I awoke early enough, but kept going back to sleep. I had a number of things that I wanted to do today, but forgot about doing them. I don’t actually know the next time that I’ll be able to get my oil changed on my car. I’m a little concerned about that because I’m already 400 miles past due. I spent the morning catching up on my blog which was quite behind. I had written about each day, but simply hadn’t posted each on the blog. I also had to spend some time changing some names and details to keep myself anonymous.
At one point, I decided to take a nap. Before I slept, I asked God or the Universe, or whomever to give me an idea for a title for the book that I wanted to turn this into. The one I like best is Unearthing Happiness. I think when I get the money I’m going to buy a website for my blog. I also want to have a list of resources and some other things on there that the free wordpress format won’t allow me to do. I also started thinking about my pen name. I came up with a few ideas, but did not decide on anything yet.
I managed to get a few things done like wash dishes and cook dinner before leaving for Chandra’s. Chandra had spent her weekend helping out at the retreat center. She was going to be getting back sometime on Monday and so asked me to come over later in the day for the spiritual class. The class was about making proper choices. I actually came out and told her that I wasn’t ready to follow all the principles. I’m glad I was honest with her about it and she seemed surprisingly okay with the fact. I did not specify which principles I didn’t follow and I was grateful that she didn’t ask.
I helped her a little online and left so I would be home in time to get a full eight hours of sleep. However, when I got home, I found that I wasn’t quite ready yet, so I went online and spent entirely too long on facebook. There was a guy that I had met on the dating group that had started to chat with me, then disappeared. It seemed like each time I was about to go to bed he would reappear to chat. Finally, around 10:30, I gave up and just decided to go to bed anyway. It was weird. I didn’t necessarily like the guy that I was chatting with, it was more to have somebody to talk to at this point. Maybe it’s pathetic. And actually, it probably is pathetic, but it’s what I did.
