Bliss


The dishes are waiting. My new sinks are different; first off, there are two, and one doesn't have a garbage disposal. I'm really really busy now, that is, if I can keep it up which I mostly can't. I'm off for the middle floor, the dishes, and spray painting. Thank you God, I just did my dancing. I prayed for the will to exercise and came upon dancing in my studio. I love dancing to my music. And in my own single house in a wooded lot in Delaware. I am aware of how blessed my life is. In our world, with so much struggle and needless suffering, to have two grown children, two very smart children, both educated and reasonably healthy..is a gift. That they care for me and their father, worthless though I feel we are, is a blessing. To have worked at jobs for which I was consummately unprepared and certainly unfit for thirty years and come away with a pension and social security, is a gift from God. And then to be led to this beautiful house that's all we asked for, everything we wanted... And get it. My Social Security Disability was granted at once, so I don't have to worry about finances.
It's much later now and while I still feel grateful, I'm also tired. It's time for bed.

i love that painting jayne.
we moved into our house a year ago and there are still things unpacked.
i love my house still, it is roomy and interesting, and even though we are no longer in the down town core, i wouldn't change homes to go back.

Thank you Cara. And thanks for the heads up about unpacking. You know, I think the really dirty floors are getting to me too. There are a lot of floors and no matter how much I'm ever going to clean, with two very shedding kittens, those floors will always have fur clumps hanging around. Actually, I'm hoping to get one of those rombas--the robot vacuums. I have to check on how effective they are.
I'm glad you like your house too. I guess we're closer to the center of town, but now it's a little town and that's way different. I always said people usually need to change jobs after twenty years because they burn out, but I think the same is true for neighborhoods.
