Well, after feeling lonely all week and trying to make plans on the weekend, I decided to shift gears and let this just be a quiet weekend. Nova is much better and there is snow is the forecast, and I have a bunch of projects. I want to make truffles this weekend and I have a custom pillow project. Custom as in uber-goth. 🙂 I will try to post pics.
And I don’t know what is all going on, but there’s some bad mojo going on. My friend Theresa would say it’s the Mercury retrograde thing, but two of my friends had their houses separately broken into and electronics gear stolen. One of my friends fainted at work and was taken to the hospital in an ambulance (she’s fine now) and another friend posted that she was having medical issues and to pray for her. Tried calling her, but no answer, so we’ll see if I find out what that was about. And then I got a Christmas card where I found out the mother of my best friend from high school died. She had cancer and apparently died in November. The friend from high school had already died several years ago, so hopefully mother and daughter are having a reunion.
I was thinking it must be so hard for the dad. His wife and his only child have since passed over. I wonder what he’s going to do now. In absence of having any idea, I think I would probably go to Florida and live in one of those retirement communities. Start over and enjoy the sunshine. Play some golf and feel the grass under my feet.
So I’m kind of feeling like my household is a calm island. I had sort of an emotional freakout on Wednesday, where I was just feeling sad and disconnected. I still need to get together with friends, but now I know it will happen, I just need to be patient. And my family life is pretty good. Last night as I was taking Rowan to bed, she semi-tripped and let out a loud burp. “Mom, I burp-barfed!” she said and we both just cracked up. She’s so funny, I love that about her. And work–well, that’s another post, but it’s starting to fall into place. Now I just need to start getting stuff done in the home sphere.
