I had a pretty good day today. I wrote emails, posted onf facebook looking for a financial advisor, wrote cheques to my beloved employees, threw out some old junk from the bathroom, and treated Motria to a birthday dinner.
She and Sarah and I went to Hair of the Dog. Motria talked about her friend Karen getting a double lung transplant, which is fantastic. Sarah talked about seeing her family in Ottawa and how her dog Oyster grabbed a raw steak and zoomed across the field with it in her mouth. Hilarious!
I mostly talked about my bad break up with ODSP. Honestly, it's like trying to leave an abusive relationship! I thought that a letter would be enough, but now they want me to give them proof that I haven't had any other source of income in the past year.
It was so hot on the patio of the restaurant and we decided to go to Baskin & Robbins for dessert. There were no seats so we wandered around. I kept fantasizing about renting a store front or buying a condo, but I don't know what I'm going to do with my inheritance.
Simone has given me good ideas and it has made me feel a bit calmer. I should try to make my business and art into something really fantastic. Plus I should just sit back and enjoy my life for once.
On this very hot day, I think my mind has finally cooled down.
