Thursday's Child

When it came time to decide on our nanny I was uncharacteristically pragmatic. I said, more than once, "I have a tendency to believe that things turn out as they should."

Although, I really do not have that tendency. I merely wish I did. So fake it til' you make it right?

Then Thursday's news came and I wondered if I was possessed. Did the impatient bitch who was fed up with my dithering finally channel herself? Was I speaking her voice a few days ahead of the news that really begged the question where are you going, Mo-Wo? What do you really want?

I said in that post "... the snow falls harder and in bigger chunks. All the paths previously made will need to be worn anew." I can't deny that part of me can envision a multitudes of ways out. A plethora of new routes. I am fortunate for that.

I'm off for me meeting now. Thanks to all for wise words and kind thoughts. It means a lot having you guys. As my favorite old CBC radio show used to say... Stay calm, be brave, wait for the signs.

Later. Hugs from

And, what is your authentic Indian Name?

Oh man, REALLY? This sucks! You're improved mood and perspective is heartening, but they can't just drop you like that! (Well, they probably can, but I assume humans are involved and will work to undue the damage the rules have caused).

Best wishes...keep us posted

Ever thought a career change? Band Councillor, perhaps?

Job news up this way sucks, too. Maybe I'll go honour my ancestors' way of life and move back to Newfoundland and live on the dole. Wanna come?

Yours in friendship,

Wow....I catch up on reading, and find this bombshell.

Um. WOW. Don't know what to say.

I am pissed off on your behalf. Even if it leads to something better in the long run, I can imagine it sure sucks to live through it now.
