I woke up an hour early, rather chose to go to a later Minyan, so that when I wake up at the same time, I have time to write. It was 5:57 when I first checked the clock, 6:11 when I rose. And then I sent Sharleen a message that she could call me, and she did. So now my writing time is gone, and I go off to a bris (the later Minyan).
I got the identity/word distinction a bit better yesterday. It was my identity that was scared, and my word that was up to something else, and my word was that which I followed. It wasn't a struggle. It's just there are places in my life that that pops differently. It's what Todd Herman calls the alter ego effect. It just clicked for me yesterday, and I didn't keep all my promises, but I did a lot to reorganize my environment, and things look better. And I got on the Bowflex, and rowed, and advanced on my course, and got in action around my introduction.
But, now it's a few hours later, I'm not as proud about today as my yesterday, but progress continues to be made. I attended the bris, and took pictures, and sent them to the dad of the new baby, and he liked them. I think I'll ask him to be one of my test or early clients.
Yvonne is gone, and the house is a little quieter. And there's stuff I don't want to share, and I guess that's what a journal is for. I'll have to get myself one that I actually like. I have an Our Crowd giveaway, but it's not me.
I'm looking forward to seeing your mom.
And the Democrat hopefuls are bloviating on the American screens. I think they live in La La land, and I'm scared to think that any one of this crew might one day be running the United States. They are all so big government oriented. The Feds should remove lead from local water supplies, and provide housing, and provide $8000 a year for child care, and educate folk so they don't end up in prison, and fine companies if there remains a gender pay gap, and put us on electric cars by 2030, and address the inbuilt racism and privilege, and that's just from the half hour I saw.
It's kind of crazy, but they believe it enough that I think the middle is going to have nothing to do with them.
I'm past ten ideas for today. I'm going to lie down for a bit, and if I sleep through, that will be okay.
All my Love . . .
So I just need to share the rabbit hole I started going down, which was fun, but totally unnecessary. You see the ellipsis above is according to the Chicago manual of style, which I like. But I was going to put in the html code which is …, but that doesn't have spaces between the periods; so I wanted to look up the numeric code for an ellipsis. And I ended up on Wikipedia, and then I realized I had never looked up how a Lucas Series starts. So I looked that up. And then I came back here, and your momma called.
And now I'm posting and going to bed.
I'm going to exercise today. I'm also going to go through my format and either get re-enrolled in my shares, or make new ones. And I'm going to move forward or Alexis' course and on my plan. As I see it, that's ten hours on top of praying and learning, which are another two.
And I have Sharleen's visit to plan, and will probably eat something.
