I strung lights around my front window. I’m rather proud of that step into normal behavior. I haven’t involved myself in Xmas since my mom died. But I feel more human and interested in making a pretty place for myself. So I pulled out a box of lights I bought in an after Xmas sale, with the vague idea of making some kind of decorative element for the bedroom.
Now I need to watch the kitten and how he treats them. He and Bijou were on the balcony while I put them up. It’s a beautiful sunny warm winter day and kitten hadn’t been out on the balcony much. Bijou supervised. NO GROWLS!!
But I think it was serendipitous because then they weren’t involved in putting up the lights and didn’t see them bouncing about like a toy.
You know. I really am a WHOLE lot better than I was 5 years ago. It’s been a long VERY slow slog that feels like nothing gets better. But it really does. And it has. I doubt I will ever be Mrs. Mental Health. But I’m getting to be Mrs. Mental OK Sometimes.
Maybe I will buy tiny tree too.
