I hate this time change. It has got me all messed up. I feel perpetually tired.
This morning I learned the disappointing news that my dear sister-in-law and her family who live almost 8 hours away can not make the trip up for Thanksgiving. Ok, that one made me teary eyed. *sigh* We hardly ever get to visit with one another, it seems. Doggone it I was really looking forward to having them all here. Thanksgiving is one of my favorite times because it’s so family oriented, without the gifts or cards or other trappings of other holidays. It's just everyone getting together and sharing memories.
Then, the ’roaring lion looking for someone to devour’ (you know who I’m talking about) must have had me in his sights after that news for he sent one of my old time trolls to leave snarky, sophomoric comments on my Sunday post. Every time said troll opens her mouth, she shows her butt. “Really, woman, since we obviously don’t like each other, stop following me!“ Gosh. I don’t go to her blog and leave snarky remarks. I don’t even “follow” her once I figured out that her personality was to be bossy, rude, domineering and arrogant. You’d think the bossy broad would get the hint. I really think some women are mentally ill and in need of serious therapy. They’re such Drama Queens. Take hormones or Prozac or get another hobby or something for goodness sake. Just so long as you go away so I don‘t have to start nuking any further comments!
Now I find out that one of our new little puppies (this is so gross and I apologize for the following) is eating his and his brothers ‘poo’. OH SUPER YUCK!!! Well, they go to the Vet tomorrow for more follow-up shots and a check-up. I’ll ask him about something that can stop this habit. Please tell me this is temporary and that it won't cost me an arm and a leg. We've had such an expensive past few weeks.
We live way out in the country, so, keeping the right amount of groceries on hand is really essential, especially on Sunday. Except for a convenience store, the remaining local stores are closed on Sunday. I didn't realize that our wares are getting low. Thinking we’ll have salad for supper, Hubby went into the kitchen to begin preparations. Almost all the food he wanted to make was rotten. Now how did that happen?! Oh well. There’s always the Upside Down Supper of toast, eggs and bacon but now we’re almost out of eggs for tomorrow’s breakfast. God is good. I have a full belly and I am thankful for that.
I thought, well, after all, all that's happened recently is not so bad. Nobody we love is sick or dieing or in pain or serious financial distress. I do have a lot to be thankful for. I’ll handle it all. I always do. But what a day.
I'm sure this is why God made dark chocolate for day’s like this. Right?! And tomorrow will be better.
