Not much to write about
I don't like to write when life is out of balance and the negatives outweigh the good things. As such, this place is pretty stagnant. Our cat of ten years died a very horrible death a week ago and I can't get that out of my head. Our oven has been hanging in there for a couple of years, sometimes refusing to shut off. It's recently decided to just burn the hell out of everything. There's no money to replace it so that's not good. I have to get new glasses and wear them full time as opposed to just for reading. That's not good either. A dear old family friend is in the hospital. They moved her to Des Moines so I cannot go see her now. See? Nothing really good to report.
I did catch up with an old high school friend that I hadn't seen in over 20 years. That was nice if not hurried because of having to move along to get the kid to his ortho appointment. Put that in the negative column as next month I will have to pull a huge amount of money out of thin air to start on orthodontics again.
Have I ever mentioned how I hate October? My dad died in October 7 years ago. One of my very best friends died in October. My cat died in October. Trees shed their leaves, grass goes dormant. It's just a depressing time so I'll probably not be back to this space until the snow flies. Snow makes me happy, ya know?
Oh, I might join a womens Bible study group. That could be really good. Even through all of life's crap, God is good.
