Whose life is this anyway?

Well, I survived the hike.  Actually, I thoroughly enjoyed it.  That was the greatest time of my day - my seven hour day!  I can hardly sit up.  I may take a shower and just go to bed.  I'm sure I won't be able to sleep but I do need to chill.  I've been gone since 8:30 this morning.

Suddenly, my part-time job has taken a full-time swing!  Some of the work is temporary.  But much of it is ongoing.  And I got another new daily client today.  Plus a once-in-a-while client wants me two days a week ongoing.  This is insane.  And I still say, keep it coming!  I'm laughing like a giddy child.  I feel like I've hit the lottery.  The work is so rewarding - on many levels.

I imagine a month of being on my feet and in my car for seven or eight hours a day might wear on me.  But today, I don't even care that my legs are throbbing.  I know I'm building strength.  This is the most important time for me to be taking care of myself.  So I'm eating well, drinking lots of water and getting as much rest as my body will allow.

I feel as though something has clicked.  As if all parts of me are aligned and working together - mind, body and spirit.  I couldn't be more grateful or more humbled as I am in this moment.

I love hearing you so happy.  Just reading this entry made me SMILE!  There's nothing like that feeling that everything has somehow slipped into place.  I hope it continues for you for a good long time!

awwww....so nice to read!!  Isn't that just the best moment....when you feel that last click slide into place.  And your mind becomes opened, and you can think and feel so clearly.  It's a wonderful place to be. :)

I am very happy that things are going so well for you. *hugs and X's

You sound thrilled and happy!  I'm thrilled that you're happy :o)   Let the work flow and have fun with it.  Keep drinking lots of water because I'm sure the weather is brutal there.  It's warming up here on the East coast, so it must be damn warm on the West coast.  Rock on, Freee!  ~  Kate xo

Wow...you're working like a mad-woman!  But what great shape you'll be in!  And just count that money rolling in!  LOL  Plus, you have a birthday coming up this month!  No, I haven't forgotten.  <grin>  

I'm so happy to hear that YOU'RE  so happy.  I've missed you the last few weeks, but trust me...I TOTALLY UNDERSTAND how it is to be busy and tired.  Hence the reason I'm just now getting caught up on your journal.  Left lots of comments for you though.  =)  

Love you, Trishy!

What a wonderful journal you have!  I went all the way back to it's creation and started with your early entries.  I had to write to you about your Hunny.  First of all, I love the name.  It so suits her!  I totally understand all your feelings and emotions regarding her.  I have a Sheltie named Lucy, and she is the love of my life.  She and I are soul mates/kindred spirits.  The love this little fur kid gives me is so fullfilling.  I love this quote, "No one can fully understand the meaning of love unless she is owned by a dog."  Anyway, I really enjoy all your entries and your writing style.  
Take care.
Susan

I love the click feeling when everything seems to be snapped in place and running right. Sorry I haven't been around, but you know I'm always reading. School has been kicking my butt. I had to pull an all-nighter last night just so I could get some stuff done for class today. But, now, it's zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz ;-) ---Robbie

Ah yes! That's a great feeling indeed! YAY for You Freee!!! Life's looking up! :-)

Just catching up today Freee.  It's wonderful to see you so happy and prosperous!  Was a little intimidated by all that spider activity too, but we trust your "safe" instincts!  Let me hear if I heard this part correctly ... "This is insane.  And I still say, keep it coming!"  We are thinking you are headed for a state of inner/outer Nirvana.  You go girl!  Keep that water filled though!
