Oops. Apparently, my weekend lack of posts traveled into the new week. The week before Christmas and rather than wait for the cash, I put most of Christmas on credit. Which sucks but you do what you have to do in the big world of adults. I just get tired of waiting until the 24th to do all my shopping. I did get all the things I wanted though and that makes me happy. I love giving gifts. I think it’s one of my love languages.
So there is holiday party my roomie is throwing at one of her centers for the disabled. I got put in charge of the music, and so I have my playlist all ready with Holiday Cheer and classic fun. I couldn’t put my usuals cause there were some language issues, so it’s just the classic boogie tunes. Here is the link in case you wanted to view it.
I have been such a little whiny whinester lately. I just reread everything and it’s like waa waa waa. Sure there are some difficulties lately and that has led to stress but ultimately life is what happens when you are waiting for the bigger stuff to happen and I need to live that life of in between. The grateful life of someone who has amazing friends and a tribe, who has a cherished family who are all healthy and thriving and a business that is growing. That’s big stuff and sometimes you have to step back and say THANK YOU for those things Universe/Creater/Spirit in the Sky.
Self-care is the first step in getting my groove back and I have been deep in the misery of weight gain and self-indulgence lately. DEEP. Spike and I had a mental conversation this morning and it went like this:
Spike: I’ve been meaning to tell you your ass is getting big
Me: Big. Now, Spike, that is kind of rude to say.
Spike: Well I didn’t say it was bad but you just don’t feel like you are comfortable in your skin anymore.
Me: Point taken.
Spike: I just want the best for you and when you are not comfortable ain’t no one comfortable. So get out and move some more and get body happy again.
Me: You are so smart.
Listening to an audio book and working on Audits. My head hurts. This should be some song of mopiness.
Oh my head hurts like a banging
let the hurt ring, ring
the lights are low and it throbs
let the pain bring, bring
Fuck it. I’m going to get some aspirin.
It’s been one of those Mondays when some things went really well (Schrodinger’s Mailbox) and it’s still not enough. Just when I think we are making traction other bills come in and snatch it. Sometimes it is an uphill battle and some days it’s awesome running our own company.
Moni and Wick moved to Smithville and we have spent the last few weekends off and on over the last few months helping getting their home together. We helped build a deck or two, moved their things into storage and home. And whatever else they needed. This weekend we actually got to do our normal fun things we went into Bastrop for the Wine swirl and then did the Wine and Paint. We had so much fun! We even went exploring around today. I feel better knowing Moni is back in town (or close enough to it).
Heading to Smithville today to see Wick and Moni for the weekend. To that end, I got up at 8 and have been nailing email ever since then. Taking care of bidness and making sure everything that needs to be done is done.
