I have such wonderful people in my life. Sometimes it’s easy to wallow in the mire and forget the goodness that I have around me. You guys life lift me up. You really do. Thank you for your comments yesterday. I feel much better after reading them all.

I think what my dad wrote makes sense to me. I need to find something I can do that puts me around real live people… interaction. That’s what I’m lacking right now. I love my alone time. I’m a hermit and pretty introverted. I’m shy. Weird, but I am. But once I get myself involved with a group of some sort I thrive within that group. I knew this about myself and have been searching the area for something to get involved with but so far, no luck. I have checked with the library, the chamber of commerce, Hobby Lobby (art classes), churches, community college, and etc. So far I haven’t found anything that fits my needs. The library has lots of activities but they are all geared to kinder aged children. Hobby Lobby has artish classes… quilting on Tuesdays and oils/acrylics on Saturdays. I’m not into either of those. The churches haven’t got anything to offer. Community colleges have all sorts of things that I can’t afford. So there we have it. I will not give up though. I will keep looking. I will find something.

As you all know, I haven’t been feeling too good the past few weeks… the beast is acting up and now this possible diabetes thing… ugh. Coach called me today and told me some of the other wives have cooked up some food for me since I’ve been under the weather. What a great group of women! I can’t remember ever having someone do something like that for me before. I’m incredibly touched by this.

Faith, a wonderful blog friend, she has dedicated a fish to me! A beautiful white/red betta fish in a very pretty bowl with live plants. She sent me a picture this morning:

Faith does fish rescue in addition to having many of her own fish & frogs. She has gorgeous aquariums. I look forward to hearing how “my” fish is doing.. thank you Faith!

Something else I learned about from Faith, and I can’t believe I’ve never seen or heard of this before ….. PEPPERMINT PEEPS! Oh my! (With the blood sugar situation I know I shouldn’t even be thinking about such things…but)… I can’t wait to get my hands on some peppermint peeps and drop them in my mocha coffee…. my mouth is watering as I type this… holy cow.


This afternoon I was eating my lunch and cruising the guide on the ol satellite tv. I came across a movie that I haven’t seen in years! A favorite…. Toy Story! There are so many lessons to be learned in that movie. Buzz Lightyear…bless his heart… he found out a lot about himself when he saw that commercial with thousands of Buzz’s on the shelves of a store. It took him a while to figure out he was special even though he was part of the masses. The little evil neighbor kid… Sid… wow. I know some kids like that.

Anyway… Happy Friday! I am going to the school’s Fall Festival this evening so it’s back to the bed to rest up for an evening of fun…

Being an adult is like looking both ways before you cross the street and then getting hit by an airplane.

  1. Great to have those women looking after you. It’s comforting when people do lovely things like that, especially if you are someone who struggles with groups and social and all that! I get you there! Completely. Glad you are feeling better. I really don’t know how you do it – overwhelm on it’s own floors me completely! You are also inspiring me to get out there and find me a group. 😉 X

  2. You sound as if you’re in a better place, now. I know life in general can become overwhelming, and then throw in a chronic disease, and we’re pretty screwed! I’m glad the school friends are helping. I so wish I didn’t live thousands of miles away — I’d be there in a sec to help. Now that you’re thinking volunteer jobs, schools are always in need of volunteers. So are nursing homes. You’d have to get background checks, but that’s no biggie. Have fun at the festival.
