I feel her pain

Lil: I'm looking for a sports bra
Clerk: For what kind of exercise?
Lil: Heavy lifting
Clerk: You lift weights?
Lil: Not ME the BRA.

Just something to cheer this space up a little and move some of the more depressing stuff down and off the page.

A reminder from home

And sometimes all it takes is a moment while cleaning out your email inbox to have some things become clear... I love you too, daddy.

A young lady confidently walked around the room while explaining stress management to an audience.


With a raised glass of water, everyone knew she was going to ask the ultimate question, 'Half empty or half full?'


But she fooled them all... "How heavy is this glass of water?", she inquired with a smile.


Answers called out ranged from 8 oz. to 20 oz.  


She replied, "The absolute weight doesn't matter. It depends on how long I hold it. If I hold it for a minute, that's not a problem.  If I hold it for an hour, I'll have an ache in my right arm. If I hold it for a day, you'll have to call an ambulance. In each case it's the same weight, but the longer I hold it, the heavier it becomes."


She continued, "And that's the way it is with stress. If we carry our burdens all the time, sooner or later, as the burden becomes increasingly heavy, we won't be able to carry on."


"As with the glass of water, you have to put it down for a while and rest before holding it again.  When we're refreshed, we can carry on with the burden - holding stress longer and better each time practiced”.


So, as early in the evening as you can, after you have done the best you can, “your personal best”, put all your burdens down. Don't carry them through the evening and into the night... pick them up tomorrow” when you are fresh and rested. Learn how to conquer your stress by taking on small burdens at a time rather than all at once. You will achieve so much more and be even more proud of what you have accomplished!


Guidelines for Life:

1 * Accept the fact that some days you're the pigeon, and some days you're the

Statue! Sometimes life sucks!!


2 * Always keep your words soft and sweet, just in case you have to eat them.


3 * Always read stuff that makes you feel good; In case you die in the middle of it, you will die happy and content!


4 * Drive carefully... It's not only cars that can be recalled by their Maker.


5 * If you can't be kind, at least have the decency to be vague!


6 * If you lend someone $20 and never see that person again, it was probably worth it!! Count your blessings!


7 * It may be that your sole purpose in life is to serve as a warning to others. 

Show them what you have accomplished since then!!


8 * Never buy a car you can't push. Remember, everything important in life may require extra work!


9 * Never put both feet in your mouth at the same time, because then you won't have a leg to stand on.  Never be too proud or too boastful!!


10 * Nobody cares if you can't dance well. Just get up and dance!!


11 * Since it's the early bird that catches the worm, then sometimes wake up early;  Be sure to keep your eye on the important things in life!!

12 * Don’t be despondent if at first you don’t succeed; Despite what they say, the second mouse often does get the cheese!

13 * When everything's coming your way, are you in the wrong lane? 

Be thankful and appreciative for your successes. Don’t be smug. 


14 * Birthdays are good for you. The more you have, the longer you live.
Grow old with a good attitude!  

15 * You may be only one person in this lonely difficult world, but you may also be the world to one special person!


16 * Some mistakes are too much fun to make only once. But improve on them each time!     

17 * We could learn a lot from crayons. Some are sharp, some are pretty and some are dull. Some have
weird names and all are different colors, but they all have to live in the same box.  Take pleasure in other's
oddness! Accept those who are different from you!


18 * A truly happy person is one who can enjoy the scenery on a detour.
Master the detours in life!

19 *Save the earth..... It's the only planet with chocolate! 


20 * Have an awesome day and know that someone thought about you today.  
And it was me!!!

I guess it's official now

So Friday was D day according to one "niece". That morning I got a message from the other saying that it was confirmed that he was getting out on Sunday and heading for his folks' house. I thought it was rather weird that they'd release on a weekend simply because I'd thought that administration dealt with releases and in most businesses (even if it's in a service industry, it's still a business) the admins don't work weekends. I as much told her this but got no answer. hm.

Anyhow, here it is... the Doomsday that I had originally in the timer and I look up on that trace site and see this:

Inmate Locator Results
No inmate found according to the requested search criteria. Please click here to search again.
If you have problems finding an inmate, please contact the Support Team.
Return to search page

No, I didn't mistype the id number as I've had it committed to memory for years now.....

Guess I'd better find something to keep me distracted today. All I really want to do is curl up on the sofa and bury my head in the blankets.

~~comments off~~

It's just one of those...

days, weeks, months....
Oh I could so go on.
and on
and on

but I won't


Because I'm depressed enough as it is, no sense making myself feel worse.

A couple of you know what's going on
and it's oh so more than I've let on
and it's definitely NOT just because tomorrow's Friday and that asshat is getting out from prison.

For when it rains
it pours
and these days we've had to refresh our memories on what a cubit is, it's that bad.

An asshat getting free
another asshat from the other side of our family slinging BS and causing a Civil War in the family (it's literally brother against brother)
neither of us knowing quite how to handle it
and seeing each other in pain
because of not only our own hurts, but because we hurt for each others problems too.


And suddenly I'm talking, not in my usual complete sentences
but in the little fragments that one of my other friends uses

Suddenly I understand
why her communications get like this when she's upset...

This is gonna be a long battle folks
and here I was doing so well


Instead of closing out this on such a shadowy note
I'm going to share a song... something uplifting
She's not my absolute favorite artist
so few of her songs I like enough to drop the money for the cd
However, I found that I like more than half this newest album...
and this song
is my favorite.
