I fell down but I'm not out

Monday, October 07, 2013


It's been all I can do just to get out of bed some days but I have things/people to look after so I do

Haven't been sleeping very much or very well

Have seemed to lost interest in most everything over the last month or so

Haven't been keeping up with Facebook or Spark

Been putting on weight because ... NOT TRACKING = WEIGHT GAIN (for me)

Haven't even really been taking care of household business the way I should

JUST BEEN GOING THROUGH THE MOTIONS!

---------- BUT ----------

THIS NEEDS TO STOP!!!!!

I think I'm starting to feel just the tiniest bit of of motion - a wee bit of a spark you might say

NEVER GIVE UP - NEVER SURRENDER - NEVER SAY DIE !!!!

    Hey Lynn,
Finally getting over here to see what's new with you - and - no surprise - I find what's new with you is the same as what's old with me. Actually, it's what's old for both of us, I think. I won't elaborate on that here cuz I know there's no need. WE understand so very well where our "I don't really give a damn" attitude stems from. Well, actually it comes from more than one place most days, but there is a dominate source from which flows our daily outlook on life and our determination, or lack there of, to truly live it. Got us a ball and chain around our leg and it is mighty, mighty heavy. Sadly, too, it is, for the most part, invisible to others ... and as such, creates a mystery in their minds as to why we are the way we are ... and why we aren't the way we should be. And that ball and chain ... well, obviously, it follows us every where we go. Even sleeps us with at night. No, usually lies awake with us at night feeding us thoughts, constantly, same kind of thoughts over and over again, making sure that we never escape them. Ball and chain has a name, too. Well, goes by a lot of names and all of them impact us in one way or another. Mostly in a way that is not favorable.

That you are able to do all that you do while dragging it around daily is quite remarkable. But just because it is remarkable does not take away from the burden of it being there. And the weirdest thing of all and the one thing so difficult to explain is how guilty we feel for wanting to be free of it.

PS. And just in case anyone reads this and thinks this is about spouses - WRONG! (even though they are like a ball and chain) ;-)

    Sorry that you are in such a tough spot, but the fact that you haven't given up is all that matters. I understand how you feel. Big Hug....** You sure do have a lot of exercise equipment...you will have an awesome place to work out with Hey Steve. You might have to lock him in there until he works out...but...it would be for his own good! You have a lot of good ideas on what you want to accomplish for someone who is just going through the motions. When I mope, I do so little that when I get going again, I get overwhelmed by all the things I didn't do. Even when you are down, you have a sense of humor about it..."and I do as I dam well please..." so take that attitude and say enough already...I am not going to allow me to do this to me. You are such a good person. You are kind and caring and loving. Funny and multi- talented..and a bad ars with power tools. I think that you are awesome! So...hang in there, we will make it through, and if things collapse I know where your water supply is located. I have plenty of baby wipes and coffee! Love you no matter what! emoticon emoticon

    Oh Lynn ...Lynn, Lynn,
The pictures are so endearing, and your Dad's smile is like a mirror reflecting his heart. I can see and I can feel the love there.

And that song ... How precious that song is ( I had never heard it before!) and what a tribute! I am sending it on to my sister and my nieces. My own Dad passed away in September 2007 - September 5th. I was with him when he died - the only one with him at the time and have never stopped missing him. I miss him so very much.

I send you good thoughts this day and understand so very well the heartache of losing your Father.
I hope they are both dancing in the sky...
Love ya

Something wierd but kinda cool Steve showed me on Facebook

Five dollar bill shows the twin towers, Ten dollar bill shows after the planes collided, Twenty dollar bill shows the building collapsing, Fifty dollar bill shows the dust and the smoke, One Hundred dollar bill shows a new beginning...The monies are all shaped like Airplanes... What a Coincidence huh!!!

    May God help us learn from 12 years ago and remember that while evil is always around we can find grace within and move past it.

I didn't lose anyone specifically that day but my heart goes out to those who did and I am so glad my plane was delayed that day...

Rise Up! - Rock the World and Prove them Wrong!

Monday, September 09, 2013

youtu.be/Cc5_XB1jQ_4


This one's for the beaten down
The ones who lost their rock and roll
Rise up you lost ones, claim your crown
You were born to rock inside your soul

Welcome misfits, orphans, all
The ones who feel they don't belong
You were made to rock, so stand up tall
Go rock the world and prove them wrong

Chorus:
Rock what you got
Rock what you got
Don't ever let them make you stop
Rock what you got
Light up the lot
No one can rock the way you rock

This one's for originals
Who strike out towards the great unknown
Fear not the missteps, take the falls
The rock you find will be your own

Chorus:
Rock what you got
Rock what you got
Don't ever let them make you stop
Rock what you got
Light up the lot
No one can rock the way you rock (x2)

This one's for the beaten down
Who gave up on their rock and roll
Lift your eyes from what drags you down
You were born to rock inside your soul

Chorus:
Rock what you got
Rock what you got
Don't ever let them make you stop
Rock what you got
Light up the lot
No one can rock the way you rock (x3)


Rock What You Got - Superchick

    Hey,
How did I miss this?
Oh well, it was meant to be. I mean, me getting this later than sooner.
OK, here's why:
I have expressed a few times here at SP how much I like to dance, in spite of the fact that I can't dance, (as in not well - Not well at all).So, I got this wedding coming up on October 12th (nephew's wedding on husband's side) and I figured for the longest time now that, as usual, regardless of the fact that I can't dance, I would dance my arse off at the wedding. I mean, like I hit the dance floor the second the music starts and I don't leave until all music stops and I find that everyone has left the building.
BUT ....
Lately, like in the last several weeks, depression over EVERYTHING in my life right now as taken over my soul and in turn has caused me to consider NOT dancing at the wedding. Like my heart is not in it ..... PLUS (and this ties so well into the song) I've been thinking that I'm not good enough to even be on the dance floor.

Dang! I hate depression!

OH, but now I have this song and video rockin' in me head and it has awaken the dancing fool in me ... the fool who could care less what others might think or say ---- I gotta rock the night away!!!
AND ........ as ol' Frankie would say, at the end of the night I'll know,
"I DID IT MY WAY"
