Slipping in Shit

I began yesterday slipping in soggy dog shit. In an effort not to fall backwards, I began falling forward and grabbed the branch of a shrub. I didn’t fall.

This. This is metaphor material.

It’s also how two things can be true at the same time. Like - I’m grateful I didn’t fall backwards & hit my head on shit smeared concrete. But it was also a little scary. Gratitude and fear.

I can be good at my job and slip in shit that I wasn’t responsible for.

You can be good at your job and disliked.

I ended yesterday slipping in cat vomit and Bogart projectile vomited this morning. I was already beginning my day at the dentist so Andrea had to bring him to the vet. I hope he didn’t swallow something he wasn’t supposed to but he’s not the brightest. So now I’m worried him.

You can be worried and still show up.

Last night, I dreamt I was running from small room to small room administering abortions. When I awoke, I googled to learn what this could possibly mean…

… meaning of this dream is that there may be a situation occurring in someone’s life where they’re being forced to make a decision or go through with something whether they want to or not. They may feel unwilling to do so but feel like they don’t have any other choice. The symbolism behind abortions in dreams typically relates to how one aspect of the person’s life ends and gives way to another stage of growth.

You can take action whether you want to or not.

We painted an accent wall in the small room that used to be Andrea's office. Then we re-hung photos. It's a work in progress. While working in that room, other rooms got messier. It's all a work in progress.
