It’s been awhile, huh? I wish I could say I have been doing something terribly exciting, but the truth is I’ve just been living life. However, the good news the fortune teller promised me between April 15th and April 20th has not yet materialized, and here it is one hour into the 20th. I’ll let you know in twenty-three hours if anything wonderful has happened. I actually received some not-so-good news on the 15th, about which I’m not inclined to discuss because I’m still in the midst of dealing with it.
While I wait for the other shoe to drop (which promises to be weeks away, unfortunately), I’ve been engaging in my favorite kinds of therapy—retail therapy, drinking therapy, eating therapy, baking therapy, physical therapy and—today—gardening therapy. Gardening is damn hard work but in a couple of months I’m going to have enough tomatoes, cucumbers and peppers to feed a small island nation. There are worse ways to spend my time than playing in the dirt.
My birthday is fast approaching and so far I have not been inspired to turn it into the national holiday I have in the past. Perhaps this is my year to do it low-key, hmm? We’ll have to wait and see.
