Jay asked me (well, everyone) why I blog and then listed a whole bunch of really good reasons so that I wouldn’t have to think too hard. I decided that it’s to avoid paying for therapy. I want to take this moment to thank you all for being a part of my group therapy sessions. I’ve worked through a lot and all you had to do was comment every now and again about nothing in particular. I really feel that I’ve grown as a person and each of you almost have something to do with that. Almost.

I told Sky to go to his own home Friday and got the whole weekend to myself! What did I do alone in my apartment over the weekend? Clean. I feel so much better. Cleanliness is next to happiness is what I always say. Don’t worry, I’ve never said that. I don’t like cleaning things, I just like it to be clean and I can’t afford cleaning people to do it for me. I also realized I have a weird little quirk and I wonder if others have the same thing. If I have been cleaning anything, not organizing but cleaning, I have to take a shower immediately after. It’s not like I actually got dirty in the process but even running the vacuum means I have to take a shower. I might have problems.

I sang during a friends show at a bar last night. It was a last minute thing but very fun. Then a crazy old red headed guy dressed in full Jets attire insisted on walking me home. Normally I would be worried but he was nice and smaller and weaker than me. He proposed to me. How is it that the strangest human being at the bar will always seek me out? I’ve gotten so many proposals from strange old men in my days I can’t even begin to count. What in the hell is that about?

I'm not that obsessed but if I am working with something really dirty, I don't just wash my hands, I take a shower too =)
And congratulations on your proposal =))) It's funny.

Jay said...

I'm glad we have been able to save you all the money from therapy bills. The costs of those sessions add up in hurry! Uh, or so I've heard.

Anyway, I too show after cleaning. I guess it just feel dirty and not in the way I like to feel dirty either.

Well, there's the 8,492 times I'VE proposed to you! ;-)

I have to take a shower after scrubbing the tub or vacuuming the whole house, but that is because I am a sweaty mess.
Listening is key (and something I can do whether or not either of us has showered)... Which might be why I consider my own blog less of therapy and more of a support group.

I always shower after cleaning, then I feel clean too I guess

the Jets had a great day yesterday so that little man might have been on a real high
plus you're a kind, approachable person who is also gorgeous
hell, I'll propose

The best part of group therapy is the group hug!

Reb said...

Oh, yes. Must shower after cleaning, but age and weight does tend to make me sweaty :) (and forgetful)

Glad to be part of your therapy group and glad to have you as part of mine :)

We could get together and try and figure it out. (1 down, 8,491 to go)

knight, if you have a chance again, record your singing. We all like to hear you perform :)

When I'm cleaning, it's usually something I've been working on like rotten old wood, dusty concrete or just wood dust from some carpentry. I've got to shower after, if I'm to maintain any sense of being a normal human being not needing therapy, but sometimes I'm just to damn tired and I go to bed and soil the sheets. My wife doesn't like this to much, but she's no stranger to my lack of therapy ways, I've proposed to her twice and both times she married me after saying, yes.

I'm so glad to be of any help keeping you away from therapy.

I love reading your blog. I wish I could justify hiring a cleaning person, too. Wouldn't that just be nice?

Carmi said...

From a logical perspective, blogging doesn't make much sense because it takes time away from other, life stuff.

But life isn't always about being logical. And the connections I've made through this are priceless, and well worth whatever time I've spent on this little online labor of love.

Thanks for the timely reminder.

Do you shower after each proposal also?
