They say a picture is worth 1000 words; what does this picture say to you ?
We planted this little guy over two years ago … was supposed to grow into a big tree … instead it still looks like a little twig. Against all odds though the twig is producing oranges 🍊. This makes my day!!
Freeze Time. There are days like today where I sit back and reminisce about the good old days and I wish I could freeze time. Thankfully this morose feeling doesn’t last long. Stuck in the past is no way to live; one has to move forward. Keep the memories, sure! But don’t close off to what’s in store for the future. The only thing constant in life is change and I have always embraced change … maybe after a little reluctance but I usually come around quickly. I am a jump on the band wagon, I’ll try almost anything once type. Thank you daddy! Most things good in me, I attribute to his influence.
Anyhow, moving along, we have one more dayuntil the milestone, ten year anniversary of a most unfortunate event. The suspense will end because I will unveil our story of that fateful day. In the meantime, I will organize my office, since doing so was a bust when I tried last Saturday. I’ll leave you with a picture I found when I was supposed to be cleaning. This is one of my favorites because it was taken right before H was diagnosed. The carefree innocence of childhood before cancer invaded their life. These … four … kids … are the reason that this morning I kind of wanted to freeze time.
Does “I’d like to bitch slap <insert pronoun of choice> into next week” count?!? Lol!
Here’s a few colloquialisms running through my mind … running through my mind even counts:
I’ve got to get this out of my system.
I’m going to let my freak flag fly.
You better shape up or ship out.
I’m not going to cut you any slack.
You’re hanging on by the skin of your teeth and/or you’re skating on thin ice.
You’re about to go down in flames.
I’m gonna come out swinging and let the chips fall where they may.
Ha! and I am just a yappy chihuahua. Protecting my pup. And Big B squared is talking me off the ledge and laughing his a$$ off. I am swearing like a sailor and making up phrases of my own … like why settle for vanilla when you can have freaking chocolate with freaking rainbow sprinkles!!! You blanketity, blank, blank. Yippee-ki-yay motherfucker. Can’t you just picture Bruce Willis?!? Die Hard fans, I know YOU can. Lol!
Dang that feels freaking fantastic! and I reached my goal, to get this out of my system … for NOW. Time for some vino.
Still on the count down. Nerves are jangling and to distract myself I’m obsessing over that which I cannot control. You can’t live someone else’s life. That’s for sure. Deep breath in and slowly exhale. Going to crank up the tunes and rock all my cares away. 🎶🎶
