This Time Tomorrow

art card aceo
Countdown- feeling lost 10; eating a boatload of Cadbury Mini Eggs 9; picking up the Basil and liberally pouring it into the pot when it was supposed to be Parsley 8; thinking about shutting down 7; letting someone's evil backstabbing get to me for a bit 6; the computer not working for a few days even after forking over a chunk of money to fix it 5; eye problems 4; avoiding the scale 3; finding a new tumor on Lucy 2; deciding this is all water under the bridge 1.  My week in review.

Now, instead of sloshing about in self pity I want to share some posts with you that have just recently turned up in my Dashboard Reading List.

There was a blog I haven't seen updated for months and all of a sudden 45 posts appeared in one day.  Other blogs aren't updating at all.  A few blogs I never heard of and didn't follow have been appearing.  Believe me, I don't want to read about fish species and where to catch them. It may be that I will have to check out the readers that others are switching to once Google Reader disappears- and I don't use that now.

So, this time tomorrow, I will be happy to read about other's good fortune, the presents received, the babies yet to be born, the new adventures and the skills learned.    Sometimes when circumstances implode it makes almost everything around look bleak, even when it's not.  A break, a step back, breathing, separating from the source of conflict and soon enough I'm ready to jump back in.  Not always immediately, sometimes longer than is good, but eventually, as there must be some DNA in me that likes the challenge.  

Are you naturally self confident or do you have moments where you waver?




I'm sure we all have those moments; the key thing is to press on and keep doing what we know is right -- God works all things out for good. And eating a boatload of Cadbury Mini Eggs helps :)

Gloria, those tough weeks are always hard when you going through them, but they are only temporary. Each day will get better, and over time you will see the rainbow at the end of the tunnel. Thanks for linking my post today!

Dear Gloria, I really hope things improve for you soon, they will. I believe stuff happens to make us stronger. Unfortunately, sometimes it's a boatload of stuff at once. Cheers and hugs.

Oh, my gosh I am so sorry to hear that about your dear Lucy. And your eyes, they were doing so much better. I am glad you found those uplifting blog posts to read and I will check them out. You know, sometimes it is hard to just 'let it go',especially when the person who hurt you,well, is someone you thought was a friend or worse family and hopefully time will heal the hurt.
Oh, now onto some Bloggy technical stuff. Check out Feedly. I love it. It was so easy I just imported my Google Reader with their easy peasy steps and it has been smooth sailing :)
