I'm having problems blogging lately. Each time I sit down at my keyboard, I find myself dealing with what I have to deal with, and then wasting time on a mindless game. My thoughts are simply not allowing themselves to be organized in any fashion, so writing them down is difficult, if not impossible.

so here is a list of not so organized thoughts I have been entertaining as of late:

On my way to work today, I passed a hedge of forsythia, of which I am quite fond. Which is funny, because really, they are only pretty for a few weeks, and then they are rather...woody, like a bunch of sticks stuck into the ground. I planted two forsythia shrubs a few years ago, but I killed them pretty quickly. I am fond of them for two reasons: a. they are early bloomers, and a signal of the beginning of spring, and b. my grandmother had big forsythia shrubs in her side yard when I was growing up, and you all know how nostalgic I am about my grandmother. Anyway, yellow makes me smile.

I keep getting bizarre songs stuck in my head, and I'm not sure where they come from. Yesterday was "Patience" by Guns n Roses, the day before that was "Landslide" by Fleetwood Mac, which I actually do quite like. My bizarrely clever cousin calls this phenomenon "earworm", I suppose because they get in there and wiggle about, and you can't get them out.

I'm still loving this job. I love the warm group of women in the office, the dedication of the staff, working with the patients, even the menial, day to day tasks. What I don't love is the fact that I have been computer-less 6 days out of the last 10. Making it difficult to do my job.

I have been taking pictures lately. I promised I wanted to try to take at least one photo a day, and I've succeeded more days than not. I find I feel a little more complete when I try to inject just a little creativity into each day.

At any rate, it is time to start working. If I don't get back on here this weekend (I have to do some major overhaul cleaning), have a lovely Easter weekend. I do love a good egg hunt.

Assuming I am the cousin of whom you write, I cannot take credit for the term "earworm." The Germans coined the phrase ("Ohrwurm"). And now that I have "Patience" going through my head, I will retaliate by telling you that I had "Oh Canada" stuck in my head for the entirety of the winter Olympics.

I know. I did too.

I'm also having problems with my thoughts holding still long enough to blog. I think it was easier before my family found it.

And, earworm? Appropriate...I have been battling this relentless nagging problem forever. In particular this week, though I'm not good with coming up with the names of mine. Thankfully, my last nap dislodged today's...
