Happy Valentine’s Day from Cat Lady #1

I knew it was going to be a great Valentine’s Day when this morning I woke up to go pee and saw that Oliver beat me to it as he peed on the futon in my office for the third time (fifth if you count how he took a dump there twice). I forfeited, and instead of trying to spray “Urine B. Gone” on it, decided to drag the stupid smelly futon to the dumpster.
Now my lovelies, I will enjoy sitting on the wooden frame in my office.
Yesterday, Diana came over and we started working on our fine art project. Basically, those really bloody Carrie stills she took will find a home in the gallery world. We are going to be releasing a limited number of enlargements and selling them to people who collect performance art stills. Our meeting somehow took a strange right turn as Diana noticed the huge boxes of yarn in the corner of the living room and screeched, “I wanna see what you have!” and she started to salivate through the hundreds of skeins of yarn tucked behind my couch. What made this so funny is that I was in my Pjs and Diana was wearing sweats and the sight of the two of us oogling and screaming at balls of yarn had to be the most charmingly pathetic thing ever.
Just now, I looked in the mirror and saw that my cheeks had broken out in zits. How did this happen? I feel like I’m in high school again. What happened to the beautiful lady who was on the cover of the Calendar section squatting against the side of her car? Where did she go?
I’m not quite sure what’s happened to me in the last two months. But despite all this self-help-the-secret-excuse-me-your-life-is-waiting-life-empowerment-stuff, I’ve managed to totally lose it and let myself go in other life arenas.
I am a cat lady. A lonely little cat lady with a lot of yarn and a great big blooming art career.
And as I have dinner alone tonight, with my cat, my laptop, my yarn, and my amazing career, I will be visualizing and manifesting the life I want. Because I swear, it’s almost already here. I can feel it.
