A new year!
For those of you unfamiliar with fish-time, 10/31/09 is "new years eve" and 11/1/09 marks a new spiritual year. The wheel turns. This time it turned with a lot of change. I spent 10/31/09 at a party, and it was really exactly what I needed. It re-affirmed that in the end, no matter how hard I try to change it, I have a submissive heart. And I'm more ok with that now than I was a few weeks ago.
For my costume, I was going for comfort. Knowing it was going to be a long night, I didn't want to be all trussed up in something unfathomable; so, I bought some scrubs from Wal-Mart and went as a nurse. Crocs and all. :) I was very comfortable, and I got a lot of compliments on my hand-made mask. (It was kinda sorta a mardi gras theme.)
Yesterday, Hub and I spent the day running errands, cleaning stuff out, and generally being busyworky. It was nice to spend time with him, though, in a downtime kind of way. I even took a nap.
Today is the first day of my new part-time status at work; so, I'm suddenly over-laden with time. I still have thirty minutes or so before I need to go to work. Already today we've walked the dog, I took a shower, styled my hair, put make-up on, and had coffee. I've caught up on email and blogs, and now I'm actually making a fairly coherent blog post. This might be the start of a new morning routine! I still have to pack my lunch for today, though. I need to not forget to do that.
So, as this new spiritual year dawns, I feel blessed. I feel humble. I feel claimed and calmed. I hope you all feel the same.
Happy New Year. :)
