Eat Pray Breathe
What a lovely day this turned out to be. I did manage to keep myself in the game and not let my anxiety overtake me. Everything is not a crisis and I do not have to react like it is. I met with the contractor and he was on time. I liked him immediately and he answered my questions and didn't add to my worries. I won't see the bid until sometime next week and I continue to be hopeful that we can come to an agreement on the financials. I left our meeting feeling like a weight had been lifted. I also came to some answers on some other issues that had been bothering me about scheduling, where and how to put up the family while the work is being done. It's not like I thought up these answers - it was more like I finally got quiet enough to hear them - if that makes sense.
I was able to get a couple of errands done on my way home from the meeting - got MalibuKen's tires rotated and gave him a bath. My plan was to come home and go for a bike ride, but because of the aforementioned car wash, the sky darkened and it looked like rain. I had the brilliant thought of heading to the dinner and a movie place and Eat Pray Love was starting in ten minutes. I walked over, bought a ticket, ordered soup and a salad and spent a small, quiet and relaxing evening watching the movie, breathing and smiling (with my liver). I came out of the movie to find that it had been raining, so I made the perfect call.
Take good care of yourself. Be kind to others. Get still.
