Into the confessional…

This must be some kind of record, even for me. Six weeks into the new year and I’ve cemented my status as (oxymoron alert) a genuine phony. Did I burst onto the scene January One, fresh as a daisy, determined to slay the dragon of procrastination once and for all? Obviously not. In fact, things aren’t going well at all in that regard so you’re looking at part of a conscious decision to “do better.” Can ya’ stand it.

It’s wonky and off that this is my first post of 2019, and it’s important that you know I haven’t neglected you, my Faithful Reader, out of any malice aforethought, far from it. I say honestly, with no hint of whine in my voice, that it’s been an existentially tough winter, and the times I’ve wandered or marched into this space with intent to say what’s in my heart the words haven’t happened. Nothing personal, I promise, and everyone’s probably lucky the werding stayed dammed up until I could filter and tame it a little.

As of last week, I’m introducing my being to the wonders of Tai Chi and can already see its residual benefits starting to make themselves known. There has to be a starting place – I’ve tried several disciplines, always with hope – keep a good thought for me with this one, as it seems to hold promise.

One more thing for now: My piano – I’ve played it only once since New Year’s Day. Please help me hold myself accountable to turn it into a habit (again). I promise not to throw anything at you for nagging me. Bonus, my aim is truly awful.

    Everyone gets hangups from time to time. I’m going through a particularly bad one now having sold up my old place and moved on, but downsized.Ever tried fitting a gallon into a pint pot? then you’ll know the feeling.

    This small, (I thought perfect for me nesting spot) has had to be gutted and is oh so slowly being turned round by my brilliant grandson who is putting all his design expertise into focus – and winning – but ohhh the dust and debris. I keep saying – no omelette without some broken eggs – but I still feel desperate.

    The red letter day for completion of work is due around March 1 – but could wander into the first week of the month. I promise to keep you posted.

      Revamps from the walls out are so totally trying – especially when you go right on living in the middle of it all. Do keep me posted and I’ll celebrate wildly with you when it’s done! (And I’m excruciatingly well-acquainted with the downsizing so I can thoroughly relate.) Here’s to cozy nesting spots, SOONEST!!
