Here's the Schmeer.

Looking to the future

I'm in a few places right now, primarily good, but under a bit of stress.

I'll be changing jobs, soon... one way or the other. I'm not confident that my position here will exist by the time my birthday rolls around, which is less than a month away. (at this writing, it's at 21 days, 17 hours, 49 minutes, 8 sec.)

Potential jobs in the future doing contract work, and perhaps some financial management for a local club. (at least until I find something more stable) . Just Called Suzy up, and she may have a gig lined up for me, and it seems that she's going to want some of my help for something. (I hope it's not financial, as I'm trying to gear up for some belt-tightening, in case of hungrier times ahead. I don't think I'll have to, but I'm happier safe than sorry.

Going out with Pix & Joel tonight for supper, picking up some info regarding the project she needs done, and handing it off to Kev. I may do it as a personal excersize too, but not until I find a steady, paying gig.

Looking into the future, I see good things. I see a better job (maybe a 9 to 5 gig, with more pay, and a more beneficial to humanity service) , a continually growing relationship with the girl that I love (I love her more every passing day... how is it possible? She's so wonderful... patient, kind, loving, thoughtful, smart, sexy, beautiful....) and hopefully more improvements in my life. A bigger place to live, thinknig again about getting a pal for Newton, who has been such a wonderful element in my life. Spiritually, I see growth ahead, too.

All and all a good bundle.

for those of you that don't know all the words.

Divide children into two sets of equal numbers.
Have one set join hands and form a circle, the others
in the center of the ring, in crouching position.

Sing a song of sixpence,
A pocket full of rye;
(Children in circle skip to the left while singing)

Four and twenty blackbirds
Baked in a pie!
(Children in circle skip to the right,
then stretch arms up toward center to form the pie.)

When the pie was opened,
The birds began to sing;
(Children in circle bring arms back down
to waist level, then children in center of ring
begin to 'chirp' and 'tweet')

Wasn't that a dainty dish
To set before the king?
(Children in circle skip to the left;
children in center flutter about like birds.)

The king was in his counting house,
Counting all the money;
(Children in circle walk backward
four steps then pretend to count money;
children in center keep fluttering like birds)

The queen was in the parlor,
Eating bread with honey
(Children in circle walk forward
four steps, kneel and pretend to eat;
children in center keep fluttering like birds)

The maid was in the garden,
Hanging out the clothes;
(Children in circle pretend to pick up clothes,
then turn outward and hang them up.)

When down came a blackbird
Who snapped off her nose!
(Children in center flutter to, and run around,
those in the circle, one bird to one child, each snapping
off a nose. Those in the circle kneel and the birds each
hold up one finger to represent the nose.)
