It’s a failure to communicate…

So it’s 5:45 am and I’m trying to explain weekends to dogs…

Friday thoughts…

Never thought I’d wish for a Monday…

Five months… and change…

Five months ago everything in my life started changing, and I didn’t even know it.

I started changing.

Five months ago I sent a resume to a company in Fort Myers that I’d never heard of. Four and a half months ago I came down to Punta Gorda for the first time. Continue reading

But I don’t want to grow up!!!

So there’s something I’ve had to do with this move that’s been a fairly breathtaking thing for me. 

And yes, for those of you playing along at home… I have moved… further south… with a lovely ocean view and all that entails. In fact I’ve got a new fabulous gig, in a new wonderful little town, with new… well… new pretty much everything! And no worries… it’s all good! Sometimes you just have to push the reset button and see what happens. 

KABOOM!

Anyway, together with all of the excitement is the bad part… because there’s always a bit of negative in all positives. For me that has been the fact that everything about this move is in my name… the lease, the electric, the water, the internet, the renters insurance… everything… and I’m the one that had to make all of it happen. I had to find the house, qualify for it, set up all of the services I need for it, and next up is coordinating the move into it. And I realized as I’ve worked my way through all of this that this is only the second time in my life that I’ve had to adult at this level. 

Seriously. Only the second time. And I am 53.

And that knowledge, honestly, is very intimidating. And crazy-making. And it’s making me very retrospective about all of my choices in life. Mainly the one where I have been kidding myself for years that I’m independent. 

Yeah right. Um hmm. #notsomuch 

Oh I’m sure I’ll be writing a lot more about all of this but suffice to say it’s a lot to process. A lot. But I’m muddling through. Slowly but surely. Like molasses in Massachusetts in January.

But in the meantime keep my immature butt in your thoughts. And picture me adulting. You’re welcome. Guess I should start charging for the laughs… 

hahahahaha!

Temporarily closed for repairs…

So yeah… lots of stuff going on kids… ALL. OF. THE. STUFF. Head is spinning from all of the changes that are happening really damned fast and if you follow me on Facebook then you already know the scoop. However, until I get some security updates done on this bloggity blog thing I won’t be talking about ALL. OF. THE. STUFF. on here for a while.

Remember the social and cyber stalking I dealt with a long time ago? Yeah… that’s a problem… again…

Ugh.

Making choices…

So yesterday I said something that was so true and yet so surprising to write… I think my quote was “… I am happier in my own skin than I have been in years…” and while that might sound a bit surprising coming from me the truth in that statement is beyond truthiness. Continue reading
