I’ve really been fighting the desire for retail therapy, lately. I’m not sure what is provoking this desire in me…Spring, being tired, stress, changes…but the desire has been really strong, making walking through almost any store a test of will. Yesterday, I gave in a little bit.
Costco has a bunch of garden stuff out. Over the years, I have always perused their selection of plants, bulbs, garden mixes with a bit of desire. Funding has always been so limited that I never felt like I could afford to indulge myself, despite the great pricing. I could not resist yesterday.
Of course, I can already picture the flowers all arranged and in bloom. I can’t plant any of these until at least mid April, which will be torture to wait for, and then wait again for the growing to begin. By mid-Summer,though, beauty. I can hardly wait!!!
At this point, I have the next three days off. I am hoping nothing comes to fill them. The very idea of having three days off in a row is almost as exciting to me as waiting for Christmas morning as a little kid. Every ounce of my being wants it, and I have to admit that there will be at least an internal temper tantrum if any of those days get taken away. I don’t think I should be feeling quite like that about days off, which tells me I am probably over doing it. There doesn’t really seem to be much of a choice in it, though, at this point. Adding the beauty of flowers and herbs to my world will at least give me that relief from the ho-hum of working all of the time.
On the topic of work, I have to say that I am at the point where I would just quit if I could. I hate my job. I really need to get on figuring out how I quit cleaning and do something more in line with my bliss. Have I mentioned there are some online course I want to take? One of the courses is ‘Certificate in Meditation.’ Its only $100 but I am a bit unsure of enrolling in the course because I am not sure I am going to have the energy or time to give to the curriculum.
There are also two ‘Certificate in Holistic and Integrative Health’ courses that I would like to take. The first one costs $350, though. I’m not sure I can justify the expenditure right now or when I would be able to. Of course, the whole time and energy thing applies here, as well. Maybe Lance’s yurt building will really take off and I will be able to do these things. I hope.
Anyway, I should probably get my toosh in gear and get to work so I can get this clean done and move on to the days off part. Have a great day, everyone!!!
