Today was pretty normal except that I took Gracie for her Spa Day to a brand new to us both place. She'd been a bit limpy lately, perhaps the cold has got to her eight-and-a-half + year-old body. MayBE she just was a little exuberant with her tennis ballies last week in the park.
Anyway, we found the place [and I am REALLY so over BEing a driver again...] and met the nice lady who was going to DO her thing. We reminisced a bit about good old Barkingham Palace and Papa Tony back in Delray Beach, but finally, with trepidation, I left her and went on my way to my FREE TIME.
I was less lost in the weeds than sometimes, and I found some ways to pass the time that weren't at all about cleaning [aka rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic]. That little chore I was happy to leave BEhind in the Wee Cottage. Our new Wee Casa is twice the size with about a quarter of the stuff.
I spent the morning and early afternoon DOing things that needed DOing and a few that did NOT but that I chose to DO anyway. It was fine. It was nice, really. But I was sure glad to come home to the message from the Dog Wash lady that my girl was coiffed and ready for pick-up.
I found myself thinking a lot about the past 2 months. We have only been here two months and I am starting to forget the Past and blend right on into the Present. [except for that car driving business... that ends tomorrow]
Moving was less a big deal this time. MayBE BEcause I have done it so many times I finally was ready to let it BE done without bother. I was open to the possibility that it could BE a simple thing. And, in most respects, I literally went to sleep in Delray Beach, FL, one night and woke up in Mesa, AZ, the next morning. Oh, there was a plane or two involved, but really, that was my intention from the day I decided to come back to AZ.
My mum thought I was asking too much. I knew though. I knew that BEing open to what I want is the surest way I know of getting it. And it is amazing how much BETTER THAN I'D IMAGINED IT BEing it was. [and is]
So... BE Open. That's my lesson from Today. And one I have had cause to enJOY greatly in 2013.
Sometimes I need to get out of my own way.
Mostly, though, I just need to remember to laugh.
