Here’s my weekend:
* It freaking snowed on saturday – spent all day in a chilly gym learning about nutrition. The guy who was the presenter suddenly got a lot more interesting when he took off his shirt and walked around in his tshirt and jeans.
Here’s the puzzling thing about this event: there were about 40 people or more there – most of them well into the Paleo/Crossfit lifestyle. Why were they there? I’ve read two books about it and read a lot of stuff on various websites and hell, even this outta shape chick could tell you the stuff they did.
Yet everyone seemed very interested in every bloody damn detail about polyunsaturated fats, fish oil (Omega 3 vs Omega 6), insulin resistance and more. Me? I was with them for about 3 hours even though the room is FREEEZING and the chairs are uncomfortable. But it went on and on and on and they hadn’t even gotten to how you integrate this whole Paleo thing into your life.
I was freezing, tired of listening to them speak (even though he was pleasant to look at) and just wanted to go home. So, I did. There was still an hour or more to go but I didn’t care. (It’s true – you won’t find me skipping my ass out of a woo-class early! But this was nutrition, yo! I just couldn’t take any more.) But I suppose I learned some things and rededicated myself back to my eating plan. I will admit that I stopped and got a pumpkin spice latte on the way home, though. Don’t tell anyone, okay?
Sunday: watched like 4 hours of The Good Wife (season 2) and then went to visit my sweet Aunt Janet along with Cousin O’Love. I haven’t seen her in like forever and it was her 80th birthday so we thought a visit was in order.
I love going to see her and when I leave I always wonder why I don’t go more often. I think I’m going to have to make a point to go. She’s just like 40 minutes away. I always leave there feeling happy (like I do with Aunt Nellie) and she’s just as rollicking funny at 80 as she ever was. I hope I’m like that at her age although you could make the case that I’m not like that now at 51 so what hope do I have for 80, amirite?
Did NOT get a PSL on the way home because that’s just too much, you know? Did laundry, did a reading, uploaded my podcast and totally forgot Dexter was on. That’s just sad.
Duty comes home either Thursday or Saturday. Good thing. There’s lots of chores that no one is doing! :)
I’m officially offering mediumship sessions on Practically Intuitive now – it’s sort of in conjunction with my fellow intuitive Anna who doesn’t do them but has a big audience for them. We’re doing a revenue sharing thing where I’ll be the official medium of Psychic But Sane and she’ll refer people to me.
I’m excited about it for a lot of reasons but it came about so organically that I know it’s the Universe leading me in a different direction that will help get me where I want to go. I’ve done several official mediumship readings and I love them. It brings so much comfort to the person who has lost a loved one.
Another intuitive who looked at my site says that I clearly come across as a teacher but need to also make sure my healing skills and abilities are out there for people to see as well. She said I am as good a healer as I am a teacher. I think this is one way to help bring that side more into the light.
I’m excited about a week off (in two weeks) and have plans to do a lot during it. Laugh if you will and remind me of this as I spend the week doing nothing and whining about it.
I know, right? So predictable am I.
