i love october
best weather, light, smells,
new notebooks

I haven't turned into one...yet.
My intentions and efforts to step-it-up with more time on the elliptical is being successful. I'm getting more activity time. And a higher step count.
I'm still not hitting 10k a day though. Room to improve!

After being stuck at 167 for a very long time
I'm down to 163.6 (call in 164) today
Today I got a charm at my WW meeting to ad to my keychain
I was celebrated
And it felt good.
It feels good.
"Celebrate the successes"
"Give the successes more energy than the failures"
(Lord knows I kick when things AREN"T going well...."

HOORAY for downward scale motion
HOORAY for feeling little body changes


Even though there is so much stress going on now. Uprooting again.
Why why why
Why am i having to go through this packing and moving and not being settled
over and over again???

A spiritual path.
A broken record.
Learning something... I hope.

Living in california has changed Summer for me... as it is summery year round in so many ways. Today I'm so happy that OCTOBER is October everywhere.
Unfortunately I am once again spending my October looking for rental housing.
Yes... I own a condo in Chicago = but I'm living in California...with Joe. The economy here is crazy. Not as bad as Manhattan... but same issues. So many applicants for same units.
Something happens to me when I LOOK at places.
I love architecture.
I love design.
I love housewares.
I just get lost in the looking.
I can't afford to live HERE the way I'd like to and can elsewhere.
**We just got SO lucky the first two houses were "special" situations.
I feel like Dorothy looking at the wizards bag... wondering what he may have left in it for me?????

Joe thinks there's another one to be had.
I'm lost in the details. With the devil.

There's no place like home......

And Wherever You Go, There you Are

    Finding the right rental here in California really is like looking for the proverbial needle in the haystack. Wishing you a happy miracle!
