I'm not one to complain

Bummer or not a bummer, that is the question
probably not, but even if it is, forget about it. That's what I usually try to do, but I was just starting to mull about it, which is not the best thing to do
I am only a "muller" on occasion, and this is not an occasion to do so.

Sisters Peg, Deb, Jeane alike in so many ways, yet different in just as many ways
the sameness is downright spooky, while the differences are to be expected.
Love is in the air

A few years ago, Hope came to stay
and now there's Love in the air, the kind of Love a whole bundle of it that can actually be held in this ever-loving grandma's arms. And that bundle proves that "love at first sight" does exist, at least as far as grandbabies go
yes, I have another "sweet everythings" to Love with a capital "L".
Understating your qualifications is how many steps back?

I was talking to one of my sons last night about searching for a new job, as I'd been to another interview yesterday. I was qualified for the position and, in fact, was probably uniquely qualified for the particular position payroll, accounts receivable and payable, marketing, and Web maintenance
for a dental office I could just step into the position without breaking my stride. However, they may balk because I am soooo qualified and what it will cost them in dollars for someone who already knows what they are doing.
But what Bill was really talking about was getting the interview (and serious consideration) in the first place. That employers might balk at even calling me, that the fact that I am so qualified disqualifies me for even a first consideration. His solution? Dumb down my resume
gee, I haven't done something like that since high school, when I didn't want the guys to be intimidated by my braininess
one step forward and however many steps back.
Ramifications well after the fact
04.01.09 - 12:42 am (CT)
I always knew that whatever I decided to do, that there would be ramifications of that decision, but I had hoped to lessen the aftermath by how I dealt with it. Divorce was not my first choice, but it was my last choice, a choice that I ruminated about for years before finally making. I gave the marriage every chance before concluding that it was a lost cause
and the very last chance went right up to the moment I signed the final papers
noun: a development that complicates a situation
Well, something has come up in the last few days that I'm having to deal with, and dealing with it I am. No, it wasn't the letter or the call
, but has as much to do with him and his problems as not, because it involves someone else very close to me who is swimming against the aftermath's currents. I've had to reveal more of what really went on, more than I really wanted to, but felt it necessary to help that person to cope with it all.
Ya know, it wasn't even a direct result of the divorce, but then this much after the fact it's much more likely to be more of a ripple effect that keeps lapping at the lives of those I love.
