As I struggle out loud, I just want you to know how much I appreciate your encouragement and wise words each time.
I know they are sincere.
I guess I wanted to say that because I am really not done talking about it and everything that goes along with it. Little did you know that my last post was a way for me to organize my thoughts and prepare for more.
Please don't feel obligated to comment every time in regards to my wallowing and whining. I am really not looking for sympathy over and over and over again! I hope it will never seem that way, although my secret fear is that is how it will be perceived. I think this is just my way of journaling myself through it all. I know I will look back one day and need to remember.
Why not journal privately? I am not sure. Maybe because so much of the time, despite some revelations here and there, I (we?) hide behind the window of this place. I share a lot, but some things get pushed back because that might be too real, too revealing, too ugly. I try to pretend that surely nobody is having it as rough as me and to put myself out there too much would reveal my greatest weaknesses. Probably some of the very same weaknesses one or two of you have.
That being said!
OH HOW I MISS SUPER TARGET!!
And everything else you can imagine might come with a town big enough for a Super Target!
It takes me 10 minutes to get from one end of the town to the other. And that's even when I hit a few red lights!
Oh, but we ARE getting a second Sonic in town. The cries of the people have been heard! Now, so many won't suffer through having to drive clear.across.town for their Sonic pleasure!
Ok, I am not totally deprived of civilization here. I might be implying a slight exaggeration.
But I am not too far off the mark.
Just yesterday, while popping into a grocery store to pick up a few things, my kids and I experienced a true beef nightmare!
Nicely packaged, right before our very eyes, was a lovely assortment of....
SLICED COW HOOVES!
I rest my case!
