Colorado Visiting

Overall today was a good day. I'm still a bit out of sorts, but I'm mentally moving on a bit.
Today I was doing training for a long-time customer, who I really enjoy working with. They are some of the people that I miss the most with not being in service any more. I know a lot of them miss me as well, since I was the one who took care of the majority of their problems. They're good people and I tried to take care of them. Apparently I did a good job of it.
There were several people in my class who I'd been working with for almost 7 years now, so it was great to see some of them again and finally put faces to names and voices for others. There were also several new people. It's always a challenge when you're dealing with people with such a wide range of knowledge. I'm pretty sure though that everyone had at least one ah-hah! moment today. That's all I ask, is that out of the entire day everyone comes away with something.
I still say if I'd had to go almost anywhere else, I would have moved the training this week.
Gak seems to be doing better today than earlier in the week. He said today was the first day that he felt almost normal again. This is good. Forward is a good direction, we just need to figure out what angle forward is on. We really want a family and eventually we'll get there. At least we know that everything works on both our parts, it's just timing and patience we need now.
On a slightly different tangent, some people are much more helpful than others. I can accept that "things happen for a reason". Yes, there is a reason, genetic flaws, illness, stress all kinds of tangible reasons. Mind you, I do believe in God. But my God is not a micro-manager. He/She doesn't do things to "teach us" or "correct us" or any of that other bull shit. So, I can accept when someone tells me "it happened for a reason" because it's true, see Newton's Law, but when someone says something along the lines of "don't think of it as your loss, but God's gain" I have to try hard not to puke.
Ok, enough of that rant.
Tomorrow I head home. I could have gone out with my camera earlier today, but I didn't. I went back to the hotel after I was done at the office and took a little nap before dinner. I forgot to take my camera with me to dinner or I'd have gone driving around a bit after dinner. I'm looking forward to heading home. I've got a 3-day weekend. I'm not really looking forward to the doctor's appointment Tuesday, but Gak has off and is going with me. (Have I told you how much I love this man and how much I appreciate what he does for me?)
Well, I've got some emails to catch up on and some schedules to wrangle into place. Besides, I'm rambling in completely unconnected ways and should probably shut up now.
Peace to all and may you find direction in your life.

Yes, someone said that. Someone who doesn't have the address to this blog so I feel safe posting about it....
