I'm meeting my friend N for coffee this morning. I wrote about my friendship with her a couple years back in my post Lunch With a Friend. She and I have compatible/ying yang jobs at different agencies, so coordinate regularly by phone and e-mail but don't get to meet up in person with just the two of us often enough. She, like me, accepted her position thinking it was much different than how it actually played out. She is excellent at her job, but has daily challenges moving efforts forward because of systemic slow downs and over cautiousness. Like me, keeps her eyes open for new opportunities, but is not in an active full on job hunt. Did I mention she too was recruited as a candidate for the dream job? I'll get caught up on her next steps. Regardless, there is a pretty major change in her work place, one that impacts mine, but specifically how, won't play out for several months. I'm trying not to be cryptic, so I'll just say, times, they are a changing in my professional life.
DD2 has her Spanish National Honor Society dinner tonight. This will be her first year, so there is the induction ceremony, preceded by a "Spanish speaking country of origin" inspired meal. I'm guessing tacos, rice, etc. will be served. She has play practice after school, so will be bringing clothes to change into. I'll come from work, hopefully with enough time to pick DH up, otherwise, we'll have three cars at the school again. That has happened twice already in DD2's short driving tenure.
DD1 isn't planning on coming home for Easter. She is traveling earlier that week for work, plus will be in town the following weekend for her friends bachelorette party and cousins bridal shower. The Friday before is my day off and DD2 doesn't have school. If it works out, we may take a short road trip and head across state lines and spend Friday and Saturday, heading home Saturday night. I've tried to arrange this multiple times, but her work or fun life have intervened to put off the trip. DD2 hasn't seen her apartment since her sister moved in over a year ago, with all her personal decorating touches. DH is thinking of coming along too, but then we'd not be able to stay over, or would have to find someone for the dog. Who would think a simple overnight trip would be so complicated to make happen?
I'm trying to be disciplined enough to post every day, perhaps trying out some writing prompt from writers sites like Post 40 Bloggers. As I am now Post 50, I wonder if I should find a different site for ideas. Suffice it to say, on days I clearly have no topics in mind, a random reflection or story may grace my blog page. If you write a blog, how do you decide what to write about when nothing particularly sparks your imagination? Do you simply choose to not post, or are you also using ideas form blogger sites? What would you like to read more of/less of from bloggers? Let's have a chat, shall we.
