I went walking with E last night. There were 1500 people at M’s funeral on Monday. I don’t think she will get over this any time soon. It’s just too strange and too sad.
We had dinner at her new house. She moved in with her bf and another friend last week. This was the first time I had met the bf. He was a Capricorn so I liked him. He is almost an Aquarian though which maybe explains the bedroom problems they are having. (No offence to the Aquarians among us…) I thought it was odd for a Capricorn, or any Earth sign actually.
We thought we fixed it the first time she mentioned it – we got her to send him a text message saying “I want you to come over now and xyz”, which he promptly did and things were great for a while, but now it’s back to a lack of action. She said she will give it six months and if it’s not working by then, she’ll have to break up with him. Pity cos he is a nice guy, but I don’t blame her. No one can live with a passion-less r’ship.
We still haven’t heard back from the owner of our house as to whether we can have a dog.
Today I have been practicing mindfulness. I am contracted to do a job that is pretty repetitive and non-eventful, so my mindfulness practice has been to keep bringing my focus back to the task at hand, instead of letting it flit off to whatever it pleases.
It’s not easy. It’s much more fun to think about blogging, or dating, or what I’m going to have for dinner. I think it’s important to persevere though. Eventually, my mind will be an ocean of tranquility.
