Unproductive and Hot Day

Today has proven to be both hot at 84 in my living room and only a small 58 word article written. All my shade is on the side of the house without window screen. Two windows open in the shade would make all the difference in the world. We got one open, just had to move the television set for a moment. Now if we can find a new home for the set it'll be great! I'm wondering whose bright idea it was to face this place so that the most windows were toward the afternoon sun when everyone knows that it's the hottest part of the day? I want awnings over the windows but I want them on a new home and not this place. It's falling apart, and I don't have the energy or the heart to even begin the repairs that would buy another few years out of it.

It's cooler in Theresa's room, even though it's on the front of the house and the window is closed for lack of a screen and my nerves. There is no carpet in her room which means the heat isn't sucked into it making it unbearable. If I could move all of my desk into her room we'd spend the day in there. That is if she'd cooperate since her ceiling fan creates enough of a breeze to make her room a good choice. I'm spoiled to air conditioning especially living without natural shade to provide a breeze.

Well, whining isn't getting it to cool off and there is a water leak under the house causing the light bill to run higher so I'll be figuring out what to work on next out of necessity. The funny part is the back yard has shade right now that'd be really comfortable to sit in but the back porch (which I use regularly to go in and out) is rotted. A few years ago I got a nice big front porch that I can't use because there is no shade. Don't you love it when people take it upon themselves to decide what you want?

I can remember that I used to get excited about the holidays but that was a long time ago. I was a kid and family still enjoyed a home cooked meal made mostly from scratch. The thought of going out to eat or buying frozen dumplings never crossed anyone's mind. I miss those days more than anyone could ever imagine.

Now I prefer to spend the holidays alone with the daughter that I have with me. I'd love to spend it with both of them but that's not always possible. This year I'm taking my youngest to my mother's and hubby is going with his parents to their family. Someone is cooking, I have no idea who. All I know is that they're huggy people and I'm not.

Well, I'll be going now, I have nothing else to ramble about.

Working it out

I was attempting to figure out yet another crisis when I determined the entire thing was basically in my head. The idea of being able to work from home again was one I had all but given up on until I determined that it was and is the only way to ensure that I achieve everything I need to achieve in a given day. I found help to renter this world from a friend.

Achiements and Goals

The last year I managed to meet my biggest goal, one that was long overdue and obsessively planned. I moved home from Arkansas and left the stupidity surrounding me behind. Now I am focusing on the next set of goals, and finding that I no longer no where anything is in relation to the objective that I am searching to achieve. Things change in four years but not that much.
There are still animals in my orbit, or rather animals have returned to my orbit since they aren't ours. We get visits from the cat that lives downstairs, who promptly makes himself at home each and every time. Theresa worries about how well he is cared for while he is in our new home visiting.

There were a lot of goals set during the last year and looking back the largest of them was achieved; now it's time to move onto the next set of goals and reevaluation of the ones that weren't achieved to determine if they are worth continuing toward or if they require altering. Planning for them was obsessive, an…
