Slow down world…
Today, I am packing and prepping to head out to Sherwood Forest Faire for the weekend. I’m working there again this season. Sherwood is similar to a Renaissance Festival, but set in a different time period. I’ll once again be working in the kitchen of the Italian restaurant…behind the scenes, but still involved with plenty of time for wandering around and taking in the sights. People watching is one of my favorite activities.
I’m only slightly anxious about leaving for the weekend. I can feel it building, but I think that I’m dealing with it fairly well. Maybe the new meds are helping?
Looking back is not always a bad thing (as long as you don’t live there). I can remember a time not so many years ago, when going away for the weekend would have been almost impossible. I certainly wouldn’t have been able to drive myself an hour and a half away. In fact, there was a time when going to the grocery store was a serious challenge.
It’s good to remember those times and to realize that progress and improvement is possible. Things can get better. Maybe never completely resolved, but better.
Sorry for the hurried post, but I still have a long ways to go to be organized like I once was.
The dryer load is finishing up with the clothes I need for the weekend.
My art class materials still need to be gathered up.
The car needs to be emptied of things that will be needed here this weekend.
I need to double-check that I remembered everything.
And then triple-check!
I need to take a deep breath and relax.
All shall be well.
And life is good!
