The Ups and The Downs

I have been all over the map lately.

I am getting so sick of all the negativity.
It's everywhere.
All over online and in my home.

Online people are just bashing everybody for everything.
And I mean everything.

It is depressing.
Even when the person seems to think they are being funny.
But, they ain't Joan Rivers and it ain't funny.

My husband is not what you would call a content person.
He always sees the negative.
And that can be wearing.

And of course now he is having kidney problems.
They have had to change his blood pressure meds a couple times and take him off his water pill.
Hopefully that will stop them from getting worse.
But, whatever damage has been done is still there.

We are almost done paying off the truck.
End of the year.
Then we can attack other bills and put some money back.
That will be nice.
And if I want to buy a pair of pants, I don't have to mentally calculate whether it is doable.

That's the downside of getting a lower paying job when you still have the bills of a higher paying job.

The pullets will start laying soon.
Not sure how long the roosters are going to last around here.
Dewey could be meaner, but he is still a bit of a turd.
Moe is more laid back.

My diet is still not back to where it should be.
I mean, I am still not eating gluten. I am adverse to stabbing abdominal pains.
But, my beverage choices aren't so great.

Sometimes I just don't care.
I really don't.

I need to get back to posting more regularly on both of my blogs.
But, I don't know if that is going to happen.

I feel better when I post.
Finding the time is hard.
Making the time is hard too.

Lately all I really feel like posting is about crap that I just hate.
But. I don't want Welcome to Me to turn into a blog I don't want to read.

I am trying to find my focus.
I'm not sure were it went.

  1. So true about online bashing, it is sad. Good feeling when you will get the truck paid off. Hope you find your focus soon.

  2. Bashing is done everywhere, sure plenty of sobs in every corner of the internet. Amazing how one can differ from opinion or state a case without name calling anymore. Hopefully things start to go on the upswing for you.

  5. Well, I'm glad you're here.
    That and a nickel will get you a cup of coffee.
    Come to think of it, a microscopically small cup of coffee.

    1. Al, I don't drink coffee. I'll take a cup of cocoa for 5 cents though.

  7. Negativity can be bad for the health, but it can be fun to read as long as you don't let it bring you down. But you're right--there is a lot of negativity going around. Maybe it's a reflection of the real state of the world though. That's what I figure.

  8. Boy I hear you, regarding all the "online bashing". For me, it's Facebook. I have a huge extended family of cousins and it's due to this election. I've protected myself, and unsubed from all the political commentary groups from, all sides. I just don't want to hear it. Everyone is so hateful on both sides. Yeah like, with their attitudes, we really are going to have world peace.

    1. Debby, I have blocked so many sites and pages over there that I don't see much from some people anymore.
      I really miss being able to have a different opinion on anything and not be called names.
