April 2nd --- This morning I woke up to a thunderstorm in progress. What a lovely sound, especially when you don't have to wake up immediately but can lay there and listen to the thunder, the birds chirping and the wind blowing.
Today's agenda: Training at 1:00 p.m. and physical therapy on my shoulder at 3:00 p.m. My first session with the therapist was on Tuesday and she spent at least 40 minutes on loosening my shoulder. My muscles were sore but the pain was almost gone. I'm looking forward to the session this afternoon.
I'm still waiting for a valid job offer. I've interviewed at two major investment firms (actually twice at each firm). I know one is running a background check on me now. My goal is to be working by May 1st. Please send good wishes my way.
I hope April brings you everything you need. It's a month filled with hope and new life for me.
My Uncle Sonny took me along to visit with a new friend. We pulled up to a small cottage-like house. Inside there was about 10 people sitting in a circle around a man. The man was Matthew McConaughey. I looked at my Uncle with an all questioning stare, telepathically asking him "how the hell do you know this guy".
Everyone around him seemed like they were in a trance of adoration. At one point he said "oh they should send up some donuts, I really, really want a donut" and began rolling back and forth in his chair. After the donut roll, he proceeded to a Brita Water Pitcher that was sitting at the end of the loveseat. It was in a clear plastic box. He opened it up, and pulled ice cubes from an ice drawer located under the plastic box, and dropped them in the Brita. He closed everything up. My Uncle who was sitting closest to the water pitcher pushed a button and the ice was crushed. Matthew then pulled out a teeny tiny cup and looked around at everyone and said he didn't have any more cups.
At this point I was like thinking "dude what the hell is wrong with you". I shouted out "I'll get some more cups" and left the room. I entered what I thought was a kitchen, it was very small. The cupboard doors were thickly painted and none of the doors closed. I opened up a cupboard and it was filled with specimen cups. Thousands of specimen cups in a variety of sizes were there. A man in a business suit walked by and said "this isn't the kitchen, the kitchen is downstairs".
So I followed the man. I came to a stairway that was long, paneled in a dark wood-grain. You could barely see the bottom of the stairs. As I began down the stairs, they were too narrow for me so I had to walk sideways. However, I finally reached the bottom of the stairs and walked through a series of doors before I was finally able to get out of this area.
When the final doors opened, I was in an underground "mall-like" area. There were thousands of people walking around in and out of shops. The man had told me the kitchen was the second door on the left but I couldn't see a door. Finally I came up to a security guard and said "Matthew McConaughey sent me down to fetch some cups, but I can't find the second door on the left." By this time several security guards at appeared. They began laughing and the first guard said "Oh so you know Matthew and he sent you down here?" None of them believed me.
Thankfully a woman in a lingerie shop across from where I was standing talking to the guards said let me call. I guess she had Matthew's phone number. She called and it was confirmed that yes I was indeed sent down to fetch some cups. The guards were apologetic and then I woke up.
Now... I didn't eat anything weird before going to bed, I did one of those Oprah-Deepak meditations before falling asleep and I really don't like Matthew McConaughey and I think those car commercials are so freaking lame.... so I have no idea in hell why I would be having a dream about him.
In the end we're all Jerry Springer Show guests, really, we just haven't been on the show.
Happy Monday my little Petunias......
I came across this pic of Marilyn Manson. Of course I also had a pic of me with "The Ears" so had to share. And I really believe in this quote... we all have family members or incidents in our life that could certainly be showcased on Jerry's show. By the way is this show even on anymore?
I'm not really a planner but I bought a new journal yesterday at Home Goods to track my food and water intact, log my weight, and notate my Afib episodes so I have it all handy when I go to the doctor.
I thought March enters in like either a lion or a lamb. But it seems to be arriving like an an abominable snow monster.
I'm so ready for Spring, for the melting of all the snow, for the arrival of spring flowers and for warm weather. I do realize we were lucky. We didn't get as much snow as other parts of the US but the snow has been on the ground for several months and I'm ready to let it go.
Since I'm snowbound (I have a shoulder injury at the moment) I'll be making chicken and noodles, something hardy on a good day. More snow is forecasted later today and then some freezing rain. I really hate the freezing rain.
I hope you are having a great Sunday and that March comes in just a little quieter for you.
