I have a magnificent lack of things to write about. I open my little blogger window and my mind goes - blank (if you've seen You've Got Mail, please imagine Kathleen Kelly saying this, it's so much better).

Sunday I found out that a friend of mine was pregnant. It's an extremely inopportune time, but I was happy for her. Monday I found out she miscarried and is taking it really hard. I never know what to say when people are hurting. Some people always know, but I have nothing.

Monday Robin and I went to Barne's & Noble and read. People complain about the large, boxy Barnes & Noble stores...but I think they feel like home. Maybe it's because they remind me of the library...with nicer books and more expensive coffee.

Tuesday evening I hung out with one my Jr. Highers. We've developed a tradition of swinging at the park. It was two degrees outside last night. We got a lot of stares from the people meeting at the senior center.

I am totally with you on Barnes and Noble - I love that store!!!!

And I never know what the right words are to say to someone who has lost something important. Where and how do you learn those kinds of things?

I don't know. Just by living I suppose, but it never seems to get easier.

Yeah, most of the time I want to say something to someone, but I don't know what. This can be more of a general problem, though, but it definitely encompasses sad experiences.
