waiting...thinking...starting over?

Since my car crash a month and a half ago, I've been doing some thinking: about life and about choices...mine, of course. And I've been doing some waiting - I've looked around a bit at cars in my price range, but nothing has been right, and something in me keeps hesitating. I found myself really questioning the choices I have made in my life up 'til now, but J. rightly pointed out that it's just no good to go around lamenting your life. So I guess that all adds up to, time to make some changes! I am thinking a lot about slowing down, being part of the world around me, paring things down. I'm feeling really positive about giving life as a one-car family a serious trial run. J. and I can ride together most days...the metro bus runs an easy line from close to the apartment to just outside my workplace...the Vespa idea is still in play....and I have become totally enamored of the concept of commuting on a bicycle.

Introducing...President Bartlett!

This is President Bartlett. He ran out onto a very busy street, under the truck in front of us. 1st miracle: I managed to nab him in time. He is just 7 weeks old - couldn't find a mother cat or siblings anywhere. He is the most precious kitty! Right now we are looking for our 2nd miracle: he is fighting for his life against a heavy case of Coccidiosis. We have about 20 hours to go before we will know if he'll make it. Good luck baby B!
