I’m sure I’m just being paranoid. Our work meeting I mentioned in my last post was canceled. Of course, it had nothing to do with what I said in my post, right? LOL. When I found out the meeting was canceled, I was thinking, “oh crap! She read my post, and she just said fuck it!”. 😉
How silly is that? This is an anonymous blog, and I doubt many people are reading so what are the chances she knows about it? However, if one person at work knows about it, then everyone knows. One of the people at work did find one of my (now defunct) more public blog years ago. I didn’t care because I wasn’t saying anything really private. It did kind of creep me out that someone found it though.
I got my tax refund!! It’s pretty much already gone. But that’s a good thing. Some went to savings which isn’t really considered “gone”. I’m just not touching it. I haven’t touched my savings in a year. FWIW, I don’t have a ton in my savings account. The rest went to paying off debt. Now that money is really gone.
I also got my first paycheck with my raise. I like. 🙂
What did I do today besides work? I cleansed my crystals in the sun. Yes, I am now into healing crystals. Putting them out in the sun for 4 hours is the easiest way to clean them, in my opinion. I’m very aware that the rest of what I’m about to say sounds nuts to nonbelievers. I’m okay with that.
Anyhow, I have a newish morning ritual. I now light a battery operated wax candle (!!) because I hate fire. I’m scared of fire so no sage or real candles for me. NOPE. Back to my morning routine: I don’t turn on lights when I wake up. I turn on a candle. I sometimes pick a crystal to meditate with. Even if I don’t pick a crystal, I still meditate for 10 minutes. Then I pray for about 3-5 minutes. Then I pick a Tarot card for the day. Sometimes I do A Course In Miracles lesson, but recently I’ve been doing it in the afternoon.
I’m not skilled at reading tarot cards. This is very new to me. I have a new mini guidebook on tarot cards, and I’m picking up a book from the library on Saturday about the tarot. Eventually, I would like to do readings for myself (and maybe others but that is years away). The funny thing is that I don’t really believe in horoscopes. Well, there was one company with an app that did really accurate readings, but they went under, so I don’t bother with horoscopes anymore.
But I do follow the Zodiac. (My main sign is Taurus, but I am also a Gemini and Pisces – confusing. I know) I don’t know if this is making any sense. What I mean is that I don’t follow daily horoscopes, but I do believe in having my tarot cards read. I haven’t had them read personally because I don’t want to invest in that right now even though I know a woman who doesn’t charge a lot because she’s new. She gives accurate readings online so I should probably try her before she raises her prices. I digress. It’s late. I’m watching March Madness while I’m typing. Loyola-Chicago just won again! Good for them. Can I keep a thought straight? Lol. I need to get to bed. What does this have to do with my morning routine or tarot? Nothing. Obvs.
I want more crystals. One day I might list the ones I have and what I use them for in this blog. Of course, I have a lot for abundance/prosperity. I just feel like I need more variety.
I’m also trying this new thing of living by the moon which is too much to get into right now. I know that sounds nuts even if the other stuff doesn’t. ROFL. 🙂
I’m going to bed right now, and I will pick up with what I did this week tomorrow. I should edit this entry tomorrow, but I’m not. This is my brain on lack of sleep. I never have a problem with sleep, but the past 2 weeks have been rough. I think I know why, but I’m not 100% sure. I’ll explain in another entry.
This week I…

I’m going to the library on Saturday to pick up two books. One is on the Tarot, and one is about astrology. Sadly, most of the great books on the Tarot are checked out, but I did find one.
Planner update: Plans of the week in my Erin Condren
Plans for the Weekend: I don’t want to go out on Saturday, but c’mon it’s the library! So far that is all I’m doing besides cleaning my living room. I haven’t been to the library in a while. I avoid going there during the winter. Speaking of weather, it is supposed to snow Saturday night into Sunday. I have a spin class on Sunday at 10. I hope the snow isn’t too bad. Well, if it’s really bad the place will probably be closed. I also want to pick up my new purse (see pictures in the post below) from my mom’s house on Sunday. So no snow, please. I’ve waited long enough for this purse. Lol.
I haven’t been to the park since Monday afternoon. I think I’m not going back until Tuesday. It is supposed to be 60 degrees and then I think it will be warm until next winter. I’m looking forward to going back to daily walks in the park with my dog. Bye winter!!!11!!!
Thanks for reading my unedited thoughts! Have a great weekend. 🙂
