Rick Levine, do I need to get a restraining order..?

Once again, my horoscope is uncanny.  At least, I hope it is (the lightening up part sounds great!)

You have big ideas about shaking up things at home in the name of adventure. You don’t want to do everything the same old way as you always do. Your life is lightening up and you feel ready to proceed full speed ahead with your new plans. Meanwhile, assertive Mars in your sign moves toward a restraining conjunction with Saturn that’s exact by the end of the month. If you move too fast now, this speed bump will surely slow you down and force you to learn your lessons.

Well, I AM shaking things up!

Remember that office I was so excited about – the one I lovingly put together when I moved Max into a larger bedroom?

And remember how it was taken over by the family when my back was turned I was out of town?

And remember how I wrestled it out of their death grip and reinstalled myself as the owner of the office?

Well, it’s slowly been taken over again.  It started when I was in bed for 3 months last Fall, then continued as I found myself unable to produce, write, DO as much as I had before.

Ceiling-less Basement Office

But I’m feeling like I need an office again, and I just can’t stand the thought of kicking the family out.  Mostly, I don’t have the resources to man the castle and keep the interlopers (aka Gerry, Hannah & Max) at bay.  So I’m taking over my corner of the basement.

This had been the plan from the start, and we half finished the basement, but we’ve hit a snag here because Gerry’s getting a bit more tired, a bit more overwhelmed every day, and the wait for me to move into the office space downstairs turned into a holding pattern.

So I’ve requested permission to land.  It’s not finished, it’s not pretty, it’s not big, but it’s MINE!  ALL MINE!!

The bonus is we have a bathroom in the basement with a nice shower, so I’ll take that over and use it for my daily stuff (until we hit the coldest part of the MN winter when even a space heater won’t make the basement shower do-able!)

Ladies & Gentlemen, I present my new office.

It needs a LOT of straightening up, the move in is going to be rough, my computer doesn’t work and its currently dark, but it’s MINE!  And it’s cool.


Dear Mr. Levine.  Thank you – let’s hope you’re on point today with my scope!

It may feel as if a weight has been taken off your shoulders now that heavy Saturn has moved out of your sign. The cooperative Sun-Saturn sextile makes for a rather comforting day as you begin once again to make plans for your future.

Nevertheless, today’s free-flowing energy can be misleading, for you have consistently worked hard over the past few weeks. Don’t expect too much or you will be disappointed with whatever you receive. Your biggest reward is the satisfaction of a job well done.

    Because the floor under half of my kitchen floor is not insulated,it is very cold in the winter. (Although not Minnesota cold), I bought one of those small electric wood stove fireplaces. I think it was $130. It uses very little electricity,maybe 7 cents per hour, is safe and really does warm the room nicely. Plus you get the beautiful fake flames!
