Now that the site is up we are turning our attention to getting the house in order. We have been living in chaos since the repairs took place downstairs. We're making some changes too and so we're trying to clear out whatever we can. I am surprised by how attached I am to things and the way they bring me back to certain memories. I was all teary yesterday when I put these away in the teak china cabinet top and just felt the presence of Mom, Grandma and Auntie Laima. That's what makes these treasures.
Monday was a bit of an odd day. Usually on Mondays I sort of plan the week and get things cleaned up, organized, in order, etc. But given it was the holiday I mostly wanted to just relax. On top of all that, this beginning of September always feels like fresh start time and that is the spirit I tried to take the day to, and with that I did physio and paired it with watching Star Trek: The Original Series from the beginning (again). It was good to do this, and it was really nice that my place is clean and clear enough to move the table to create floor space with ease. And for my efforts, I got a gold star Star Wars sticker. Woohoo!
The long weekend seemed to take forever to get here with me being stuck at home with a headache or waiting for the plumber to arrive and work on the pipes for the new tenants downstairs. We went to see The Raid 1 and 2 at a double feature at our rep theatre (OMG, so violent!) and Monday we went out to dinner at a gaming pizzeria for our D&D friend and I finally got to play the game Sushi Go. I had no idea what I was doing but it didn't matter, it was fun. Everyone was really nice and my pizza was crappy but it was nice to just get out to some place new.
