Senseless Blabbing

Out of life's school of war: What does not destroy me, makes me stronger.
Friedrich Nietzsche, The Twilight of the Idols
I have been doing bare bones journaling in the past few weeks because I was real busy. As I related to you about a month ago, a lot of  life changing events happened to me and my family. No need to be alarmed. They are positive changes. I got a new job and I gave my present job a thirty day notice so I was so busy trying to tie ends before I hand my job to the person who will replace me. I am flying to Virginia to train for my new job and will be there for two weeks. I have never left my children for an extended period of time so I am really scared.  Then we put our home in the market and it sold so quick my head was on a spin. We underestimated the real estate market in our city. We thought it will take a while to sell it so we decided to put it on the market thinking that it will sell around the time our new one is built. So I was dialing like crazy during my lunch breaks to line up movers and a place to stay. To top it all off, of all the times these changes could be happening,  they happened while hubby is on an extended business trip in Germany!  No, this is not a pity party. Since this is my journal, I could whine a bit, can't  I?  

I went to Poetry.Com and tried my hand on their Haiku section. I was intrigued by the pic so I wrote a haiku. Hope you enjoy it.

 

                    

gnarled, exposed and dry
waiting for the forest fire
to end misery

The haiku is great!  Now, this is the second time today I have had to write this in a comment...
You are not whining!
I am the queen of whining, so I should know!  You do sound busy.  Maybe I will go take a nap on your behalf...JAE

What a whirl wind you've been in.  No wonder there haven't been a lot of entries.  Can't wait to hear how your training trip/adventure turns out.  Enjoy it.  Don't worry so much that you can't find the fun in it.
