I'm a little slow on the uptake today, maybe more coffee will help. I think it's all the green smoothies I drank yesterday, my body must be in health shock, haha! Anthony has started on an all juice fast for the next 10 days, and I hear the juice machine whizzing and whizzing as he makes up jar after jar of concoctions, all to be optimally consumed within 12 to 24 hours (or they lose their "value") so whatever is left over in the jar gets poured in my glass. I'm on veggie overload! You'd think that those veggies are crack, the energy it gives him! Me, well, they just fill me up, so I guess that's good too.
I was supposed to have a moving sale today, but that's not going to be possible, so I'm lucky I didn't advertise (just rely on foot traffic), or people would be irritated. I have a large project due on Monday, and need to work on it, plus, I'm not conducting this alone. Let the other "half" help dissolve our marital life together. I'm sick of shouldering the load for other people's mistakes. Anywaaaaaaaaayy....
The weather is slowly coming around, which always bolsters my spirits! The smell of the damp earthy air in the morning is so satisfying, you can smell the new life of flowers bursting through the ground, and it electrifies me. Spring is always such a welcome time of year, and even in the midst of personal troubles, I can't deny it's power.
I'm hoping to complete this move within the next two weeks, and we still need to get our dresses altered for Jill's wedding, as well as get Anthony's suit, shoes, Noelle's shoes, etc., plus start planning our trip in (parking, etc.), all while wrapping up my last week in this course, and starting another. I CAN'T WAIT to graduate in June and be done with all of this. I'm exhausted at this point, but I know the end is in sight...at least for this leg of the journey.
So, enjoy the little painting above, and more to come!
