Is This A FULL MOON Day?
Now Playing: Day 790-The Final Road To Survival
OK. There must be a full moon tonight or something because WOW! people acting mighty odd and strange today!
Actually it must be a combination between the heat, humidity and the half-moon tonight. Hahahahaha! Honestly I had to step back this evening and say outloud, "OK. This definitely isn't me. This isn't us. Today's odd and testing day is from the actions of others." Just like my little chipmunk outside who has now made a huge tree stump condo tis best to go back in hiding until people go back to being normal and not werewolves. YIKES!
Remember I went into hiding to keep stress at bay three weeks ago and obviously I reemerged a bit too quickly. Looks like I need to get back to my peaceful retreat for quite awhile longer. This also helps my Gastroparesis and connected problems to stay in check since stress is fuel to GP fire. One would think I should had learned but lets just keep saying, "I am a work in progress."
We all got some solid sleep last night which was well needed. Oreo has still been glued to us and can't seem to get comfortable until the evening after he gets his medication. Its still hard to get used to him not being able to hear as well so we have to sometimes walk up to him so he understands us. At least it hasn't been too hard getting Littleblue back inside the house compared to the cooler weather when she would prefer to be outside all day. With late spring and summer upon us so are all the new wildlife babies. By accident watering the front landscaping we came across a nest of baby rabbits. Add to the rabbits a groundhog den near the backyard fence line and a few skunks. Now its a huge feat just keeping a close eye on Littleblue and Oreo when taking them outside. All the new wildlife babies usually start emerging this time of the year so its typical to start seeing them around the front and backyard.
Speaking of backyard...
"Just" when the honeysuckle trees and bushes were finally full and providing plenty of shade near the back patio area POOF! they disappeared!! Remember, we built a small sandbox on the patio last fall so this spring and summer once the honeysuckle trees and bushes grew back I could enjoy sitting out there since they provide lots of shade. What I didn't know was while I was sleeping the shade was slowly starting to disappear. Mind you, if I do any yard work that might go into either neighbors side of their yard I always made sure to ask them before cutting. I would assume everyone has some common courtesy to do the same but I was wrong. Instead now having a quiet shaded place to rest and put my feet in the cool sand after treatment days I might as well instead head down south to the ocean because its gone. Yes. That started my day waking up to realize my new neighbors butchered all the beautiful honeysuckle trees and bushes so they could plant grass seed?!! Say what? Another thing was I just planted grass seed for shaded areas where the bushes were and the grass was growing nice and thick. Now it just defeated the whole purpose. So did having somewhere in the backyard I could rest and enjoy after enduring Drano. I guess its that half-moon day or something because I would had thought like the prior neighbors who lived there they would had said, "Hey, since the bushes and trees are hanging over a bit I am going to just trim them back but we wanted you to see it first so we don't cut too much or everything back." Instead there is no shade anymore and if it ever grows back it will take years. Needless to say I was shocked once I walked outside to see the shade had disappeared.After the fact I was then told by one of the neighbors they decided to cut everything back this morning however shouldn't they had said something prior?.
So I might be rambling on a bit but I don't expect anyone to understand the little things those who are sick with a terminal condition enjoy because they don't walk in our shoes. They only walk in their own.
After that huge disappointing start to my day it only got more odd after some ragging lunatic woman on her cell phone texting came down the wrong way of the street going around 40mph and almost hit me head on. It was one of those situations where you see the inevitiable happening but all you can do is stop and wait. Thank goodness my Guardian Angels must had been watching over me because half an inch was all that was standing between myself and her car.
Yes. Its been a Friday the 13th, full moon kinda day. So you know what this gal has learned and will be doing from now on in this city right? Going back into hiding keeping to myself in this crazy city that way the only responsible person for any crazy or inconsiderate behavior will be myself. I haven't felt a wild hair coming on yet so I guess I am safe. Hahahahaha! Oh what a day and what an evening but as they say, "There is always tomorrow."
Thank goodness for a new day! AMEN.
