soldiergrrrl: (Pink Rose)
Comes The Dawn
Author: Veronica A. Shoffstall

After a while you learn the subtle difference
Between holding a hand and chaining a soul,
And you learn that love doesn’t mean leaning
And company doesn’t mean security,
And you begin to learn that kisses aren’t contracts
And presents aren’t promises,
And you begin to accept your defeats
With your head up and your eyes open
With the grace of a woman, not the grief of a child,
And you learn to build all your roads on today,
Because tomorrow’s ground is too uncertain for plans,
And futures have a way of falling down in mid-flight.
After a while you learn
That even sunshine burns if you get too much.
So you plant your own garden and decorate your own soul,
Instead of waiting for someone to bring you flowers.
And you learn that you really can endure...
That you really are strong,
And you really do have worth.
And you learn and learn...
With every goodbye you learn.

So, I need to remember that pink glittery nail polish is a PITA to remove and I should remember to switch it more than 15 minutes before the new boss is scheduled to arrive...

Right now, I am so unmotivated that it's not even funny. I'm sleepy, too, which doesn't help.

Met the new boss, and she seems pretty cool. She's got a degree in law, a degree in theater, and rescues Labs and weiner dogs. (I have no idea how to spell Dachshaund...so, she rescues wiener dogs.)

I should get back on the pell, but I'm feeling so blah..and this weekend will be "clean up the garage" weekend so God only knows what half-finished projects we'll unearth there. I know we've still got the curved shield blank for me, although that's not been cut out or strapped yet.

Okay...off to do *something* to earn my paycheck.
