Calling all muses

My muses seem to be out on a late summer vacation.  I don't have much to say and what I do have to say is frequently grumpy.  Late August has always been a strange time of the year for me.  It was end of the summer harvest season when I was growing up,   lots of work and lots of stress.  My father didn't deal well with stress.  My birthday is this week, and that has a history of stress for me.  There are unresolved issues from 45 years ago.  Hard to let go of some things.  I have to remember that forgiveness is something you do for you,  not the other person.  I miss going back to school. 

I had scheduled a meeting this morning to discuss a project.  Everyone and their pet duck showed up. Maybe they were prepared for me to be a bitch. I wasn't.  It was a walk in the park. 


  1. well, happy birthday, lil penguin!

    you share your week with 2 of my boyfriends: jim of "jim's stuff" and sean of "jeep guy". great company!

    and mine is next week.

    could you be grumpy cause hubby went back to school? {{{{{hugs}}}}}!

  2. Aw, Happy Birthday Travel Penguin!!!
    Don't stress out over another candle on your cake. Have another drink and congratulate yourself on making another trip around the sun!

  3. Happy birthday, good sir!!!

    I'll bet husband being 400+ miles away counts towards the grumpiness!

    Glad your meeting went well, most of our are where minutes are kept and hours are lost. Many, many hours.

    I hope your muses show up soon!

    Peace <3

  4. many happy returns! May the next year be your best one yet!
