It has been another very pleasant day. I could get used to my days being like this -- my life being so calm and serene -- my feeling well and mentally fit. I have the drama of my father coming over tonight, but I am going to do my best to just smile and not let anything get to me. I am going to let the negativity flow past me like water under a bridge.
I still haven't poured out those three beers. They sit beckoning from my laundry cabinet. As I get to feeling better, I can be misguided and think I can drink again -- that those terrible panic attacks were just a fleeting thing. I know I need to pour them out so don't hammer it home and don't remind me. I just keep thinking that I may need them. Or is it that I want them? Rosa would drink them if she knew about them.
Rosa walked to the grocery store in the cold early this evening. She brought home stuff to make a pizza with one of those pre-made crusts. It was delicious. I asked for extra pepperoni and she complied. The pizza was pilled high with my favorite Italian meat. My job was cleaning the kitchen afterwards. I can be kind of anal about the cleanliness of my house so Rosa was careful to clean up after herself for the most part. I just have enough chaos mentally that I want my real, tangible life to be neat and tidy. Everything has it's place in my home.
Rosa left late this afternoon to walk home. It is supposed to get really cold again tonight and she was worried about her pipes freezing. It is going to be a long night without her and I will miss her.
The Homeless Guy got a job!!! I was so excited for him. Email (mailto:TheHomelessGuy@gmail.com) him and encourage him to continue. I know he doesn't want to hear this, but I think the only way he will ever get a home is to work full time, or just work period. He hasn't worked in a traditional sense in years. He doesn't have a rich family doting over him like I do that will buy him a house, and I don't think someone is ever going to just give him a house. I feel this is his last, best hope.
So, tell me about your day! I want to hear from my readers how they are doing. This can't always be about me! I hope you all had a good day and most are settling back into work after the holidays.
