Peaceful, Easy Feeling

Yesterday was a good day, something I've not had in a while. Unfortunately, when I have good days, I tend to overdo it and pay for it the next day, which I am now doing.

The support group meeting went well, and it made me feel good that I actually had some good news to report about my disability approval and the gentleman from the state agriculture department helping me get my nursery license. Others in the group said that it made them feel better that I had good news to share, which lifted my mood. I also had a pleasant chat with the manager of the place, and her husband, and both of them were very supportive and agreed that I was long overdue for some good news. That not only validated my feelings that the past couple of years have been very hard - which I think boosted my mood more than anything - it also made me feel good that I didn't come in with more problems, like I usually do. I'm hoping this is a turning point. It seems in my life that bad things come in bunches, and good things come in bunches, and I'm hoping it continues at least for a while. I'm sick of complaining, so I'm certainly feeling better sharing positive things than holding in my setbacks and struggles, which I tend to do. We'll see how things go from here.

I've just about decided my cats are psychic, because as soon as I started thinking of having the males fixed, they've all started disappearing for a day or two here and there so I can't get the three males I have left at the same time. I really think they're wandering, because tomcats will do that looking for mates. I'm just hoping that they come back so that I can get them done together, as I don't want to shuttle one of them at a time back and forth to the vet..... Maybe when cold weather gets here, they'll stick closer to home.

I did sort of have an OCD thing last night - I got to looking up kits to convert my old camaro to power steering, and they were all so expensive. I got on an auto parts chain store's website and was able to order everything I needed except one bracket, which I found on ebay and purchased. I was also able to throw in a power brake booster to convert it to power brakes as well - and still came out spending less than half the price of the power steering kits I'd found online, and ended up with a better steering box than was included in any of the kits. My camaro is a 68 model, and I want to do some mechanical work on it and get the interior finished before I get it painted, so that there will be less risk of scratching a new paint job. I know my luck, or lack thereof, and I'm planning around it. I also know that it's going to take me a while, like everything does, or else I'll end up with fibro flareups. Like the one I'm having today from staying up too late online looking up parts.......

I still need to get lots of plants situated in the greenhouse, but haven't made it yet. I was thinking I'd have more room this year with the new tables I've built, and I have, but somehow I always seem to end up with more plants than room. It's going to be like packing a suitcase, I'm afraid.....

Take care,

Yipee, for good stuff happening! It sounds like the positive vibes are spiraling out to other people, too.

The car refurbishing sounds very complicated to me--it takes a special mind set to deal with such mystical machinery (that's how it seems from my perspective). I used to drive a Comaro

Z28 in the late 70's--it was pretty spiffy & fun to drive.

...like packing a suitcase,eh (I know that feeling)... :roll2:

Congrats on your good day--may they keep rolling in for you!

(Those naughty tom cats--I bet you're right--they will be home for warmth and food!)

Happy days,

Aerial

It's funny you mentioned the Z-28, as the only used part I had to buy, found on ebay, was a bracket taken from a late 70's/early 80's Z-28. And it's only magic if everything fits and works the first time, LOL! But I researched the parts interchanges so I could upgrade to a newer model, fast ratio steering box from the late eighties IROC-Z camaros that should work and make my old 68 much more fun to drive.

And yeah, imagine packing a suitcase the size of the bed of a full size pickup with live plants carefully so they won't slide around or get damaged......

(((((Chii)))))

Yeah, I think I had too good of a day. I'm paying for it.... Had to turn the heat on, and I always get a headache when it's first turned on, and get headaches from the dry indoor air this time of year..... Gotta go take something, and open some windows.....

Take care,

Dewayne
