Things I'm contemplating today

After watching Good Morning America this morning for a few minutes: Is this whole Donald Trump thing a joke? Like, is someone going to jump out at some point and say - gotcha?

After scheduling a couple of college visits in May: Will the anxiety ever go away about the whole college thing and my first-born? If I think going somewhere local and living at home would be best for a year or two, should I make him do it or not?

After realizing my cell phone contract is up this month: How is a simple person like me supposed to figure out which smartphone might be best to get?

After talking with friends yesterday about going to NYC: What are the must-sees in NYC when you only have a few days, and part of that time will be spent meeting people?

After a few e-mails yesterday: What would I do without my wonderful, wise writing friends?

After my long walk with the dog yesterday: Is there anything better than standing underneath a blossoming cherry tree and just breathing?


  1. Looks like you have a lot on your mind!! :)

    My cellphone contract is almost up too and I will be upgrading to a smartphone. Debating on which is best for me. I hate touchscreen keyboards but I'm not sure I want a Blackberry.

    I didn't really see the Donald Trump was on the tv at the gym but I was siting still long enough to read the subtitles.

  2. Personally, I LOVE my iphone. But I'm a bit Mac-centric.

    And as someone who did the 'go to a small local college for the first 2 years and stay living at home' thing I can say that I'm very glad I went that route. I still went to and graduated from my dream school, but I didn't go there until I was really ready, knew what I wanted to major in, etc. Mind you, I started college at 16, so I had no choice but to stay at home (the parents were not going to let me move away that young). But even if I were older, I wouldn't have wanted to do it any other way.

    Miss you and ((hugs)) :)

  3. Amen on the Donald Trump thing! Ugh. As for the smartphone, I'm holding out for an iPhone. It'll be my prize when I sell my first book :)

  4. Yeah, we've been Trumped. Ick.

    As for NYC, I suggest tea or a drink at the Algonquin Hotel. I did it a few years ago and loved the notion of sitting where Dorothy Parker hung out. And I love Central Park.
