There have been times when I was in shape and my hair looked good, that I would be driving on a beautiful sunny days with the tunes blasting and I would have that feeling which can only be described as WOW…LIFE IS GOOD…I’M IN LOVE WITH LIFE….YOU CAN’T GET TO ME TODAY SO DON’T EVEN TRY…. As I got older and older with big girl problems, those feelings went away; in fact I cannot even remember when it happened the last time. But, I was thinking tonight while going thru some photos for scrapbooking…this is so fun…I look forward to it…I can’t wait to get my work done so I can sit down and do it….it is like that whole wind through my hair thing from years past…only different.
Another giddy feeling I used to have is when I went to the library…I would load up 3 or 4 books…not because I would read that many before they were due but because in my effort to always be prepared, I would get that many books so at least 2 or 3 I might like. Then I would head home, knowing I had to play mother, wife, cook or maid and wanted to hurry thru everything so I could sit down and lose myself in a book. I still love to read and do so every day but I don’t have that giddy feeling that I can’t wait to go home and get into a book.
I love to vacation and/or camp…I love the weeks building up to the trip…except for the day just before we leave. I love the prep, the trips to Walmart for possible missed items and I love being better prepared financially now because I know that if I forget something, I can stop and buy it… that takes a lot of pressure off of the preparation…
I look forward to scrapbooking…see paragraph 1…Debbie and Karen and I decided a while back that we would rotate each others houses each month to scrapbook..but have found a real home at Debs which feels loving, safe and comfortable so we haven’t gone anywhere else. Safe and comfortable and loved are good.
Until next time…..
