Gems from the Equinox.

Today is the equinox-one of the balance points of the year. I should do something for it-need to figure out what that is. Same for the solstices.
Been slacking on frequent postings. Not that it matters, I don’t think anyone’s following me. I have lots for twitter, where I post from the electronic poet every work day. As an overview, nothing earthshaking going on-some work pluses, like extra $$$, E is in a bad place, the kids are much the same. Not doing anything with anything, but I bought a music thing that might change this. I’m taking a break from Steiner, but my brain keeps chugging along, even if I’m not doing the exercises. Once E gets back on an even keel, I want to do a spring clean.
Another day-on time. A big thing, no resolution. Home, cook dinner, S to bed, TV until bed. Sleep, more of the same. Yeah, whatever. And now SQL tuning. Whoopee, no $, no gas, no gamelan. The usual, again. And again. 2 meetings, and destruction of bank balance. $500 over what we had. I now have no money for any extras.
And of course, several days have elapsed. Memorial service, different church, new to me clothes. Payday, extra, bonus today, and it’s still a struggle. Watched C’s 8th grade play-he played Proteus in Two Gentlemen of Verona. He did very well.
Another day, Weds., E is struggling. And now Thurs. And now Fri. And now Mon. Shopped Sat-picked up my amp, bought some shoes and stuff. E had a diverticulitis attack early Sun AM, so we went to the ER at 6 and came home about 2. So, so tired, even now. Train mess downtown. Easy home, tired, dinner, S to bed, house is pretty clean. Trying to maintain, S to bed, E to bed early. C is getting new glasses. Venezuela is falling apart. Work, school meeting, shopping, dinner, bed. Up again, a guy barfed on the bus. Busy, meeting, home, C is struggling with creative writing. Archer. Easy in, made the early bus, S got up early. My QY came, but no one was home. M is on spring break. And so it goes.
