This is where I go out on a limb and ponder a while.

Introvert Update

More thoughts on the birthday party:  First off, German Chocolate Cake.  Oh my, it's the one thing I never indulge in, and it's soooo good!  So I'll be having a big slice of that! I think I'll ask M. to double the frosting on the cake, just for good measure.

Second strategy:  Remember the saying, "How do you eat an elephant?  One bite at a time"?  That's how you deal with a room full of people - one person at a time.  I may not deal well with a crowd, but I happen to be pretty skillful one-on-one because I'm a good listener.  So I'm looking forward to playing catch-up with some people I haven't seen in a while.

This morning I saw a story about hot-air balloon rides on the news and I told my husband that we should do that and he said "No".  When I asked him why not, he said it's too unpredictable because you don't have enough control over where you go and where you land.  Imagine that - it's usually me that's so overly cautious.

I've been invited to go to Las Vegas for a weekend with some gals to celebrate a divorce.  I know it's someone's way of letting go of the old and making room for the new.  But somehow, for me, it just doesn't feel right to celebrate, and even if I could afford it, which I can't right now, I don't think I could go.  Haven't figured that one out yet.

Still warm, wet, sloppy winter - I DON'T MIND!!! :)
Have a great day!
