Three Sisters of Fate

January 8, 2008 at 4:34 pm 6 comments

Yesterday was one of those weird winter days that keep me in Ohio.  The calendar may have said January, but the sun was shining and it was warm enough for just a sweater.  My car begged me to take her bonnet down, but I’m a grown up now, I resisted, and she had to settle for having all her windows open. 

The beautiful weather seemed to affect everything.  We had a calm and productive morning at the day job.  I actually ticked off more than half of the items cluttering up my “to do” list.      One of my dearest friends unexpectedly dropped by and took me to lunch.  I got my hair cut and was completely happy with the results.  Then I went home.  That was my mistake.    The three sisters of fate were giggling their silly little butts off all morning just waiting for their opportunity to send my thread skittering off into another direction. 

Pap is sick with yet another viral infection.  His doctor has advised that one of the arteries that was by-passed four years ago is once again clogged.  They want him to lose fifty pounds.  They want him to live a stress free life.  They want to evaluate the possibility of another quadruple by-pass.  His trio of Doctor’s want a lot of things that all boil down to Pap must give up the only thing he loves more in the world than me (his job/identity) and Kat must secure gainful, steady employment. 

Well fine then.  I am nothing if not resiliant.

    Sorry to hear about the health problems and I hope they can be remedied without too much trouble.

    It’s hard for someone to give up their career when they tie it to their identity.

    *sigh* I’m sorry to hear this Kat. A tough verdict for both of you – I wish you strength and boyancy on rough waters!

The free-lance writer is the person who is paid per piece or per word or perhaps. (Robert Benchley)

Welcome to My Neighborhood!

Shortly after I learned to use a spoon, I learned to use a pencil. Crippled by shyness as a child, I found that the things I couldn't say out loud, I could say with a pen, and then a typewriter. The shyness was overcome with education and age...but the need to write has never left me.
