It's that time of year...the season is changing, the new school year is starting, the new television season is upon us...it's a time of change and welcoming new experiences. It's kind of like New Year's Day...starting over.
I am starting over, in my new official role as House Manager-Freelance Designer-Kittycat Masseuse. I received word that my long term disability will continue...no squabbles or questions asked...just periodic check-ins.
You may also be wondering what happened with BB. Let's just say that thanks to my recent medical trauma, I went out on my own terms...as I wanted. I'm at peace with this now...it was my decision, and I fully recognize* that I am not able to work.
I want to embrace my new role. I don't want to be a couch potato, or a bump in my bed. I have spent the past two years hanging around my house in sweat pants and old t-shirts. My other clothes are work clothes - dress pants and button down shirts. You may think this sounds superficial, but appropriate dress can make or break your attitiude, as well as your perception of yourself. Dress the part! On that note, I have found myself wanting a casual wardrobe. It's a bit like needing back to school clothes, or clothes for your new job.
Maybe I need to mandate a house uniform...
*at least this is how I feel today, and for most of this past week
