  • this is the third day that I have sat down to watch TV, grabbed the remote and said
    Let's see what is on another page..

    channels.. pages.. whatever

    does it really matter anymore?

    my income is taking it's usual August nosedive

    I've been through this gauntlet before and quite frankly, I am sick of it

    I keep dreaming of what a real big lottery win would do. I could have an apartment that is really an apartment
    and not an overcrowded warehouse crammed with memories of hardship and heart break.. No, wait!
    I would move. I used to love this place but too many bad things have happened here. I need another new start.

    the sun is out today and I worked in my friend's garden to get a break from the lack of sales. Then I took a long nap
    and thankfully did not wake with sore teeth so I know there were not nightmares this time. The cool breeze coming in the
    window felt real good.

    part of my back molar broke off earlier this week. Another indication that stress is off the charts.. Thankfully there is
    no pain and the sharp edges don't interfere with eating so I won't have to have it pulled.

    my brother is getting worse, I think this is the straw that is breaking the camels back.

    I found myself watching a Paula Dean shopping show this evening.. I never watch those channels.. what is wrong with me?
    And why did she name one of her bedding sets "Delilah" when she doesn't even know the full story? She thinks Delilah was a tart..
    She must not have been paying attention in Sunday School.. what about Sampson, doesn't he get a mention? No, this is not a story
    of Mythology as her co salesman thought.. Good Grief! but somehow I was blissfully lost in a world of latte gingham sheets and the
    banter of these 2 clowns so I didn't really care too much about anything else.

    channels, pages.. whatever
