Same old, with a covid-twist

It’s hot.

Don’t @ me, I’m allowed to state this fact. We had a 6 month winter and I like it when it’s hot. I’m just sayin’…Also. Air conditioning is nice for sleeping. 🙂

No sparks of joy here while decluttering

After spending a few days in my mom’s clean house, I came back to mine and was overcome with a need to declutter and deep clean. No time like the present! (Ugh. I hate when I say stupid shit like that…)

Of course my return home was not smooth and uneventful. As I said yesterday, the look around the place had me suffer a conniption which catapulted me into action, so at least that. Right? Continue reading “No sparks of joy here while decluttering”

Changes: something’s gotta give

A couple of days ago my boot-camp lady sent an email advising us that she was finally able to secure a permit to hold outdoor classes at nearby parks. 😃

There are a few changes: bring your own yoga mat, maximum 10 people per class, distanced stations to circuit through, etc.

She will sanitize the equipment (weights, rope, balls etc) before, during and after.

It’s exciting…but, I’m hesitating.

Will nature calm disquietude and restlessness?

I waver back and forth between a house in the country (mainly his wish, and my daughter’s) and a small minimalist (aka empty and void of all nonessential clutter) place in/near the city with access to this, that and the other*.

What is the answer? Continue reading “Will nature calm disquietude and restlessness?”

Letting (her/yourself) go

Disclaimer: I understand that many/most people have bigger fish to fry while the world is falling apart than to sit and contemplate this vanity-induced post here, so if you do comment, please be kind (but still honest) – I have no qualms blocking anyone if you attack or put down someone’s opinion on my blog.

Once upon a time when I was young and stupid, I dated some people I shouldn’t have.

Recently, I reflected on some comments one of them made, that have me irked. (sorry not sorry)

Here’s one that surfaced today: Continue reading “Letting (her/yourself) go”

Living in a bubble

Disclaimer: I’m feeling sorry for myself. Don’t be rude or obnoxious in the comments, I’ll block you. None of my self-absorbedness in this post means I’m not anxious or active in other, more important things going on in my family, community and beyond. This post isn’t a tally of what I do for others; I don’t feel like justifying myself to anyone today. This is my blog and today, this is what flows out of my head and into my keyboard. Sorry not sorry.

Some days I feel like I’m living inside a bubble.

I don’t mean to imply the bubble is an isolated, lonely entity of solitude, because there isn’t much of that despite still staying home most of the time. I just mean the lack of external obligations has me more isolated than usual, and for longer than usual. Continue reading “Living in a bubble”

Step back to propel forward

It was within the last year or so I created some mantras as a reminder to stay focused.

I’ve been struggling with focus recently, so I figured a revisit to my mantras was due.

There are two that deserve mention today.

Prevaling introversion

I remember now why I evolved into introversion over the years:

I don’t want to witness, be surrounded, or entertained by idiocy. 😳
