Whatcha doing?

Now that I have started blogging again I thought I should tell you about my latest home improvement project. Just in case I disappear.

I am remodeling my bedroom. I have taken out the carpet and baseboards, now I am in the process of taking out the closets and the window seat. The wall between my room and the bathroom is next.

The window seat and the wall have electricity running through them. I am not an electrician but I am an optimist so I’m hoping they are interchangeable. I will conquer this and move those pesky little outlets and light switches.

But if you don’t hear from me for a couple days, maybe you should call someone.

I need a check up from the neck up!

Sometimes life takes us where we didn’t know we needed to go. Other times, we just sit on our asses and wait for life to find us. That’s what I’ve been doing for the past few months, eating bon bons and watching my ass get bigger and bigger.

I have tons of “reasons” for not blogging, not writing, not participating in my life. They are all just shit. I’m a lazy, unmotivated slug in the winter. I’m going to try to change that.

I started writing this blog because I was trying to figure out who I am now that I’m not who I thought I was, only problem is, I’ve been sitting and waiting for me to find me and make sense of it all. (Believe it or not, I had nothing to drink before writing the previous sentence.)

I found myself in that useless place, Dr. Seuss warned me about it but I wound up there anyway, the waiting place ...for people just waiting.

Waiting for the fish to bite

or waiting for wind to fly a kite

or waiting around for Friday night

or waiting, perhaps, for their Uncle Jake

or a pot to boil, or a Better Break

or a string of pearls, or a pair of pants

or a wig with curls, or Another Chance.-

Thank you Dr Seuss for describing my life so accurately.

Time to put a stop to that self pitying crap. I’m tired of waiting for my life to begin, it’s time to start enjoying my life.

So consider yourself warned, I’m back and my ADHD is in high gear. So many things to say, to do and to tell you about, and it’s all tumbling around in my head, just waiting.

In the words of Batty Kody- I’m back and I’m flapping free.
