Monday is the “beginning” of the week. My favorites are Friday, Saturday and Sunday. But I can’t stop the other days from happening, and appointments get made. I can’t convince the whole world to change course. So Monday, hello. I don’t usually book stuff on Mondays. I like to keep Monday’s quiet so I can start the whole week of with ease. Yeah, most people say start Monday off with a bang. Start the exercise, make plans….I’m pooped just thinking about it.
I had to wake up early to take our sweet little dog to the vet for a teeth cleaning. Now before you say, oh that? That’s nothing. It is something. She’s older. She has to be put under the sleep juice. I’m told she is having teeth removed, along with blood, an EKG, urgh. She is super small dog - 6lbs of pure gold. She’s smaller than the cats! We love our vet. She assures me this is very common with small dogs. Their teeth get a little looser and rot out when they get older. She’s an older broad with a very young spirit. Like me. I’ve got friends who say if I was a dog, they picture I would look like Ruby. Ruby is tough when she needs or wants to be...but the sweetest gentlest dog on the planet...with some anxiety issues. Sound familiar? (well it would to those of you who read the first book, Mental Girl or know me)
Oh no pressure about getting to know me or read my book. Dammit! I’m over worrying.
Deep breath. Mental Girl!
Okay….so she’s at the vet now. I’m nervous and worried and wait for the the call she is doing OK and ready for pick her up.
In the meantime I booked my first Pranic Healing session. When I booked it I was very excited. I actually still am. I’m just nervous about my focus, the timing, and…..oh dammit! I just wish I could have booked this tomorrow. Tuesday. I like starting the bookings, the meetings, the appointments, and the get togethers after Monday.
Mental Girl says….hold up! You didn’t. And that’s ok. The teeth cleaning had to be done, and I needed Ruby’s vet to be there. It will be uncomfortable, but I am doing the right thing by Ruby to take care of her. Oh...did I mention the bill is going to EXPENSIVE? Urgh. Note to people who adopted small dogs: clean their teeth! Bruth them now! Dental work for dogs is pricey!
Mental Girl says breathe. Let’s Pranic!
So back to the Pranic Healing. I’m nervous. I don’t know what’s ahead. I’ve never done this. What if I’m numb to it? What if it doesn’t work on me? What if it doesn’t work with Ursula? What if…..
Mental Girl just stepped in again. Adventures are just that...you don’t know, you don’t plan, you can’t see it all...but you give it a try. That’s it. I’m giving it a try.
The rest of my day is filled with Mom duties, wife duties, house duties, and pet duties...life duties. I guess when I really see it through Mental Girl’s eyes...it really is all an adventure. Everyone is feeling the adventure. Everyone (unless you are an asshole) is just trying to put on their best selves and fucking do this thing called life. And that’s me. Okay….deep breath inserted. Let’s do this.
