When The Going Gets Tough…..

….the tough take a walk and smell flowers.

Yes, people are still trying to  make me crazy, wanting to duplicate effort, and cutting me out of the loop.  I’ve discovered that my co-chair is corresponding directly with the president of the board, who (surprisingly) cc:d me when she had been bcc:d.  But you know what?  I no long care.  I’ve made up my mind that I’m not renewing my membership in this group.  I went there, originally, for support in my writing and that’s not happened.  So, three years into it, it’s time to really focus on my writing and not on the drama.  In the words of Julia Cameron, it’s time to “keep the drama on the page.”

So I took a walk.  This is what I saw:


Today is Computer Mechanic and my 4th wedding anniversary and on our wedding present rosebush bloomed a PERFECT rose.  For us!!!  I’m so happy about it.  It’s fragrant and lovely and perfect and it bloomed today, just to make me happy!!  Okay, so I’m delusional, but let me have it…it’s been a tough week.

Then, below it, on the same bush:


Is that not stunning?!

Walking a little further I came to the two flower pots I put out this weekend:




and then around the block:


Happy sigh.

I know there has been no knitting content this week.  But I’ll make up for it next week, I promise.

This will probably be the last post until after the conference.  Have a great weekend, everyone, and wish me luck.

    Well of course the flower bloomed just for you! Congrats on the anniversary. 🙂

  • May you have the strength to not kill anyone, even if they deserve it, the courage to make it through the second day, even though you don’t want to, and the grace to put a smile on it even though you’d rather be anywhere else but there.

    And may their crotches be infested with the fleas of a thousand camels and their arms be too short to scratch. Let me tell you honey, I put FEELING into that one, and it doesn’t bother me one bit.

  • Happy Anniversary! You’ll have to take ComputerMechanic for a stroll to share those flowers with.

  • Happy Anniversary! :o)

  • p.s. uhm…has anyone explained the rule of three times three to Tina? *backs away slowly* ;op

    Just hang in there, it is almost over.

  • to JessaLu

    ah, T put a voudun blessing on them, ergo no rule of three.

  • Jess: Not a Wiccan… I’m probably closer in ethics to Streghe. Hurt me, hurt my friends; hurt yourself. Still *sigh* I DO try not to put ill will out there. Sometimes I just can’t help myself, assholes are an exception to the rule, or at least they should be. 😛
