I have no specific focus for writing today. Just a bit of this, and a bit of that.

I'm starting to feel comfortable in my job. Many days but not all. It's a steep learning curve. My goal is to leave this job not necessarily enjoying it, but feeling like I know what I'm doing. I want to feel like I did it well, even if it wasn't fun. I'm gaining confidence. The clerk I work with is a charm - I don't think I would have made it this far without her.

It's bitterly cold. My poor puppy has had 10 minutes here and there of exercise while I throw the ball down the street for him. I pick up the ball and it freezes to my mitts. Stupid cold. It's a whole other category. Tonight the Husband is taking him for a real walk. I was invited. But I'm tired and pregnant and my back hurts. And darn it, I just don't feel like it. I just want to be in bed early. Thankfully, he obliges with no complaints.

This weekend we're getting together with a couple we met at church stuff. We often feel like we don't really have young couple friends to hang out with. Most likely we just don't initiate friendships either. We're looking forward to getting to know another young, married couple. Appetizers and a movie are on the menu. And I think they'll bring their dog.

*yawn* Is it bed time yet?

The first couple we met at church when we moved to Winnipeg 28 years ago still are 2 of our dearest friends. Here's hoping you'll find friendship with these people. And they have a dog! You've got to love people who have a dog!

I love listening to you "natter". And I love thinking of you being pregnant and the happy adventure your little one is going to bring you.
