Day 4: Facebook Fading

I am sitting at this table with you and we're enjoying the sunshine, a gentle breeze, and good conversation. The flowers are lovely and I can smell the lemon and hear birds chirping.

O.K. so maybe I'm exaggerating but it is a nice place in my head. Actually, today, the weather is crappy again. What happened to spring, pray tell? I'm pretty tied of this. I think I'm going to have to go to the desert just to get some sunshine.

Weather: Cool, damp, cloudy
Pain levels: 3
Energy level: 4

In reality half the day is gone and all I accomplished was getting Sarah over to her other grandparents. She wanted to go and since she is going to her Dad's for the summer, she needs to visit them. It will give me 24 hours of space to get a few things done. At least, that was the plan. All I really did was get up, feed her, get her some items packed and take her over. 

I did stop at the grocery to pick up some items. I also went to the thrift store looking for coasters. They didn't have any but I did pick up a suitcase for Sarah to use and a lovely figurine that I have no idea what I'll do with, but she was lovely and I wanted her. I suspect she was rather expensive when someone bought her originally. She cost me $8 at the thrift store but I suspect she cost well over $20 new. I'll post pictures when I unpack her. 

I had to work on the router a bit and now I'm going downtown to get the statement from the VA that will allow me to signup for some financial assistance for medical expenses at one of the hospitals. 

Later, I hope to do some writing on the short story. I've been organizing several group things and my own story is flagging. I doubt I'l be back on today. 

I'm not missing Facebook at all. That can't be a good sign.


  1. Or it could be a great sign. :) It's not that I don't miss you there, but I find I can't stay too current on FB AND make great writing progress....

  2. It sounds to me as if you actually did a fair bit. You organised Sarah and dropped her off and you did some shopping too. You know, sometimes it is ok to not do too much. Take it easy on yourself. I look forward to seeing a photo of your figurine. I hope she gives you pleasure. It is nice to occasionally buy something frivolous just on a whim.

  3. Your weather can't be any worse than ours, the weather is is total crap all the time ( well most of the time) I'm so sick of being cold and watching the rain its JUNE !!! this should not be happening :-) But apart from that, it does sound like a nice place in your head, I'll endever to maintain the nice place in my head :-0
