This morning I made a decision, one I kind of made last night, that no matter who doesn’t like it, I am going to live my life. Not on the terms of others who think I am kind of nuts, nor of those who think I am well and am putting up a fake front. I know my body and what I can’t take when it comes to medication and I know that I don’t like my life spread around for all to take in. I am not a people person, of that I really know. Sure I am loving and caring, but to that industry I can not go. So I have decided that a hermit’s life if for me (at least 300 days of the year) so I can work the way I want, with no more controlling people or piers.
Well, since the museum closed I am actually getting things done I have been wanting to do. I did a bit of fall decorating in the house and my shop (I moved my alter out here so I can have some “quiet time” with my deities.) You could say I was doing spring cleaning in the fall. I have shredded 5 bags of papers and receipts what were way out of date as well as going through my files and clothes. I set a goal of getting these done by October so I can start working on my crafts and getting ready for the spring festivals.
I actually started counseling, though the way they conduct it is rather not what I would call patient/doctor privilege since they are passing me back and forth between two doctors. NOT HAPPY about that. My husband said they may be trying to get me “over” my mental problems so I can go back to work. I know it will never happen so I wonder why I am bothering with all this superficial BS. I have ordered my coffees that I sell at the Christmas fairs so if I do go (which I don’t think I will this year) I will have inventory to sell. Anyway, that is what is happening today. Hope you all had a great Mabon (At least those of you who celebrate that is). Til next time…
My hubster came back from Michigan last week and promptly ended up in the hospital for a couple of days. Still don’t know what caused the pain, but it is an off again on again thing that the doc. can’t seem to pin down. After he got home we had two days of “lovie dovie” and now it is “We need to pair down and clean things out!” Today, however, he went with his narcissistic friend for the day to N. Dakota. I can heave a sigh of relief so I can do what I want to do, not what he demands. This includes some meditation and relaxation. HAZZAH!!!!! Just not looking forward to his coming home with his friends ideas filling his head and personality.
Last Thurs. I ordered a day bed frame, a mattress and bedding. One would think that would be the order they would arrive …. NOT! I got the bedding Tues. the Mattress today and I am not going to get the bed (which I need by Friday) until next week since we don’t have Saturday deliveries. One would think it would come either on the same day or in the order of frame then mattress then bedding. WHAT WERE THEY THINKING!!!
I have just gotten off the phone from my hubster. He has been wanting to come home ever since his childhood friend asked him to come out. Now they are finally getting ready to come home … sort of.
My husband is fastidious when it comes to cleaning and getting things done right. On the first his friend is far worse about that. Neither like a dirty place nor a cluttered one. HOWEVER, his friend was suppose to finish the kitchen floor seven years ago, when hubby arrived it was still in the same state as he left it seven years ago. This guy is an engineer an instead of measuring twice and getting it done he is constantly measuring and changing things. They were suppose to leave yesterday and then this morning to come home. My husband said that the guy not only is not packed but he hasn’t showered after cleaning the house (again!) Now being clean is a good thing, but this is ridiculous. I have a feeling they won’t be leaving until tomorrow, if then … I wish him luck!
Just finished my last full day at the summer job and as I was leaving the parking lot I sang the celebration song. 67 people and 90% of that streaming through the museum during the last couple hours. By the time I got home I was wrung out and shaking. I still have to go back on Tues to help lock up, but there will only be the workers, no customers filing through.
Now on Weds. I start working on the baskets for 3 hours a day. It will be a relief to have my alone time again. My goal is 5 baskets by December. More if it works out.
At last! Tomorrow is my last full day then I am sudo free until next year. Weds. I am going into my studio and really crack down on my basket weaving. I actually downloaded a book that shows (and explains) what you need for the Nantucket baskets. I am planning to order a couple of forms and some bases for the baskets next month so I can actually work on them! For me I find the larger baskets easier to work with than the smaller ones.
I know that my husband is bringing his childhood friend back for a (gasp!) two week visit. We also have a bet going. I say he won’t last three days, my husband said a week, Winner gets their dinner (anything they want) made for them. If it is longer, then not only is the bet null and void, but we take him to dinner to celebrate.
Just wish tomorrow was over with. I really didn’t want to work there, I wanted to get the tubs moved to the trailer and start decorating for Autumn!
