Contrary to popular belief (and appearance), this blog is not just for SSS or even TToT (although I haven’t gotten there in a couple of weeks either…)
Ive been under the weather and with the holidays and the nature of illness and immobility, I just haven’t gotten to blogging…. NOW if…and only if….I were to entertain the idea of honesty, I would point out the obvious…a.) This blogginng wall has been up a heck of a lot longer than the three weeks Ive been down for the count and 2.) (Shoutout to Clark there) there are days Im bored to tears but…. Why would I write and risk less frustration and angst? I mean, why would I wanna get rid of those ? They’ve stuck with me through this whole thing…why would I turn on them now??? PAHHHHH…BLOGGING….what could I have been thinking?
Well, it’s 4:02 a.m. I just took an an antiinflammatory and it is already slowing my head down….so fasten your seatbelts and return your trays to the upright position….here we go.
A few weeks ago I had a conversation with a friend who has what sound like incredibly vivid dreams…. Im a bit jealous because I used to dream like that but now , I can barely recall if I dreamed or not, and thats been about a year or more. I decided to meditate about sleep and dreaming to see if it would change at all. I have had two dreams that I can recall since starting this… Last night I dreamed I was home sick, but my mother wanted me to paint the upstairs hallway (I don’t think we ever had an upstairs….never mind a hallway)… I woke up when I opened the cans of paint (because of course they were florescent orange and magenta …oh and did I mention that I was expected to use a toothbrush because she wanted me to try some new faux technique?)
How was your holiday? I have a running sort of joke about the big three winter holidays… If Im gonna be missing something in the year, it will most likely be at least one, if not the entire trifecta of Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year. One year I went into the hospital on November 17th and discharged January 2nd. Oddly, the hospital isn’t as bad as you’d imagine especially if you have a fairly dysfunctional family or group with which you regularly spend the holidays. This year the plan had been for the eve to be with sibs and family and Christmas day quietly opening a few gifts with Mom. I didn’t get to do that this year but that’s cool. I like quiet and I am not much of a material girl, so I can wait. Last year I had handed out everyone’s gifts and forgot my own. I found them in the trunk of my car sometime in February….luckily only one pack of moldy cookies!!! Mom and I will be celebrating Christmas in a few weeks. She spent the actual holiday with my sibs and their families. She had a really nice holiday which makes me happy.
As usual when Im not at my best, I have turned to B movies. So far “It Came From Outer Space,” and “The Colossus of New York,” have been totally ridiculous films during which I may have fallen asleep, or thoroughly enjoyed….i can’t remember.
Ok. Enough rambling… I feel more sleep coming on… Wouldn’t want to start saying REALLY stupid stuff….
