Are You Talkin' To Me ?

It has been a long and difficult day. I am tired. I awoke at 5 a.m. as is my custom every day to give my furkids breakfast and Wishbone his medicine. I have a few tasks to do each morning as part of my routine then usually at 6 or 6:30 a.m. I begin my job. With a little luck there are days when everything goes just right, the dictations are plentiful with lines and the dictators are easy to understand. On those days I tend to finish early, say in about 5 or 6 hours. I wish every day could be like that.

I was feeling really good having had one of those good days I just mentioned when my husband informed me he had heard one of the club owners where his band used to play had passed away. This impacted me in an extreme way that I did not expect. I seem to be going through a period of great anxiety right now about death. Midlife crisis perhaps ? I don't know. I have had these crises off and on for many years. Of course, they seem to be occurring more frequently now that I am...

Here Come The Demons

Christmas is once again over. The build-up was as amazing as ever. On Thanksgiving I put up the tree and we had our traditional Thanksgiving feast, my husband and I and our furkids. On December 1, brimming with excitement as it was both my sister's birthday AND the day she and I put up her tree, I went to my sister's home for the coming celebrations of the day.

When my sister and I are together we are like little kids, both completely oblivious to what is going on around and just focused on each other and our own world. We "ooh and ah" at lights, decorations, carols, and everything at Christmastime. It was an amazing day. Later in the afternoon on December 1 my dear brother-in-law, who is really more of a brother than anything, took us to dinner, which is a custom when I go to their house to help decorate. Then back again to their house for more sister fun. When we were finished we stood back and looked very proudly at the beautiful tree we created and congratulated...

"Of All The Charlie Browns In The World....."

Posted 09-17-2011 at 09:17 PM by caninemom3

The most wonderful time of the year is upon us again. Christmas time. The lights, the feeling, the magic in the air that you can actually breath in. Most everyone in my Christmas family are looking forward to the Season of Seasons. I love Christmas absolutlely and totally adore it yet this evening as much as I want to think about it and feel the excitement like everyone else, I cannot.

Frustration. Anger. Sadness. Hopelessnes. Uncertainty. Fear. Regret.

These feelings are not the feelings of someone who is looking forward to Christmas. Instead they are feelings which indicate and have indicated for many years the need for a drastic change in lifestyle. A change I am not brave enough in any way, shape or form to bring about.

I have spoken of this in the past and for those who have read my blog, you know what and who I am referring to.

The problem is I feel powerless to effect the changes that I know in the long run would be best...
