangle Film Meetup. I need to get my sleep schedule back to normal. This place is such a mess. What does one do with a perfectly good CD multi-disc player? Everyone else has iPods, too. I don’t have the space for it. I need to shampoo the carpet in here. I wonder if Shannon will have any Zyrtec in her bag. I’m out. I should have left sooner. Which film should I use? I should blog more. Should I join that no-frills gym around the corner? Still, the sunhat thing is the big Dukkha in my life at this exact moment.

Hey, I’m glad you’re writing again. . .cause I’m still reading. . .
Hope you found your sun hat!

If you’re looking for a new singing adventure this fall, let me know. The Women’s Voices chorus rocks!

Hey, Val. I’m just rereading this and remembering how all over the place my mind was earlier. It’s sort of amusing, and sort of sad, too. The meetup was fun, but I think I might have ruined two different rolls of film!

Yes it was, totally all over the place. It was great. Makes me feel less odd in my own all-over-the-place-ness…
