Well, I finally did it.  I finally created a blog.  I had no intention of doing this today, but sometimes life takes us down a path we don’t plan on.  When this happens I have found that it is usually to my benefit to jump in the boat and go with it.  I love that line in Polar Express, that it doesn’t matter where the train is going, what matters is getting on.

My day actually started out on a rather challenging note….

First my partner’s alarm doesn’t go off…he awakens 90 minutes late.

Then, I come into my office to get in some writing time…

My floor lamp won’t work even though I just replaced the bulb three days ago.  Of course this happens on an almost-never-happens-in-Arizona overcast day.  I may have to work by candlelight.

Then I get an error message at boot up.  The instructions tell me to do a system restore and then update my driver.  Well, silly me had mistakenly used McAfee to clean my system a few days ago and now all my restore points are no longer accessible.  This I find out after trying at least six different points, I have a stubborn learning curve.

Is Mercury in retrograde?

Then it hit me; this is a funny metaphor for life.  Your restore points are no longer accessible.  There is no going back, you will have to repair what you can and move forward.

Guess it’s time to let go of the wish-I-would-haves and the I-liked-it-better-whens and just resign myself to the I-can-dos.


So, with the thoughts of going forward and the energy of the I-can-dos I somehow ended up creating a blog site.


That’s life for ya.
