It has been confirmed for me, that we truly do not know what we have, until it is gone. No one really appreciates the freedom to do every day things, until it is taken away.
I have had a fantastic day, for the most part. Between now, and Monday morning though, i am not allowed to go more than about 20 feet away from my front door.
This means, that i cannot even check my mail, and i can't take my rubbish out! How many of you...that read my blog, appreciated being able to take out your rubbish tonight?
I bet a big fat zero many of you! haha
Penny is on to me too. I took Nixon down to the garden this evening to let him get a bit of fresh air and do his business. I dug around in the compost etc...she saw us outside and came waddling down the path. The first thing she did was ask, in her nosy/concerned/Gistapo - we have ways of making you talk voice - if i was ok because she had not seen me walking Nixon. She went on about not having seen me in days...when i saw her yesterday and got held up by her and was nearly late for court because of her.
I reminded her of this, and she seemed to remember. It was at about that point that she started going in to great detail about the check up that she has had on her bladder, and the corn that was removed from her foot, that just happened to be the largest corn that her foot doctor has ever seen in his whole life. She offered to take off her shoe to show me where it had been, but i assured her that i was happy to take her word for it. She also told me that she stopped at the BP station to buy Weetbix...lets see...what else...i think the rest just sounded like Charlie Brown's teacher....wahhh wah wa wa wahh wahhh waaaaaaaaaaaaaa
I had to lie to her and tell her that i have been taking Nixon for walks early morning before she gets up, because of the heat.
Ok so i feel really really stink for Nixon. He has not had his walk today. It's the first day that he has not had his walk. He has had no exercise and won't get any until Monday. I am happy to accept offers of the Nixon walking variety, if anyone is feeling like a bit of extra exercise. He is great for the legs, bum, and biceps because he pulls so hard on his leash and acts like he has never been walked before...every time we go out.
Right...Last night Dan brought me Burger King, and we watched movies. That was a nice way to spend my first night in captivity lol.
Today, i had the most amazing, inspiring, and exciting phone conversation, for ages with someone who is even more passionate...ok ok maybe equally passionate! than i am about ridding our society of methamphetamine. Together her and i came up with some amazing ideas on the phone. Tomorrow she is coming over and we are going to get to work on them.
My life is so exciting right now.
There is a purpose for my little ankle bracelet...a purpose other than the fact that it covers up that icky tattoo that i got on my ankle when i was 24...I am experiencing this for a reason. I need this experience to use in the future.
I have complete faith in that. I need to understand what this feels like. Just like i needed to understand what everything else that i have been through feels like.
On that note...i have been glued to a new movie that is coming out at the theatres soon here called "Precious" ...It's an amazingly inspiring story, so far and just seems to keep getting better. I need to go watch the rest of it.
