What's on your mind?

Deciding on one blog post wasn't possible today. It's not writers' block, but the opposite; there's too much going on.

The new laws have a direct effect on me and my job. Our contract is still being reviewed; I've got one, I just hope all is well so I can sign it and have a job next fall.

Wisconsin's politics have moved across the nearby Great Lake to the great state of Michigan. Hang in there, workers!

There's room and plenty of fodder for another depression post. My recovery goes on, slowly: a marathon, not a sprint. Whether it's an informational or personal post, I hope that by sharing I can do some good. Depression is widespread. Because it's a mental illness, people don't talk about it. I'm taking a deep breath and talking.

La Petite continues her job search. In this economy, I'm happy that she's looking. It would be easy to give up, but she hasn't.

Amigo is competing in forensics. He hasn't told us much about it; I think he'll be great.

My garden is still snow-covered. The snow is melting! Eventually I'll see mud, then it'll dry a bit and I'll have soil! Real soil-slash-dirt and I can go out and get my hands dirty prepping for planting.

We just replaced our main family computer- not by choice. The previous desktop gave up. Thanks to the local Noon Lions' Club, we were able to make it accessible for Amigo immediately. They donated the money for his adaptive software. Their generosity makes our lives so much easier, so often. So if you're looking for a cause, look no farther than the local Lions.

So, readers, that's a taste of what's on my mind. What's on yours?

Those Lions, they're such good people.

Indeed they are. They have assisted Amigo in many ways for many years.The best part is that they are very happy to do it, it's part of their mission. A terrific resource for a blind child.
