Today: when I haven’t been freaking out, I’ve been full of gratitude.
And honestly, all the freaking out happened in the very early hours of the morning. Lying awake in bed, listening to little feet. Akkkk. I still have rats!
No – nothing dead or semi-dead during the night – a bit of rat poo in the kitchen.
I decided to adopt a Zen-like attitude. Between my LLs and I, we have done all we can. So there is no sense at all in worrying about it.
And that attitude began my day of gratitude. First and foremost, I am intensely grateful that Simon arrived at his mother’s place last night – that he made the drive over all those mountain passes – that he is safe. I am grateful that everyone I love is safe and with those they care about.
Today, I was grateful that I got to Costco for dog food and such and got into the longest line on earth at the checkout and it moved so fast it made my head spin.
Yes – I had to go to Pome and Costco and drive through the holiday traffic and all was fine. Abby and I had a lovely walk. Paul fixed my door and my washing machine (I think) and really – I am so lucky to have so much support.
