Stuff I've been doing instead of blogging...

1. Cleaning.  I've done my attic, two bedrooms and one bathroom so far.  Even Beloved has caught the bug. 

2. Gardening.  I've discovered the most theraputic thing I can do on any given day, other than staring at the ocean, is weeding.  Go figure. 

3. Soul-searching.  The last couple months have offered me a lot of Life Lessons... the big kind, the ones that make you want to sit up and pay attention.  And listen.

4. Connecting.  There's nothing like Major Life Events to show you who your friends really are.  There've been the friends who've sent cards, sent emails, phoned even though I haven't felt much like talking.  There've been the ones who've read this blog and reached out, even after a silence.  Friends like that have been the most healing of all.  Then there've been the ones who've turned on me and treated me less than kindly... like the one who thought the expression of her sexuality was more important than my expression of my grief.  And fortunately, I am discovering I have more of the former than the latter in my life, and for that I am very, very grateful.
