I didn’t do a whole lot today- I didn’t have a lot of time for practicing, unfortunately, but I was not about to break my current everyday streak. Even a little will do.
Kiddo #1 has been home sick today, so I had to work from home, which always ends up to be longer hours than a regular office day for some reason… the apartment was in some desperate need for a bit of attention… then the kiddo may or may not have broken her toe on the vacuum cleaner… I had to crochet a sloth for a friend… and then… ta-daaaaaaa… the ex hubby came by and pulled a really nice one on me:
AWESOME! Isn’t it? I absolutely love it… not just because it looks absolutely fabulous in terms of decoration, but also because it’s yet another piece of ME, MYSELF, and I that I am adding to what is now my apartment, adding character to it that reflects me, doing what my therapist calls “reclaiming space”. And boy, does that feel ever so great. (Very grateful to the ex hubby though, seriously. He didn’t need to do that, but did it anyway, which earns him a ton of props.)
(And please ignore the sad looking plants in the corner… they were just spending the winter there and are scheduled to move back outside onto my terrace as soon as the weather allows. They don’t much like the winter inside, especially the oleander, and it shows.)
Does it make you nervous, too? Seeing your guitars hang on a small little thing like these wall mounts and trusting those little T-Rex arms to keep your babies safe? I was worried about my beloved bass in particular… because it’s really heavy. I know that wall mounts are technically safe… and I’ve seen the kind of screws that were used to put them onto the wall… but… still. It does make me a bit nervous. I will get used to it. Most importantly: the visual is amazing. But I think I mentioned that already.
