10. March, 2005 - in between

Woke up this morning, and when I looked outside I saw that we’d gotten some of the predicted snow for the day. And as the sky lightens, I can see that big, fat, fluffy flakes are still drifting down. The temperature is such that they collapse and turn to slush when they hit the ground though, so this snowfall probably won’t stick for long.

I’m not sure how I feel about that. It’s too early in the year for it to really be spring and for things to start greening up. I don’t especially want more snow, but it makes the outside world look a heck of a lot prettier than the gray and brown we have until everything greens up. So weather-wise, we Minnesotans are stuck in an in-between place.

It’s that way with baseball, too. Spring training is going on, and I’ve been thinking about baseball for a few weeks, but it’s still almost two months before the Saints start to play. Heck, it’s still at least a month before we’ll be able to get an idea of what the roster will look like for this year.

As I’ve mentioned before, I’m somewhat in between jobs, as well. I’m wrapping up some projects and have bits and pieces coming in, but haven’t found a job that’s going to carry the company through the summer yet. Yes, there are some prospects, but as time passes and I don’t hear back on them, I find myself wondering if anything is going to materialize.

Everything at my life right now seems to be in this awkward state of “in-between” and I’m tired of it. I know there are many who would say this is a time of great opportunity for me or some other similarly gung-ho philosophy, but at this point, I’d rather just find a comfortable rut to settle into for a while.
