“When you are discontent, you always want more, more, more. Your desire can never be satisfied. But when you practice contentment, you can say to yourself, ‘Oh yes – I already have everything that I really need.'”
~~ Dalai Lama
So the game plan is that I go back to Kansas City on Wednesday so I can get back to work on Thursday. But I don’t want to leave!
It’s not that I don’t want to go back to work. It’s that I actually don’t want to leave Tiny Town and the house.
I feel good this week. Better than I have in months. Months and months.
It’s peaceful here. I get a little restless now and again so we go run an errand or two, but then I am fine with being back home. If we get the plumbing fixed (not there yet, maybe today) I will really be happy.
So I texted by (wonderful) boss to see if she would give me another day.
And she said yes!
*Happy Snoopy Dance!*
She said yes.
So I am staying another day.
Got writing to do today. And tacos with R’s aunt who I could write three or for Grateful Posts about. She is simply amazing and a kindred soul. She lives in California and visits her mom (R’s grandmother) once a year.
Yesterday I got a lot of editing done and planted more plants (we have them almost all in now) and napped a lot and watched a mind blowing movie (for the second time) called Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close (had to wait several years to do it again though).
Besides that I am just taking the day as it comes.
What a blessing!
