I am feeling better. Getting my sea legs back. J is bringing me up my new (used) Honda Civic tonight or tomorrow. I figure that car saved my life so I'll stick with a Honda. This one is white and 7 years newer than the previous one. These cars get excellent mileage. That's what's up for me. I see all these people with fancy SUV's and I'll I see are dollar signs regarding the gas. Call me cheap, cause I am. In this economy I have to be. I have learned a lot from being around Joe. When you are around someone who has grown up during the depression you learn a lot. Trust me. This post is going to be brief as I have some errands to take care of that I have put off. Yes, I procrastinate. No more. I have to get things in order. I'll be by all your blogs this afternoon. I hope everyone is well and happy. Don't survive, thrive my friends! Peace!

I totaled my car last night. Woke up in the hospital. They had to cut me and my clothes off to get me out of my Honda Accord. Thankfully just very bruised and scraped up. Not sharing pictures, lol. Apparently everything happened to my left side as that is the most damaged. Figures I am left handed. Typing slowly. Tina ( sis-in-law) picked me up from hospital. I cried when I heard my Bella was totaled. I cried thanking God that I was alive and that Rocco wasn't in the car. Than I came home and Tina took care of me and we talked. I realized that I have been humbled. Sometimes in life when things are going smoothly and no major bumps in the road, we forget to give thanks. We all cry to God when things are going wrong. I'm out shopping, going to lunch etc. Settled in my new place. I realized that I haven't been thanking God or anyone for my good fortune of late. Now that I am banged and bruised up I can't stop thinking. How did my car flip over the metal barrier? I have come close to death many times, why am I still alive? I realized I am happy to be alive. That maybe I need to do as I used too. Say my prayers every night, giving thanks. I have been very blessed in my lifetime. I am still a little woozy when I sit up. Just wanted to check in and tell everyone to take 3 minutes from your day and give thanks for all your blessings, no matter how big or small. Don't wait for a life endangering car accident. Peace!

Whew, what a load off my mind. In small towns like this one it's rather easy if people know you and you haven't sullied your name. I actually went to a friends house and we poured some drinks and made a toast to new beginnings and a fresh start. Life can be as sweet as it is sour at times. My current landlord just got out of detox and seems to have a good mindset. Now she has the big fight. Getting her child back. Seems when you have too many domestic calls to your home and there is a young child involved, Child Protective Services gets involved. They came one day and chatted. The next thing we know they came the next day and removed the child from the home and placed her with her maternal grandparents. Now she is in foster care. The court hearings start this week. The gloves are off. Father against daughter and son-in-law. The dirty laundry will be aired. I lived this in my twenties and to see it replayed again is horrific. The only problem I have with moving is that Rocco is going to have to stay with J. Every single place I looked at would ask the breed of my dog and once they saw Rottweiler they said no. Rocco has spent the weekend with J and is comfortable there and I can go see him whenever I want. Yes, I am weird. I have been talking sweet nothings to my dog and reassuring him that all is well. J is the one who brought him up here 5 months ago and he loves the dog too. So I have tried to make the best of the situation and think that I have done a good job. I am a fixer of problems but have grown weary. I am making plans to take some college courses and that is very exciting. This is the year that I am going to take life and expand every horizon. Why not? We only go round this globe once...so I don't want to waste the trip. Peace!
