This weekend I got spring fever. I cleaned the kitchen cupboards and the basement. A van load went to the dump and another was donated to the Salvation Army.
It was a dirty and dusty job, but I love looking at things neatly put away. I admit, I am the messy one. So when things are no longer neat, I know who to blame.
Along the way I also taught 2 yoga classes, practiced yoga, got my hair cut, went to family fun day and watched a lot of playoff hockey and a UFC pay per view. And the game of thrones started again last night. 😊 It was a generally good weekend.
As I cleaned the basement I kept thinking – I never would have done this drinking. I would be watching hockey with a glass in my hand. Or, I would have started the job, gotten passed off that I had to do everything around here, and left a disaster in my wake as I drank away my resentments.
Yikes. Yes. That was me.
On Saturday night, as we lounged in bed at 10 pm watching ufc and eating chocolate, craig and I marvelled at how nice it is to be relaxing in the house, knowing the kids are safe in their rooms. Both of us sober and alert. No drama required. Just an enjoyment of life.
Sometimes I think it sounds boring, but it is actually perfect for me. I like contentment. My mind is at peace.
Stillness and peace.
