Day 102

Roses in the back yard

They aren’t the prettiest roses, nor is the bush well-formed, but I’m proud of them anyway. This is the first time since I transplanted the bush three years ago that it has bloomed. I almost cut the bush out last year, but I gave it another chance because it had a few green shoots. All good things come to those who wait…well, many good things.


I know I don’t catch all of the typos that I make while composing, but  I try. For instance, in the final sentence of the paragraph above, in the first “things” I originally had an o where the i should be. While that may have made for interesting reading, it would have detracted from what I was trying to convey.


One of these days I am going to try to write a posting that does not use the word “I.” I am not sure I can do that because, as I’m sure you’ve noticed, the blog is all about me. I am pretty self-absorbed, if I do say so myself. At least I am aware of that shortcoming. That’s more than most people can say, but then, they couldn’t say it if it wasn’t true. There are only two ways to deal with being self-aware of your self-absorption, 1) embrace it and declare it to the world (humorously if possible), or 2) try to hide it from everyone. I am not good at hiding things, so I am willing to talk about it. It’s just that no one seems interested enough to talk to me about it. I think they must be too self-absorbed. 


Tonight Cindy and I are going to Maely’s school Spring show, after visiting Flo in the nursing home. Yes, Flo was sent back to the nursing home, from the hospital, last night. I think she must get lonely because she said none of the Leap family had come to see her. Considering that she is a Leap, that is sad. Anyway, I hope Maely’s show isn’t boring.
