Can't Sleep, Neither Can iGoogle Fox

igoogle fox night

It's 2:30am and I just can't sleep. Very unlike me. Could be due to coffee had today at noon, but unlikely. I started to install QuickBooks today in my new room which is so pleasant to be in, and I swear I keep dreaming about it. I go in and out of dreams about Brothers and Sisters and the expense and income accounts I haven't created yet in QuickBooks. So I've put some water on in my pot for chamomile tea because I still have not decided on a kettle. Maybe after all is said and done I'll find a way to go to GoodWill via subway and see what I can find, as inspired by this post.

I was also jarred a bit by a small family from our building moving their daughter back into their apartment. It's a family of women, actually, a mother and her two daughters. One daughter is a professional now, and the other was a sprightly thing who I met when I first moved into this building 5 years ago. She was a hippie child and always threw imaginary "sparklies" on me when she left the elevator. It was like saying "goodbye!" but instead she said "sparklies!"

She went to college and came back during the summers, and now she's really back, today being her graduation. And it hit me. A whole mini lifetime of 4 years passed for her while I knew her, yet my life stayed the same pace. My life has had many changes in that time, actually, but it was odd to see her life fold over those 4 years. Made me realize, yet again, how quickly time passes.

:: pause to reflect ::

Ok. So now that we've had that thought, I'm moving into constructive mode and attempting to switch my blog into the new Blogger mode, which means I will lose my sidebar and analytics code, as experienced by me on my experimental other blog.

I have moments of reflection like these...more so this year, although as of late, I've been distracted with packing. I sometimes feel as if things are not changing as quickly as I'd like for them too, although I suspect I'll feel a lot differently after the move, as that as what has consumed most of my thoughts for the past two years.

You keep recommending cute stuff! I have that little google fox and I love watching him eat, fish, and drink tea. Heehee! :0)

I also love that all of my news articles download automatically to the page. I can never have too much int'l news.

Thanks! I love the fox. He's playing his asian guitar for the ducks right now. So cute.

Yeah, it's a scary thought, but then again, maybe it was weird to have it, in that I was aware of it. Where as in college I was not aware of it, I was just living it. Mlle Smith, I would say that you have had quite a time! And in fact, I have to go catch up on your packing. But I guess we do have to make sure we don't linger too long in one place...right?

Hi there!
Thanks. I took NyQuil the next night, which should not become a habit since it can make waking up very sluggish. But feeling better now. :)
