so this week has been a week of missed connections and stalled out motors. a week of seemingly no progress whatsoever. i have a new years resolution to meet every facebook friend i had as of january 1, 2011 and damn, i haven’t gotten any further along since this past saturday. stalled at f2fb friend #229.
on monday, i had a hide under the covers day and bailed on a facebook galpal i haven’t seen in a couple of years. on tuesday, i figured out that my cellphone’s memory card (sim card? sd card? what?) was busted and my contact list failed. i had a definite date to meet up with a facebook friend after my appointment with the indian visa people–but i couldn’t call to figure out where we were supposed to meet. i don’t even know my own son’s phone numbers without my contact list. and then today, i traveled to cleveland for the fifth time to meet a facebook friend i have never met and am not even quite sure how i know. . .
but there IS some progress, although it may not be measured in numbers. i got my phone fixed and made arrangments for international calls when i am traveling. i got my visa from the indian government. and i have a reservation at the best western in incheon, south korea–a little bit of america stored on unfamiliar land. i have all my plane reservations and i got to see my younger son eastman whom i will not be able to see again until i return from my around the world visit all my facebook friends tour. sometimes our progress on goals is not measured on the numbers but on the foundation.
tomorrow morning i move from ohio to michigan. . . .
