Sometimes I feel as if I am stuck in molasses with my energy. It just won’t GO at my usual speed. Thoughts are slow. I can’t myself to do much of anything, only the bare essentials.
I have learned to adapt to it. It’s energy upgrade, or something. I’d love more explanation sometimes about ‘things’ in Spirit, but I don’t ‘get’ that opportunity much.
Yesterday I wanted to pick up Anthony from school early. But one thing after another got in my way. He was a little upset about it. I remembered he needed new shoes, and we were able to buy him a replacement pair for the ones he enjoyed so much. We are friends with the manager, and she and her assistant were thinking about us earlier in the day (5D anyone?–they have no clue, yet they ARE indeed showing signs of it!). We saw photos of her amazing trip to Morocco to run with her daughter. I saw the Sahara, her on a camel, and some areas that were really beautiful. They reminded me just a little of the planet Tatooine, too. I’m not sure why.
I have come to the realization that much as my ‘cup’ seems ‘filled’, it has to be in tip top ‘shape’ for me to get out anything Spiritual. I have some certificates to print up. I have bracelets on the table ready to box up and send. Next day off I can work on this, and I feel like it will ‘flow’.
It’s funny how even my bracelet-making seems to come with the full moon. I get a huge burst of creativity…
Last night Anthony’s project went well. He is a very slow gluer of popsicle sticks, but he was engaged. We had bean dip for dinner. We add a little ‘stuff’ to it. Our house is such a mess there is no table space clear, and Anthony’s needs superseded my ‘cleaning’ time. So we had a ‘picnic’ in the entryway where we worked. He was so happy, delighted, and thrilled! We even forgot the chocolate covered strawberries for dessert.
On our vacation, the woman who watches our pets came to the house. I saw THREE signs of not cool things. None were her fault. The first was I think she gave corn cob bedding as food (she gives fresh green produce too so the bunny was fine). She just didn’t find the pellets. The second was that a knob fell off the birdcage, the one where I keep water bowl. I noticed something was unscrewed. I calmly went upstairs, got a screwdriver, and fixed it. Now it’s as good as new. The last was the fish tank. The poor fish was overfed, and in toxic water. Most people don’t know you starve betta fish. He eats the plants six days a week, and then a few specks of food on Sundays. I cleaned the tank, gagged a little at the smell, and everything was fine.
There was no judgement. Only a note to self to have written instructions for our longer trips.
Our betta is four years old…
We do okay.
Storms are blowing out of the way now.
- at work the final solutions from the partners only takes away one ‘first pick’ day from me versus full time. I still have eleven calls per quarter. For the amount of time I need to ‘sort things out’ my income is good. I rode that one out well.
- my reappointment application person couldn’t read my CME’s. I was able to cut and paste and send just this morning. I was calm (this is the one that took me several month’s delay to complete)
- my wrist is much better. I have the bandages off. I held a crystal to it last night, Ross’s suggestion. Today I work with my friend the hand surgeon, and I will make sure all is well with it. It still is exquisitely painful to the touch.
