The Being Single Part of the Single Writer…

off

About a week and a half my life changed for the better… and then a month before that it changed for the better, before the better…

I got  major surgery that I’ve needed for so very long… and then I dropped a major burden in my life that just needed to be GONE!

And then last week, I finished the final, FINAL draft of a genre fiction novel. Believe me, my mind is very abstract and doesn’t think in “genre” but I did it. I made the genre work for my mind.

All that’s great indeed… But here’s what really punctuated the past and started a new chapter for me!

See… I spent the weekend at my mom’s house, which was nice. It’s lovely spending time with my mom. We drove out to Cathedral City on Saturday to see the final installment of Harry Potter where she actually answered a cell phone right in the middle of the movie! LOL! I whispered… mom, you know you’re like that irritating person right now who’s on the phone when we’re all trying to watch a movie…

Then we ate lunch/dinner at Billy Reeds. OMG… the food is divine! Which reminds me, I left my baked sweet potato in my mom’s refrigerator! Grrrr…

Then, we got back to her house and a few hours later my nephews showed up! It was great to see them.  The 13 year old who will be 14 in September is actually ACTING like a teenager…. it’s scary… Like he’s moody and sarcastic and what he’s feeling and thinking is a mystery. Of course I remember being this way myself… so the best thing to do is give him his space and wait for him to open up to me 🙂

Then, on Sunday I went to Starbucks, picked up Cinnamon Dolce Latte for mi madre and White Chocolate Mocha with soy for me. After I dropped mom’s drink off, I headed to Walmart to get an oil change. Wore myself out walking over to Best Buy under the noon sun…fast forward through nearly walking myself to pure exhaustion back to Walmart and buying a $25 ficus tree for my patio… then driving to Cabazon to buy gas on the reservation….

Now I’m here….

After hunting for a parking space at the Cabazon Factory Outlets (I’m not sure if it’s still called that), I went into Banana Republic–and you know BR just doesn’t do it for me any more.

So I saw this white dress with a pink and black print in the window of one store. Can’t remember which but I was mesmerized by it. I went inside the store and found that the dress was $398. And the salesgirl was trying to get me the buy it! But, when the woman herself–the store of the woman herself–Dianne Von Furstenberg was just right down the way–I thought I can beat $398 down at the place where the one who perfected the wrap dress, sells wrap dresses!

Long story short–I tried TWO of them on… and um… now they’re in my closet.

I cannot tell you how I look in those dresses! I feel truly sexy in them… You know, like the epitome of a feminine being…

I think the dresses merely punctuated all the changes in my life. The sky’s the limit. I know exactly what I want out of life and I know how to get it.

All  I can say is just wait for me Seattle–we’ll be together very soon! (or at least until I get bored with you–unless you can do the impossible–keep me interested for the rest of my life!)…

Yeah, I’m thinking DVF + Seattle = ME!!

Finally, “there” is in sight…
