Back on track report 8-17-10

I feel like things are going well. I am trying to do things for myself and things that make me happy. I spent Saturday with Susan going garage sailing and then out to lunch. It was not so much bargain hunting, but spending time with Susan that was great.

Yesterday I spent a large part of the day napping! I never put on regular clothes! It's funny. On the phone today Garet asked me what I did yesterday - I said nothing because all I was thinking about was the napping. Then I realized I watched a movie, polished my copper-bottomed pots, took trash out, did a load of laundry, read a bunch of my current book ("Animal, Vegetable, Miracle" a MUST READ!!). I also installed a doorknob, put away some tools that have been lingering in my room, organized my bathroom closet, and probably about five other things I don't remember. I think the point is that it felt like "nothing" because even though it sounds like tasks and troubles it was all stuff I WANTED to do! I also watched some TV. I haven't watched TV on TV as opposed to the internet for a long time.

So it felt great. I need to squeeze some exercise in there and that kind of day will be a perfect day.

After work tonight I did some quick dinner. After dinner I spent some time chatting with Michael. I realized I haven't weeded a lot this year and remembered how much I enjoyed it last year and went out and had a great session - just like meditation or therapy. Imagine relaxed sigh here. Now I have a couple more tasks on my little list and then I'm off to dreamland.

PS - Note on my blog roll that Michael started a blog. He would especially like his cousins and relatives to read it!

PPS - Nephew Paul is back from Iraq! I guess he is stranded in Maine right now, but should be getting home to Washington state to Wife and child soon!

It just feels better when they are out of harms way. I'm glad Paul is back.
