When I rant...

Thursday, January 12, 2006

When I rant, don't worry friends. I am always o.k. If I'm really not, I will certainly tell you something's seriously wrong. My rants about my mother bubble up to the surface every now and then, but you wise friends spoke the truth.

I had a wonderful day today. The week, actually, went so well. All the worrying and endless thoughts on the brain are settling. I won't say that I worried for nothing, because all of the thinking created action. Good action that meant we were prepared and well planned and organized for the week. The babe is doing great with the babysitter. It's three days a week and this woman is amazing. And I don't use that word lightly. I can tell that the babe is fine by the huge grin he gives her when he greets her. Tomorrow I am back with both boys at home again. I work three regular days (I can work from home or my regular office) and I worked from home today which felt odd because it was so quiet and peaceful. I worked with such fury that I got an entire days' work finished by early afternoon. So I went to a few shops before I picked up the babe, and ended up purchasing a new computer desk! A roll-top type, that reminds me of something out of England; it looks very British. It will not be delivered until mid-February (it has to come from Pennsylvania). I can't wait. I will post photos when it arrives. Then I went to the bookstore and had a Starbucks Cinnamon latte, and bought new magazines and a few gifts for friends :). The babe was all grins and full of cuddles, and his new Auntie told me about their day, full of walks in the woods with the dog and sent home with tracings of his tiny handprints, with a lovely card. She will be a wonderful part of our life.

    Cathy -Hey nothing wrong with a good rant every once and awhile. I think it helps clear the soul of the unwanted bad energy.

    I could use a new desk too. My elbows hurt from typing so much! ;)

    Sounds like a great day!

    First of all I love the picture of your figurine. What kind is that?

    So glad you found someone you are happy with for that cutie...that is most important.

    Can't wait to see your pictures of the desk. It sounds really beautiful. You deserve it.


  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Thanks for coming by. I will visit you as well.

    I haven't been by yet to today; after my bath :)Bad energy removed and cleansed.

    Mr.C and I bought that ornament in Bavaria several years ago; it is actually a wooden carving and we could only afford her, she actually has a mate and we intend to purchase him the next chance we ever get to go back to Germany.

    Glad we got that over with!

    Is that statuette wearing knickers?

    hey, that's what blogging is all about- ranting, i think its very theraputic. :)

    sounds like you have a great sitter- so important!

  1. Blogger Michelle said:

    Sounds like you had a rewarding day :)
    Your so blessed to have found the perfect babysitter :)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Yup, thanks to you and others :)
    Only you would question the knickers; perhaps she has a thong under the dirndle, who knows...let your imagination go, mate.

    Yes, I think we are putting some therapists out of business:)

    She is superb and I am so so lucky!

    I love days like those!

  1. Blogger momyblogR said:

    I'm so glad you love the sitter. It's a very difficult thing to find. After all, you leave your heart in her care.

    A new desh, woo-hoo! I'll be waiting for a photo, lol.

    I was meditating a minute ago, a song came on and I thought of you. I promise you walls by Shiny Toy Guns. You came into my life through my blog at such a low point in my life, where just breathing is a struggle. You always have something bright to distract me from the dark. I just wanted to thank you for that, not many people do that for me.

    much love,

    excellent news!
    and your day really sounds wonderful. you did so much work, so it was great to be able to congratulate yourself on that and buy that computer desk.
    Lattes and magazines go hand in hand.
    The great baby sitter, everything is coming together.
    (I don't have a proper internet connection yet, but cheating a bit)

    I feel like the had similar weeks: some bad moments in the middle but then it all went better than we expected. We should learn from these things but we never do! ;)

  1. Blogger Cathy said:

    Aren't they great; and fewer than I'd like!

    I'll be posting a photo. I even tought about posting one from the brochure! Geek that I am :)

    What a beautiful name!
    I am so glad I can help you out,even if just in this small way. I will always be here and visiting your spot to check up on you. Make your goals, in sequence and then draw up a plan. What's your first step going to be? Baby steps are o.k.

    She's ALIVE!!!
    I will keep checking until your new post is up. Will your new connection be much faster?

    You have a great weekend as well :)

    So far so good; have a great weekend.
