i still remember the password to this thing, who knew?

i know i haven't posted in a while, and i kept saying to myself ( and tex ) that i didn't have anything to say.

actually that's totally wrong. i have so much to say, but thing is i feel a great wave of honesty coming. thing is, i'm not scared that my friends who read this(and the people who read this with the hope of me being unhappy so they can sqawk about it in other blogs) and what their opinions of me might be or how they might change.

i'm a little concerned about my opinion of me and how that might change.

i've been introspection girl lately. i've read my cards, checked my numbers ( well, those numbers too ), gone back to church, meditated, prayed, cried, laughed, journaled, i've gotten out old hymnals and sung songs in my room that once brought me answers....and so far, i've yielded nothing.

i think i don't know the question to ask. and maybe that's cause i don't really want to know the answer yet. maybe the key is just to shut up and listen and watch. i was thinking and looking at this amazing tree in my front yard. that tree knows what to do and when. it knows when to bloom, when to be dormant and re-charge, when to shed and begin the process to renew.

i need to be able to do this. i seem to be spun up all the time. sometimes that manifests itself in being totally paralyzed, sometimes in manic panic, sometimes in uncontrollable crying jags, but rarely in calm.

that's my goal for the rest of this week, to stay in the calm. to bend like the tree, and to never forget that even in the darkest time, the light is there if i remember to look. ( nod to dumbledore there) ... and i am the light, it's in me. and in you, if i forget that, when i call you - remind me please.

ok, i know i'm 'that guy'

that guy who has a cleaning schedule.

i like the house clean. and organized ( duh ). but clean.

i like knowing that anytime day or night, someone could knock on my door and my house is neat. no "here, lemme move that", no "i'm so sorry, i meant to pick that up", no "please excuse the mess". cause, there is no mess.

now, i realize i live alone ( aside from the great shedding machine ) and it's easier to clean up for one but DAMN.

there is a reason for the rantage. stick with me.

i was cleaning out a file cabinet this evening, when my neighbor called and said something along the lines of " (husband) is outside watching the car, and i'm outside talking with some neighbors and drinking some wine, wanna come join me for a cocktail"

me: "fuckin duh"

so, i straighten the mess a wee bit, and head outside.

we're chatting, drinking, i'm watching the breeders run after the 700 toddlers in the neighborhood, and a next door neighbor drives up ( in the mini van of course). her 2 kids come accross the lawn to show us ( well, ME for some reason ) their library books. Mom really is a beautiful woman, but she is d-u-n done. worn smack out.

She's offered a glass of wine, ( again with the fookin duh ) ... so there's the scene, we're all outside "traveler" of wine and chattin.

her kids start to go a little wild, and she invites us to her house so the kids can be insane in their own personal backyard....now i had heard tale of this house, so i needed to see with my own eyes.

now, all this to follow is super bitchy ( i bet you saw that coming ) - because seriously, this woman has her hands full, 2 small children, a waste of space husband, and from a wealthy foreign family, where she is used to be taken care of, not the care taker.

BUT GET BACK LORETTA! ( sidebar, RIP Billy Preston )

That house was a HOT SHITTY MESS. I've, wow - i mean WOW.

stuff EVERWHERE! yes not everYwhere, everwhere.

dirty dishes? check
clean dishes? check
toys everywhere check
dog food on floor? check
dog? NO , they don't have a dog. ( right )
newspapers scattered? check
kitchen island countertops hidden with crap? check
laundry room overflowing with clothes? check

me, taking a silkwood shower and re-vacuuming the house as soon as i got back.

big. fuckin. check.

( then i did the swiffer duster, febreezed the house, & straightened up again just to balance the neighborhood chi)

{ with all that bitchiness said, i really do feel sorry for her, she's gotta be completely overwhelmed, bless her heart ( that was a genuine heart blessing, just so you know ) }

They say it's your birthday.

Well, I say it's mine.

And I gotta say 36 has started off well ( and as Christel poined out 3+6=9 , and in our little world that's a good thing ).

I've been spoiled by the physical gifts from my friends, and calls and letters of love. I've gotten Roses, Gerber Dasies (in the cutest vase {that is SCREAMING to hold knitting needles}), a cake delievered to my door ( yeah, you read that right ), CD's, knitting stuff, and love. Lots and Lots of love.

I got handmade cards by the goddaughters ( and if you don't LOVE that, you're dead on the inside and I can't help you )

A very nice start to what I've decided will be a very good year.

More Love, Less Fear.
More Faith, More Questions.
More Friends, Less Foes.
More Caring What I Think, Less Caring What You Think.
Not ONE MORE MOMENT of letting the Assholes get me down.

I'm a lucky girl. I have friends that I love, that love me right back. And it's Sweet.


************************************************************************
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
I needed the shelter of someone's arms,
there you were
I needed someone to understand my ups and downs,
there you were

With sweet love and devotion
Deeply touching my emotion
I want to stop and thank you baby
I want to stop and thank you baby (yes I do)
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you

I close my eyes at night
Wondering where would I be without you in my life
Everything I did was just a bore
Everywhere I went it seems I'd been there before
But you brighten up for me all of my days
With a love so sweet in so many ways

I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
You were better to me than I was to myself
For me, there's you and there ain't nobody else

I want to stop and thank you baby
I just want to stop and thank you baby
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
How sweet it is to be loved by you
