Bogarting the MrsV

For the first time in over a year, things are actually going pretty well in my life. It's amazing what the right meds can do. I'm happier and more energetic than I've been in a long, long time, and so, unfortunately, real life has been bogarting the MrsV.

Yes, it's true.

I've been doing real-life stuff.

Shh! Don't tell anyone.

I think I've logged on to WoW once in the last month. I haven't done much updating here, although I do intend to finish the story of my now-reasonably-clean office (which, by the way, is seriously disturbing to sushirob -- I think he may have reverse-claustrophobia) and a few other things.

So, really, what have I been doing? Well, of course, cleaning the office was a big one. I've been working on that for over a month, and it's finally almost done. In the process of cleaning, I found my old jewelry-making supplies, and got interested in jewelry making again. Here's a sodalite which is my very first wire-wrapping attempt. I like it, even though it is completely unlike what I started out to do. I also made a necklace for my mom with a wire-wrapped amber as the centerpiece, two larger citrines to each side, and various gemstone beads including garnet, aventurine, and tiger's eye. (Each of the stones have their own mythos attached to them, and I put them together based on the "meanings" of them to go along with Mom's current situation.)

I've also been helping Mom out with setting up her new office. She's trying for her own business again, and has an office where she does Reiki, Dream work, and Spiritual Direction in a little health food store in town. I've been shopping for chairs and trying to recreate her old business cards, and so forth, and that's been fun as well.

I'm saying "yes" a lot more to fun things, like going up to Lake Tahoe overnight with otterprincess and banshree a couple of weeks ago, and going to the Farmer's Market with banshree and going shopping with various people. I guess I'm just enjoying life.

It's odd. I have no current plans, and no desire to make them really. I am really feeling a contentment that is so strange.

So, all in all, things are good here and I'm trying to enjoy it while it lasts. Carpe that old diem, and so forth, you know?

I'm still alive and kicking: if I don't update often, it's probably because I'm out finding shiny rocks to stick wires on or something.
