… And breathe…

September 16, 2008

… whew…

The last week has been B-A-N-A-N-A-S.  Work has required that I work and it’s been fun.  I am angling myself to be quite the graphic designer 😛 That, coupled with a drive to get stuff done at home, has resulted in little time or energy for much else.

My DISH went out last week and the repair dude was scheduled to be there between 8a and noon.  My house was in such a state that I couldn’t risk anyone (not even Dish Dude) seeing it, so I worked on it some Friday night – ignoring texts from the infamous Steve B. to come out and play – then was back up at *gulp* 5am to do some more.  Lo and behold I get a call at 7a from DISH saying I’m the first appointment of the day so be ready at 8a.  ACK!!  I think I became some kind of cleaning and organizing Super Hero because except for the huge pile of cat hair, food, little and other detritus needing to be vacuumed my house was DONE.

Of course he couldn’t fix my DISH (can you say DVR withdrawals???) so he made arrangements for another tech to come on Sunday with another receiver (whaaaa!  all my movies and recordings – GONE!).  I sat for a spell, took a little nap, then went to pick up a Zipcar.

And where did I go??  You know where… THE DUMP! 😀

Those bags represent the last of the last of the bad juju I have exorcised from my home.  As I was filling them I was growing drunk with power I think 😛 I stripped the duvet off my bed (the one I have been sleeping under for fifteen years – no history there, huh?) and stuffed it in a bag.  Same with about 100 other things that were useful to me but to no one else – but also carried with it some history.

I have come to view my excursions to the landfill to be baptisms of sorts.  With each load I feel cleansed:  my hope and faith restored.
