Hard Worker

Filed under: General — Laura Moncur @ 1:54 pm

This is one of those times when I don’t have anything to write. I don’t want to write and I feel crappy about it. Ever since Grandpa died, I haven’t wanted to write and all the weblogs have gone dark. I know he wouldn’t have wanted that. He was the kind of man who prized work above everything.

Hard worker.

I don’t think you could give me a better compliment than that and it’s all because of how I was raised: by my mom, my dad and my grandparents.

I haven’t been much of a hard worker lately. I think I’ve been wallowing in it a little. I’ve been doing my best to achieve one good thing a day. Do laundry. Change the sheets. Empty the suitcases. Anything to mark it down as an achievement. Honestly, I feel like I can’t do anything more.

Stacey and I had a talk today and she said that being forced back to work actually helped her, so here I am, forcing myself back to work. A good day is six units, so I’m doing six units today.

This is number one.



  1. I read this interesting article that is all about hard work… http://sethgodin.typepad.com/seths_blog/2007/09/labor-day.html How do you define hard work?

  2. oh sweetie, you just made me cry at work. Sometimes it is just stepping one foot in front of the other for awhile. I wish you a comforting dream.
