Organisation! - Suffering From Elation
A Survivor's Tale
I only just realised how good I'm feeling tonight. Not one moment of sadness, or anxiety, I didn't even have the typical butterflies before making the nightly international phone calls... I'm feeling so fine that the possibility of feeling bad didn't even occur to me until almost six hours into the shift, and when it did, it occured only in the context of mild surprise at its absence.

Come to think of it I've felt great all day. All issues have felt surmountable, all conflicts have deflated into nonexistance. I love seeing my parents but mum's place is so darn relaxing, I get bored, then I get mopey... so the second I got back to Brisbane this morning I plunged back into the art of Being Busy when I embarked on a tidying / organising spree that didn't end until my visitors starting showing up at nightfall. (My shoes have a home in a great big wooden box! My belts, scarves and assorted stockings and gloves have a home in a smaller wooden box! My clothes are neatly folded and hung and put away!)

Oh my god, who'd have thought that chronically untidy Tania could be made so damn HAPPY at the sight of organisation in her little cavern?

This entry is an excercise in pure pointlessness, I know, but here's my tip, guys: next time you're feeling really lousy about life, buy some cane baskets or a set of bookshelves or a wooden chest and organise something in your room. Clear some space, grab some breathing room. It's fabulous!

Of course now I have to avoid inheriting Dad's mild obsessive compulsiveness. The cords of my DVD player are visible and this mildly annoys me. Uh-oh.

I convinced mum to buy 'Hot Fuzz' sight-unseen when I was up there on the weekend. Predictably, she LOVED it. Now mum wants a Japanese Peace Lily named Nicholas as well. Get off my crazy-turf, woman! Hopefully she doesn't want her Peace Lily for the purposes of ironically smashing on the head of a big fella who goes "YARP" a lot.

Tonight the guys (read: Hammond, Diz, Joe, Kelly, Greg, Elizabeth) were over for fish and chips followed by lots of chatter followed by Scrabble followed by a YouTube session. It was AWESOME. At least if we don't find a new cafe we can always revert back to making my place the gathering point.

Joe is coming over tomorrow night and we will cook and design Wicked Campers and watch my Documentaries Of Violent Natural Disasters (my treat-for-self this week) and chill.

In the meantime, I can't wait to get home in the morning, cuddle me a Jangles-cat, and slide between the sheets with some soft music playing while I drift off to sleep. Mmmm... bliss. Home.

Scary yes! But on the other hand it means there will be a baaaaby to play with. Apparently they are squishy and you can poke them. :D

Pfft, the moment the baby makes smells, I hand it back. Heehee, have fun, mum and dad... ;P

Re vids - coolies. Next pay I will rock up to the PO with the box and let you know how much it comes to. *salute* Man, it is going to take you FOREVER to get through these!

If my brother has Jess's car, I'll be aiming for Tuesday morning for postingness. :) Getting the box from the storage place to the post office is my main issue.

Haha, what the heck is flying around that woman's head in your icon??
