Tip of the Hat

(no subject)

I'm going to be a bit lazy and write this entry to catch up on things. I have been trying to call a friend on and off for the last couple of weeks and haven't been able to get through. I think my timing's off there.

I went to oil the motor in my furnace and the metal access panel was stuck and I ripped open a finger getting that panel off a few days ago. Which reminds me, I wanted to look up why peroxide bubbles on open cuts, but not closed skin. Well, I'm not going to take the time to do that trivia research now.

I had my limit with my parents Sunday night, and since then I have reduced contact to just doing what they need me to do and getting out of there the moment one of the other caregivers is there.

Tonight is the monthly swingdance. Shim Sham is what's planed for the opening lessons before open dancing. I'll prob. just show up for the open dancing, although I wouldn't mind trying to relearn the Shim Sham. I had some lessons on that step years ago, but other then remembering it is much more a tap dance step than a swing dance step I don't remember how to do it.

Hmm, what else? My mood is swinging more than a hypnotist's watch lately. I have got to start going back to my mental disapline exercises, and just be present no matter what. That does help. Being aware and still. Moving only when needed. Still the body and mind.

Ok, I know I'm starting to lose people here, and I shouldn't have taken this break in the first place. So back to mindfully taking care of my life.
