Fretful Friday

I have been in a bit of a funk, as well as a bit of a tizzy, so I forgot about 'Thankful Thursday". I must admit I wasn't feeling very thankful yesterday, but rather sad and irritable instead.

I am probably more fretful than anything at this time. So much is happening in the world, none of it good, and my own life feels disordered and out of sorts. If one is to dwell in this for too long it becomes self-indulgent and of no positive use. But I think a brief stay in the mindset I currently have is not a bad thing. So, I don't feel a compelling need to put on a happy face and soldier on. I am content feeling a bit blue and depressed and will come out of it when I'm ready. I'm sorry for the content for those who read this, but I'll come around soon enough. Until I do, I think everything I think will be shaded in gray.


  1. Oh sorry today has been hard on you. I have had plenty of fretful days and the good news is that they seem to pass. You have been through a great deal lately... Thinking of you ... Ash

  2. It is hard for people who don't have the same interaction and connection to their animals to understand the effect it has when you do. It's like losing a family member, because they are a family member. So it's natural that I am blue and mourning the loss of Bill. I will come out of it, but I'm still sad. I do have the other three characters to brighten my day and I'm glad for that. : )

  3. I didn't mean you couldn't understand, just a general statement.


I really appreciate the concept and sentiment behind awards, but I cannot participate in them anymore. I have too may and I have not got the time to devote to participating properly. To all who have honored me, I am grateful but I don't have seven more things to tell anyone about myself! And I'm a terrible passer-oner.
