I also got good news yesterday, I worked with the Limestone County Archivist Rebecca to submit a proposal to the Society of American Archivists next yearly meeting which is going to be a big one!!! in Washington!!!!! I will be presenting again!!!!!!!! and this one I am not piggy backing off of Auburn or Alabama!!!! I said to Rebecca that WE did this!!! WE made this happen!!!!!
I also got word sometime last week that the award nomination that I wrote to nominate Waymon, my calhoun mentor, for a Rotary award won. I did it on behalf of our executive director so I am going to the rotary luncheon today with her. That should be fun.
Still havent started cleaning my house for Sat party!!!!!!!!
I'm falling behind in my to do list after such a busy weekend. The top three things is get my Christmas presents/cards in the mail, write evaluation which is due today! Yikes!! You know what a slow writer I am!!! And last get my house clean for party sat.
In between all this there are legal matters that need to be dealt with. When did life get so busy and complicated! I fell asleep in my chair last night. I dread these evaluations at work. The amount of dread is borderline panic which has made it difficult to write.
The house is a wreck. I should be cleaning right now, that's how much of a wreck it is. At least I know if I am forced to get it clean that gives me bench mark to impose orderliness that I can sustain for a while, things have gotten away from me in a haze of drunkeness and work travels.
The lawyers visit brought out some really life changing shit. I'm not sure how to handle everything. After lunch I met up with Kim, who got us tickets for Pink in Birmingham. It was totally freaking awesome!!
This morning I have to go to mothers lawyer to view what he has drawn up. Closing out mothers estate feels like a solemn occasion. My sweet mumsey. I would trade all the tea in china and million trillion dollars to sit with her again. I've also been missing Ranee a lot lately. I dont know why i even reminice, its just another exapmple of how you can never go home. I feel like i have shot myself in the foot at work latey. I miss how we would sit, talk like comrades, and plan for the year. At the same time I think about it, I remember my push to move forward and live in the now. After all, today is now. Sometimes I just get a little sentimental and sad. I suppose there is no harm in taking a pause to lick your wounds like an old dog and then get back up. That's the name of the game right!
Today, the work day, was challenging at best. Many of a mind- field exits for me at te library these days but I ignore it till it gets the better of me like today. As much as I have done to further the field of archives in my field' which may be nothing, although I was the only public library lay person in Barcelona, I really fear a bad review. Some days I miss Ranee substantially more than others.ntpday at work was inept those days, that and I had to give a talkat a realy bad scary nursing home. Even the well financed ones are bad. That I have scene. I hope I die before I have to go in one. Sweet dreams friends, and a hope for a warm quiet night for us all.
It's rained here pretty solid all day long. It's been a nice rain conducive to relaxing and unwinding. It has been several weeks since I fell asl eep in the tub. It was so nice. What a great sleep that is.
I've been thinking about mixing my most listened to tunes or the songs I was particularly drawn to.
Tonight I am listening to guy Clark "stuff that's real" it's such a great song. So relaxing that I have noodled off a few times. Maybe if I am ready to give into sleep.
I had a really nice day....Christmas shopping at the mall and the highlight was putting up the Christmas village. I didn't have the heart to put it up last year, but I found it today and I think Leberville looks pretty good. This is all that would fit on the baby grand, I think I may find another spot or two for more. I hope this pic isn't huge. I took it with my phone, which I am just getting the hang of.
Christmas sweaters were out in full force at the mall. I took a candid photo like a paparatzi
I came out on top today and fell sleep in my chair warming my feet. What more can one ask. It was a good day.
