Thoughts of Men, Water, and Direction

Yesterday was Father’s Day. I chose not to dwell on that or even think about it really. My Father has been gone since 1995 and God wonders what he would think about this situation I’m in. I used to tell HIM how proud my Father would be that HE was such a good man and so good to me. My father would be so disappointed.

I thought about the men in my life. I haven’t had a lot of positive encounters with men. My brother means well but we are a generation a part and were not raised in the same time period. Our thought processes are much different.

I can’t compare relationships other then to say, they obviously did not work out for one reason or another..most in heartache brought on by the man and my reactions. And now this..

I bought some new water recently. I need to keep drinking a lot of water with my kidney issues, if I want the kidney to continue working correctly. This time I bought Mineral Water, which I love. I wonder if the changing of water type and taste will change the taste of my own tears; at least the salt content? Guess I will find out.

I can finally see the counter in the bathroom as I organize this place. So, that is saying something semi-positive, I guess. Or, at least I can say I am moving in the right direction.

Finish Organizing

I still haven’t finished putting everything back since the housekeepers came.  That’s the thing about having a housekeeper, even for a day.  You have to move everything.   Especially the first time.  plus,  one thing I didn’t like…  You know how they ask you, “How often do you clean?” but not in an innocent way.  It comes off more like, do you ever clean?, have you cleaned in the last century? do you know how to clean?  I don’t need your guilt tone lady..we hired you to clean for a reason.  The holidays had passed, I’d had surgery, I’d been sick.  I don’t need to explain my entire life to you and why I hadn’t cleaned.  Sheesh.

Anyway, January has been a horrible month for migraines but it’s February now so lets hope things get better.  Maybe since the weather is supposed to warm up.

I’ve already come to the conclusion there is no way I could live in a cold climate.

House Decorating Continues

I have to go get some paint samples for the Living Room and tomorrow night we have some people coming to give estimates.  We are hoping to get that done this wknd.  The paint needs to be beige or brown to go with the new floors.  What sucks is..I just got done putting the CD’s away but now I have to take them all down again since we are having the painting done.  Oh well, I can focus on getting my Library back together.

The Library is my special room and my favorite room in the house.  It is so cool now that it is the way I want it  I still need to get two matching chairs, I think.  I haven’t decided if I want to keep just the one.  I also need to work on shredding mounds of crap in the closet but as long as it stays in the closet until I get it accomplished, it looks great!  I even ordered a really cool, (I hate the word, “cute”) Cat Rug to go in there as an accent piece.

We need to get a Runner for the hallway and an Area Rug for the Living Room, but first we need to get the room painted and figure out the furniture.  In the meantime, I have set up my Exercise Mat on the floor so Petey has something to jump on when he wants to get up and down on the sofa and he doesn’t hurt his paws on the hard floor.  Plus, he gets no traction.

We have a 4-bedroom house and my husband and I both have two rooms we can do what we want with.  Mine are pretty well finished and he says he doesn’t really care.  What he really says is he has no decorating taste or style, but that’s not true considering we pick a lot of things together and his ideas are turning out really good.  One of his rooms is pretty much Laker themed which I  help out with when it comes to gifts and things and now I know something else he wants to start collecting which will help.
