Some censuring Readers will scornfully say, why hath this Lady writ her own life? Since none cares to know whose daughter she was or whose wife she is, or how she was bred, or what fortunes she had, or how she lived, or what humor or disposition she was of? I answer that is true, that 'tis to no purpose to the Readers, but it is to the Authoress, because I write it for my own sake, not theirs. ~Margaret Cavendish in 1655

back to everyday life

Well, things are back to normal around here. The hartal finished off with a whimper (for now) and everyone has settled into their everyday routines. I was requested to work all weekend, so cancelled meeting with Rana this weekend. I came into the office and they didn't have anything for me to do, so wasted time was abundant. I don't know when I'll go home today, since everything that 6 colleagues write has to go through me first. That is not going to be fun! I hope that they don't expect me to pull an all-nighter, since I couldn't even do that in university! However, Rana will be coming next Thursday for the weekend and that makes me very, very happy. I haven't seen him in a month. It's so hard to be without him as daily influence. He adds a good balance in my life.

As for the family, everything on that front seems to be forming a new normal. Mom's Cousin Lee Ann just got back from a lovely trip to Alaska and has only lovely things to say about it. I think I'll be smart like her, and only visit in the summer! I really hate the cold, so its someplace I will never in my right mind move to. Visit, yes; live, no.

More family news: Grandma F. is on the recovery list and seems to be in good spirits. Aunt Lisa seems to be coming 'round. Cousin Jamie is moving soon to the farm and kudos for her... moving 2 kids, herself, a small menagery of animals (I couldn't keep track if I tried), her man, keeping sane and being pregnant to boot. She amazes me on a regular basis. Mom and Dad are being good Aunt and Uncle and helping out. And everyone else seems to be working at something or another. Yeah for the family!!!

And on the friend front: Princess Megan is getting back to her new normal also. She doing great in her treatments, but if you don't believe me, just click on her page under Links. Sweetie is going through a rough patch. Boy trouble is never a good thing. I wish I was home to order in pizza and Ben & Jerry's with him and just veg. Lay like broccoli. Also, a belated BD shout out to Friend Alison. She is once again 25. You go for the gold, honey!

Take care folks!

Yah! Rana visiting!

Lots of happy thoughts coming your way-- I have a great prof this sem who has done a lot of international work. If you can't find the right program- or school- social work is really cool!

big love

Hey Girly--I hope you get to see Rana ASAP!

Hi Kiddo, I would think you are getting your fill of "warm". But, I'll keep the Alaska preference. Prayers for our family. Hope you do get to see your Rana soon.
Hugs, LeeAnn
