Lulu says I need to seek medical attention. She’s says I have been manic this week. She told me to never work at that other place again! Stay downtown mom where the River calms you. And the smell of urine, well it is delightful. And truthfully I’ve been kind of a mess. But I am better! Really I am. I promise!! I’ve got this all figured out. Let go and let God. Seriously folks. The secret to peace of mind.
After we got home earlier today, I tried on my new clothes and did laundry. I love doing laundry! I didn’t always but now washing clothes along with making the bed are two welcome consistencies in my otherwise Topsy-turvy life. And with laundry, there is a sense of accomplishment even if brief. I guess the same could be said for all housework.
While the wash was going, I decided to tackle my office. First up the bookshelf aka clutter central aka dumping ground for any type of paper that can be shoved in. I took everything off the shelves and dusted them real good. I meticulously put back the photos albums and other assorted books that I plan to keep. I also have a pile of books that I no longer want that will go to Half Priced Books eventually. Hey another reason to leave the house one upcoming weekend.
I am left with an over-sized chair full of photos, cards, etc… and I am not going to put that back. I am going to organize and/or toss. But I got tired and I quit. For now. Heaven help me this could take me the entire month of August. I plan to do more tomorrow and even during the week. I need to make hay while the sun shines. The days are still long; I will have time after work. Victory will be mine.
Any Who. As I sorted through the stuff, I found some folders that Pony used when he was in college. Inside I found a paper he had written about his best friend as a response to a prompt. As I read it, I cried. Dayum. Feels good to know our kid has someone besides me, his dad and his sister in his corner. Of course Wise is numero uno who comes first but then he has Brando. Still best friends for the last 14 years. Everyone should be so lucky to have a Brando. The teacher made comments and had some red marks but then added your friend seems like a pretty cool guy. Yep, you’d be correct. Brando who is now a PhD candidate. When the hell did that happen?!?!? Very cool indeed.
As always, more to come.
