Yeah, it's been a while. Once again, I forgot to see where I left off before I started this so I apologize if I repeat myself. Did I tell you I got hit by lightning? Again? So I have a lap top now. And all of my old pictures and important legal documents are all on an external hard drive now. Thankfully I have a kid who knows how to put them there. Sadly, I have no idea how to access them if I need them.
Remember back when my ceiling caved in during Hurricane Sandy? We are in the midst of some good hard rains now and when I got home from work, I soon recognized that sickening drip...........drip, drip.....drip..dripdrip and my heart sunk. Because I have the best landlord and I hate giving him bad news. Of course the alternative is to own this house and have to deal with this myself. I choose plan A.
You know, apart from having to learn a whole new keying system with this laptop (I hate it, quite frankly), I am pretty darn happy these days. I think I may finally have figured out the secret to being alone and happy. I think you actually have to be happy while alone. Simple really. But not so easy.
There is a sense of peace once that sweeps over you. Once you realize, hey, I've got my shit together and I am in the driver's seat of my life. Both of my jobs are going great and I'm learning a whole new creative side to my personality and abilities I never knew I had. And everything feels right. Because I think I may have found what my right-sized life is. It's simple. It's uncomplicated. And I finally get to put myself first. (Plus I occasionally sneak out of town and no one has a clue where I am. And that is pretty damn cool.)
