Time once again to play that old game of “The Random Life of Brea”.
Basically, because I don’t have anything for Tuesday Theology today. So you get the randomness that is my brain. Lucky you!
*My neck is out of whack, has been for weeks, and I’m just that stubborn that I refuse to go to a chiropractor, thanks. I’ve had YoungerDaughter try to crack my back a couple of times, but she’s not really strong enough to do it. Eldest can, but she’s 75 miles away, so that’s out of my choices. There’s one woman at work who’s walked on my back a couple of times, but this is my neck. I don’t think I want her to step on that, even though she only weighs about 10 pounds. (Not really, of course, but you get the idea) **The heating pad and my Midol (because of the muscle relaxers in it) are my best friends right now**
*Speaking of YoungerDaughter, I received a phone call yesterday afternoon… with Younger asking me oh so sweetly, if there was anything I needed her to do today after school… oh, and by the way… could she have her BOYFRIEND come over to the house for a little while?? *blink, blink* o.O
Uhhhh… yeah? I s’pose, it’s alright… I mean, well… I did say that she could have friends come over to the house now that it doesn’t have to be so quiet all the time anymore… crap. Here we go.
And yeah, I do trust her… so I let her have him over, especially since he was there when I got home, and I know this kid’s not up to any funny business with my daughter, because she’d KILL him first. Still. GAH!
* Mother’s Day was pretty nice. My nephew, Will, brought me some lovely flowers and a card on Saturday, and YoungerDaughter gave me flowers, a card, and a pack of my favorite gum (it’s a “thing” with Younger, she’s obsessive about gum). Then, YoungerDaughter and OnlySon and I went to our local garden shop, and I got my yearly Mother’s Day tree, a flame maple, and a double-blossoming plum shrub/tree. I’ve been wanting one for some time, but they were always too expensive. Sunday, I got mine ON SALE! Woot! I would dearly love to turn my backyard into a grove of trees. I know it’s not really feasible, but I am adding some color and shade with what I’ve gotten so far. I’m excited to rake in the fall. Seriously.
* And, to be perfectly honest, I’m still having some “down” times. On the whole, I’ve been happier, more content, than I have been for a long time. I’ve even had people at work, whom I’ve known for years, tell me that it’s amazing how much “lighter” my personality seems in comparison to the last few years. One woman even told me that that out of all of the 3 years that she’s worked with me – she’s never seen me this “up” and happy. Wow. I didn’t realize just how much I’d changed. It’s…. a little sad – to realize that I was that depressive and depressing to be around. I thought I was covering pretty well… guess not. But, at least things are getting better.
The moments are still there, at odd times, when I stop, stare off into space, and fall into one of those moods… but they don’t weigh me down as much, or as often as they were. I am able to pick myself up easier, and move on quicker. This is good. Now, I just need the paperwork to be final, so I can finally put a end to that phase of my life. I really need to get out of Limbo, and get into the next part of my life. Picking up the pieces, making a new plan, and having some resolution. I need to be able to close this chapter, finally. Hopefully, it will happen soon. Time to get back in motion!
