I long for #pumpkinspiceeverything
Summer is hard enough when you live in the armpit of hell (aka Phoenix, AZ). On a record breaking day, it could be as hot as 116 degrees. Then, we get this crazy a$$ weather situation called Monsoon Season which adds a lovely layer of humidity to the mix. Delightful isn’t it?
No matter what, I love this desert and have called it home for most of my adult life. I cope the best that I can when it comes to the heat. I long for cooler days. I’ve struggled with my motivation this summer in regards to my health. Concentrating on building a foundation to my healthy self has become increasingly harder. Is it too much to ask for the world to stop for a bit so I can take a nap?
Objects, doors, windows, cubicles, glass containers on the floor are out to end me! I guess being a klutz is just an added bonus to being chronically ill. I can blink, and a new bruise will appear on my legs or arms. I’m often asking myself “when did I do that?” I know we all have a moments…but it seems to be blown out of proportion when you are ill.
Here are four things to keep you safe.
1 – Turn on the damn nitelight – this would have probably have saved my foot for crashing into a glass jar I left on the floor after a recent cleaning extravaganza
2 – When in doubt, call family or friends – “Hi, don’t panic, I’m bleeding!”
3 – Meditate – On the fact you’re the dumba$$ who left the glass jar on the floor in the first place.
4 – Purchase an overabundance of first aid supplies – Yassssss! I’ve got this one covered!
***when in doubt, laugh***
I am still plodding along on my rather slow adaptation of Marie Kondo’s book The Life Changing Magic of Tidying Up. This past month I took seven printer paper sized boxes to the thrift store for the Books portion of my journey.
WAIT? But, boosks! Yes, I know! But, when I look at it…just how many books on Yorkshire Terriers does one need? I had five…d’oh!
I am now getting to the point that I can see just how refreshing it is to add clear space and remove the dust. I am very pleased with the results of this past months goal. Unto the Paper portion of the purge!!
I have begun to believe that my blog has become stale, predictable and maybe for a few, not relatable. I haven’t felt the excitement to write. Ideas (or aka The Muse) seems to be taking a smoke break. It’s my job to inspire, reach your core and (if successful) make you laugh. Am I doing that with my money inspired posts?
Going through the Kon Mari Method recently has really “sparked” a need to purge all the areas of my life. This month, I was going to write about my Spending Freeze but I just wasn’t in the mood to go through it again. I mean, I have no problem re-hashing ideas – improve upon them, switch things up a bit. Realistically, this blog is not a frugal, money saving fest for the masses. It’s about a petite, quirky redhead who struggles to keep up with all the hares of the world while living a turtle pace life. (run on sentence much?).
I have already confessed to you in the blog about my addiction to money (yes, there is a program for that) so I have decided that this is my last in Money Monday posts. It’s time to turn over a new leaf, umm, turn a page, ahhhh hell – just move on!
Do not hesitate in the moving forward business – opportunities will pass your a$$ up!
