#infj #migraine #spring #vampire #toys #collector #stepfordwives so as i was lying there flat on my back across the bed wrongwise, seeing a big blob of color in my closed eyes, i pondered, is this migraine aura? am i dead? .. & then i realized, no, that's right, it's a dead-a-thon, when the undead rise after long cozy snowy days & viruses & begin the first days of our traditional spring cleaning list.. :D dear god. we're all house so we each choose our territory & divide tasks, mr dad gets the outside & garage & raven does the heavy lifting, etc.. spring clean '19 started out rough, i pulled basically everything. lying there, heart pounding, though still actively studying the ceiling for moth 'silks' or the odd pale house spider venturing out of hiding, i feel my vampiric ancientness.. once again just individually vaccuuming my beloved plush toy shelf of lions, tigers & bears over my bed nearly proved the death of me with my low bp issues.. (but yes i did stop to play with some of them..) as a toy collector i have merely one million tiny things to be dusted, the 'altar of eclectica' alone has crippled me & mr dad both in years past & must be broken down into sections. not that i don't appreciate the cobwebs, it is a ghost house afterall.. i am proud to say i've finished both the toyroom & playroom & am ready for the spring library book sale downtown coming up soon :) but i may have triggered a migraine for my efforts, one neck pull the wrong way or lifting anything heavy can result in days of pain, though i think it is the good friday full moon approaching that's probably causing it.. i'm also starting to feel all stepfordy like my favorite scene here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VG7JAM6DQnM still so much to do, but hey, at least it's still spring, at times we don't finish till halloween, & of course nothing demoralizes an ocd person more than rerolling that list.. :O the altar: https://friendlyghost.typepad.com/photos/ghost_toy_catalogue/eclectica.html
