Every now and then I will deviate from my blog’s usual topics and go political, current affairs, or celebrity. I usually regret it. Today is no exception. I wrote this morning my heartfelt reaction to the inauguration. After 12 hours of non-stop coverage, I don’t think I can stand another word. At 7 p.m. I am turning on “The Biggest Loser,” I will have a snack and knit my little still unborn baby boy’s blanket.
A friend at work is about to deliver a little girl. I found the blanket I knit for my nephew’s baby a few years ago. I had sent him a message telling him I was making a blanket, and silly him, he told me they live in Houston and don’t need a blanket. OK. Now I have a beautiful blanket to give to my friend. The blue blanket is for my grandson. I will NEVER knit something that complicated again. There are so many mistakes! And it has taken me since August to get as far as I am, and I am not yet done.
I’m sick of writing about my depression. So I think I shall skip it for a while and do a little “faking it.” Nuff said.
Will only be working 2 days this week. On Thursday I will be having surgery on my thumb. I am really looking forward to that. Having a non-functional thumb basically makes your hand a paw, and you can’t do a whole lot with a paw. On Friday I have scheduled a whole day for “recovery from surgery.” This is a joke since this surgery is SO minor. But I need time off very badly.
Going to try to accept the fact that my cognitive function seems to have decreased by about 90%, and try to work to the best of my ability with that. No, I won’t cry when I make stupid mistakes, I will just accept them and hope I don’t get written up on my job. And if I get written up, I will prepare to be fired. And I guess that will be OK too.
I’ve been jobless, penniless, and homeless before. It is amazing how close you can get to God when you don’t have all the things we get attached to. Then it is just me and God, no complicating factors.
Fear not, little flock, for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom. Sell your possessions, and give alms; provide yourselves with purses that do not grow old, with a treasure in the heavens that does not fail, where no thief approaches and no moth destroys. For where you treasure is, there will your heart be also. — Luke 12:32-34
