I haven’t written much lately… I’ve either been running my tail off or doing nothing… I spent all day Tuesday running Julie around town, Weaverville and all… have spent a lot of time trying to find an apartment for my Cindie to rent when she moves here, I’m so excited about that.


I have finally ordered the Serenity, I hope it gets here soon.  It was shipped on the 11th.


I have had to start fighting with Newport News and their bank, they seem to think I’ve ordered $1300+ of merchandise from them and had it shipped to me.  Well, if Glitter ordered it, she’s lying to me, and Newport News says it was shipped to my address… I know for a fact it never got here… I should owe them around $250-300 max.


Going to do Esbat Monday night, then stay up all night and go to Morganton on Tuesday morning to do some Pagan Prison Ministry work.  I have to be in Morganton by 8:30, no way can I get any sleep and still get up in time for that.


Sitting here listening to Flight of the Cosmic Hippo by Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, LOL.


I looked at a really nice apartment for Cindie today.  I don’t know if it will be available long enough, but it was nice and was in a really good neighborhood.  They will have a larger one available soon, but it will cost more money…


haven’t heard from any of my exes for a while, except for Laura, and she has long since moved from the category of “ex” to that of “best friend”.  Got some good jokes from Laura and from Auntie Branwen in my email.  They keep me giggling.


Cindie is wonderful… sometimes I get worrying, but I’m sure everything will work out just fine.  I wish she were here though…


I slept through my appointment with Shaun yesterday.  He called me afterward and rescheduled for the 26th.  That will be after my trip to KY.  I’m getting excited, only one week until my trip.  Who am I kidding, I’ve been excited for over a week already?!?!?!


I just remembered to set my alarm so I can go to my NAMI CARE meeting tonight with Chim.  I hate missing meetings, and probably would have forgotten it if I hadn’t just set my watch, unless Chim had called me.


I just wandered through the pagan chatrooms on Yahoo, didn’t see much worth commenting on, so I came here.


Guess that’s all I have to say to myself for now.  Please leave comments if you read this.  Hugs to you and me,


>:D<

Had an exciting day today…


Picked up Julie and took her to work, paid her cable bill, put gas in the car.


I took the car to the shop to check out unusual wear on the left front tire… almost $500 later, I have new front brakes, new tires, several other things fixed, and need to find another $120 to do the front end alignment… and will still need more for some other repairs.  I still got a great deal on the car, everything is just normal wear and tear.  The mechanics were drooling over the car and the shape it was in, one offered me a not inconsiderate sum of money for it.


Picked Julie up from work.


Came home, talked to Cindie on the computer.  Ironed out a minor misunderstanding.  We’re going to be sooooooo happy.


My Dad sent me a picture of him holding my granddaughter, Camilah Darlene Bailey, 18 months old.  She looks like a real sweetie.  I sent copies to Sapphire and Auntie Branwen.


John called, and we went to dinner at Huddle House.  I had 2 eggs scrambled, hash browns with chili, and biscuits with sausage gravy, with Diet Pepsi.  Sounds yummy, doesn’t it?


Came home and caught up on my Pagan Prison Ministry stuff.  I finally got the Pen Pals document in a form I can use.  My copy of Office didn’t come too terribly integrated, can’t convert Word to Excel or Access, can’t dump a comma-delimited file into either Excel or Access, yuck.  I may give StarOffice another shot…


Well, it’s getting later… good thing I’ve already seen tonight’s episode of Jerry, I’m not missing anything.


Talk to me later.  Huge hippo hugs!

Another exciting day.  Got my bills mailed.  That was it.  Haven’t talked to anyone today.  Lots of email, not much of earth-shaking importance, other than the fact that Dad finally got his computer back.


Hugs,
Me

Hi, me.


Well, I didn’t just stay in bed today.  At around 5:30 I went and picked up Alex and Ben and took them to Walmart.  I was just sitting there in the car, and just as they were about done, I had this bright idea — why don’t I got buy some cough drops?  I didn’t get any cough syrup, nothing appealed to me and it was all more than I wanted to pay.  Anyhow, we then went to Cici’s Pizza, where Ben bought us dinner.  Always good to get stuffed with cheese bread, salad and pizza a couple of times a month.


I talked to Cindie in Yahoo! Messenger for a while, wonderful as always, then settled down and paid my bills.  Most of them anyway, I still haven’t gotten 3 of my 4 CapitalOne bills.  And then John came over, as he does virtually every night, and now I’m back to blogging.  You must think I lead an exciting life!


If I’m reading my email right, CERES has agreed in principal to sponsor me to the workshop I need to get involved in the WARD Pagan Prisoner Ministry.  That will be good.  They seem to have a limitation on it that I don’t agree with, they seem to think that I was asking them to sponsor my ministry, not just the workshop.


Oh well, we’ll work it out.  I talked some to Dr. Vic today too, and we’re going to get some Wiccan credentials similar to the ULC ones, suitable for framing and using for legal stuph.


I guess that’s it for now.  Talk to me later.  Comments are welcome.

Hi, me.  Nothing happening today.  Just listening to music and coughing a lot.  The cold wouldn’t be so bad if it weren’t for that tickle in my throat that keeps me coughing.  Staying in bed.  Maybe I’ll make some tea.


Talk to me later.

Me again.


I just got back to visiting a large dam on the French Broad River with my students Sapphire Skye and MoonDolphin and their kids.  Lots of water over the dam, lots of power.  I’m kinda sick today with a growing cold, Sapphire ordered me back to bed.


Last night I went with my friend Chim to Unity and helped with Bingo Night.  Everyone seemed surprised that I had never done it before, I caught on quickly and did a good job.  I’ll be going back once a month with Chim.  We work together well.  It was good to see Chad, the minister there.  He’s a great guy.  We worked from 4 to after 8:30, and my hip was hurting pretty badly by the time I was done.  Next time I’ll have to remember to take my ibuprofen with me.  But it was a lot of fun.


Nothing on the agenda for the rest of the day.  Maybe I’ll hook up with Ben and find my way to Cici’s for pizza…


The Lexapro seems to be helping.  I’m taking double the dose the doctor suggested, I just don’t have any way to break those little pills… but that’s the dose I would be taking the second week anyhow.


I found a place called the Temple of Wicca that does legit, certificated ordinations and D.D.s of Wicca, similar to ULC but for Wicca, not just generic religion.  Sounds promising.  Thanks, Vic.


Guess I’ll knock off for now.  I’m getting a lot of readers here; please feel free to leave comments, I’d love to know who is reading my blog.

Hi, me!  It’s me again!


I’ve been really insecure about Cindie, and there’s absolutely no reason to be.  She is totally in love with me, and I just am blowing it with the insecurity thing.  Part of it is that I’m going through a medication change again, part of it is that she left early last visit due to a bad back and she’s paying the bill left by previous visitors.  I gotta get over it.


I just spent the morning taking Priscilla around to pay her bills.  She is a really nice lady who has been having some health problems lately, I’ve visited her in the hospital as much as I have in her home in the past year.  It was good to see her again — and she expressed concern over Julie’s health, not her own, which shows what kind of person she is.


I went to my NAMI CARE meeting last night and had a good time.  Chim runs a good group, even if there’s only a few people.  We had a new person there.  I talked about my problems, insecurities, new medications, etc., and listened attentively to the others in the group, hopefully helped a bit.


Payday is tomorrow or Monday, I have to catch up on a couple of bills and send off for the Serenity.  I hope I’m not placing too much expectation on how it is going to work, but it would be terrific if it did for me what the Manitou Springs spring water did.


Well, my day is still ahead of me.  I’m up rather early, for me, and might have some more things to say later.  Hugs and blessings to all reading this.


Talk to me later!

I just don’t talk to myself enough.  Gee, I wonder if I could convice my therapist of that? LOL


Well, I saw the doctor today.  She wouldn’t listen to the Serenity information, just not something she was equipped to hear.  She is taking me off Effexor, though, and starting me on Lexapro.  I hate to be non-compliant, but if the Lexapro doesn’t work, that’s what I’m going to have to be.


Five more days and my honey will be back here for Round Two.  I hope I can get the place a bit cleaner before she gets here, I didn’t know that she thought it was a wreck until we talked last night.  Cindie is really worried about not being able to take care of me if her back goes out on her, and it’s not fair that she should have to.  I can do it myself.  Same for cooking, she seems to think that I’m incapable of doing so, and it’s just not true.  OK, so part of the problem is that she’s used to having to DO everything for her men, and feels she is not worth much unless she is doing that.  But I should have done more to make my place livable so she wouldn’t have had to feel so much that way. 


I got the music finished for “Columbia”, and sent it off to Lee Gold at Xenofilkia.  Had to write it up in two different programs, one did a good job of placing the chords and another the lyrics… hope I can get the money to register one or the other, and get rid of the shareware crippling features.  It’s not my best tune, especially the verse, because I had to keep ducking the tune of “Memorial” by Anne Harlan Prather, which was going through my head the whole time I was writing it.  But it’s done.


My fish, Byte, is doing swimmingly.  I’ve had him for almost 3 years now, I have no idea how long I can expect him to live.  He’s a betta.  He is very attentive, although he does not like to be petted.  I do a fair job of taking care of him, and he does an excellent job of staying alive, even when I go away for a long weekend.


CERES meeting tonight.  Have to print out the Minutes of the last meeting.  We’re doing pretty well, and I’m very glad to be a part of it.  NAMI CARE tomorrow night, it will be good to see Chim again.


I guess that’s it for now, talk to me later.
