I have the worlds largest cat sleeping on the chair next to me. I have the pictures to prove it that I'll post tomorrow.
Today I've been feeling down again, but there are circumstances...1) it's grey, grey, grey here. Lot's of fog and no sun. 2) I'm leaving to go back to my mess of a life tomorrow. I should have my car, that's a plus. 3) I'm feeling the beginnings of a cold - tired, scratchy throat, slightly headachy.
I got to see MyMentor and her partner this afternoon. She's such a positive woman and really progressive. I can't think of what would have happened to me in college, if she hadn't been around. She's such an inspiration about how people can continue to move and change into their 60s (and hopefully beyond).
Then tonight it was on to see MNDoctor, her partner and their daughter. The wee one is so sweet and eventually warmed up to me to give me hugs. Whatever shyness she exhibited was more than made up for by the overt affection of one of their kitties, Tolliver. They have a beautiful new home. It's always good to reconnect with MNDoctor. Believe it or not, she and I were thrown together as dorm mates our first year in college and we've remained friends ever since.
So back I go to my home tomorrow...my 30 day notice to vacate in hand. I'm not going to start any packing until after the new year, so I have this one last weekend to just nest in my home before my life becomes chaos.
B is picking me up from the airport and taking me to pick up the car...I'm grateful not to have to take BART.
I want to thank all of you who come here every day and post comments. You cannot know just how reassuring it is.
Oh, on a last note. I did do a tarot reading for myself tonight. It tells me that I should be moving into a more balanced time in the future (how near that future is is a little unclear, but still it gives me hope).
