Everyone Needs a Little Nietzche in Their Life

dancing

Well, here I sit, ever so slightly hung over and tired. I went out with a girlfriend last night, for a couple glasses of wine and a bite to eat. We generally have gone to one of two fairly local places, but last night tried a new place. We prefer a kind of smallish place with good food, a bar, and live music. This place had all 3, and we had a ball.

We were sitting next to a table of 3 people, and by the end of the night we were sitting with them. We were all dancing, joined by another woman who was at the bar with a man I assume was her husband. Anyway, she was clearly older than me, maybe in her 70’s but was dancing with us. The music was great! My generation music, and a complete band, with lead guitar, bass, drums, GREAT keyboard player, a woman saxophonist, and a guy just on harmonica. The woman was playing the sax on the dance floor with us. One of the guys was buying shots for us while we danced, (I only had 2).

I have not danced in YEARS, except at my high school reunion. I was always at dances in high school, because my boyfriend played lead guitar in a good band, they had gigs most every Friday and Saturday, so I was always dancing with my girlfriends up by the band. But my ex-h could not dance, had no rhythm, lol. So we never danced, and I have found myself now self conscious about it. Lately though, going out with this friend who loves to dance, I have been freeing myself up from that feeling that I was making a spectacle of myself, and just decided to β€œdance as if no one was watching.” It was so much fun!!

Generally when we go out, we are home by 11 or so. Last night I didn’t get home til midnight…and was exhausted, after working my butt off on the house. But my garage is now acceptable, except for the stuff I need to take to the dump Today I’m going to attack the storage area in my basement. Then really, all I need to do is to clear the kitchen counters, etc. My yard needs a spring clean up, but I’m calling someone to do that. I just can’t…I have shrubs that need cutting back, and beds that need to have the leaves cleaned out of, trees that need pruning. I just can’t do that. And my fireplace, lol. Not sure what to do with that.

My brother-in-law called me yesterday, and talked to me about some of the issues the inspection on my house turned up. He didn’t feel any of them were really anything to worry about. The report said I didn’t have sufficient amperage in my electric service to run the house. I have 100 amps. But he talked to people who know, and said I should never be drawing more than 60. And that if the 100 isn’t enough I will know soon enough and can get it fixed then. So we will just use that to negotiate, but perhaps I don’t need to spend the $2000 to get it upgraded after all. The report said the hot water heater needs a relief valve or something, that it could cause the heater to leak or drain, which could cause a flood. Well, this is true….but the hot water heater is outside, so who cares if it leaks? It’s not like it’s in the basement (which would be the case where I live now) and going to flood the basement. So that’s all good news. I’m feeling good about the whole thing. I think I’m getting a really good house for the money right now.

I am getting more excited by the minute to get moved down there. I’m seeing it come closer and closer. Feeling the life I dream about becoming reality. Feeling blessed.

Love and light to all.

  1. Love it! So much positive energy. Dancing, music, so good for the soul – you should make it a regular thing and really…dance like no-one is watching!

    Everything you’re doing with your house is also about movement, positive energy, cleansing, raising the vibration….and remember, what you put out you’ll attract back. Keep smiling! ❀ x

    • She and I go out probably 2 or 3 times a month. Actually depending on if she has a date, or by chance if I did. However, I’m off the dating sites so chances of it being me are pretty slim. she’s 15 years younger than me, and very attractive, and gets a lot more attention, lol.

      Dancing is good for you, it’s good exercise, good way to meet people. It is a smallish place so there were only 6 or 8 of us dancing, basically all together, just laughing and moving. It was very comfortable.

      Nice to just feel happy. πŸ™‚

  2. Great quote! Hmmm. A water heater outside? Do you mean in the garage? My apartments’ water heater is in the garage but I never heard of one being outside. The relief valve can spew out excess water but if the pressure’s high enough, it can cause a pretty good boom!
    I know you are so excited you could burst….I’m so excited for you! Happy Easter. πŸ™‚

  3. I can relate to your dancing. I’ve always loved to dance. However I barely attempted and my husband has always been out of tune. Nowadays for some unexplainable reason I feel the stigma and that’s why I don’t…..but happy Easter !! πŸ‡πŸ£πŸ₯

    • I think it’s because they make us so self conscious with their constant berating and belittling of who we are. It’s a constant assault on your soul, and you begin to doubt yourself. I finally feel pretty much free of that….It’s wonderful. Have a Happy Easter too!!!

      • Not only that they have made me associate dancing as something immoral. And that’s a shame. Things that are considered normal are just backwards. Until I feel free of these reins it will stay with me. Hope you have a wonderful day yourself! πŸ™‚

  4. I am glad to read last night warranted so much happiness. Here’s hoping it carries on into today and next week! Countdown to your move should be in order! πŸ™‚
