Blog? Posting, what's that? Life outside the blog is taking up a lot of my energy. However, situations are changing. I'll be giving up Purling Oaks East in less than two months and soon will be based from only one location--home! I can comfortably say with confidence that I'll have more weekend time at home. The rest is still up for determination. Or is that self-determination?
There's a merger (of sorts) in process at work and everything is changing for just about everyone. Yes, chocolate consumption is high and there was absolutely no Easter candy left at the drugstore next door for reduced sale after Easter. None. That's more telling than anything I could write about anxiety, water-cooler talk, or fake job assignment letters left at the printer.
Last week I went to a Nationals game with two friends, Mary Jo and Roberta. It was fun and the stadium is new, nice, and clean. The nachos and hot dog were tasty and the beer cold. I haven't had baseball nachos in ages. That will do me for a while but they were still good. Caution: iPhone photos!
We had better seats than these photos show but they were still nosebleed seats.
When I'm back inWisconsin, I'm going to miss the dinners, lunches, outings and talks with Robyn, Kathleen, MJ, and Roberta. Three of us have places in DC, besides homes and family in points west. Two of us are based near DC but may end up elsewhere (like an island!). I know/hope that when we go to the four winds, or is that five winds?,--me first--that we'll still get together. I really didn't expect the friendship I found in the east and I'm glad I'll be able to carry it with me.
This morning's task is laundry; this afternoon's list includes errands and a trip into Madison. Tomorrow, we're going north to see Mom for an early Mom's Day brunch. I hope today's weather holds. It is beautiful outside this morning. Sunday---back on the road.
If anyone is interested in a one-way Road trip from DC to Wisconsin in mid-June, let me know. A navigator would be fun to have along. :D
