My Get up Go has Gone up and Went.

The husband has gone for a couple of days backpacking up near Mt Lassen. I don\’t enjoy hiking or backpacking when it is hot. Sure it\’s cooler the higher in elevation you go, I still prefer spring or fall or even winter hiking better. 

With him being gone, it\’s like a mini-vacation for me. I can get some things done around here; watch movies I like that he doesn\’t, eat what I want, cook if I want or order out. Sleep with the dog…Not that I can\’t do those things when he is here, but I get sidetracked and distracted when he is home. 
Yesterday I ordered a pizza and had it delivered. YUM. I finally got to watch, The Help. (Excellent movie) Talked to Foodie for 2 hours. Watched some you-tube DIY videos that \”inspired me\” but nothing else. One thing I find I like to do is watch other people work out or do crafts or organize their homes. I just sit and watch, and yes I get inspired but not enough to get off my butt and do it. I just sit there, thinking, I will save this video and do it later. Later rarely comes anymore. I want to, I just don\’t. My Get up Go has Gone up and Went.  So I\’ve become an observer. 
Observing is okay – You gain a lot by observing. 
When the husband is gone, I find myself talking to myself – Laydee thinks I am talking to her. I look over and she is looking at me, wagging her tail. Okay, Laydee, whatever you think. 

So today I plan to…maybe clean and organize my craft room which has become a mess since all this virus crap started. It\’s hard to be inspired when you can\’t find anything. 
My friend Anita, sent me an Audible gift book – by James Patterson. The Summer House. I should, go in and organize while listening to the book. I\’ll let you know tomorrow if that worked. 
Char just called and said the thrift store isn\’t opening just yet so the non-profit Community Service that provides employment for the disabled asked her if she wanted to work in housecleaning at the Comfort Inn. She snatched it up, right away. She has been bored out of her mind – sleeping till 1-2pm and basically waiting for her phone to ring so she could go back to work. It\’s been almost 4 months since she worked. She starts tomorrow at 7:15 am. It will be a rude awakening when she gets up at 5:30 am to get ready for work after sleeping till 1-2 pm almost every day. I\’m happy for her. She needs routine and is unable to do it on her own. 
Foodie talked for 2 hours about…his union, what\’s going on in the country, his work, still being single at almost age 40, backpacking, his vacation, and his neighbors. All in all, I guess he is happy. That\’s all I want for my kids – just to be happy. They don\’t have to live their lives according to what I think they should do – 
Well, I guess it\’s time for me to try and get going to do whatever it is, I should be doing or not doing.

    Good Char will get out and be able to work. It does get tiring waiting around wondering when if ever work will open up again. I always enjoyed when hubby went out of town for a few days. I enjoyed the remote to myself and being able to make my own schedule. Don't see that happening any time soon LOL. Hope you got your organizing of your craft room done!betty

    My two oldest sons are both in their early 40's and both single (one was married and divorced after two years). They are happy and so am I (the woman who said she would never marry). It is hard to get enthused about doing anything. It is so hot here. Two weeks now of 90's and more in sight. Stay cool.

    I know what you mean about being better inspired in a an organized space. I'm usually good at keeping things straight, but there come days when I have to \”fix it\” before starting anything new.
