I haven't written much the past two weeks. I start to, then get pulled in another direction. There has not been a great deal of down time for the past 12 days. Rent week, which is what we call the 5th through the 12th is our most insane busy time. Everyone who is paying late or not paying becomes top priority. 3 Day Demands for payment are posted. We have to pay our vendors & the owners. It is very difficult to pull my head away from the job during this week. Not that I didn't write down many ideas to write about, but by the time I drag my ass home, I want food, a glass of wine, a hot bath & absolute freakin silence.
Add to it my kids were home sick Monday & Tuesday and then my son was home again on Friday. This was a very long week capped off with my daughters first middle school dance and meeting up with the kids friends for a glow in the dark nerf gun game!
I had big plans to sit and write this fabulous post on the books I have been escaping into, but instead I decided to re arrange my living room/dining room. It started as I want to put the Christmas tree in this spot this year, but reality is I wanted to move my recliner back by the picture windows. I had my chair here when I first moved into this house, but decided to move it so I couldn't be seen if someone came knocking at the front door. By someone, I mean my ex-boyfriend. Now, well I am plenty comfortable sitting in my chair & ignoring the front door all together.
I also had a project of personal files, divorce files, the kids school files in a corner hidden by my recliner. I have allowed them to sit there in my daily damn view for 2 years. Today I decided they could live down in the storage area in the basement until I find the energy and where with all to tackle that project. By moving that huge pile of stress and unresolved business out of my sight, I can now sit in my recliner and see people & cars pass by. In two months, I will move my big ass Christmas tree right in front of my recliner & spend the best month ever rocking & watching my twinkly lights!!
It is very selfish, but I have just claimed the best spot in the whole house as my own.
I also picked a spot for my recliner that doesn't have a single electrical outlet in hopes of everyone staying out of my chair.
