My goal has been to find something we have and use that.
Amazing how resourceful I have been about this.
I am making do.
Or doing without. Lots of things on a list to get. But I am trying to see if I can do without. So far, so good.
And, on other fronts, I am wearing things out…
They put Jay out to pasture (which should have happened ages ago) and now I am worried that your time is going to be next.
When, when are we going to meet? Stay there. I will figure out how to get there soon.
Or call and let’s have lunch soon.
Help! How do you celebrate success?
From the first day, I insisted no boxes went into the living room or dining room and it kept these spaces open and clutter free. Just the furniture. That has been a life saver to have these beautiful spaces clutter free and wonderful while the rest of the house works its way into order. Right now, after 7 weeks, it is all comfy and usable. Still to finish are the master and office but otherwise, its is relatively done.
It still astounds me that I get to live in my dream.
This is such a special place. I have been able to entertain here more in 6 weeks than I did in the last place for 6 years. Many people for a variety of occasions. Especially a party for my daughter – a send off.
So, it is home. It feels like home. Today is the first day I really have had to just enjoy it. And I am enjoying it very much. Cleaning periodically, but the kitchen is pure heaven and I love to cook and prepare food there. Yummy meals today and a juice! So easy to clean and prep everything!
I love my new house. I enjoy my new house. I enjoy making it a home and I will be thrilled to keep evolving it that way. It is home to me though and I love it.
Now, if winter could end, life would be even better.
I am learning to be vulnerable
to say what I think
to get my voice out
to set boundaries
to say no
to risk losing friends and relationships
in order to be right with me
not a jerk
not a pushover
Imagine having a dream for 20 years and then getting to live it. It may be frustrating to wait for so long, but the belief that you can have it can manifest.
I believe it. I live it over and over again.
Happy. I believe.
Hey, there is nothing like having her here everyday in my life. That was so amazing to spend the 2 months together. Now, she is on the other side of the world and thanks to some great apps and Skype we are able to stay connected.
Just made her out 12-15 cards that she can open during periods while away. Hopefully they will reach her soon.
My valentine’s day was filled with thoughtful things from her – left for me so that I can feel her love. I sent her off with the same.
Love my kid! Love my kid. It really doesn’t get any better. OH KEEP HER SAFE> OH KEEP HER SAFE.
I will keep stepping up
I hereby make a commitment to make a Monday call each week to check in on how things are going. WIth follow-up by Friday.
In this way – my big dream number one will keep happening.
Then, for dream BIG number 2, I am going to do this thing – and max out the opportunity with a of t
I love to make things harder and more challenging than they need to be. I think I am always trying to prove I am capable of superhuman powers.
Well – not this year. I am taking a year off of superhuman powers and into a life of ease.
On Friday someone told me I could lighten up in my work. Well – how about light and easy!
I can do light and easy.
I will lighten up. I will make this easier.
I will have more fun. I will play with work more.
Sometimes you need a clean slate.
I’d like to do that here, as a way to memorize my six plus years here.
i have worked on many things and made many movements toward the good steps.
i have taken big leaps and made great strides in moving my dial.
right now I am afraid I took on too much.
we will see! but I need to rise to what I just did!
and now using it.
so….to review…in order to get my score higher, I needed credit and even though I always paid all my bills on time with money I had.
now, I am stuck with bills to pay…using credit.
I hate it, I hate it.
Of course, my score no doubt is in the stratosphere.
Really reading into these.
Have a few months and probably a couple of years to tackle it.
All good. Watching the hillside in the cold and what to expect during all seasons. Want to fix what is wrong.
Last night, middle of the night, she found a mouse in the basement and put a cover over it. Today, she wanted me to handle it. With the flu under a total attack of my body, I instructed her on how to manage it.
I told her she had just graduated in the adult world to handling a very unpleasant experience – but a requirement for adulthood.
isolation this winter
february and March – think time
and relaxing. nice. home.
This is sound advice.
I would add…or get rid of it!
I drank a lot of water and tea
I dressed appropriately.
I wore gloves.
I put moisturizer on my hands
I wore good boots
I took care of my self and didn’t go crazy or feel guilty for not going in bad weather.
I didn’t let the holiday traffic stress me out
I just enjoyed the process….so far.
Organized is pretty funny.
there is a group in my new neighborhood that sings.
i am going to join in January.
I am going to sing, dammit.
