Lying at work

How freaking hard is it to do a circuit of the office doors and verify that they are locked? To check the door by the admin assistant’s one has to walk past my office. If I’m here, just let me know that I’m the last in the office and don’t set the alarm. Don’t lie to me and say that at 6:30 I had my lights off and my car wasn’t in the parking lot. You just make yourself look like an ass, especially when I have the proof that the alarm company called when I set the motion sensors off going to the printer at 6:55 pm.

DS in a Fight at School.

Did I tell you all that my DS#1 got in a fight at school? Some kid was bragging about how his PSP was the best thing to take on vacation and DS#1 started debating him about how he had something that was even better than PSP. The fight started when the PSP kid said, “Why would anyone want to read on vacation?” DS#1 shot back with, “Yeah, I guess that would require too much brainpower for a moron like you.” That’s when the kid threw a punch.

The principal was laughing too hard at the witness statements to suspend my son (who never threw a return punch, just kept dancing out of the way until the moron punched the wall and injured himself). The PSP kid on the other hand gets to stay home and play his game for 3 days.

Some thoughts on the True Nature of Things

If Life is Infinite, this is not Life.
Dr. Wayne Dyer “The Power of Intention”

One reason for frustration in mortality is the subconscious knowledge that Time is not an Eternal concept. As spiritual beings we are not used to the constraints of time. We have to wear wristwatches but we don’t carry rulers. We need reminders of a concept that our eternal selves have difficulty fathoming.
– Paraphrase of Neal Maxwell from All These Things Shall Give Thee Experience.

You are a spiritual being having a mortal experience.
Deepak Chopra

I have the best husband…

Have I told you all that I have the best husband in the whole world? He decided that he wanted me to start the new year totally relaxed and at peace. So last night he throws me in the tub with candles and bubbles and the book of new Valdemar short stories by Mercedes Lackey. After about 2 stories (about 45 minutes) he tells me the masseuse has arrived and I’m needed in the basement bedroom. After a 90 minute massage, I was so ready to be poured into bed when the therapist asked if I would mind his practicing some energy work since he’s a little rusty on it. This of course caused me to hit panic since nothing hurts more than someone tweaking the biorhythm when they don’t know what they’re doing. However, he was one of the first massage therapists in ages to actually get my neck and shoulders fully released and I have been off balance all December, so he probably couldn’t do much damage. While I’m debating this, Blair (the MT) tells me that the only reason he mentions it is that my aura is so strong he can see where it’s off and what to do to correct it. This sets off my DH’s BS receptors but it let me know that I could solve this with a simple question. “So where’s it off?” He answered correctly so I let him “center” me. Have I ever mentioned that I can see aura’s on occasion and usually in color? I can’t see my own except on rare occasions. While he was centering me, I could actually see my own aura and help with it. That final step left me filled with relaxed energy which is a great way to end a massage.

On Isolation…

I’ve run into many women this past year who indicated that they felt left out, that they didn’t have any close friends in the neighborhood and that they didn’t know what to do to make friends. I keep joking that I’m going to get all those women together and have a party so they can get to know each other.
Today at church they announced a change in the Enrichment program. Instead of a once a month meeting with a lesson and activity, they will now have 6 lesson meetings and they encourage us to come up with ideas for smaller get-together type things where we can get to know others in the neighborhood without having a church type activity. I would love to have people over for quilting or stitching or a game night. I just keep thinking that we’re all so afraid of letting people know who we really are and then we feel isolated because we don’t learn and share with each other.
As one person said today, if you’re isolated and lonely – it’s time to reach out of yourself and put some effort into getting to know others.
