LIFE IN BALANCE

On the one hand:
  • Leaving work early yesterday (because the network was down) and taking advantage of a sunny afternoon to go for a walk and leaving work early today (half day before a holiday) with my to-do list whacked nearly all the way down

  • The wonderful breadth of a 4-day weekend stretching out before me, part of which has been kept unscheduled except for puttering about the house, furniture shopping and walks in the sunshine or rain, as the case may be, and part of which has been filled with things to look forward to including a childfree evening out with Anders' sister and her husband at a very good restaurant, and going to see The Vagina Monologues with a bunch of friends

  • Listening to Martin's end of term piano recital this afternoon in which was included a simple ditty of his own composing

  • Using the word ditty

  • Driving into town to have sushi with the kids and my good friend brief_therapy

  • Being stopped at a city traffic light, while a large flock of adult geese shepherded their clumsy, lopsided fuzzy teenagers ACROSS THE CROSSWALK

  • Finishing one very good book (A Girl Named Zippy by Haven Kimmel) and immediately starting its long-anticipated sequel
And on the other
  • Not being able to reassure and comfort my other half who is feeling rather down right now

  • Having to chastise Karin for disobedience and poor judgment

  • Feeling awful for a best friend who is saying goodbye to her dying father
