Outta Focus

That’s what I am lately. So much is going on around, so random and disconnected, that I don’t have the chance to give anything the attention that it deserves. For this, I am so off-balance these days. Not just these days. It’s been going on for quite a while now.

Speaking of being outta focus, I bought a new pair of glasses last week. I really like them. They are sleeker than the last pair. Let’s see if they can draw the positive attention I’m needing from a special somebody… I’m afraid it might take more than a new pair of spectacles to make me the spectacle I’d like to be.

Maybe I should sit down and make a list.

I most relate to Sex & the City’s Miranda, and making a list at a time like this sounds like something that she’d do to try and sort herself out. By the way, I went to see the Sex & the City movie on Sunday evening with four utterly fabulous friends. So worth the 11k. I’ll probably end up in the cinema a second time for this one. However, I didn’t like the way it ended. I’m not that forgiving. Plus, I really wish we didn’t need someone else to make us complete.

…Back to the list. I need priorities. Walking aimlessly is tiresome and I never end up anywhere, not knowing if I’m making progress, regressing or just stuck in the same ol’ same ol’.

Alice: Would you tell me, please, which way I ought to go from here?
The Cat:
That depends a good deal on where you want to get to.
Alice:
I don't much care where.
The Cat:
Then it doesn't much matter which way you go.
Alice:
…so long as I get somewhere.
The Cat:
Oh, you're sure to do that, if only you walk long enough.

My friend Erin always made lists. I guess it helped her out. Me, I always lose my lists when I make them. However, last Friday, I made a very detailed list, and I ticked off each item as I made my trek all over town. Yes, I felt productive. It was kind of fun. I even made it to the gym! I need to get there more often. I was out a couple of weeks ago, and someone commented on the gut I’m forming. Not what I wanted to hear.

Just wanted to say hi! My sister and I went to see the Sex and the City movie this past weekend. It was fabulous! Afterwards I was talking to my Mom and told her what we had just seen. She said "oh" in the most disappointed sounding voice it actually made me laugh out loud. I told her I didn't think she could have sounded more disappointed in me if she had tried. It was funny. So what are your summer plans?
