I've decided today, the last day that I'm at work this week of course, that I'm going to jumpstart my work. Just get back to it. I need to take control of my feeling distracted and lack of concentration, and just get the work done.
I wanted to thank you all for the feedback yesterday. Lot's of great suggestions - I'm not sure what I'll do with Mystic's feedback that I sound like a call-girl, but hey, if it brings in paying clients, I suppose it's all good (just so long as they realize that they will be talking to me only).
There are lot's of milestones happening right now. Some of which I want to share, but they aren't mine to share. The one which I've mentioned a part of, is HippyChick & BeeDragon's cat, Shiki. She is old and now very sick, and it sounds like they plan to put her to sleep on Saturday. I'm going over tomorrow morning to say good-bye to her. It's interesting because normally I don't feel quite so connected to other people's pets, but those cats (like their moms) really are a part of my family. I'm sad, but I'm also glad that she can have a peaceful end.
Well, my friends - boring post today, but that's okay. I'm just kind of coasting until the weekend.
Addition: So I was watching the local news during lunch. There was a story about a man who, while stealing from another man's house, found pictures in a safe showing the molestation of a toddler. He reported the pictures and how he found them. He was then arrested for the theft, and faces an additional 2 counts of larceny for previous thefts. In California, that's 3 strikes and means that he is facing a minimum of life if convicted. ACK! There's a bit of a dilemma for an ethics class to chew on.
My opinion is that he should be allowed amnesty retroactively on the last theft, and held accountable for the other 2. Because, really, do we want to discourage the kind of reporting that he did...and they pay for it in our tax dollars for the rest of his life?
