Another Day Closer and Farther Behind!

Thursday, December 9th, 2010

Yup another day has flown past and that wonderful “To Do List” has become the “Didn’t Do, Tomorrow Do List”! As they say the road to somewhere not so pleasant is paved with good intentions. In my case I guess it is paved with unfinished “To Do” lists! Despite all efforts I just seem to get side tracked from what I start out doing. I can be knee deep in the middle of a project and something will interrupt me, a knock at the door, the phone or even the cat coming over to get a pet can steal me away from my projects. Dose this mean I am getting senile or is it A.D.D.? Nope I just think it is a little known imperfection that my Queen discovered and coined the term “Swiss Cheese Brain” for! Now it used to be that I had Baby Swiss degree, then I slowly slid into the Alpine Lace level, but now I really do think it is the giant full blown crater sized Swiss Alps Level! It just seems harder and harder to focus on things let alone follow through on them! I started to think it was from not sleeping to well that this was happening, but I’m not sure? I got new medicine from the doc yesterday and tried it last night. Sleep is not what I would call it. I think I died about 10 to 15 minutes after I hit the pillow, and proceeded to resurrect some time around 9:30 or so when nature called to remind me that it was still in control!! So, okay I’m thinking it is gonna be one of those times where you lay there and plead to go back to sleep for even 5 – 10 minutes. NOT I hit pillow, Lids hit cheeks throat goes snore and it is off to Never Never Land, out until 11:30 am when the Mrs. wants to know if I am going to sleep the whole day away again!! So up I get in this totally Zombie-istic like state and am expected to do a list of things! Hmm DVR … LIST, DVR…LIst, DVR….list; I guess we ALL know which won out!!!

A Time For Joy and Peace?

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Okay so they say when December comes, yeah right actually it is when Thanksgiving comes, you are supposed to get into the holiday spirit. Well I would surely love to, but of late it seems that every place I turn all I see is abandoned houses, people on the streets holding signs up saying,” Will work to feed my family!” and posts on properties that say “Thieves will be SHOT!” How then do you get to that point of good cheer and merriment? I heavily rely on my faith and can always lean on family, but I know there are those out there that aren’t as lucky as I am and my heart aches for them. It is not to say that I don’t have money problems or that I am in the greatest of health either, but even as I see the overdrafts drawing nearer and the gas bills getting higher because Old Man Winter wants to blow his cool with us, I know that there will be a light around the corner for me and we will be fine.
The Mrs. and I talked yesterday and decided that even if we can not do a great deal for everyone, at least perhaps we can do something special for some. So it is with that we decided to start ‘From Our Hearts to Your Family” and reach out to all of you to help where you can. If you can find it in your hearts, or spare change cans, any amount that you can do would start the ball rolling and before you know it we have helped a family and are on to the next!! We have set up a donation link to the right side of my page if you are so inclined to help us help others.
Thanks to all of you for sparing your time and hearts!
