Life Goes On

How much would I love to read blogs and play computer games on my day off today.  Hopefully, sometime between 1200 and 1500 today, the guy will come to get the fish tank.  This big thing in in my living room... It sits on the wall that is shared with my bedroom.  Ever since I decided I would be getting rid of it, seems it's gotten louder and LOUDER and LOUDER.  The water pump and the gurgling water...  Time for it to GO.  He left me a $100 deposit and has called to confirm this will be the day for pick-up.  Fingers Crossed.  I have some picking up to do today, before he gets here.  I'll let you know how it goes. 

I can't thank you all enough for your comments.  So MUCH we all live with.  One of my current favorite songs is "Sounds Like Life to Me" by Darryl Worley.  Things happen, we roll with the punches.  When I get to feeling overwhelmed I keep remembering something a friend used to say to me.  "Sorry, You're Just Not That Special".  It sounds evil, I know.  He's not saying I'm not valuable or I'm not a human being with great contributions to make.  It's more along the lines of "S**** happens" or "it's always something".  Every Single trial, tragedy, occurence, thought, has been dealt with or experienced by someone else before, and they got through it.  Moved on with life.  Matter of fact if you just walk around the grocery store, just look at those people, imagine what stories they have to tell.   Feeling unique, leads to feeling alone, and feeling alone is scary.  No need to feel alone, "you're just not that special" :0)

******  The guy just called to confirm he would be here between 1400 & 1500 ******  Looks like it will really Happen!  I've got some work to do. 

Take care out there in BlogLand.  Be gentle with each other.

One of my favorite thoughts is "This to shall pass."

When you are upset about something, think of how really trivial it is. Ask yourself if you will really remember it in a few years, or even think of it in a ew weeks.

Let today's downers be like todays headlines. Big today, forgotten next week.

Pet the puppies for me. I really miss mine some days.

But I remember all the GOOD times I had with them.

Yep. I know what you mean. When I'm stuck in traffic, I find myself staring at the people in the car next to me wondering about their lives, and what they have going through their mind.

Glad you found someone to buy your tank. We had a 55 gallon aquarium, and it was sure nice to get rid of it!
