Twelve-ish Weeks to Go... Calling in Reinforcements...

Right now I am spooning up applesauce from a mug I stole from my mother that I actually gave her when I was five that says "#1 Mom".  The jar of applesauce is one of those three-pound guys that you actually probably didn't know existed, but they do.  We are stocked with them because that is the only thing I have been able to successfully consume over the past week and I want to drink it, bathe in it, make out with it.  Seriously, it's like that Meredith Baxter Birney movie, I forget what it's called, where her husband is mean to her and she sits on her kitchen floor and eats the entire chocolate cake.  I have vomit on my shoes and in my hair, a result of spending the last three hours getting sick in a public bathroom, and now my nose is bleeding for the second time today.  Did I mention I am at work?

Okay, so this has been an exceptionally tough day, so just now I went online and bought a Jesus book, because I literally cannot think of anything else to do to get through this.  Do you think it will work?  I'm not making fun, I'm serious.  I am not at all opposed to religion, I think it's really nice, actually, but I've never read a book that contains devotionals - I'm actually not even sure what those are, to be honest.  All I know is that none of my anti-sick medicines work, I have not slept in days, and I think it's getting to me.  Case in point:

This afternoon I was walking in a crosswalk on a busy street.  A cabbie was trying to drive through the crosswalk despite the fact that it was my turn to walk, and not his turn to drive.  I screamed at him.  He actually stopped to apologize and looked a little terrified, but it could not be helped.  Well, MAYBE it could, but whatever. 

I feel this is not entirely okay.  So that is where my new book comes in.  I think it is going to really help.  Or at least get me to stop verbally asaulting cabbies.  Win/win.

Just about 12 weeks to go...


  1. You should watch THE SECRET on Netflix. I re-watched it yesterday, and it made me feel optimistic about life.

    I'm sorry you're having such a rough go at it. I don't have any encouraging things to say which would make everything magically better, but I do think about you often and I hope it gets better before the twelve weeks is up. If not, well, at least you have a small light at the end of the tunnel. ((((HUGS))))

  2. The Secret is a MOVIE?! OMG, I will have to watch this immediately. OR reread your book, which TOTALLY made me optimistic about life! I have to do a review on Amazon ASAP! Thank you so much, you are awesome! xoxo
