Embrace the Chaos

It’s June 3rd and already the boxes are piling up everywhere. The obstacle course of moving is in full swing. There’s a big bright light at the end of this chaos so I think that’s what is making it a little more bearable.

This morning I decided to do round two of the henna hair color. This time I did it myself. Negative Nancy was very helpful and generous with her time during round one but let’s be real….it’s a one woman job. It made a huge difference doing it myself! It took her over an hour to apply it to my hair and while I understand she was trying to be thorough…it was too much. It kept drying because it was taking so long and I had to reheat it and because it was drying it crumbled when she applied more to my hair. It was a big mess!  It took me between five and ten minutes to apply it myself and it wasn’t nearly as messy AND I didn’t feel the need to saran wrap my hair. My advice to first time henna users? Don’t be afraid, you can totally do this yourself.

Speaking of Negative Nancy she was out of control Friday with her negativity! I started carrying a black tourmaline crystal in my scrub pocket mid May. In case you didn’t notice May was pretty intense with the “feels” and I just needed a little help. This happened Friday…..

I kept looking at Force of Nature Girl and saying “I can’t even…I really think I’m going to throw up.” I hate that I am that sensitive but it’s who I am I guess. When I came home and emptied my pockets I was floored. The stone broke in half! This is a new one on me.

Yesterday a small group of us went on a road trip to the town where Force of Nature Girl’s parents live. There was a big town garage sale and it sounded like fun. It was a dud. My best purchase was from our first stop. They had $5.00 each on these and while I wanted them very much, I didn’t want to pay $10.00 for them. I am not a haggler so I gave my money to Force of Nature Girl and she got both of them for $5.00 for me.

While we were there I got to meet this sweet girl and wow can she squeal and in a loud pitch that my ears have never heard before. She was cute until she needed to be picked up and placed in the kennel.

We also drove past a creepy house where a serial killer used to live and commit horrible crimes.

The town library was having a book sale so we stopped in and I picked up this little gem from the early 70’s.

It was somebody’s book from a college course and it is full of notes but hey it was only $1.00. There was another blast from the past in the library as well. When is the last time you saw one of these?

That was my day yesterday. Today is the boring day of chores and more packing and purging. I only have a couple of places that I need to go to today but that won’t be until later this afternoon. The henna won’t be ready to wash out until after 1:30pm. Fingers crossed that it is a little less red this time…..Zia

    Just reading this post made me tired. Wow! If I did all you did I would be exhausted. As for the henna I applaud you because that can be very very tricky. I rely on a hairdresser to do my hair. Good luck with the move. Just moving by itself is a lot of stress so how you managed to fit in everything else is totally beyond me. I applaud you for that as well! And being around negative people is a big energy drainer. I have learned and am still learning in fact how to shield myself. It is not easy especially being as sensitive as I am. Big hugs on that one! May you have a wonderful day today! 🌹

      Amy you are too sweet! I believe that you can do everything I do and take beautiful photos along the way.😊 Negativity is a tricky one, especially with this woman. Her cousin brought in a picture of her when she was about 8 yrs old looking pissed at the world while everyone else was swimming and having fun. I believe she was born miserable and I find that very sad. It doesn’t excuse her behavior but might explain why it’s her super power. I need to find something stronger than sage to combat her energy….
