Today has ended up being a “duh” day. I slept too much, and when I got up I simply had no idea what I should do with myself. Plus, it was rainy. It didn’t rain all day, but it did rain a bit and just enough to encourage me to stay indoors and read, play video games, play with the dogs, and, in general, just be quiet with myself. In doing these wonderful things my cell phone ended up dying, so no one called to ask me to go out – the cell dying was very much a surprise, actually.
All-in-all I would say it was a “good” day, but one where I did very little in way of accomplishing anything on my To Do list. Yes, I know tomorrow is another day with many opportunities for writing and work of varies natures. It still amazes me today has turned out the way it has, especially since, amid all the playing, there was a deep sense of something being off, amiss. Badly. Seriously. Perhaps dangerously so.
With such a feeling the only thing I know to do is call people. All of my sisters are just fine, and all of their families, though one particular family member I feel is being extremely stupid and certifiable, crazy – not one of my sisters or brothers-in-law I would very much like to point out – but there is nothing I can do about them. They have made their choices, their decision, and is following through. *sigh* However, my friends have not fared so well today. One friend has gone into the hospital because she was stung numerous times by bees; another friend is back in the hospital because his blood pressure has been very low, then very high, repeat the very low…. You get the gist.
After discovering all of this I think tomorrow I am sitting myself down in front of the computer, or even just grabbing a notebook and a pen and writing where the ending of the story will be a happy one, no matter what trials may come the hero’s way, or heroine’s. Sometimes you just need someone to overcome horrific odds and survive and end up being happy to help you feel better about the world. It doesn’t matter the straits and problems they go through, but knowing they will survive and be better for their survival helps looking at this topsy-turvy world and saying, “We have a chance, a slim chance perhaps, but we can make it.”
