Random Thoughts on a Monday

Spring will be here soon, winter comes and late and spring comes early here in the mid-Atlantic region.  Someone posted that daylight savings time arrives soon, I hate changing the clocks.  Mostly because it results in me getting up in the dark, feeling like getting up in the middle of the night.  

Alarm clocks, I have mentioned this before, I seldom set an alarm. The first time I didn't set an alarm was a mistake, and I discovered that I was on time anyway, without being jolted out of my sleep. Try it, you might like it. 

We have a new HR person at the office.  She is efficient and fun.  I was talking with her the other day and I mentioned one of my rules.  I don't sleep in the office and I don't work at home.  Now sometimes I work at home, but I try to work in the office if I can.  I have the best work-life balance of my life.  

Mom has been dead two years.  Seems longer. Time and reflection have made my relationship with her more complex.  Dad has been gone 18 months, I miss him more now than before.  

Taxes, I need to get at it and get our tax returns done.  

There we have it, death and taxes, what more can I talk about on a Monday?    


  1. we are waiting for our refund. we also have 5" of fresh snow. and it's monday. my boss is having his second child born this morning; another boy.

  2. Looking at that picture, I could swear I was looking into a mirror this morning! My fasting glucose level is 305 this morning and yet that leftover pizza is still calling me! I'm going to give in to temptation because I don't want the green stuff that I'm supposed to be eating, to be mold.

  3. I always hated setting an alarm (still do), and although I usually wake up well before the alarm I have been known to hit "snooze" one too many times and then be late. My mother died 2-1/2 years ago; it's been 32 years since my father died. Time and reflection have made my relationships with them more complex and more clear at the same time. Does that make sense?
