Contemplation

Today has been quiet.

I was at the church for our annual general meeting this morning, then some research and writing for a bit this afternoon. I was supposed to head to Halkirk to take some photos this afternoon, however since I can barely see across the street, I decided that discretion was the better part of valour and stayed home. Old man winter decided to let us know that he wasn’t done with us yet.

This evening we have another dinner theatre showing of the play that’s running right now. Tonight will be the fourth of eight performances taking place over two weeks. I’m enjoying the show, but will be equally happy when it’s done for the season.

For the most part I am feeling pretty good at the moment. It feels like life is starting to settle out. I’m enjoying my work, and am finding it very meaningful. The paper is happy with the work I’m doing, and I am getting more work because of it.

I’m enjoying being part of the theatre group again. I’m even enjoying the day I am spending at the store once a week.

I’m worried about Lynn though. She’s seemed more distant lately. I can only imagine what she is going through, though. Losing her sister last year, and the medical issues she’s having that have yet to be resolved are a burden on her that I can’t imagine. I know she’s struggling, and I just wish I could do something to help her.

We did manage to take a time out though, and just have fun. On Wednesday night we went to Red Deer after she finished at the store so we could go to the “Celtic Illusion” show. It was an amazing show, with tap dancing, singing, and magic. It was definitely worth the time and money to go, and I’m glad we were able to.

I’m hopeful that we’ll get some answers for her medical concerns and that will help her.

In the meantime, all I can do is look after myself, and be there for her as much as I can. I know I can’t take on her burden, and that if I don’t look after myself I will be no help to either one of us. I’m just glad that after the last couple weeks I’m feeling a bit better.
