Taking the Good with the Bad

  • I recently found out that I am diabetic. That's bad.

  • Now I'm anxious about the odd discomforts I've been noticing. Not so good.

  • On the other hand, now my eye exams are covered and I have a good support system of friends who have been there, done that.

  • I've been working on eating healthier anyway, so the changes aren't going to be that hard... right?

  • I have two new 5-star reviews for two of my books. That means the universe isn't REALLY out to get me. Good.

  • I have a plans for coping and for improving my life. They are manageable plans. That's very good.

  • Some of these plans are a direct result of my diagnosis.

Bottom line? "It's an ill wind that blows no good."

Your birthday coincides with the Arthur Shortlists this year. That's my excuse for not wishing you happy birthday earlier, and I'm sticking to it.

Brain Fuzz

8:58 on a Friday morning. Still haven't had coffee. That requires moving. And yet despite the brain fuzz, I can find something to be grateful for. Some things, actually
  1. It's still cool. I love cool mornings.
  2. I haven't looked at today's "to do list" yet. That means I can pretend it doesn't exist for a few more minutes.
  3. Half of my "to do list" is writing - I'm almost positive of that. To be sure, I'd have to look and I'm not ready for that yet. :)

What’s your biggest pet peeve?
I hate smokers who use the world as their ashtray. My mother used to carry around a portable ashtray and put her butts there when she was out and about. I hated that she smoked, but I respected her for her consideration of others.
