Thank God for the weekend

04 Apr

So. It’s been a rough week.

Sunday I spoke with a very old friend and learned about a terrible tragedy that has happened to her and her family. I’m not going to talk about it here. I don’t feel it’s my place to air her business throughout the interweb. Suffice to say though, it shook me up as well as Brian. My heart just breaks for her and there’s no amount of words that can make it better. A little part of my mind has just been focused on her all week.

Monday we went to a talk on globalization and energy. Advice: Do not ever do this. Basically we can’t continue to support the world as it grows and continues to demand energy. The rich get richer and can afford energy. The poor get poorer and use poor energy sources because they can’t afford not to. At some point we’re going to break the system and all hell will break loose. Very depressing.

Tuesday my boss came in and told us about this web site that says the Mayans were right. Their calendar ended in 2012 and here are seven reasons why the world will end in 2012. Most of the things they mentioned were off the chart insane but still… things I did not need to think about. The poles switching places, the Earth deciding to rotate the opposite direction, giant volcanos, etc.

Today I found out that our friend Jen had her baby today/last night. At 32 weeks. I’m hoping and praying for them now. Hopefully everything will be fine. A 32 weeker is pretty advanced as far as the NICU goes, but still it’s a very frightening situation and one I wouldn’t wish on anyone.

The very silliest thing. My mom is on vacation with her sisters in Florida and I haven’t wanted to interrupt their vacation with bad news. So I’m waiting for her to come home to talk to. Normally we talk 3 or 4 times a week and I just really want to talk to my mom. She makes life feel better.

Tonight we’re going to dinner with friends and I’m hoping we can talk about happy things. My (very pregnant) cousin is being induced on Sunday night and hopefully next week will start with the joy of new life. Some weeks it’s hard to see the sunshine through the rain. But at least I know the rain will go away.
