Now, in Numbers May 30, 2017

Posted by indigobunting in Uncategorized.

29: Days since I’ve posted anything here.

131: Days since the administration change and beginning of darkness that has fallen o’er the earth.

140: Number of pages to go in Sinclair Lewis’s It Can’t Happen Here, a book that is freaking me the #*¢¡ out.

6: Days since Tim left quickly for Pennsylvania to be part of the vigil of his father’s dying.

6: Days during which I’ve been unsure whether I should be here or there.

106: Number of bird species I’ve allowed myself to list this calendar year.

0: Number I’ve added since Tim left (I’ve mostly stayed indoors).

1013: Number of things I’ve discarded in my quest to get rid of 2017 things in 2017. Hundreds of these came from three drawers in my home office.

14: Number of items I have on my running list of 153s, not yet posted.

5: Cookies I ate at work today—four tiny homemade-by-coworker sugar cookies and a Tokyo banana cookie from a just-returned-from-vacation coworker.

3: Number of dogs at the office today.

5: Number of dogs that are sometimes at the office.

6: Seriously, I think there was a day when there were this many dogs in that small office.

0: My tolerance for dog skirmishes (followed by their people skirmishes) while I am trying to work.

20: Approximate number of feet between me and Cake at their concert Saturday night for a few songs. I love Cake.

I’m so sorry to hear about Tim’s father. Big hugs…

(And I’m envious of your work environment. I think every office should have at least one dog, or even six if space permits.)

I’m also sorry to hear the news of Tim’s father, but I’m glad he was able to be there for it. I can understand your confusion over where you should have been at the time. You did what you both decided was right, and that’s all that is important.

Must have a look at that book that is freaking you the #*¢¡ out.

The “darkness that has fallen o’er the earth” – yes, it is a global phenomenon, though not quite as dark the further away we travel.

Well done on the three drawers. You’re three drawers ahead of me. I still have to clean off my desk!

Ugh, dog skirmishes. (Though, you work in an office? Not your office at home?)

Mmmmmm, cake. Oh wait …

Mali: Basically, I work at home. But I do visit my biggest client for meetings and to push paper (and sometimes work a little on site!).
