Breaking Through the Stuck Energy

OK, so yesterday when my computer got fixed for free, and a few other things worked out to my benefit, I began to think that perhaps "my luck had changed". Only the way I think of it is more that I am cutting loose from a stuck place, moving forward in an energetic way. I think that going to a couple of yoga classes helped bust me loose. And cleaning my place. Washing my sheets and lighting a candle. I think playing the Boob Job Mix loud helped too.

Today before breakfast I went to fetch a Sunday paper, and circled every possibility, scribbled out every impossibility, trying to track down MY HOME. I called quite a few Property Management Companies but only one answered--the very first one that I called. Well I guess a few others answered, but this guy (Mel) was my favorite. He is friendly and functional on the phone, and he called me back, and I called him back. In the afternoon I was driving in the rain, up and down Milwaukee Ave and the surrounding neighborhood. I was on the East side of the river, north of Sellwood, in an area I now know is called Brooklyn. I think I might get to live in Brooklyn. Cool beans.

I was calling every "For Rent" sign phone number I could find. And that's when Mel called me back. He'd already rented the place in the southwest that I called about this morning. But when I told him where I was, he told me about a green house only a few blocks from where I was. He has an upstairs apartment available NOW. I like the neighborhood. Tree-lined streets, flowers overflowing, funky old houses with big porches. Reminds me of Fort Sanders in Knoxville, TN--without the chemical plant fumes. The river is only a few blocks to the west. It's PERRRRFECTLY located relative to downtown and school. I'll be able to bike everywhere I need to go. I didn't even know this until I came home and really studied the map.


So Mel is meeting me in the morning to show me the insides of the place. I have a feeling this is it. I have my file all set up: ID, previous landlord info, account stuff, everything that he might possibly ask for in an application. I'm going with this one. Ten thousand percent better than the make-do apartment in Bertha that I was thinking of going with. And I haven't even seen inside yet. It just doesn't matter. If I can live in the Barn, I can make that house work. I'm sure there's somewhere I can stow my kayaks, and maybe even a good shed for Suzanne's chainsaw.

It's time for something to work out. I have given it my energy for a long time now. I'm on a roll now. Maybe a few other things will work out too.

So here's the dentist that was recommended to me by my advisor at NCNM:
I think I'm going to sign up for a cleaning and let them xray my teeth, assuming that they want to. Seems to be one way that dentists make their money these days.

I've got my fingers crossed for you. The place in Brooklyn sounds way better than the thing you've got going in West Linn. Plus it is so far away from downtown!

Thanks! Apps are in progress. I think we'll get it. We're first in line. And he's going to put in fresh carpet in both of the bedrooms and strip down to hardwood floor in the livingroom.

Close to downtown, YES! I'm sending good vibes that this one works out for you. It sounds so much better. If I lived in a city, I'd want to be close to downtown, especially if it were Portland downtown.

Sorry I didn't call you yesterday. I was really in a funk this weekend and would not have been pleasant to talk to on the phone. I guess that's a good thing to know about myself. What other times do you have free minutes?

Looks like we'll even have a guest bedroom! Come on down.

I'm sorry you were in a funk. But it's OK, don't call if you don't feel like it. I'm sending you good vibes. You can call me anytime....but not today or tomorrow! I have exams galore. Incoming calls are always free. I just don't call out except on weekends.

sounds really good. happiness begins with the living space, I know that very well. I wish you luck with it and hope you get the place. Will the gato be able to move with you?

Gato y Suzanne's pero are both welcome. Good neighborhood for them and fenced yard too. =-]
