It's my birthday today and I'm going to the pool to sit in the hot tub and get away from the friggin' noise around here. Jim gave me a reckoning this morning. There's a lot still to do and the $$ has dribbled away. What to do now? I talked with my bookkeeper and she said to hang tight. Ok, and then hold up a bank.

However the plumber is here (in her Mercedes but who's noticing that?) and her helper who has a bit of 'chaw' in his mouth. Blech.

Remind me. Never ever do this again. Never. Again.

Meanwhile, I gotta figure out the kitchen because it is not good. As in ynet. Nada. Dreck. Ptooey. Etc. Right now I need a fairy godmother to leave a large bag of cash on my doorstep. And I'll keep the faith that when I need the dough, it will somehow magically appear.

Anxiety is so unpleasant. You'd think I'd be used to it by now. My lifelong friend, mental hand-wringing.

I would like a cocktail and a nice dinner tonight. I just might take myself out for that. And my sangha is tonight so maybe I'll take a cake and celebrate. My party is Saturday with my friends.

Ok, off to the pool for a lackadaisical swim and a hot tub with the folks.

Oh, Beth! How I wish I could make you a cake, not to mention a cocktail!
Anxiety is the worst and may the cash somehow, yes, magically appear. The birthday fairy, perhaps?
Sending much love from Lloyd to you on this anniversary of your birth.
I am so glad you were born.

I'll picture you sitting in a giant hot tub full of money :)

Have a happy birthday, stress notwithstanding xx

Happy birthday, beautiful Beth. I'm sorry for your home and house troubles. May they be resolved. May you be well. I'm sending you virtual kisses and hugs. And my present to you is this blog post by a friend -- I thought about you as I read it:
