Silly Slippers

The Boy is wearing his leopard paw slippers, and you can't see in the picture, but I'm wearing the gorilla slippers my Aunt Margaret gave me for Christmas. She always gives me novelty slippers for Christmas. She's like little Ralphie's aunt in "A Christmas Story"...she thinks I'm perpetually 4 years old.

What I'm Reading Now

I've finished "Empire Falls." Good book.
Now I'm reading "The Shipping News" again, for the third or fourth time. I don't know why I like it so much. It's not exactly a warm and fuzzy story. I'm roaring through it. I only started it last night, and I'm already halfway through. That's because the Boy had a three-hour long nap this afternoon, and all I did was lie on the couch and read. That was nice. I don't get to do that very often anymore.

What The Psychic Said

I went to see a psychic with my friend on Saturday morning.
So, yes, she said all kinds of things that could apply to many situations, such as: I'm processing my past, am on a different path, will take a trip near water, legal papers concerning property show up in my future. I will however, mention that I'm now happy about the split with my ex-husband which initially was very hard...obviously my life is and will be very different from what I thought it would be when I was married, Peter and I are planning a trip to Boston this summer, and I still technically own a house with my ex, which we have yet to figure out what to do about.
The kicker though, was when right in the middle of all this, she said that there was a boy in my life, very young, but with old eyes, with wisdom beyond his years. She said we have a very strong connection which will never be broken, and that he's going to take care of me financially when I'm old.
I thought that was an odd thing to say, because, since the split, the Boy and his father have become very tight, and my biggest fear is that he'll come to prefer his father over me. I know it's stupid, but I can't help it. I think about it all the time. Anyway, it was a nice thing to hear.
So, scoff away, but I had a great time.
I want to believe in ghosts, karma, Sasquatch and Nessie. I think it would be very sad to live in a world without mystery. (not aliens, though...anal thanks!)

She did also say that I was a weaver in a past life...I wonder if that means I'd have any natural ability if I tried it?
