Well, I'm pretty sure I've made my selection as far as a computer goes, but I reserve the right to remain my fickle (yet loveable) self and change my mind another 80602686.8 times before making the actual purchase, likely sometime next week. At this point, I can say that my Mac pushers family seem happy with my choice.

And Bess and I seem to be channeling each other somehow. We've often commented that our husbands seem at times to have been separated at birth. While that's often said in moments of frustration, I feel the need to point out that we each have married quite exceptional men of astounding honor, who at the very least have exquisite taste in women!

But lately she and I have also been feeling the winds of Fung Shui swirling around our homes, and begging us to do something about the Chi in our homes. Now, I've been in Bess's home, and she is a FAR better housekeeper than I am. But for some reason we each have spent our weekends doing deep cleaning on our kitchens, when physically we maybe weren't up for it.

Why?

Because sometimes one realizes that emotional cleansing is more important than physical.

I have a lot of funky little links in my sidebar (down under "X-Files"). I have always been fascinated with questions that have no answers. Are there ghosts? Is reincarnation real? Do fairies exist? And the Loch Ness Monster? I have my own answers to those questions, but they are answers that can be found only in my heart, and not really in any science books (although I can find science books to back up my beliefs, what I feel was solid before I found "evidence" to support me)

For me, feng shui is sort of like that. Does it really matter if the bathroom is at the center of your house? Fung Shui teaching says if this is the case, you will flush all the positive energy out - better to have the kitchen, the room full of warmth and creation, at the center of your home instead. Does it matter if you can see straight to the backdoor from the front door? Good energy will zip right out without enriching your home. I don't know. But I know that in every home I've had, when I began following rules of Fung Shui - even the simplest ones of balencing all four elements (earth, wind, fire, water) other aspects of my life "coincedentally" began to balence as well. Does it work? Who cares. It feels better to have the order than to have entropy.

It just takes time to get there once you've allowed your home to submerge itself into that complete state of entropy, which we have.

And so we'll have another full cleaning weekend. The bedroom this time, and it will take well more than two weekends, I'm sure.

So that's why I've been letting the dishes pile up in the sink. I was subconsciously afraid of rinsing the positive energy down the drain....

Or maybe not.

So, if I spend the next week cleaning the apartment, my life will be better? Geez, I hope so.

Amie, I've been holding off on this, but your thyroid cancer & Justice Rehnquists together plus a feeling of pressure against my throat when I lie down solidified the uneasy feeling I've been having about my thyroid and I went to my doctor and insisted that she do more checking to find out why I'm hypothyroid.

And they found a small nodule--it's under 1 cm and too small to biopsy, but we're watching it.

Katherine, you didn't leave contact info, but I can tell you that a VAST majority of thyroid cancers (like 85% of them) are over 95% survival for over 30 years, and the treatment is ususally MUCH easier than most other cancers. Click on "My Cancer And Me" in my sidebar and follow some of the links there. And if you EVER need to talk, feel free to e-mail me!!! Good for you for pushing it with your doctor - a lot of thyroid cancers don't show up in blood tests. Let me know if you need anything.
