Random thoughts

There are a number of thoughts rolling around in my head (think, marbles...or bowling balls) so I thought I'd write about them here.
  • In local news, Paul Levy, the CEO of BIDMC (whose blog Running A Hospital is in my blog-roll) had an "inappropriate" relationship with a younger woman whom he "mentored" for many years. This has been written about in the media ad nauseum, but I am not satisfied. Did he actually have an affair with her, or not? Somehow, I need to know this before I can really judge the situation. Does anyone else feel that way?
  • The warm weather has definitely put me in better spirits. I'm starting to wonder if New England weather isn't all that it's cracked up to be...
  • Not being nauseous has definitely put me in better spirits, too. Ditto for no more hot flashes. I almost feel normal again.
  • Since writing on this blog, I haven't been doing as much other writing. Is the blog sucking away my writing energy? If I ever want to get something published (in Brain, Child magazine, for example), I'm going to have to start writing again, for real...
  • Still haven't decided about Ritual committee and what I should do. Should I continue my involvement, and feel frustrated? Should I end my involvement? Should I send A in my stead and see if he can have any impact on them (he has offered to do so)? Argh.
  • This time of year always reminds me of when we first brought J to daycare at (what used to be) Gan Yeladim. There is some plant that gives off white fluffy stuff that blows around near Gan and near J's school (which is right near Gan) and it was doing it NINE years ago when we first brought him there, and it's doing it now...
  • J is still a very intense kid. Just the way he was nine years ago. Or, almost 11 years ago...
  • This time of year is always a bit bittersweet. The end of another school year, the beginning of summer. J, on the other hand, is very ready to be done with school. I think the entire school year has just interfered with his sports activities. He is ready to close the door... Also he is very excited about summer camp. He loves camp.
I guess that's it for now. Maybe more later...

Jealous of this! My mom is in Boston visiting family and I'm stuck in rainy Pacific Northwest. Hope you can enjoy it, I miss Boston summers, Boston winters on the other hand..
