Another Day…

15 Jan

Woke up about 2:00 this morning with a backache, couldn’t get back to sleep.  About 3:00 it occurred to me that some Ibuprofen might help. Which it did , so i went ahead and overslept… and now i’m running behind on everything, but feeling much better.

Saw JM, the amazing analyst, yesterday, which is always a treat.   i poured out all my woes of the last few weeks, and he helped me ponder and sort. 

i was telling him how much support youall have been, and how close i feel to my blogging friends, and we talked about that for a while – how interesting it is that i can feel so close to you without knowing the color of your hair or what your eyes look like.  

He tells me that BDSM is going mainstream – he says there’s a TV show – on cable, but still – that starts out with an African-American woman in a corset with a strap-on, standing behind some man – and that after she pumps into him for a little while, he looks up with a smile and says “That didn’t hurt as much as I thought it would!”   The show’s called Shameless, i think. Have youall seen it?  You know, i don’t watch TV, so i get amazed easily, but really?

Anyhow, he thinks that good things are coming for me, in relationships.   i said it seems unlikely to me, but he apparently thinks so.   i told him that ‘Nilla’s been saying the same thing, and he nods, “I think you should listen to your friend.”

And he wanted to know if i’m as bouyount as i seem, meaning just that it doesn’t look like i’m  drowning in everything that’s happened, not about to go under any minute.  i think he’s right.  i am pretty bouyount.   It’s a better word for how i am than “ok.” 

Then  i eneded up skipping the birthday party last night – the meeting iwith friends lasted too long amd i was just tired.  i was sorry to miss it, but i’m glad i came home and went to bed.  Otherwise i’d probably still be in bed right now. 

i’m trying to do more of what i need.  Skipping my volunteer gig this morning to take care of business at home, and so i’m not too tired to enjoy my daughter tonight.

This afternoon, i’m going to Ms. Constance’s BDSM 101 class, and am curious and excited about that. Maybe i’ll have something a little more interesting to talk about tomorrow.

But for now, i’m ~

    shameless is on Showtime… it’s actually a remake of a series that was on Channel 4 in the UK a few years ago. good casting on the US version (including William H Macy, who is fantastic), but still nowhere as good as the original, IMHO

    and yes, the woman is using a strap on on her hubby in the opening credits… lol!

    (yes, i’m the tv watching geek obsessed with BBC America…)

    @Mick – yeah, he really is good.

    @Sfp – {laughing} Probably not. But someday we’ll be doing therapy with web cameras, no doubt!

    @Sweet Kk – Ok, cool – thanks for letting me know! Apparently no one but me is amazed by this?

    i’m so so so so so behind on reading blogs…first work (extra day last week), then the belated “yule” with my side of the family…and then my computer died yesterday. Sigh.
    Turns out was the power cord, so now i’m back to my “alt” life!

    This was a good post…affirming, warm, newsy…the kind of letters you love getting from “home”….

    i’m so glad JM confirmed what i’ve been feeling. *nods head*

    good things lay ahead for you, dear one…and now you are open for and to them…

    HUG,

    nilla

      Hey, ‘Nilla – Glad you’re back! I missed you…

      Yep, you and JM are on the same page, how cool is that?

      I’m sooooo glad your computer problem was just the cord. I was getting worried about you.

      hugs,

      aisha
