It was almost like it was the rest of my life - it flowed. There were highs. There were lows. But there were no "stay down in the lows for a few weeks". It worked for me. I even noticed towards the end of the month, the days were getting a little brighter at night. It was around 6:15 the other night and the sky still held some of the reflection of the sun.
But really, I had a great February. I booked tickets for me and my kids to go to Europe. I closed a couple of deals. I increased my running. I owned the month. One day at a time - just like I said I would.
Then, if you follow astrology, "Mercury Retrograde" ended. If you follow astrology, "Mercury Retrograde" is a time of disorder - things break, nothing goes right, you can't get it going. During this time, you are supposed to finish old business - not start anything new - wrap up old things. But for me, it seemed to go better. ***Disclaimer here, I know enough about astrology to write that sentence, maybe another sentence or two. But, that's it. Much like the rest of my personality - a little bit of everything, a lot of nothing"..........
Then February ends, we come out of retrograde, and spring is within sight........
- A phone call arrives on February 28 letting me know a friend had passed. I got to start March by attending a funeral. He smoked, he drank, he didn't eat well - we all knew it was a matter of time - it still didn't make it any easier. He was only 55. He always made me laugh. It was a beautiful service.
- A candidate backs out of a position they were going to start - AFTER they had passed the background check, drug test and told the company they would accept. Yes - this happens to me at least twice a year. (I got this one out of the way). (which means I don't get the rest of my money)
- For some reason, I now get to go on holiday with my ex-boyfriends ex-wife.
- The guy whom fired me last summer? His daughter asked my oldest son if he would take her to her prom. It's next weekend. Of course he's going. He is my son. And I told him - please tell the sweet girl that whatever expenses you incur, her dad needs to pay for. Duncan won't. But, I will. I did text his wife so I could make sure the flowers match her dress.......(Guys take note - you want me on your team, you don't want me on the team against you). And the way my life works, Duncan and this girl will start to date.
- I ran 7 miles yesterday. I went to run 7 miles today. First though, I wanted to go to yoga - to stretch and breathe. I was running late and got to class about 5 minutes late. Or so I thought. I was actually about 35 minutes late. I then walked 4 miles
- The sucker punch of them all? The Hawaii house has a contract on it.
Yes, these are all "first world problems" - I have my health, my kids health and a roof over my head - (and I think I may even finally have health insurance again).
But, for now, I'm going to bed.
