A Mixed Bag of Nuts Part II

Yesterday I went through all of my clothes - and purged!  It felt so good to get rid of old things that I never wear anymore.

The other day I bought new shoes and a new dress.

And that made me happy, too!

I'm about 75% happy and 25% sad.  I'm trying to focus on the positive things, like, celebrating my niece's birthday tomorrow at The Old Spaghetti Factory, and my birthday on Sunday.  Both things are going to be so much fun.

And  yet, I keep catching myself crying because I hear a song in my head that reminds me of my mom.  And I keep thinking about my good friend Aaron birthday, and the unfairness of his death.   And of course my sweet Rob who shared 21 birthdays with me.  Bloody hell!  Why do cool, great, fantastic, brilliant people have to die?  Why can't just shmucks die?

But I must focus focus focus on the good things.  My sweet and lovable neice, yummy spaghetti,  partying with my friends on Sunday in a deluxe suite.   The manager of the hotel promised to make it special, because they know it's my birthday.     (Hopefully they don't remember kicking Simone out of the hotel, and she can attend.)  Lucy is bringing pink champagne, and I'm bringing my iPad so we can dance to music.

My mind is full of mixed nuts, but I'm just going to try to focus on the positive and turn those nuts into peanut butter.  Yummy!
