I’ve been reflecting upon many things. Partially inspired by envy, greed, want, desire, and the rapid approach of the oncoming 40th. One thing I was thinking about is the lust for material, for physical goods, for more things. A friend of Psycho Momia’s was up visiting today. He had offered to help us with the ongoing bedroom project. What he had to say can wait for another post, though. Looking in his truck, I felt sudden dire tool lust. Later, I was thinking about it, and came to the conclusion (flawed or not), that I can do all the things that he had tools for with the tools I have – that I don’t really need or actually want a single task tool. Sure, it would make that one task easier, but for the other 98% of the time, it would sit and collect dust.
This whole thing led me down a path to where I realized the only material possession I have that is worth anything at all in the overall scheme of my life – is so small as to be insignificant to virtually anyone else. It is a small circle, made of tricolor gold, and rests upon the third finger of my left hand. As long as I have that, and what it stands for, I have everything I need.
So life has been interesting to say the least. In addition to the aforementioned chaos, Psycho-Momia has reconnected with an old, as she puts it, “Um,friend”. I get the feeling that if they were not both obstinate, Psycho-Momia and I would’ve never had a chance even to meet. For that reason, I’m glad they are both bull headed!
Anyway, this reconnection has Psycho-Momia glowing like an out of control nuclear reactor. I’m all a-frubble about this.
One great thing is that Um,Friend and I seem to think quite a bit alike. We are both devious, deviant, and love to tease her. If only she knew….
The mood of things around here is quite up and optimistic. It seems as though things are shaking out in a way that is better than can be beleived. Our New Tenant will be coming for the beginning of September, and we are looking forward to that. (Hiya, Summerhawk!)
I’m in the homestretch of my notice at the un-named soon to be former employer. I’ve been granted seasonal status – which means I’ll have to go back and work there a few days every couple of months, which I can handle. The “fruity” company job, I’m 90% sure is in the bag. They requested a background check on me, which generally means they are serious about wanting me to work there. This job will bring the steady cash that is needed, while giving me much more freedom to be with the Family and develop my own business from home. Look for an announcement about that here soon.
