Pensive Mary
Today has been a tough day. I was writing a post about my old dog, Willow, but couldn’t summon the energy or feeling to make it work.


I’m so worried about screwing up at my job right now. I work as part of a team to implement a new software system throughout the company. Our factories exist in several buildings. We are implementing in our third factory, with the fourth and largest building implementation to occur in November this year.

This week, I will spend two days supporting software training and two days doing the training. Because there are several shifts, training lasts from 7 AM to 10 PM on a couple days. 

Another part of my job consists of documenting the new work instructions that people need, which is what I’m better at than I am at doing standup training. 

Next week, I’ll be on the factory floor answering people’s questions from 5:30 AM to 4:30 PM.

To have so much going on at work when my brain is struggling to function and I haven’t been sleeping well, it’s just not a good thing. Did I mention that my husband and I work at the same company? It doesn’t get better than this…

It’s also not a good thing that the writing I do to express myself and cope feels like it’s left me. 

I don’t want to drivel on about all the ugly things going on and how I’m not handling them all that well.

I have an image to keep going here.

So I hope you’ll forgive the lack of creativity I’m going through.

I will try to keep supporting all of you in your blogs. Right now, it’s much more pleasant to read about other people’s lives, than it is to write about my own.

But I’m sure that zany girl of the past will return, full of even more adventure and surprises.

If not, maybe Murphy can start writing this blog…

My first blog post. I’m feelin’ the pressure. I’ve been brainstorming about these really funny stories to tell, but now, nothin. So I figured if I just got this first post over with, maybe the next ones will pour out of me.

My friend Bev and I got together in January and made treasure maps of the things we want to manifest in our lives. Treasure maps and manifesting seem like such “Law of Attraction” cliches, but maybe it will help me focus on what’s really important to me. I’m so tired of time passing by and every year promising myself that this year will be the year I:

  • Get off my property with my horses and do some real trail riding.
  • Finish writing at least one of the books I started nine years ago. 
  • Get published.
  • Have drawings in my art journal that even in the slightest way resemble something Hannah Hinchman has done.
  • Find an outlet for my music. Not sure what yet – community band, church group, be a street corner musician… 
  • Teach my dog to skijor. This is a totally new aspiration but it looks like so much fun and she needs an outlet for her energy.

I’m getting too old to be putting things off. So here I go.
