just some thoughts

JIMMY STARTED HIS NEW JOB YESTERDAY...HE IS REALLY HAPPY AND LIKES IT.....HE HAD ORIENTATION YESTERDAY AND TODAY AND TOMORROW HE STARTS AT 6AM...HE STILL HASN'T BEEN TOLD THE EXACT SHIFT HE WILL WORK...AS I'VE ALWAYS SAID, MY HUSBAND IS A FLEXIBLE MAN, AND WILL WORK HARD AND DO HIS BEST IN WHATEVER SITUATION.  HE WAS FITTED FOR A 'HARDHAT" TODAY, AS HE IS IN THE FACTORY AND HAS TO "INSPECT' THINGS WHEN THERE......HE IS INSPECTING THE TEMPERATURES, ETC,,,,,,,,,,IT IS A POULTRY/TURKEY PLANT.......

WE SPOKE TODAY, AS USUAL SEVERAL TIMES......HE CALLED ME AS SOON AS HE GOT BACK FROM ORIENTATION...THEN HE CALLED ME EVERY TWO HOURS AFTER THAT, ON THE CELL PHONE, AS I WENT ABOUT DOING SOME ERRANDS OUTSIDE..........THAT IS MY HUSBAND FOR YOU!.....HE LOVES TO KEEP TRACK OF ME, AND I LIKE IT THAT WAY, TOO!.....HE CALLED ME AT 12NOON, THE AT 2PM (I WAS STILL HOME), AT 3;30 (I HAD JUST LEFT THE POST-OFFICE, TO MAIL HIM SOME STUFF, AND WAS AT THAT MOMENT OPENING THE TRUNK OF THE CAR TO PUT SOME GROCERIES IN THAT I HAD BOUGHT), HE CALLED ME AT 5;30 (I WAS OUTSIDE, WALKING THE DOG....I CARRY MY CELL PHONE AND WIRELESS PHONE WHEN OUTSIDE.............AND HIS LAST CALL CAME AT 9PM, AS I WAS JUST STARTING TO WATCH 'AMERICAN IDOL" ON TV........................SO, AS YOU CAN SEE, THE PHONE IS AN IMPORTANT PART OF OUR EXISTENCE.

WELL, LIFE GOES ON AS USUAL FOR ME....NOTHING EXCITING.  I JUST WAIT FOR THE SPRING.....AND NOW, I KEEP HEARING ON THE RADIO ANOTHER BIG SNOWSTORM IS ON IT'S WAY................WELL, I'M NOT GOING TO WORRY ABOUT IT......LET IT SNOW AS MUCH AS IT WANTS, BECAUSE IN A FEW WEEKS IT WILL BE SPRING!.........THE RADIO ANNOUNCERS HERE, IN NEW JERSEY, JUST LOVE TO 'BUILD UP' THE TENSION IN THE AIR ABOUT SNOWSTORMS THAT ARE ON IT'S WAY...THEY DO THAT DATS AHEAD OF THE STORM...........THEY MAKE PEOPLE PANIC................AND SO, ON BEHALF OF 'SNOW," I'D LIKE TO 'DEFEND" IT........SNOW IS DOING WHAT IT IS MEANT O DO!...SNOW IS NOT DOING ANYTHING OUT OF THE ORDINARY........THE POOR SNOW IS FALLING OUT OF THE SKY, ONTO THE EARTH, AS GOD WANTS IT TO DO...........AND SO, I WILL LOOK AT "SNOW" NOT AS A 'MONSTER, " BUT AS A NATURAL OCCURANCE IN NATURE...........AND THEN, IT WILL SEEM BEAUTIFUL TO ME (ALTHOUGH I CANNOT WALK IN IT OR GO OUTSIDE).

TODAY I MAILED 2 MORE STORIES I HAVE WRITTEN FOR MAGAZINES..........'NEWSWEEK," AND 'CATHOLIC DIGEST.".........WELL, I THOUGHT I'D GIVE IT A TRY............EVERYONE THINKS WRITING IS EASY, BUT IR TAKES A LOT OF DISAPLINE, ENERGY, CREATIVITY, STAMINA, AND CONTINUAL FAITH THAT "YOU CAN DO IT,"  DESPITE ALL THE REJECTION SLIPS YOU GET.........YES, EVEN THE BEST AUTHORS IN OUR WORLD HAVE GOTTEN MANY REJECTION SLIPS....BUT THAT DID NOT STOP THEM FROM WRITING.  AND SO I AM CONTINUING TO WRITE, AND I AM NOW WAITING FOR ANSWERS FROM AROUND 3 OR 4 STORIES I HAVE SENT IN IN THE PAST COUPLE OF MONTHS.  IN MY HEAD RIGHT NOW, I HAVE STORIES ALL LINED UP....CAN YOU IMAGINE!.......I'M DOING IT ALL NOW THAT JIMMY IS IN KINTOCK, BECAUSE WHEN HE COMES HOME, I WILL BE CONCENTRATING MY ENERGIES ELSEWHERE.............................WELL, THAT MIGHT LEAD TO SOME NICE ROMANTIC STORIES.........HMMMMMMM.

GOOD-NIGHT, ALL.....AND THANK-YOU FOR READING MY JOURNAL...........IT IS YOU, YES YOU, WHO ARE READING THIS JOURNAL AND LEAVING COMMENTS AND E-MAILS, THAT MAKE THIS JOURNAL WHAT IT IS..........LOVE,FRAN
