    Thanks, everybody.

    Today I spent hanging pictures, curtain rods, and adjusting the furniture to be "just right". I also took out several bookcases/cabinets already. Nerga breeding grounds.

    There is an unofficial swap spot next to the recycle dumpster in the garage where people leave things that are not needed but are perfectly usable. I got a nice area rug for my guest room there and I have dropped off a few things as well. Whenever I look again, my stuff has gotten adopted by a new home. It's a nice system.

    That's awesome.

    I agree about getting rid of storage solutions so that you don't collect things!

    It's school holidays, so we are setting up for a declutter. I decluttered the office that DS uses and it's *great* -- now he can use it more effectively and so can we!

    Now, we're working on getting the closet cleared out so that we can set up a room for DS. It's an interesting process. It involves a lot of letting go of things that I didn't even realize we'd collected! :P

    Yep, if you keep too many cabinets/closets/shelves, it is very easy to just put some nerga there meaning to sort it out sometime soon. It is out of the way for the moment and out of mind. Next thing you know it has dug in and grown roots and sprouted and multiplied.

    Congratulations, that is so wonderful! We have a common swap area like that in our apartment complex, I agree it's a pretty cool system.

    Yep, one person's junk is another person's treasure and the net amount of nerga in the world doesn't change.

    I am sleeping so well at my new place. It is surprisingly quiet for being in the middle of a major metropolitan area.

    Of course the fact that I've been exhausted from moving furniture might have something to do with it too.

    Today I have a lunch date at this pretty little restaurant in the middle of Balboa Park (San Diego's central big park where all the museum and the Zoo are). So the Wolf Cub and I are going to walk there. I figure I've been doing a lot of lifting heavy things the past few days so a day of long distance moving at a slow pace would probably be a nice change up.

    More about the lunch date later.

    first, that's cute, Joanie. I was thinking the same thing. . .

    second, i love living in NZ. i just ordered a gluten free cake for DH's birthday, and she asked "vegan or paleo?" and I go "paleo" and she goes "great." DH wanted a carrot cake for his birthday.

    oh, and my client baked 50 gluten-free ANZAC biscuits for tomorrow, too. so awesome!

    Nah! My dalliance with the seafaring Piano Man I think is at an end. The ship was in several weeks ago and we had plans to get together and he just never showed up. Never called. No nuthin. I wrote him an email to ask what happened and he wrote back apologizing profusely but saying that the problem was that the ship staffing schedule had been changed on him at the last minute. (They have to leave a certain number of people on board at all times and everybody has to take a turn.) Cool. I totally understand that things like that happen. I was mad because he didn't take the thirty seconds necessary to whip out his cell phone and give me a call. I told him that but also told him that I don't hold grudges and we could move on. Haven't heard a word since. Oh well. That was never intended to be anything other than a fling. When he is not on a ship, he lives in Tennessee.

    Meanwhile, I may have rekindled an old flame in my life. This is the guy I was with five years ago when I got cancer. He stuck by me through that whole nightmare and is a big part of the reason why I didn't chug that bottle of booze and those pills and call it quits. The most kind, supportive, funny, sweet guy you could ever want to know.

    So, why did I ever let him get away? Good question. I think there is plenty of room for do-overs there. For one thing, we were only together for six months when I got sick and stayed together for well over a year after that so more of our relationship was about me being sick than anything else. That's not a representative sample of anybody's life.

    Also the other big thing that has changed is that he has retired. He used to work a very high pressure job for five days a weeks so the only two when I got to see him were a time to crash, eat a pizza on the couch while watching cable, have sex and then get ready to do it again next week. The sex part was always awesome. We had that right. Watching cable and eating pizza gets old. He is also learning how to de-stress and relax more than he used to.

    I got back in touch with him recently to let him know that my father had passed away (they were always good friends) and that I was moving and that I had made it to the 5 years post treatment mark cancer free.

    My neighbors at my old place threw a little going away party for me and a welcome party for the new buyers last Sunday and the xbf attended with me after which I gave him a guided tour of my new place which ended up in the bedroom. Then we had lunch yesterday and ended up back here again. Two days in a row! I think this constitutes "having a sex life" not just having sex. Yay!

    I may have overdone it a bit however. Feeling a bit sore today in special places. Chugging the D-Manose and trying to not get a bladder infection. I'm just not used to this. But I think I could easily get used to it.
