Public entry Retirement
November 02, 2018 @ 02:09:44 pm
Well it's been two weeks since I officially retired. Now I'm trying to get my ducks lined up. Of course it's rained most of the time and I'm having difficultly changing my sleep schedule. Working 11 years on graveyard will do that. I've tried staying up til 9pm but still I wake around midnight. Tried going back to sleep but all I do is roll around and fluff up my blasted pillow.
I know I'm just whining when it's really just small stuff. I'm don't rich but I really don't have to worry about finances and then I find out my neighbor lives on $700. a month on social security. I really don't know how she does it. And here I am sniveling. Geez just Deal With It Terre!!!

Public entry It will be two weeks
December 25, 2012 @ 07:17:02 am
tomorrow, December 25th, since my eldest son died. I can't seem to cry. I'm afraid that if I start I won't be able to stop.
He was only 44. It was an apartment fire. They found him on the sofa in the frontroom. If you're aware of a fire wouldn't you be by a door or window? I think that's what has really saved me from losing it. (Please if anyone responds to this please don't tell me I'm wrong.)
Haven't heard from the coroner yet. They had to use his dental records. He's had the same dentist since he was 12. Except for the time he was in the Army. So why is it taking so long?
My two granddaughters want to put his ashes in Puget Sound. I'm not sure if that's legal. Will have to find out.
I wish I believed in a heaven.

Public entry Where I've been and haven't!
January 27, 2012 @ 10:44:49 pm
This is my first journal entry so right now I'm in the State of Confusion.. not sure if I've done this correctly!!

I have been in many places, but I've never been in Cahoots.
Apparently, you can't go alone. You have to be in Cahoots with someone.

I've also never been in Cognito. I hear no one recognizes you there.

I have, however, been in Sane. They don't have an airport; you have to be driven there.
I have made several trips there, thanks to my friends, family and work.

I would like to go to Conclusions, but you have to jump, and I'm not too much on physical activity anymore.

I have also been in Doubt. That is a sad place to go, and I try not to visit there too often.

I've been in Flexible, but only when it was very important to stand firm.

Sometimes I'm in Capable, and I go there more often as I'm getting older.

One of my favorite places to be is in Suspense!
It really gets the adrenalin flowing and pumps up the old heart!
At my age I need all the stimuli I can get!

And, sometimes I think I am in Vincible but life shows me I am not!

I have been in Deeps*** many times. The older I get, the easier it is to get there.
