The may theme for NaBloPoMo (they do a monthly theme for those wishing to extend the challenge past the November one) is LOOK UP. Momentarily I considered taking up that challenge. I need to pay more attention to my somewhat neglected little blog. I need to start sharpening my optimism, givien my pending unemployment. It was like happenstance right there in my email box.
And then I remembered how hard NaBloPoMo is, put the thought out of my head, and went to bed.
This morning I got up early to do a little work at home before getting ready for the work day. That’s my usual daily routine. I get up before everybody else, turn the heat up to get the dampness off the house (if required), turn on the dryer or dishwasher( if required), plug in the kettle or coffee machine (always required), and wait on the deck for the dog to finish his morning business before I sit down at the computer to do paperwork for part-time Job 2.
Only this morning, right at the moment I stepped out on the deck and closed the door behind me, I realized that I had not unlocked the door. We have one of those doorknobs that stays locked from the outside unless you unlock it from the inside. And the second the door clicked closed I knew what I had done. So I spent the first 15 minutes of my morning running around outside in my jammies and LOOKING UP to knock on the windows.
The irony has not escaped me.
I am not herein committing to 31 blog posts in 31 days. But, we’ll see….. maybe….. possibly…..
