I am realizing that I am only beginning to comprehend the changes that are taking place around me. As the entire family attempts to return to "normal life" - although it will never seem normal without Mom - the three of us have to figure out how to fit into four holes. That's the best analogy I can think of.

I've been chosen for a new position at work which will allow some recognition by colleagues of work I've been doing since I arrived in 1993. My profession doesn't deal well with change but I prefer a structural reorganization to paycuts, layoffs, and furloughs. The organization of the reorganization will also create much less stress for everyone, including students.

Most importantly, I am realizing I have to apply my goal-driven personality (some would say that is an understatement in describing me) in a selective manner in order to ultimately achieve some goals - especially to those that involve other people. And most of life does do that.

It will be great to have a primary focus next week rather than being pulled in so many different directions. The, by the end of the week, I'm sure I'll be ready to go in different directions all at once again. Also important is my continuing to learn to be patient with myself. Being aware of something in an intellectual way does not mean we can incorporate it into our psychological selves.

Now I'm going to take advantage of the cool weather to wash the bugs off the car - an  unintended consequence of summer driving.
