Horror-scope for today (and as always, right on the money!):
Enough is enough. Your head is full of words and ideas. Your ears keep receiving data long after you can process it. What you need is a short break from human noise and activity. Even the people you love could disappear for a while before you missed them. If you can’t get everyone to leave you alone, go to a private place and shut the door or get out for a walk. Everyone will benefit from a few minutes of quiet time, and a change of scenery might be exactly what you need. Self-care is a completely acceptable excuse.
Been a busy couple days and I don’t forsee it getting any less busy in the next few weeks. New Job, trying to train someone on the 7000000 nuances of what I do at the old job (an impossible task), dealing with my mom and her transition into a nursing home (quite possibly for good) and about 100 other things I won’t go into here.
So, instead of pissing and moaning (and oh believe me, I’d sooo get into that), I am going to write down some of what I am grateful for to remind myself that there are many, many good things in my life now.
(By *NO* means a complete list – just a few off the top of my head)
1. A loving and dutiful husband
2. My kitty cats and the Maxell head who give me purrs, comfort and songs when most needed.
3. A supportive family network – not the least of which are my two best Cousins of Cool, Mary and Dani, my own GOC, Aunt Connie, the GOL herself (madame Turbana) and my aunt Geri (who said something to me that touched my heart). Thanks, guys. I mean it.
4. Twinnie for comforting words and an understanding shoulder
I am also thankful for convertible therapy, lots of books on healing, my coming seminar with Carolyn Myss and Judith Orloff. Dunkin Donuts coffee, the ability to IM at will until June 30 and my new tennis shoes.
Okay, off to visit the mother. Happy Sunday.
