The laundry is done. I watched NCIS and the last two episodes of Numbers over the weekend.

After a couple of cloudy days and some rain, there is sunshine again. The cooler temperatures feel nice, as opposed to the hotter weather we had last month.

It’s nice to see the price of gas below $3 again. Thankfully, I have to drive only 5 minutes to get to work. It’s been nice for the past year to work so close to home. I’m hoping to start working from home in January. My mom lives with me but I’m concerned about leaving her all day. I’m waiting for the approval from my manager, once the budget is set for next year.

I watched SNL last night. Aside from Watching Sarah Palin in the opening skit, it reminded me of why I don’t watch the show. What was funny about the skit of a man asking his girlfriend to marry him? The show doesn’t appeal to me.

I like to watch/read mysteries, sci-fi, news programs, and, of course, music shows. I saw a preview of a new show that starts on Nov. 1. It’s called Legend of the Seeker, based on books by Terry Goodkind. It looks interesting.

God bless us, everyone!

Do I need a title?

Just finished watching the presidential debate. Whoever wins ... may God be on his side!

It's been a busy, rainy day. I work in a group that converts new banks onto our product. I enjoy it. Anything that makes me think, learn and tax my brain has my vote. Small joke. Ok, ok, I like small punny jokes. Get that from my dad.

I decided to start up my journal again. Nothing fancy. Never was one to keep a diary. Just want to motivate myself to write. What do I write? Poetry. I don't write flowery words on a canvas. It’s not my style. I’m a direct person. I say what I mean and mean what I say.

This is my first step … a baby step maybe … but at least I’m doing it. My choice to put this in a public forum, although no one may wind up reading it, is to help me face my fear of exposing my inner self to the world. Deep breath, hit the “Add Entry” button, I’m on my way.

Can't believe it's been so long since I last wrote in my journal. So much has been going on. Mom sold her house. My job is only good until next summer, as long as they don't change their minds and move the date. Our group is growing smaller and smaller as our customers move over to other products within our company. It doesn't bother me too much right now. I know I'll survive.
Went to NJ in August for my niece's wedding. Wasn't sure about mom on a plane but she did okay. My niece was radiant as a bride should be.
Since mom sold her house, we don't have to travel out there all the time. It's easier on me. We still have half a garage full of boxes, as well as a storage unit. I want to empty the garage before yearend and move the stuff from the storage unit into the garage. Don't need to be spending all that extra money for storage with my job in question for next year.
It's autumn. Time for cooler weather, colorful trees ... well ... maybe up north. This part of Texas is still warm and, with the drought we're in, the leaves on the trees will only shrivel up and die. I enjoy looking at pictures of autumn scenery even if it's somewhere else.
Time to move on.
