Going Through the Motions

Lately, I’ve just been going through the motions of putting one foot in front of another. I’m faking it until I make it, you could say. This year has taken quite a toll on me, as it has most of us. I’ve counted my blessings and I promise I am grateful. However, some days putting on that happy face is a huge struggle. The holidays haven’t really helped much. Fortunately, that’s almost over for a while. I’m holding on to the hope that 2021 is a better year. I want to say that it has to be, but I think that this year has proven…repeatedly…that it can always get worse.

What dirty dishes?

This is how you get out of trouble for not doing the dishes. *grins* You just stand real pretty in something distracting and offer some treats. Now, what significant other could possibly be upset about a few dishes in the sink when they can have hot cocoa, churros, and this? None with a pulse, I can tell you that! *giggles*

Mostly Anxious

Today is going to be an exceptionally busy day for me. I have to go out into the cold world. Yes, I mean, literally cold. I need to vote and run some errands. Ugh, I so hate leaving my house. Meanwhile, at home…inworld…its that time again and I need to get TLC open and ready for our dedicated shoppers. I’m excited about this round and hope to do some pictures of some of the amazing designs our creators have exhibited this round. I don’t have a ton to talk about right now. I’m most feeling really anxious about going out today and facing the voting lines.

Adjusting to the Weather

I woke up this morning and was soooo cold. Like chilled to the bone cold. I immediately opened my curtains to let the warmth of the sun in and grabbed my favorite sweater. Here I sit all bundled up with my coffee…shivering…I look at my phone to check the temperature thinking it must be below freezing, right? WRONG. It’s 52°F/11°C. Mind you, we had the air conditioner on two days ago and its set to only come on when the temp is above 78°F/26°C. While its certainly a lot colder than two days ago, I’m sitting here laughing, because a month from now….52°F/11°C is going to seem quite warm.
Isn’t it funny how our bodies adjust so quickly? It really is quite fascinating when you think about it. I’m happy for the cooler temps, I’ll just be happier once my body adjusts.

I’m so, so done

‘Cause I’m so, so done
Guardin’ my tongue, holdin’ me back
I’m livin’ the way that I want
‘Cause I’m so, so done
Fighting myself, goin’ through Hell
I’m livin’ the way that I want
I’m livin’ the way that I want
I’m livin’ the way that I want
I’m livin’ the way that I want
I’m livin’ the way that I want

I lost control over all my energy
Done so much damage to my heart
I’ve given in, I’ve changed my identity
I didn’t mean to go so far, umm-mm

Oh my God (God)
I wish (Wish) I could be (Be) better than this
My God, wish (Wish) I could be (Oh-oh)

Stay Safe

I haven’t talked about the Corona Virus on my blog much, because I feel like everyone is dealing with it across the globe in a variety of ways. I can’t speak for people in other countries or even in other parts of my own. What I see locally scares me to absolutely no end. People in my neck of the woods are carrying on as if nothing has happened. While a few businesses have closed down and schools have shut their doors, the bulk of my area is carrying on as if nothing has happened. Some people are even quite belligerent in their protests of the places that have closed. I have no doubt that the virus will wash over this area like a tsunami within a week and THAT scares the crap out of me. I just want everyone to stay safe and do their part in reducing the curve.

Dressing Room

I think most women would agree that it would indeed be lovely to have an entire room in which to get dressed. I know I would and I don’t even like to leave the house! Though to be completely fair, I imagine it would be a complete mess and nothing like those gorgeous walk-in closets that we tend to see on those shows that give us a tour of homes belonging to the rich and famous. Of course, if one could afford such a luxury, I suppose it would also be favorable to hire someone to clean up behind us. I think I’d rather have someone to do my hair every day, especially if I could relax my head in a shower bowl and receive a daily scalp massage!

Let’s Taco ’bout You

If you’ve been in Second Life for any substantial amount of time, then you’ve had someone get all up in your business. You’ve had someone watching your every move. You’ve had someone hate you for no rational reason. You’ve had someone make you out to be something you’re not. This happens to all of us at some point in time. Hell, some of us even experience this in real life. I really don’t know what happens to a person to make them behave in such an obsessive manner. We’ve all been hurt and betrayed at some point in our lives. So, I have a really hard time wrapping my brain around what makes someone so consumed with other people’s lives that they allow it to rob them of their own joy. It’s actually quite sad, really. Can you imagine wasting so much of your energy on someone you don’t like and constantly trying to justify your actions to yourself?
Maybe you’re one of those that gets in other people’s business or stalks them or hates someone for no rational reason. To those that do the watching and hating, I have one thing to say, “Just maybe if you paid as much attention to your own life, your own business, you would have a life worth living. Until you do learn to mind your own business, enjoy the show, cuz the light in my life shines far too bright for me to be worried about you.”
I’ve said it many times in the past and I’m sure I’ll say it again, “If you’re not feeding me, financing me, or fucking me…your opinion of me does not matter, nor do you get a say.” So, keep talking about me, keep accusing me, keep watching me, keep hating me….as for me? Well, its Tuesday…and I’m having tacos, Baby! Of course, I wrapped this all up with Taco Tuesday. *laughs* Did you expect anything less?

Solitude

“There are days when solitude is a heady wine that intoxicates you with freedom, others when it is a bitter tonic, and still others when it is a poison that makes you beat your head against the wall.”
― Sidonie-Gabrielle Colette, Oeuvres complètes en seize volumes

Be prepared

There’s nothing quite like blogging a kitchen to show off some of the delicious foods that the creators in Second Life like to tease us with. Be it healthy or dripping in virtual calories, we can enjoy the assortment of goodies guilt free! Just so happens that I’m on a new regime to start eating healthier….living healthier, actually. So, be prepared to see more food in my posts, as looking at most of these delicious things will be all I can do! *laughs*
