Mumbles … Wrinkle

“The best laid plans of mice and men…” you know the saying. I was doing so well for a while with keeping up in prompts and reading and now I am two to three days behind. Will you forgive me? I could come up with a million different reasons but let’s just say that life got in the way this time.

Today I am writing and looking out the window onto another grey day, but at least so far it is a dry grey day. We’ve had rain and snow the last couple of days leaving behind a lot of mud and mess. But I can’t really complain, as there are some places still buried deep in snow. At least here in Iowa, snow in March never lasts very long.

Too many grey days in a row can get me down. That is a part of the life that got in the way. Depression can cause a major wrinkle in the plans I have. I am learning to accept that aspect of the disease. This week I have had to cancel plans three times including a friend’s bachelorette party I was looking forward to. But if I have to crawl there I WILL make it to her wedding.

It is time to pour myself another cup of coffee and read and write some more. I promise I will eventually get to your posts. In the meantime I hope you all have a wonderful day/night!

Happy and Grateful – Day 117

We have reached the month of April and I am still on course to post daily with my happiness and gratitude I have found.  Please join in if you feel like doing this too by sharing in the comments or on your own blog.  There is so much to be happy and grateful for.

Well the forecast for today kind of fell apart… well it was too little sun, too late.  When I was out and hoping to hit the park it was still grey and gloomy and barely 40°F.  So I didn’t get my trip to the park but by about 5 pm the sun started to shine and it did warm up a little bit, but not much.

My sinuses were a little more bothersome today, but with allergy season upon us I fight that right along with the cold.  I heard back from one of my friends I emailed and got a short text from a friend.  Sometimes it is just nice to know there are others out there that might be thinking of you… or maybe that is just me.

So today was another pretty calm day.  I did however fix a problem on my Dad’s computer so that is taken care of.  I am happy I got that done.  I am grateful for the friends who “talked” to me today in text and email.  Helps to not feel quite so alone during the day.  Now it is time for a glass of orange juice and some sleep.  Good night all!

Happy and Grateful – Day 92

Today was another cloudy day with a little bit of rain… they say that by Thursday we might see the sun again.  I can’t wait!  The weather is so gloomy and the rain gives me pain but I am still looking for good things.

The best thing I did today was some writing.  I wrote to a friend and I did some poetry besides my daily prompt poem.  I felt I needed to clear my head and heart a bit and writing always helps.  And having WordPress is good to give me a guaranteed outlet each day.  I am happy that I have time to blog and grateful that my brain has been pretty clear of fibro fog lately to write pretty well.

I hope everyone has a good start to their week!  (((HUGS)))
