I have been looking forward to this three-day weekend for some time now so I could be a homebody and putter around my house and do things that make me happy.
My to-do list consisted of….
Clean & work on my place.
Files & shredding.
Work on vision board.
Paint coffee table.
Wash & vacuum car.
Oh, and go out and buy a motorcycle!!
I didn’t even ask anyone what they were doing.
I just wanted some time to myself.
And it turns out that I really need it.
This weekend while doing these things I originally was going to be pondering….what do I want to do over the next year?
I was pretty sure I wasn’t going to make any moves work wise for the next year and was going to focus on moving forward on the yoga training front (by the way, on July 1st I was accepted into the year-long teacher training program that begins in September!).
However, I couldn’t shake the nagging thought of, but I need to make more money now to be able to do the things I want to be doing with and in my life, and I am not interested in getting a part-time job.
Stage left enter second surprise of the day going down on July 1st, I was offered a job by my former employer, which I accepted.
Needless to say, I have had a bit of an emotional and stressful week.
My current bosses are really sad to be losing me, one of my bosses had such thick emotions in his voice as he said, Man, you are really bumming me out, I’ll be down in a little while to talk.
I almost started crying on the spot as I said, I am so sorry, I wasn’t looking and I’ll do whatever I can to help you guys out during the transition.
I held it together and didn’t cry until I drove home.
I hate disappointing people, I really hate blind siding people, and I totally wrecked their we finally have a good thing going on here again thanks to Lisa.
So anyway, this weekend couldn’t have come any sooner for me and now I have even more reason to want to be a homebody and just take care of me and my stuff.
My dance card just got pretty damn full in the weeks and months to come, so I want a detach from everything and do what makes me happy and feel good weekend.
So today I bought a couple of things to brighten up my place a little more.
I am kinda from the school of I do it myself, I do it myself so I trekked across town to buy and drive home a big ass mirror in my tiny car hoping that I would not get pulled over by the cops.
I passed two on my I’ll take every back street between here and there and not go over 35 miles an hour even if it takes me an hour to get home route!!
No one pulled me over. In fact, they didn’t even give me a second glance.
And the mirror was SO worth it because it only cost $30! And the art work only cost $7 each.
So here are a couple of photos for your viewing pleasure and with any luck Sunday night I’ll be able to share many rooms completed taa daas!!!
So, as I recoup from my long week and day, and putter around my house, I wish all of you a safe and happy 4th of July doing whatever makes YOU happy!!
