I've been enjoying my essential oil necklace that Katy gave me for Christmas. I get whiffs during the day and it's nice. Yesterday I wore "calm".
One goes through a lot it seems to try and remain calm amidst the confusion and chaos in one's day. And I had to laugh at "There's no place like....OHM!" lol Often I listen to zen and calming music, including ocean waves, and birds. I just need some large bamboo to place around and then I'll have it made.
I've had to escape for a bit here and there to remain sane at times in this life and one escape is to go find some "hot chicken". So if you get the nerve to get out and can be ready to duck to avoid the bullets flying around, you can find some really good chicken in Nashville. Not all places are bullet ready, but some are. I know where I was yesterday, I don't really like to be. Matter of fact, someone was shot down the road from where I was about an hour after I was there. But whatever, that's a whole 'nother story. Sometimes your appetite will make you risk your life. So I got out and went to KFC. I found a parking lot where it doesn't seem like you disturb any drug deals, and enjoyed my chicken, then went into Walgreens and got a sympathy card that was needed. And I'm like "I need to get out of here before I'm shot or get the flu". So I didn't shop around for anything but got my sympathy card and left.
I noticed a guy across the street park in back of the service station, and he was in and out of his trunk several times. This neighborhood scares me.
Anyway, the chicken was good. I risked my life. I survived to tell about it. lol Again, ain't "no place like OHM (home). lol
Katy's experience yesterday at a drive thru was interesting...she went somewhere and placed her order and drove up to pay and the guy goes "Oh get out of my window!" in a pleasant but surprised tone. Katy said she was surprised and wondered where he was going with that, and he quickly followed up how beautiful she was and her eyes were so pretty. lol Unique experiences for sure. But "Oh get out of my window????" lol lol
I met Katy last night for our pedicure. We got the $55 dollar one. It was a very long massaging leg experience with scrubs and oils and hot rocks and parafins and lotions. It was wonderful. And lasted about an hour and a half. We put on our cheapy flip flops they gave us and headed to Cheddar's. Well, going to our table, my cheapy flip flops broke. But my shoes were in my purse. I wore my shoes out of the place, but my toe nail polish was all messed up so I had to take the polish off and completely redo them when I got home. Then I had to sleep with my feet out of the covers all night. Until about 2 in the morning. At that point I thought if they are not dry then they never will be. Oh well. It was mainly the other part that we liked the most - the color was no biggie. Next time I need to bring my own flip flops. But it was sortof impromptu that we went yesterday as we were supposed to go today. I need to get my nails done today (finger nails) but I think I'll pass and get it done tomorrow.
Sleep was good last night. Only too short. And I better get ready and go. But at least I got enough sleep I think. I can tell b/c if I get up wanting things to be clean and make an effort to clean my way through getting ready - I've slept enough. But if I wake up and look at things that are not where they need to be and just go "ughhh and grr" and don't want to fool with it - I've not gotten enough sleep. That fact always amuses me. So I always say to myself as I take last night's wash rag to the dirty clothes, and put last night's water glass in the dishwasher, "well I got enough sleep I guess".
Then usually the whole day follows suit as long as I have my caffeine. And speaking of that, I need to go get some more, get some make up and get to work. Again, "Ain't no place like, OHM/HOME".
