At 4 a.m. the rooster crowed. That was the alarm chosen for the wake up. School for the 2 hour well-paying job at a private wealthy school. The children are lovely.
Exercise sign up at a Wellness Center. Her neighbor was there. Stated she started to call her for wine yesterday. That would have been nice, she thought.
Her daughter-in-law called. Still in SC; flying back to CA tomorrow. Keeping the house. Father settled in assisted living and adjusting.
Car Tag…well this was a farce. She was not allowed to buy a tag because the name on the driver’s license and insurance card was different from the one the tag was purchased under for the last 10 years. She must produce the name change document; driver’s license, renewed this month, and the insurance card all over again. Buy a tag for January and then buy the yearly tag in February. This is truly messed up.
Where does it all end.
She called a friend to go to lunch; the friend was already out so that was not penciled out.
The meeting for tomorrow cancelled because the pipes are frozen in The Archives.
She called a friend who had broken pipes in her house and is living the backwoods life.
She played with her table of Rocket Pioneers; updating always updating.
Eating a ham sandwich and a banana nut muffin; she thinks she will call it a day…a Wednesday…
It seems that this is rather a mundane life compared to her past. Perhaps she is resting for the next round.
“The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.”
