Today has just been a weird day.
At C Lo's suggestion, I went outside this morning to look for green worms on my tomato plants. I admit I was a bit apprehensive and thought I might be really grossed out if I saw one. But I looked and looked and it's like they're ghosts or something. I didn't see a darn thing.
I went to my awkward luncheon today. The presentation (all about making and being a female partner at a law firm) seemed nothing more than a bunch of hot air to me. And of course one of the presenters was 8 mos pregnant, so all I could think about was, "Lucky you...one month to go." The presenter whom I formerly worked with was the biggest airbag of all. Talking about how to have balance with family and work. Yeah, right, she's got no kids and recently split from her husband. I guess the whole "balance" thing didn't really work out for her. The only good thing about the luncheon was running into a good friend from law school whom I adore. She and I agreed we must meet for lunch at least once a month to talk and laugh and cope with the insanity. She's doing family law - divorces and custody hearings - which sounds like hell in a court room if you ask me. She thinks she's getting an ulcer and she's barely 30 years old.
This afternoon my neighbor came over and rang the doorbell. He and his brother live together in a house left to them by their grandfather, who was the original owner. The guys are in their early 30's. The older brother has a utility work truck. You know, like a pickup but with lockers or cabinets or whatever along the sides of the bed, to store tools and things for his construction work. Well, at 3:20 this afternoon, the one brother looked out the kitchen window and saw some guys ransacking the utility truck, which was backed into the driveway! They got robbed in broad daylight while at home! He saw the car, but it had no license plate on it, so he presumes it's a stolen vehicle. He was pretty freaked out and upset. Uh, yeah, me too. We certainly don't live in a "bad" neighborhood, but crimes of opportunity seem to be on the rise.
So, I'm just in this weird place at the moment and waiting to snap back into a feeling of normalcy.
