As Captain Jack Sparrow would say. And he’d be right. Deadlines unmet. Power adapters for laptops going out and having to be ordered. Alternators making funny noises and needing to be replaced. Leaks under sinks from cracks in disposal. Clogs under sinks from idiot builders not doing things right. And personal revelations, realizations, and plans for change in life and love and marriage. I need a vacation!
Yes, I know all of this is just life and it all just falls apart at the same time. Pieces get better. Whole parts get better. Inevitably though, there’s always something else that needs to be fixed. That’s where I am. That’s where I keep finding myself.
I guess I go through this stuff in phases. I’ll get myself where I need or want to be for a time and then something will happen or change and I’ll find myself struggling through it all, trying to find the way out, and learn in the process.
A BDSM friend of mine told me to go take 5 pictures of things that make me happy. I didn’t want to. Honestly, I just didn’t have the time. Multi-tasking is my middle name. But, I did it. These were my 5 things:
1. sitting outside
2. purple flowers that i bought yesterday
3. my work
4. my coffee station in my kitchen
5. my kitchen
I was severely irritated by this thing I was asked to do. But, it turned out to be a good thing. I took a moment to smile, to laugh, to breathe.
So, when things go to pot in your house or your life, what 5 things make you happy?
Sitting in my garden, watching the squirrels race across the fence always makes me smile. Then behind closed doors for an hour reading a great story will totally recharge me.
Today is my 35th wedding anniversary, and I so get where you are coming from, lol.
Hang in their Lissa.
3. going out for a drink
4. posting to my naughty tumblr account
5. playing in the backyard with my little family
My five? 1) Reading 2) My friends 3) Coffee 4) My minature schnauzer Greta Garbo and 5) My niece and nephew. That may be more than five, but they are at the top of the list. They keep me here and they keep me going. You are an amazing person and you are going to figure out what's best for Lissa. Oh and one more thing thanks for adopting me 🙂 Still doing a happy dance!
