busyness, dates, dentist in Brazil, dentists and doctors, gambling and shopping, returning, trips, vacations
“It is not enough to be busy; so are the ants. The question is: What are we busy about?” ―
I am sorry my dear friends for my silence. It was the usual busyness of life getting in the way of the fun stuff. I promised to be more present .
I arrived from Brazil on Sunday. It was an exhausting trip. I had 4 dental visits and worked on some chores at my mom’s house that needed attention. I also spent time hosting friends that often stop by to visit. I hate to say it but sometimes I just want more peace and quiet and less visitors.
I came back to NY exhausted but happy. Happiness can take many forms. There is beauty and happiness in being exhausted. My body is tired but I am re-energized by results and accomplishments. I am blessed I still have my parents so any time spent with them and helping them is well worth it.
The chef/restaurant owner: He still sends me brownies but we haven’t gone on any more dates. He was busy, then I was busy, but the truth is neither one of us is really that interested. My sister is still working for him so it is best not to have any entanglements anyway.
The lawyer/writer: Before I left for Brazil we had one date at a Brazilian restaurant called Plataforma in NY. He is a non-practicing attorney and a writer. I do love writers! According to him he has family money so he doesn’t need to work for money. He spends time pursuing different interests.
He is talking about running for Congress and asked if I would be supportive. Politics? really? I feel like running away screaming. Still, he was extremely nice and intelligent. Even though I didn’t get any sparks I have agreed to meet him next Thursday for dinner. Stay tuned.
“They refused to live in these moments right now. And they got busy in turning everything they come across, into a memory, which they could visit in the future.” ―
Mom is in town, so the usual gambling and shopping are the plans for this weekend.
Wishing everyone an awesome weekend! May light and blessings pave your path and permeate your days!
Life happens. it is much more important to live life than to worry about all the little stuff.
So very true!!

Thank you! 🙂
You are most welcome!
It is good to be in tune with life. I will miss it when I, finally, leave this vibration.
I am very near to perfectly happy without someone. Each time I am up at 4am and enjoying my video games or a show, I think that “if I was in a relationship, I couldn’t do this.” That is mostly true. Now, I just decide, mostly, when I go to bed and when I get up. It is my own schedule, not shared, and not someone else’s. I have moved past the “sour grapes” mode and realize that, while I would love to hold and kiss someone, this life is wonderful. A couple nights ago, I went on a dinner date. It was not for anything but to meet, eat, and talk. We both had a wonderful time and plan to repeat, but neither of us feels the need to get closer. It was freeing and showed me a possible world I could enjoy too.
Glad you are in your own world and seem happy.
Love you much,
