Survival of the....out of shape?

I know, I know.
I should get fit.

Life is strange right now.
I'm so happy and yet so worried about some things.
I think I expected True Love to save me--
from everything else in life.
But...ya know...ahem...SURPRISE SURPRISE, dumbass--it hasn't!
Well. Yeah.
I guess I shoulda known better.
Finding a soul mate has been the end of a life long quest, and now I find myself casting about for a purpose.
Ya know?

Plus, he is mightily distracted right at the mo.
And I like his Adult A.D.D. to be all focused on me.
All 23 of his simultaneous trains of thought should be dominated by yours truly.
That is what makes me smile.
That is what makes my world turn.
I don't know.

Maybe I'm just losing my need to have my whole world filled with him, ya know? a healthy way.
But it also sort of makes me uneasy, because I like how it feels to be all wrapped up in each other...

I have too many thoughts to churn through and this isn't the place.

But life is good.

Books have ruled my summer.

"The Hunger Games" and "Catching Fire" by Suzanne Collins
All sorts of books by Christopher Moore--"A Dirty Job," "Practical Demonkeeping," "Bloodsucking Fiends," "You Suck,"
"The Passage" by Justin Cronin
"Until I Find You," by John Irving - love him!
Aaaaand....I think there were others, but I can't think of them right now!
I finally got a library card at my historic and beautiful little town library, so maybe I can stop spending so much money on books!!
But don't count on it.

Also, I met a woman who runs literary workshops and I am going to sign up to have her light fires under my butt. Cuz, goodness! I should be writing.


Life rolls on, life is ever-changing, life is always the same.

peace out

Yes: you should be writing!

I am reading and loving The Brief, Wonderous Life of Oscar Wao by Junot Diaz. It reminds me in some ways of Caramelo by Sandra Cisneros (also a great great read, if you haven't gotten to it yet). Put it on your list.
