February 2009: Inbrief


“No, this is how it works

You peer inside yourself

You take the things you like and try to love the things you took

And then you take that love you made

And stick it into some…

Someone else’s heart, pumping someone else’s blood

And walking arm in arm

You hope it don’t get harmed

But even if it does

You just do it all again…”


From the song, “On the Radio,” by Regina Spektor




It was a weird month worthy of the Friday the thirteenth it possessed. I had an anaphylactic reaction to my allergy shot, there was a small fire at work, my computer got a nasty virus, and my kids suddenly started doing the normal teenagery stuff they’d never done before. Each and every weird event actually made the situation better in the long run, but the short run was a little more surreal than I like my life to be. At least things aren’t boring.
