I have a lot of posts in my head, and I’ve been writing a lot, but I can’t seem to find one thing to say today, so it will be a randomness day.
I have cramps. Why, oh, why, do some women get cramps and others don’t? Mine have always been so bad that my Mother used to let me stay home from school, and THAT says something. We had to be producing copious amounts of nasty emissions from some orifice in order to ever stay home from school. (Well, I guess I qualified – eww.) And cramps keep me from sleeping, so I’m sleepy.
It is gorgeous here today – almost 60 degrees. That’s quite a shift from our -9 at the beginning of the week. Did you know that the largest temperature shift in a 24-hour period happened on January 15, 1972 in Loma, Montana, when the temperature went from -54 to 49 degrees? I love Montana. It’s so quirky and so much itself. And doesn’t it look like a profile of a face on its Western border? I just want to paint a little smile there.
Isn’t it amazing how you can take an instant dislike to someone simply because they remind you of someone else? Which is wrong and sucky, because I like everyone until they give me reason not to. Unfortunately, this person reminds me of someone who gave me reason not to. For obvious reasons, a photo will not follow.
It has been nice being able to hang out with my ex-dogs and cats this week while housesitting but I’ll be happy to get back to the Cottage. Of course, in the proper spirit of visualization and manifestation, I am decorating my new house, which is fun – and it’s beautiful. Depending on the job situation, maybe I’ll even get a dog/cat.
The concept of finding oneself…does that imply that you’ve been hiding from yourself? Or that you’ve buried your true self beneath layers of silk and garbage? I don’t think it’s possible to find yourself. You ARE yourself, in all your regal confusion and bullshit. You may discover that you change or that elements of yourself that were hidden are brought to the forefront by people, places or circumstances. I know the first time I sat on the beach at Cane Garden Bay on Tortola, I felt like I had found myself. I recognized a woman whom I hadn’t seen in 20 years, and I realized that I loved her, and that I had missed her. Hmmm…maybe I was lost…maybe I DID find myself. Thinking with your keyboard can be interesting.
Today is Caesarean Section Day. I don’t know why it should be TODAY, but I don’t make the rules, I just report ‘em.
I heard the “twee-woo” bird this morning. It’s a little early for him, but he is and always has been, a harbinger of spring. It made me smile.
Kelsea had her annual check-up today. She’s been consistently in the 25th percentile on the growth charts since she was born. Looks like she’s going to be a fairly small person. But for a fairly small person, she had a blockage in her ear that, after 30 minutes of ear-colonic, finally emerged and was so large that people came from other exam rooms to look at it. We should have named it and put it in a sideshow. Hopefully, her ear will now start feeling better without my having to pay $200 for an antibiotic. (Damn and blast the beginning of the year before the deductible is met.)
New things are on the horizon tomorrow, and hopefully, a more meaningful post.
