fiddlefaddle---so sorry to hear you were dooooown!
: that is really awful and I hope it clears up soon.
TC-I am dying to hear your name options! When you finally choose I can't wait to hear it. Who IS the new little dude? I sure wish I could just come over and relieve you of your old sofas...I just yesterday put money down on a new house!!!!! Renting it, I mean!!! It is unfurnished. Most rentals here are furnished since that is the market (vacationers, etc). I am totally psyched because where I live now, while nice and cozy, is tiny and this is a whole big house with lots of patio, some grass...it is great and in my same neighborhood (which is a great neighborhood, and almost impossible to rent anything for under $800/mo minimum. Now, I know you in urban areas will sniff at that but this is MEXICO!!! When I first came here rents were reasonable!) So now I will have plenty of room for all my maymama visitors whenever they get their a$$es down here. I am so excited and nervous. It's a lot more rent than I pay now but I'm feeling groovy since I made some good money this past month. And then, I am also in negotiations with my mother to bring her down here to live...yes...nervous about that but overall think it's a good thing. We'll reserve my current apt. for her as a trial home, for when she comes down here in January. I know I will be inviting more drama into my life but it just makes the most sense overall. She may decide not to move here but at least we'll know.
What do we do well? Hmmmm. Sol is quite good at balancing on things, walking/running in precarious positions, climbing on cement walls and sitting on the top of them, and generally doing things that make my heart beat fast and make me need to look away while dad helps her.
Yesterday I had some bodywork that I have been needing for quite some time, my neck vertebra were out, and this guy can do that kind of thing (like a chiro but spending more time with the muscles, like a PT). It was incredible! First he asks, "so, who's a pain in your neck?"
I think we ALL know the answer to that one.
Then he says, "I'm getting that you feel very responsible".
I made some response about my world and then suddenly, a big wave of tears came over me as I felt how overwhelming my life is despite my general veneer of being on top of everything. At the same moment, my neck lets go and goes back into it's proper alignment.
Aren't bodies amazing?
He made the comment that when one is superwoman, one enables others to not step up to the plate. And that it's hard to compete with superwoman--she makes every man look bad (which, we both agreed, is not hard to do). And that I need to ask for help.
Gah! When will this personal development biz ever cease? (I know, I know, when I die...jeez...)
Sol is withdrawing every stick of this very smelly incense and waving it under my nose, her nose, the dog's nose...
Now she is singing and doing the same. She was singing to Amara this morning, and those moments just melt my heart utterly.
Do you guys know I think of you each & every day? It is strange to talk about you to others--ie, this friend I have, well I've never met her but we've been friends for over two years online--well, anyway she blah blahblah...
