Feeling a bit better

Lynne Robinson, Hewitt, New Jersey
Thanks to all of you for your caring thoughts and wishes. It was like getting a caring cyberhug in return. I am feeling a bit better and not as strung out. I have to get a handle on my emotions and not allow the actions of other people to contort my life so. Really, should I be making myself miserable over events that I cannot change and that are beyond my control? Wasting precious moments of life being depressed? I think not, but it’s so hard not to fall into the same pit time after time. Maybe I can blame it on my cayenne temper from the Italian side of the family. Then again, maybe not ...  I am going to try and do a better job of keeping emotions in check.

The stress brought on another scary incident of sleepwalking on the night we learned about the cancelled contract on our Colorado house. I haven’t had one in a few years, and they are creepy. I found myself opening doors in the hallway outside our bedroom, looking for the bathroom which of course is not in that direction. I even picked up the gate we lean against our bedroom door opening to keep the dogs in with us at night and placed it across the stairs instead. Of course, I didn’t realize it until morning dawned and it was time to go downstairs that I had even done it. I don’t remember going through the gate the first time, but I do remember fussing with it on my “return” trip. I don’t like sleepwalking!

In the meantime, our weather has been delicious—cool, sunny and non-humid. I think that’s about to change this week with temps in the 90s and the return of humidity. Pool time! The day lilies that surround the pool are now blooming (see above), the phoebes are adding to their nest in anticipation of a new crop of babies, we now have a red fox prowling the neighborhood, and I have a wonderful supportive husband who understands my dark, stormy moods. All in all, life is pretty good. So what if we go broke?

About

Welcome, I'm Lynne. You know me better as a 'new' Jersey Girl. But now I've moved once again, this time to North Carolina. Here I write about my thoughts, good food, and of course, dogs.
