Could be worse -- we could let the people in Yellowknife define it. They're probably on the beach in shorts when it's 10 degrees C.

Wait you're not? Tongue I've walked down by the lake in shorts at that temp.

Need to think of a witty signature.

RE: Ranting corner
Probably more of a whine, but teaching six piano lessons on an instrument with several of the black-key covers missing is rather annoying.

Who's in the room where I've been giving piano lessons for the past seven months, the room that has a mediocre piano, but at least one with all 88 keys present and covered? The sax teacher. The SAX teacher. Who does not use piano in his sax lessons.

Also annoying: a high school with only two pianos, total, available for the private lesson program. (the decentish piano in the chorus room is off limits, and so is the decent keyboard in the music library)

It's time for beer.

RE: Ranting corner
Earlier today I was told my father died. I felt nothing. He was one of the meanest most spiteful people I have ever had the misfortune of knowing. I had not seen nor spoken to him in 17 years. My only reaction was relief that my mother would be getting his Social Security checks from now on. I am told when he was younger he was not that bitter person but I don't remember that. From the time I heard til now the only thing I have felt is a slight guilt at not feeling anything and maybe a touch of sadness that things were so bad between us that in the end nothing was there of a relationship most people cherish.

EA still grieves for her father a year and a half later, small things will remind her of him and she gets a tear in her eye and I can't even muster a wish to have spoken to my father again.

I totally get it. I so soooooo understand this.

And it's ok to feel the way you do.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I imagine that I will feel similarly when my mother dies. I have talked to her, by phone, only a couple times in about a dozen years.

I grieved when dad died. Though things were bad between us for many years of my life, he was much more my caregiver when I was little than mom was. He at least realized that I needed to have a meal now and then. And we talked a lot of stuff through in his last couple of years and he apologized for many things.

All I think I am going to be able to muster is trying to be supportive to my sister when mom's gone.

Not everyone who has a child is able to be a decent parent.

RE: Ranting corner
Company arrives today.

I'm exhausted, barely slept all night, had indigestion because I ate the wrong stuff at dinner.

Dodgy

Kitchen looks like a bomb went off, I have to make chicken parm


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces
