It's odd how things work. Last week I was struck with a pretty bad cold. I compromised with myself and pleaded not to be sick because Halloween was coming up! "Don't be sick for Halloween!" I pleaded. And then Sterling had 4 days off from work, and I would have hated to be sick during that, so I pleaded not to be sick for a 4 more days... And so of course, today I woke up really sick. Luckily last week when I was sick, I went out and bought sick items. Like soup, tissues, and crackers, but wasn't sick long enough to use them. Today I actually got to use them. I felt prepared. And I'm thanking my past self for getting my future self tea and tissues. Interesting....
But it get's better!
And it really does keep getting better. The way the universe works that is... For example, you all know my heating problem. One meter on this house, but two units. And I'm the one who is supposed to pay... even though it IS illegal. Then my house sold, and the new owners think it's okay to raise the rent on top of all that... This entire thing freaked me out a bunch! Should I move? Should I stay? Should I fight it? I know I could.. So, I fought it. I told the new Rental Agency it was illegal to raise our rent, and it is illegal to have me pay for the gas meter. Of course she said it was in MY contract to do so.... And then I mentioned well, if she is going to follow that contract, she will need to follow it to the word. Because my contract says rent can't be raised for a year. Bam. I won. Well sort of. She called back a few days later and said they were willing to negotiate the contract and the gas bill and all that. And they were trying to make the house better for me... and for now I can stick to the old contract, and they want to figure something out in the future, but we can negotiate things. I felt better.
See? Interesting.. I wish you could hear my voice as I said interesting.. cause it's kind of like a whisper, where I hold out the inggg part. I wonder if it's from a movie or something. But in my head it sounds real cute. I should do more videos for this blog.
I'll get a new one soon.. after I buy a new printer. Maybe I'll get myself an ipad. But for now, I've got to wait and see how much that heating bill will cost me. It's been getting real cold out lately. It's even snowed a little bit! I don't want to use the heater, but I kind of have to. I've got 3 little animals that need to be warm. So, I have it set to low, and we snuggle under a heated blanket when we can. I know I'll look back on this little bit of my life and laugh.
I'll laugh because right now it seems like a disaster. But, everything I've mentioned in this post is about preparing for the future some how, without even meaning to. Everything does happen for a reason. I know that right now, during this cold bit in my life, I'm learning things and preparing for future events. The future is so liquid, that we really can't get too good of a grasp on things. It's full of surprises. Sometimes it's dogs, sometimes it's stocking up on warm clothes and heated blankets. The little things we do today have a huge impact on our future... so it's important to listen to our intuition. If you get the feeling to go out and get a heated blanket just in case the winter is cold. Do it. Because that is your future self, thanking your past self.. And you being the past self, (and the future self) you already know yourself so well... you can already feel it.
And now I may have confused you. Sorry.
