I haven’t been online much in the last month or so and I’ve been really missing it. My life has gotten more hectic than normal. I just want to let everyone know what’s going on.
I finally got my cast off my wrist so I’m back to work at my weekend job. I was able to work my full-time job with the cast. That means I only have every second Monday off now. Sometimes not that if I pick up an extra shift on that day. I don’t plan on working like this for the rest of my life but since I bought my house it’s been renovation after renovation and we’ve been doing it on a cash basis.
In the last month and a half I’ve been getting ready for the next phase of renos. I’m doing most of the prep work in advance of the contractor arriving at the end of the month to save some money. Between my sister, me and a friend who has helped on occasion it’s been almost non stop.
I also signed up for a photography class that is once a week for a month. I’ve wanted to take this course for a long time now but it has never worked out. When the opportunity came up again on an evening I could take it I jumped at the chance. In between classes the instructor gives us a few projects to do before the next class. It’s been a struggle to get them done but at least it’s fun and something I really enjoy doing.
Then there is the matter of therapy. The therapist has given me some work to do as well between sessions. I haven’t really determined how the therapy is going. I think this therapist is more action orientated. She says it’s one thing to have insight or knowledge about oneself but what do you do with this knowledge. I agree with that to an extent but the difficulty with me is that I can have a hard time with the ‘doing’. We have spent some time tying to figure out why. I have to say I find this is very frustrating but it’s probably good to have someone push me (I think). More on that later.
It’s been hard to fit all this into my weeks but hopefully in a couple of months the really hectic will slow down to the normal hectic.
I’m exited about getting this next phase of renos done. It’s my space in the house that is getting done and I can’t wait to decorate it although decorating is not my strong point. If any of you out there like decorating you’re welcome to drop by!
