So I was watching an episode of Supernatural while huffing and puffing away on my arc trainer and that’s one of the final lines in the most recent episode. The two brothers were discussing what happens after death when Sam says that what happens after doesn’t really matter, because “hope is kinda the whole point.”
How true, how true. About everything.
We have had an exhausting week. The negative energy fog seems to be all around and getting recharged daily, while the positive influences have been rather weak and ineffectual. Plus whining about it here is not necessarily helpful, but hey, it is cathartic to have a safe place to write and vent. Unfortunately not every day can be the best day ever and sometimes I lack the energy to even try to find those elusive silver linings.
I am looking forward to a weekend of decluttering and housecleaning, but we scored some great clearance deals at Target tonight. Bugbiter tiki fuel for our outside lamps. Roundup to keep the greenbelt fire line intact. Grass seed for the dead spots we have in our yard. Bug spray for hiking. Yard insect control for when we’re having bbqs and such in the back yard. All of it was 50% off. The tiki fuel I have been watching and waiting and had all but given up hope of it going on clearance, yet tonight there is was for $4.98 per bottle. The rest of our purchases were M’s domain, so if he says we need it, we need it.
I have a listed several things on craigslist and have promised and been pep-talking myself to be absolutely ruthless tomorrow in thinning out the closet and dressers of the mass quantities of clothes and shoes I rarely wear anymore. Shoes are such a big deal – I love my shoes! – but there are pairs I have not worn in years and need to just let them go. LET GO! But my brain screams “noooo! not the shoes!” The battle rages.
Hope everyone has a fantastic weekend!
