Ever since my mom saved me from the huge a** wolf spider in the shower last week, I can’t help but suspect that there are more where he came from.  You know that tree outside my window that I talked about “loving” last week? …Well, it’s a spider paradise.  And I am terrified of the little bastards.  One time a spider jumped on me while driving my car and I almost sacrificed my own life to get it off.  It’s like all reason & composure goes out the window the second I am confronted by one.  Now before I get into the shower I have to do a thorough inspection of my towel, shower curtain, & house robe just to make sure there aren’t any around.  I’m thinkin’ it’s time to do some pest control action up in here.

Yesterday evening I went to look at a few potential places to live when I am able to make the move.  It didn’t take much for me to say “I want to live HERE!” at every place I visited.  😀  I think I am just mentally ready to be in my own space.  Like… now.  It may even be possible to move before August, but we will have to see how it all goes.  Once again (sternly to myself), there is no need to rush and I need to explore all of my options… both in town and otherwise.  This is a window of freedom & choice that may not happen again for a very long time.

My friend Chez sent me an image a few weeks ago that she saw at the doctor’s office, and I look at it almost everyday.  It is a photo of a sign that reads, “Your journey has molded you for your greater good.  And it was exactly what it needed to be.  Don’t think that you’ve lost time.  It took each and every situation you have encountered to bring you to the now.  And now is right on time.”  Sigh.  I love it.  🙂
