Oh such decisions!!!! First world problems are so difficult. Shall I use this wonderful iron or the other? Shall I eat beef or chicken today? Oh goodness, which of the available fresh foods before me will accompany that beef or chicken? Should I have a bottled beverage or can I go to the tap and have a drink of water that I know is not contaminated?
Yes, I am full of liberal guilt and know how lucky I am to be living on the right side of this planet. Yes, I threw a little pity party for myself today because I haven't been able to make time for artistic ventures.
But I sat on the front porch and watched a storm roll in and I couldn't have done that a year ago. I saw the meter readers walking around the neighborhood today and knew I'd be able to pay the utility bill when it comes due. When I go from room to room in the house and see the clean open space, I feel better. When I decide to move some little object from one table top to another just because it makes me happy, I know I'm going to be okay.
The dust will settle soon. Stay tuned for the further adventures of the newly divorced old lady.
