The Challenge: 30 posts in 30 days

Another blogger whose blog I follow posted that she had read about posting 30 blogs in 30 days on a blog she follows. She decided to try it. I decided to copy her and try it too. I figure with as much as I love to talk, coming up with something to say every day for a month should be a piece of cake. Plus, I find writing to be very therapeutic and I think it will help to get some of the thoughts jumbling up my mind out of my head.

So, starting tomorrow, my goal is a post a day for the month of May. Yes, I realize there are 31 days in May. I can be an overachiever every now and then.

You know you spend too much time at the office when...

You know you spend too much time at the office when you log on to Mapquest from home and are surprised that your address is not in your list of saved and recently used places. And then it dawns on you-you can't find it because you are looking for your work address.

6-Word Poem

I have been listening to the Top 40 radio station that James used to listen to on my way home lately. I would listen to this station more often but I cannot stand one of the morning hosts. Plus, I really don't like listening to people yammer on first thing in the morning so I listen to a station with very little talking and lots of good music.

Anyway, the past couple of days, I have heard a commercial for the morning show and apparently, at some point, they had listeners call in with a 6-word poem to describe their lives. I thought about it, and if I had heard it live and called in, this would be my poem:

"Widowed too young,
what happens now?"

I wonder if I would have made it on the air with that one? But, more importantly, I do wonder what happens now? I am not good with the unknown, and I'm not really a big fan of surprises. I know that I have to keep moving forward, as hard as that can be, but it would really help if I knew what it is I am moving towards.
