Birthday Sunrise~ 
7th-Apr-2010 06:23 am
bday : charliemc
I woke up around 4:00am from a 'nap' and realized I still had two pretty ambitious tasks I needed to accomplish for work. It took me around 90 mins to write the little script for Sunday's clown graduation and compile the April events update for our board. I forwarded the former to those involved and the latter to Jeff, for his approval and addition.

By then it was rounding morning, so I closed up the house, brushed my teeth and contemplated going to bed (instead of couch). Then I started surfing LJ (which is alternating between maddeningly slow and average nonresponsive).

Now it's just minutes before sunrise, so why not wait and watch it happen? This is something I rarely do, and I seem to be doing it. I also seem to be fighting a little asthma attach or something . . . not sure why.

The past two days have been intense and somewhat uncharacteristic, laced with a certain amount of anger toward a co-worker whose Debbie Downer attitude went from vaguely annoying to outright infuriating. When I found out she had privately emailed two people on my team about something I oversee, I hit the ceiling and fired off a "strongly worded" email. I guess it nearly crumbled her, which makes me feel bad but no less adamant. The word of the day today is obdurate, and it might just fit the way I feel. (Not a pretty sight, by the way.)

Anyway, I'm putting this aside and watching the sun rise. Then I'm probably going to sleep for a while before deciding where to ride in what's supposed to be today's sunshine. We (I) could use a little of that. Sunshine, that is. And sleep. If I have to choose between the two, I'll probably go with the former.

and much love, may you be happy today and each day in the year to come!!

Gee, that pollen must be getting to me, because I'm going crazy right now. The sun *did* come out late today, so that must have put something into play. I'm snorting and snuffing and wheezing. I think this is going to be a difficult spring.

Thanks for the b-day greetings!

Hey Marylin!!! I wish you a HAPPY HAPPY BDAY!!!!!!! To start it with watching the sun rise is a very pretty and unique thing, I'd say! I hope you'll get the chance to see many pretty men today onscreen and off ;)

10th-Apr-2010 04:17 am (UTC)
Yes, yay for pretty men! Thanks so much.

Hey there sister Happy Birthday and many more to come. I just got off the telephone with Charlie and she said you were in the shower and then she needed to do the same. I bathed when you were watching the sunrise and then took Nicole to school, ran a few errands and came home to finish the laundry. I hope it clears up so you can take a nice ride and I hope we can have coffee on me before you go.

I want you to have a good day and take time for you. I have some small gifts and a couple of cards for you, so want to give them to you. The salmon fishing in the river is so crowded that a big barge just came up the river and had to blow his horn about thirty times just to get through the boats. I hear that they are catching a lot, but when I look out with the binoculars I don't see any being caught. Take care sweet sister and lets have 2010 be the best year ever. Love Sue

Thanks so much for the cards and bookends. I took them to work today so I can use them in my office when I get everything set up. I hope you can come see it next week.

And I loved the cards.

I'm going Monday to get my taxes done (finally!) and sign my re-finance papers. It's about time!

Sorry to hear that you have that tension involved with your day, but I hope you can set it aside for your sake.

I don't know if the sunrise brought anything to you, good or bad, but you waited for it and that in itself says something.

I'm sure you need to get some rest because that can put things in order at least well enough to enable you to deal with the sharp edges.

I'm going to have to look up that word, obdurate.

"The last two days have been intense ... laced with a certain amount of anger". Lol, Marilyn, that sounds like a sentence from a well written novel, the way you write makes me realize I love to read words that are put together well.

Keep your pretty head up girl, the sun will rise again another day.

And do have a Happy Birthday.

I love crafting sentences myself. Words are always fascinating to me, and sometimes choosing just the right ones can be an obsession. I think you appreciate it because you are a poet, and poets care more about words than average folk.

Did you look up obdurate? Certainly not a nice, friendly word, but a powerful one.

My birthday struck a strange chord in me this year, like it came too fast, like I was unprepared for it and had expected more. It was weird. I think part of it was the milestone age (another one!). I think part was that I had hoped I'd be in far better shape by my birthday, feeling and looking a lot better. I'm not sure.

Anyway, after all it was just another day. And it was a pretty nice one. Thanks so much for the greetings!

I did look up obdurate, so now I have a new word, lol.

It seems all my birthdays come up too fast for me and I feel unprepared for them.

Happy birthday!

Thanks, Becky. Best wishes to you!

A very happy birthday to you *hugs*

Thanks, Joanne!!! It's always great to hear from you.

That's a FABULOUS photo!!! Wow!!!
10th-Apr-2010 04:25 am (UTC)
Yay! I'm glad you liked it.

You had every right to be angry about what happened on Monday. I'm glad you both spoke up and emailed your feelings, because that was the correct action to take. Go, YOU!

Sorry the negativity happened, but glad you stayed positive (as always). I'm proud of you.
10th-Apr-2010 04:25 am (UTC)
Well, it's not like me to get so pissed. It's definitely created a strain, but that can't be helped. I'd rather be honestly angry than silently stewing. Life's too short for that!

Wow, I got thinking maybe what I said sounded wrong about the novel thing. But I didn't mean it in a bad way. It's just sometimes I, myself, want to express the way I'm feeling about something and can't find the words, let alone make it sound intelligent, lol.
10th-Apr-2010 04:26 am (UTC)
Hey, I loved what you said. Don't overthink your comment. I considered it a compliment, actually . . . the best kind, said naturally.
10th-Apr-2010 04:28 am (UTC)
Oh, hey, thanks for the virtual hug coupon!!!!!

Great icon! *hugs*
