Brick Walls and Toothaches
Brick Walls and Toothaches…
That could be the title of my new Vegas life…because it’s day by day and that’s what today is all about.
So much has changed so quickly, everything, I’m literally a new person in new clothes. A Vegan. 85 pounds lighter. No prescription medications. Managing the sometimes intense back pain with exercise, rest, Tylenol, rest, walking, Ember. And trying to restart a new life because I truly ended life and I knew it California on February 6, 2018, when I sold my family home of 21 years, in a city of over 43, and moved away to a town I never even really liked, Las Vegas.
Yet, here I am. Running in the sun with Ember at Peccole Ranch or Desert Breeze Park. Freezing on the Piaggio MP3 500 but having a blast as we scoot around in the frigid desert air of January, February, March..now..April?
How is this possible? Today I get my Nevada Driver’s License, I register my new Piaggio MP3 for the first time ever, in Nevada, and tomorrow Ember gets a new license. Contractors are working at Maison Bouley, my new condo, I’m sitting in the Lakes at a friend’s house and bam! Toothache.
So, 3pm, off to Desert Inn Smiles and hopeful relief. So grateful I can go.
I was going to go to Daltile and give up on my dream of brick in my new condo until I remembered I’m Karel, and I have a radio and TV show and publicity to offer a company I believe in. I believe in Thin Brick. I think it’s a very cool way to bring stone in to the home, and stone is real, permanent. There’s nothing like stone in a home. Brick. Slate. Marble. It speaks to something primal.
And I wasn’t going to have mine because of $. I’ve gone over budget in so much as the move took more, there were title problems with ridiculous lawyering where I simply walked away from 20k, letting a lawyer that didn’t deserve it get it…lesson learned…lots of Le$$ons Learned. But, I have no debt as of this moment, my condo is paid for, I have the deed. That’s odd, too.
Happiness is odd. So, the universe said, have a toothache. Spend more $ you wanted to save. But I’m happy to go, glad I can. So many times I’d wait until…what? Until the pain just stopped.
Happiness is new. It’s odd. So, have a toothache.
OK. But The DMV First. So, welcome to the closest thing to Hell in Las Vegas. DMV then Dentist. If today goes well, this city will have my heart.
