Conscious Catholicism

Well, I finished up with the main thing that I came to LA for, which was to close out my Public Storage unit. I sorted and sifted through the boxes containing several years of my life. My friend Bab’s (who lives here) is letting me use her garage for storage until this summer, when I’ll come down and get everything. The rest of the things I donated to a local Woman’s shelter. Through the kindness of the PS manager, who will box up and bring everything over to the shelter for me. The only work that I had to do was to get what I wanted and pay this months rent. This whole arrangement is truly kismet in action, and a win-win for everyone. I swear that the space was a time capsule for the late 80’s early 90’s. I can breath now that it is mostly over, everything is still in the rental in the garage downstairs. Tomorrow I’ll get together with Babs around 1pm and put everything in her garage. Tonight, I’m going to go to Mickey’s and possibly Gold Coast. One of my favorite bartenders is working tonight and I haven’t seen him since I was here last. This year has really been one about consolidation and closure on so many levels. This is a very good thing as I really had wanted that to be the focus for myself, in order to move to the next part of my journey. In order to prepare for tonight’s outing, I went out and bought 2 new outfits. One for tonight and the other for lunch with friends tomorrow. I spoke with Mike and he had a good time last night, went out drank and sang bad karaoke, one of his favorite things. Maria slept over on the sofa. I am enjoying the visit here in-spite of what my other journal entries may lead one to believe. I have to say though I’m looking forward to getting back to my usual routine. Isn’t it funny when on vacation I look forward to getting back to the routine. Back to Mike, I want to pick him up something that he’ll like, I was thinking of some tacky, gay t-shirt, with some funny slogan on it. He’s so practical that he’d probably prefer that I just get him some nice undershirts instead. Well, I’m not going to head out until around 9pm so I have a few hours to kill. I was thinking of taking a nap, I am tired. My only concern is if I sleep now I won’t want to get up later on.
