I am annoyed as one can get right now.  It has been a day of small and moderate aggravations (3 different stores not having what I am looking for, traffic so backed up I had to go a total different direction than my house to get home, chainsaws, a continuing  error at work that has been going on for 3 weeks now that could have been fixed in 2 minutes if someone had got around to doing it) All totally out of my control and now my heart is racing and my chest tight. My husband is watching the damn news which I hate so I have my headphones on listening to this over and over again so loudly I am probably making myself deaf. Better deaf than insane. (Query  – How did I end up with someone who loves the news? It is soul destroying for me. It seers into my spirit that seems to be ripping open daily.)

Here is something. I finished my bottles of shampoo and conditioner at the same time. That has never happened before in my entire life. It probably never will again.

I started this post about 3 hours ago and I am not as annoyed as I was but now I am tired and ready for bed.

  1. What?! Finished your shampoo and conditioner at the same time? Yeah, I’ve never had that happen either, and I am older than you! I am not a new person either. And my hubs is…..after awhile I tell him I have heard enough and ask him if he can turn it off or go upstairs rather than in the main part of the house to watch those dark stories. I tell him that we can’t change the big picture…..we can only change our responses, our little hula hoop of a world….I have to let God be in charge of all of that other stuff. It’s too big, too much, too dark for me to try to navigate it all. I’m there with you sister!

  2. Oh, Birdie. That was absolute, sheer heaven.
    I’ve had a hard couple of days and I needed that beauty.
    Thank you.
    Sleep well.

  3. My husband watches the hunting channel a lot. Luckily, the TV is in a room that I can avoid if I want and if I join him, he’ll change it to something I want to watch.
    You might want to put a call in to the Pope about that shampoo and conditioner thing- that might be a miracle that the church needs to investigate.
    I hope today has fewer irritations.

  4. I’ve come back to listen to the beautiful music….ahhhhhh.
    And to tell you that I friended you on FB, but it doesn’t look like it took?
    And then I sent a friend request too, but I don’t see anything there either.
    What?? do I do wrong.
    Can you try to friend me again. If indeed that was you….and you want to “friend”..? Facebook really confounds me. I always feel like I’ve gone to France and I only speak Greek…

  5. You are so smart. That music is beautiful. It’s the perfect thing to block out the news. The news has been getting to me, too. I usually like to keep up with politics, etc., but I just can’t take it anymore.

  6. I try to avoid the news too…it’s too painful to watch most days. I end up seeing the stories that are most publicized and my hubs is forever sending me links to terrible stories of death and destruction but I figure that’s enough. I don’t need to fill my mind with despair right before sleep. My dreams are vivid enough.

    Xx. Hope this week has been better for you.
