Blurry duckies from the other day.
Feeling very safe around here again. The fear-based thinking really did lift. The apartment manager changed the code on the garage door lock and posted reminders about safety precautions when coming and going. My clients were completely understanding about the keys - and empathized with my situation.
I spent most of the weekend watching the entire first season of SURVIVOR. And I'm completely DVD'd-out! My eyes are crossing. Everything is blurry. I hardly got any real sleep last night. My dreams are wild. Every time I close my eyes, I find myself stranded with 16 other castaways off the coast of Borneo. An endless mission for tapioca. The only outside communication is via coconut-phone. The rats are overcooked and chickens refuse to lay eggs. The positive side is, I've had a mud bath every day, I've lost 12 pounds of fat and gained 6 pounds of muscle. But I look like a waif on TV. My luxury item is my journal but I had to sacrifice it in our quest for fire. A member of the camera crew slipped me a tic-tac. I shared it with my tribemates. ... Can hardly wait for season two to be released!
I thoroughly cleaned out my closet this weekend too. I've thrown a bunch of stuff away. And I have a huge box of clothes ready to donate to shelters. I also have some other things to clear out but I can't decide if it's worth it to have a yard sale - or just donate it all. We'll see. But it feels so much better when I open my closet door now. I actually know where things are. Bonus: I also found a huge box of missing pictures - from my entire life - in the far corner. I was looking for them a few months ago. I've moved so much, I thought I'd lost them along the way. I still haven't gone through them all. But at least I know where they are now.
Big love-shout to Vivian whose birthday is today. Since it's a national holiday already, she's going to celebrate her personal holiday tomorrow. Happy Birthday Viv. We love ya!
I'm headed out to help a friend unpack from a move. She's coming out of a relationship. A bit of devastation. But welcoming new energy. She's been packing and working non-stop for two weeks. Hopefully we'll get her all set up so she can relax and concentrate on work and life.
I hope to find time to respond to comments later. Thank you all for your insight and kind words. I'm blessed to be part of the AOL-J community.
