I am back on the couch with a cuddly warm beastie at my feet. Sleep came so easy and natural to me for once last night. I usually spend a good hour tossing and turning before I am comfortable enough and another thirty minutes or so to still the hundreds of thoughts swirling in my brain. The sleep number bed rules my life. I woke up with practically no back pain at all today, it was so wonderful. Rosie had curled up in a ball behind my knees and Cajun felt that the dip between my ribs and hips made for a perfectly adequate bed. He eventually moved to the spot on the pillow above my head. Yea animals! <3! <3! <3!
Tropical Depression/storm Danny hit Cape Cod today. Rain, rain rain! So much of it! I was tempted to build an arc and fill it with two of every beer, the dog cat and I and sail away. Rosie and I went for a nice long walk in the woods and splashed around in *every* puddle that was around. I love having a dog. Cajun was waiting for us in the windowsill when we returned. After drying off and changing my clothes I warmed up drinking some of that spicy Mexican hot chocolate that I purchased while listening to Andrew Bird’s album Noble Beast. It was so delicious. I foresee Mexican Mochas in my future! I drove to Waquoit to finalize my PO Box, but alas, I got there too late. I lazed around the afternoon, alternating my time between reading and “watching” a Forensic Files marathon and apartment hunted on Craigslist. I found some good ones, hopefully one of them pans out. Granted it’s not as fantastic of a deal that living at Doro’s would have been, but that option is no longer open to me. My only concern is for those nights that I work to one in the morning is how I’m going to get home. Brighton isn’t car friendly in the parking scenario and all the trains cease operation at 12:30 am. Hopefully, I will figure it out fast. I also got offered the other job I applied for, so I will have two jobs and my financial worries can start to subside, thank … (insert deity here)!
Afterwards I turned inwards, breaking out the cards and asking the tough questions. I went with a deck I normally would have turned away from but it just spoke out to me in a way I could not explain. I pulled a few choice cards that made me laugh at their obviousness and the sheer serendipity of others. Abundance, Divine Timing and Focus were among the 10. It really opened my eyes and confirmed things that I was doing right and helped wash away some self doubt. It’s always nice when everything comes into clarity with such ease.
Tomorrow is Sunday and I have no idea what to do with myself. I’m tight on cash so I don’t foresee anything fantastic happening but maybe I can start on some craft project, scheme up a wild recipe or something productive. I did find a bunch of yoga dvds, a mat and some weights so I am definitely going to break into those tomorrow at some point. So far this has been wonderful. I miss some people, but the lack of communication/solitude has been a welcome change in an otherwise normally chaotic existence.
