Hello kids!

It’s been a minute, hasn’t it? I do love the illustration of my last post which was written way back in November 2020. Not to diss My Many Readers, but I daresay everyone has enough to read and ponder already, so probably no one has missed ye olde blog. Be that as it may, I did have a dream this morning where I was just trying to get home, but the dang street and the equally dang street signs went round and round in circles. It was like a Bollywood film set in a city in India, with people teeming, buildings looming, and my home and street eluding me. Finally woke myself up out of that to discover that my credit union played an April fools joke on me by deducting a $4000 check out of my account twice! Except it wasn’t a joke and they really did it.

In the meantime, Mr. ClearingSpace4Joy was off at the dentist getting his front tooth extracted. Yes, his front tooth. Seems that having a crown on a tooth for 50 years can sometimes make the tooth weaken and last evening he knew it was coming out. I let the Tooth Fairy know to be on the lookout, but I think he left the tooth at the dentist’s office. Came home with stitches in his mouth, an upper lip that doesn’t work right, a temporary bridge, and lots of pain. I reminded him that snitches get stitches but he didn’t think that was funny.

So I’ve been thinking about what I want to be when I grow up. But nothing comes to mind. I’ve tried a few things and didn’t like them, but even though I am a few years north of 29, I still think it’s possible to come up with some ideas. However, my Pesky Depression continually tells me that I’ll never amount to anything. Thank you, Pesky Depression. One thing I do think I’d like to be is a writer. Whether or not I have anything to say that more than a dozen people would want to read remains to be seen. And “a dozen” might be a little <optimistic> (wrong word but I’m waiting for the right word to enter stage right).

Today’s blog post is just my way of letting Pesky Depression know that it’s not winning today. It tried, bless its heart. I’ve committed to writing 750 words on 750words.com every day in the month of April. I love the first of the month, like I love Monday, and a new year, and any time there is the possibility of starting anew. This year started off pretty rough with a sad and traumatic event happening out of the blue, and this month also started off a bit rough (thanks, credit union!) but that doesn’t mean it has to continue that way. All I have is the present moment, and in this present moment, I choose to be a writer. Thanks for reading.

  1. Hi Susan So wrapped to see you back blogging and pushing back on that pesky depression. Good for you!

    I enjoy reading your blogs very much.

    Poor Greg – I hope the healing of his mouth is swift and he can get a new tooth soon otherwise you might need to buy him an eye patch to go with the smile 🤗 Love to you all. Deb PS just a quick update on us. Graes and my divorce finalised mid last year and everything financially settled. Last year was big and messy and I was very happy to see the back of it to be honest. Grae is not doing too well at the moment as the drinking has really taken over his life to the point no- one knows what to do to help him including all his family. I spend Wed nights with his mum (who misses Pa terribly. She is well but struggles badly with loneliness. We get on well and the family (incl Grae) are happy that I am available and happy to be there with her as they are all feeling the pressure to be her everything. Tim and Ellie are well (sort of – as both struggling with their relationship with their Dad and watching his life spiral as badly as it has)I hate see them going through this snd also Grae but at the same time I know (after counseling) there is really nothing I can do now other than look after myself and that will help me to be there for them when they really need me. Anyway I hope all is well with your family Susan? Families are complicated wonderful things aren’t they 🤗 I look forward to reading your next blog. xx
