Well, supper is cooking, I officiated at weddings for two very lovely couples and their respective entourages this afternoon and life seems a little less stressful tonight. Jean is still coughing, but she is noticably better. And, it has stopped raining too.
After this morning's pity party, I remembered the most important way to deal with "brain scream." Take action. Do something. Even if all you can manage is a conditional leap of faith, it shifts the energy. So, I cleaned the living room for two hours. And, gave the rest to God. Left it on the voicemail for when God returned from Miami.
So, I heard back from a wedding couple that had phoned last month. They were ready to make a deposit. A cheque arrived in the mail. We got a lead on a $50 lawn mower.
And so, as the lovely smell of meatloaf wafts from the kitchen, I am feeling quite peaceful and content. Things are still pressing and there is a ton of work ahead, but, it can wait till the morning. I think a nice movie with Jean is in the cards. She could use the company. And now that I am in a happier frame of mind, she'll probably welcome me and my DVD. :)
