Cyclothymic Cister

Before the Internet, I used to lie in bed at night composing thoughts as if I were talking to a wise entity. (An actual face never came to mind). I would re-word and re-phrase the thoughts till they were crystal clear. Now I can blog. And hopefully, there are a lot of wise people with real faces out there who might just comment back.

As the World Turns

I’ve been away from blogosphere for a while due to changes that have kept me pre-occupied. Here they are in a nutshell.

I changed jobs. It was kind of a fluke. I was mad at my redneck incompetent boss one day so on a whim I submitted my resume for a position that really sounded interesting. I got the job.

The job is hard. Very hard. But I am catching on and it is fun, the company is top notch and the people are happy and easy to be with. (more money, too). After two weeks I was required to go to Los Angeles for one week of orientation (read “wining and dining”).

We had a houseguest--the same week I started my new job (which took all my mental and physical energy). What a presumptuous jerk the guest turned out to be. And we had him in our home for two weeks!

My sister had a lung biopsy while I was in CA. She has a mysterious pulmonary illness which has the specialists stumped. World-renowned experts are trying to diagnosis it. (We are going to name the disease/syndrome after her).

My husband and I had our most intense, heated counseling session--on the second day of my new job when I was already drained and my mind in a fog.

But the strangest thing happened. The diversion of the unwelcome houseguest brought my husband and me closer. DH and I would go off in another room and whisper about how obnoxious the houseguest was being. We came to look forward to furtive talks. So, good can come out of almost anything.

I'm back to the blogosphere as well. Before reading your post, I wrote one very similar. Anyways, thanks for the gifts and the dinner last night.
