Today I Love That The Park Is Back To Normal

me, coffee, wednesday office
Tired, but happy in the Wednesday office

Today I love that the park is back to normal and that we had no rain while we were tearing down and that Summerfolk44 tear down may have happened in record time. I love that I had to tow one of the big trailers to storage this year and towing it with my Ford just made me miss my old Dodge even more, sorry Ford lovers, but that old six cylinder Dodge never grumbled about a heavy load and all that Ford V8 does is scream like I asked it to haul the world on its back. I love that the Ford has a back seat and half doors and I can lock up all my tools when I’m away from it and still leave the back open for stuff to be put in and taken out. I love that I got to tear out some of the inside of one of our older camper trailers to make more room for Summerfolk stuff that needs to be stored. I love that it was about a hundred and eighty degrees in that trailer and I still got the job done. I love that I ache in places that never ached before because that means that I can still do what needs to be done and all it costs me is some pain the next day. I love that I can deal, and when I can’t I just take the meds that are prescribed for me and then go do more stuff. I love that I sometimes take the meds after I’ve been in pain for a while because I suddenly remember that I have them. I love that I’m still getting by on medication that isn’t very strong.

Today I love that I’m in my Wednesday office and working hard at getting caught up. I love that people are asking about the Festival and how it went and I’m able to tell them in all honesty, there will never be another one like that one. 😉 I love that I am doing different things today and I’m shuffling them around so that I get caught up on different things evenly. I love that I got word today that I am due to write a post for my writers’ group’s blog and I always like doing that, bring it on! I love that I have a lottery ticket in my pocket and I really love that, until I actually check it I could be a multi-millionaire, wouldn’t that be a hoot?

Today I love that it rained hard and long last night and lightning and thunder was my lullaby as I fell asleep. I love that a bolt of lightning struck so close that the thunder started almost before it hit and I still fell asleep within seconds of that happening because I was so tired after working tear-down all day and then steering the dragon boat last night before I finally got to shower and climb into bed.

Today I love drinking coffee and working in my Wednesday office while I smile happily about another successful Summerfolk.

Today I Love That The Park Is Back To Normal

Kelly Babcock

I was born in the city of Toronto in 1959, but moved when I was in my fourth year of life. I was raised and educated in a rural setting, growing up in a manner I like to refer to as free range. I live on the traditional lands of the Chippewas of Nawash in an area where my family history stretches back 6 or 7 generations and my First Nations friend's families go back hundreds of generations. I was diagnosed with ADHD at the age of 50 and have been both struggling with the new reality and using my discoveries to make my life better. I am a freelance writer and I write two blogs here at Psych Central, one about living with ADHD and one that is a daily positive affirmation that acts as an example of finding the good in as much of my life as I possibly can.
