Excitable boy

So "She Is The Light" is done; the first pass on lyrics complete with the minor edits needed. The idea for the musical composition is brewing. I am inspired, full-on. The someone I wrote it for and about has given her golden smile of approval.

A vacation from work is so appreciated; time and space away to think and breathe and not feel like I have to take care of someone else's duties. My own time. Pretty precious a commodity...

Happy birthday, Dad

My dad's birthday was yesterday. He would have been 76. This was obviously difficult to swallow; my emotion's currents change like the waves. I miss him no less than the day he died. And I wish for him to be at peace for his first birthday free of pain and illness.

I was lucky; had I been alone yesterday, I would have probably spent a good portion of the day in tears. Thankfully, after rushing back to Staten Island on a half-day from work to pick up the car, I, the special someone and her adorable daughter went out for lunch, iPhone shopping and for them to adopt a cat, which, happily is the case. A beautiful little 7 month old girl now has a happy, loving home. I spent it with people I love and care about; some of my family called in to check on me which I appreciate to no end.

So, happy birthday, Dad, up there. I love you and I miss you.

Let me roll it

Okay, so the car is in as of yesterday and due to be finished/picked up tomorrow. Fine, it costs me $500, but it's done expediently. Today and Thursday are my last two physical therapy sessions, then it's back to the consistant hitting of the gym--much like I used to in the beginning days of this blog. The osteopath's report was positive--no MRI necessary; nothing problematic that can't be corrected immediately by diligence and continuing the simple exercises I've learned in physical therapy. Starting to really control my dietary urgencies as well. Discipline again. Add to that, my first public singing in years this past weekend, and you have a good vibe going.

On the other side of the coin, I really miss that certain someone. Even though she's only in the next state for the first few days of this week, there is a void. And when she texts me to say she misses me, I acutely feel it. The sadness is actually rather nice.

Okay, back to work... only an hour to go...

Weekend rewind (take the good and the really bad)

Without too much fanfare, what started as a fantastic weekend has turned to shit with the fact that someone sideswiped the RAV4 while parked. The rear passenger door has been damaged and I now have to call the insurance and find out the procedures and cost for the repair. Fuck me. I did not expect this but I'm going to take care of it immediately.

Oh well. At least no one was in the car or injured. There is a bright side to it all...
