S., mom, E&E and me are home for the weekend. Mom was away for two weeks in NYC and England. I've been having a hard time with anxiety, so I'm interviewing therapists. I've talked to one, and I have two on my list to talk to. 

I'm following the election loosely, but I'm not worried. Work is going poorly. I need to get my phone fixed.

Three good things:
1. Chamomile tea.
2. Autumn leaves.
3. My brother is having a good week traveling around China.

Worked last weekend, but took yesterday entirely off. Slept a full ten hours starting at a reasonable time, woke up feeling rested. That's progress. i'm still pretty high stress because of work and money stuff, but I'm managing it. 

Did my weekly phone calls to keep in touch with people. Working through my to do list now. Swimming is going well.

 Content note: domestic abuse and violence themes, mixed with bad BDSM practices. And, I suppose, dark humor.

This week:

Work is going a little better than it was.

I started trying Airbnb, and have had three sets of guests so far: a French man and a Chinese woman from Tianjing, a couple who were hiking the Appalachian Trail, and a lady cop from New York up for the weekend to go to a concert.

Not as much writing as I want, not doing the career stuff I should be, but I'm feeling less socially isolated and I've gone swimming four times this week. Plus walking.

 This weekend E1, S's daughter, came to visit with her new boyfriend T. I like him! He's pretty intense, but he's clever and active. They left for a bike race this morning. S (mom's boyfriend) is still here and we're all talking foreign exchange rates and bank regulations. I adore my family. 

Lots to do today.

I'm doing my lists of turning negative recurring thoughts into positive/affirmative thoughts. As usual, it feels like stirring my brain with a spoon.

Oh, well. I want to do affirmative thoughts more than I want to deal with finding a therapist, so affirmative thoughts are go. 

Out to water garden/orchids.

  •  Deep breaths
  • Get up and move around
  • Get some water
  • Get a snack
  • Mantras
    • I am doing the best I can.
    • I am in the present, not the past or the future. 
  • Physical grounding, grounding using senses

So, Trump.

 Thinking about the election. Uh, disclaimer for only reading on if you want to read me on politics.

 I’m in the mood for action, for political intrigue, for space battles and sword fights and bishie boys. I will write at least 250 words per prompt, and may write more if the urge strikes me. I’ll be taking prompts from July 30-31, and my goal is to finish writing all prompts by Sunday evening. Leave prompts there or here. 

Written so far:

I posted four pieces of flash fiction over on my writing blog thanks to my prompt call, edited 700 words of Colony X, and wrote two entries of Tapestry. I went swimming, did a bit in the garden, and did some domestic nonsense. I talked to my friends, and read the news. 

More days like this would be good.

I'm taking writing prompts over here for the next couple days: http://lucyweaver.net/2016/07/30/july-prompt-call-2/  ;
