snapshots of an idle mind

oh my oh my oh my

so my father and i are off on a road trip to virginia this weekend for to pick up my cadillac (trapeze table) and i’m really freaking excited about it.

not only do i get to stop doing matwork on the floor but i also receive, for the same low price, all the great exercises you can do on a cadillac that you can’t do on a reformer.

i desperately need to stop doing matwork on the floor because it’s wreaking havoc on my already weak and sensitive back. i get these awful little pains beside the vertebra of my spine which are the ligaments seizing up in protest.

you can imagine that this doesn’t feel very good.

in fact my teacher described my spinal ligaments as being ‘on lsd’ which was pretty cute coming from her.

i’m still completely stunned that little old me is about to get a cadillac. that means i only need to spend another fifteen hundred bucks to get a chair and i am fully outfitted!

the chair can wait but i do want one…

wow, i’m the little business that could!

not to mention?

oh yeah baby, for the first month EVER since i started this job? i will have my rent paid before the tenth of the month. that bodes well for getting a little ahead and that?

that implies the occasional sigh of relief!



i gave notice for my sunday class (which i LOVE by the way) because i cannot bear to work another winter’s worth of sundays and i already sub out most of the summer.

you guys!!! i’m going to have sundays off!

actual, real life, SUNDAYS OFF!!!!!

*dance of joy*

*clears throat*

you have no idea how much i’ll miss the ladies though…

anyway, it seems like finally all the little seeds are growing and i really, really hope that they continue.

this is in fact the weirdest summer ever. usually by now i’m dead and praying for october and this summer? i’m working about six or eight hours more per week than i was two months ago!

and good clients too, the kind that stay!

i guess it’s true that changing my space changed my luck because i’ve done nothing but see positive results since then.

it’s funny that i have the kind of life where i’m still wondering okay, where’s the other shoe? i mean it can’t just be finally paying off can it? isn’t there some other bullshit traumatic hurdle ahead?

except, even if there is, assuming it isn’t really massive i can deal. i know this because i *have* dealt for years now. years on end.

there’s something very comforting in that.

oh my oh my oh my i’m getting a trapeze table!!!

AND a road trip with my dad!



  1. I understand only about thirty percent of this post, however, I can feel the positive energy coming off of the page. It’s wonderful when you can do something you love and it pays the bills, too.

    Keep envisioning positive things!

    And if you drive by my neck o’ the woods on your way to VA (which you very well might), pehaps some of that happy positive vibe will stick around for me!

    Yay, you!

  4. pirate: i got in a car accident and somehow it changed my life in a positive way. it’s hard not to look for the silver lining in everything after that.

    but dude, i am extra super happy right now because for the first time ever i’ve had a job for more than two years and i still love it and i’m still passionate about it. it’s just unheard of!

    i will send vibes to um… where?

    nat: note to self, get batteries for camera.

    see the picture in the link? it’s that only mint green.

    terry: thanks, i did too while i wrote it.

    and yeah, my life is awesome… heck i even fancy someone!

    i’ll try to remember the pics!

  5. Well, if the Fast Ferry hadn’t gone belly-up, it might have been a shortcut for you.

    How’s that for a clue?

    But, you’ll prolly just head straight south from Buffalo. And that’s close enough.

    Still, if you do make it this far, I’ve got a copy of Butch Cassidy I could lend ya.
