Dealing

November 15, 2008

Today is about dealing.

Dealing with the fact that I have to balance my translation workload vs. the urgent need for clean laundry, dishes, dinner, etc.

Dealing with the fact that I have earned a reputation as a “speed demon” when it comes to my translations, and worrying about how to keep it without compromising on quality.

Dealing with the departure of a dear friend. Last week, my beloved cat Sugar passed away in her sleep.

Go in peace, puss. Sorry about all the times I projected my own insecurities and made remarks about your “childbearing hips”. Particularly insensitive, considering that little operation we made you have. You will be missed.
