This weekend I’m going to hang curtains, real curtains in an apartment for the first time, ever. Go me. <Laughs> Mostly, I want to reduce my heat bills this winter. I’ve always complained about my windows letting in cold air in winter, so this year, I’m going to try to do something about it. We shall see how it goes.

Looking forward to Mom visiting. Planning to take her to see Dr Strange. 🙂 And to the Friends of the Library Big Book Sale on Saturday at Main. Should be a fun weekend.

Finished listening to Academ’s Fury. Now, I’m listening to Off To Be The Wizard. It’s fun and silly. I’ll probably head to the next Butcher book next.

The elections are over. Wow. So many people are surprised, myself included. But it’s done, it’s over. Now we have work to do. Regardless of your opinion of the results, this country has some serious problems. And we have a lot of work ahead of us to solve them. We always have, but this election seems to have woken up a lot more people to that reality. Although, I’m pretty sure there are still a lot of Different ideas about what those problems are, as well as the solutions. So, get involved, work on the problems you see, take action. This isn’t about ‘getting over it.’ Don’t get over it, do something about it.

That is one of the things I love about my library. We work with the community, helping the children succeed in school, helping the teens get excited about music and computers and possibilities, helping adults find jobs and navigate government programs. Providing a safe place for all.

Shots in the dark are still waiting to land. Insurance reconsidered the bill, so they really do owe us money, so that’ll help pay other bills. Another friend considering hiring me for web design. And the gift of a blender from someone who found she did not need to keep hers. A decent week, all in all.

I’ve felt rather fidgety all week. The weather won’t make up its mind if it is spring or not yet. Yesterday, most of all. It went from 70 degrees and sunny, to windy and overcast with tornado watches, to pouring down rain, to hailing, back to 70 degrees and sunny and then down to freezing and snow. I feel like that, too. I’m on the verge of new beginnings, but I keep going backwards or round in circles, not quite ready to take that last, fully committed step into Spring. I still have the lethargy of winter hibernation tugging at me, whispering sweet dreams in my ears, if only I’d lay back down.

So much to do, so little time. I have to wake up now and get moving. Set deadlines, meet goals, create the life I want to live. All that stuff I keep talking about. Time to Do.

My life is incredible. I have wonderful friends. A great family. A loving husband. I have two jobs in a time when people are struggling to find work. I have a home, a car, and a fridge full of food. I have health, car, renter’s, and life insurance. I am relatively healthy and mentally stable.

Why isn’t that enough?

Because I’m human. Because I’m always striving for more. Because good enough never is. Because there are things that are not the way I would want them. Because there are things that I want that I do not have.

So what am I waiting for?

Leverage. When does it get to the point when I HAVE to make a change? When does standing still become too painful? What is it going to take for me to move forward?

I keep talking about taking action. Now I need to find the leverage and the motivation to stop talking and start doing. Wish me luck?
