Praying for Christina

My second oldest friend, Christina, is going in for breast surgery tomorrow to remove a lump. It'll be an outpatient procedure, but she's still nervous. I'm praying that she's gonna be fine. I'm supposed to call her on Saturday.

No word from Karen M., but our friend Laura (whom I did not send to check up on her) says she saw her and she seems to be doing well. sigh. All I can do is wait. And hope.

Karen B. came over to my desk today just before noon and declared she wanted spicy chinese. I think this is the first time Karen has invited me to lunch, rather than the other way around. We've been getting together at work a lot lately, and I hope this trend continues--I really like Karen, and want to spend more time with her.

If I didn't like them so much, I'd say I have too many Karens in my life.

TL was, as of last night, in labor but not dilating. Sheesh. This kid does not want to be born.

One phrase from my conversation with Arthur yesterday morning is still stuck in my brain. He said there's an old chinese saying: "Unless you change your direction, you will wind up where you are going."

Right now, I thing I'll point myself in the direction of bed. :)
