Hey Hey, My My

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.)


  1. Sounds like things are really coming together. May you stay dry.

  2. Oh god, to be able to sneak away without anyone knowing!

    I am so glad that you are feeling more at peace with everything, it was hard-earned, I am sure!
