Checking In

Well hello and good morning strangers. I simply had nothing to write about lately and just took a break from the laptop, doing "stuff", ie, errands, paperwork etc. The banalities of life. When I got back from Joe's house, my older son arrived the night Hurricane Sandy hit. Sigh, only him. Good news- He is off heroin, I do believe. Not so good news- He has replaced his old love with a new one. Good old legal alcohol. He was here for 3 nights. Drank every single day. He is a chatty drunk. It got to the point where my head literally hurt, one of the main reasons I haven't been wr iting. I took him home Friday morning. I love him but he mentally drains me. My roommates can't get over how different my two boys are. Everyone is talking about the election. I wish there was a third candidate, lol. Not funny I know, just simply how I feel. I'm lacking that sense of excitement or anticipation that one gets when they feel the world is going to be a better place. I'm starting to think that our country is beyond repair. All the government is doing are placing band-aids on gaping, infected wounds. Voting to me reminds me of a horse race like The Preakness. Every once in awhile theres a horse thats name catches the wind (Secretariat) and the crowd just knows that the race is going to be exciting and the win historical. Sadly the surge of excitement is not in the air this election year. On another note life is good for the most part. Rocco will be 3 months old on the 8th. He has been developing his own quirky, funny personality. I love him so much. He still has a ton of growing to do if he ever wants to fit into his tremendous thunder-paws. I am learning alot about myself courtesy of Mr. Rocco. I have never gotten a dog at the age of 6 weeks. I feel like I personally gave birth...I am learning how powerful the pull of this puppy tugs at my heart. Trust, loyalty and unconditional love. It's an amazing thing. After shots, it only costs me $15.00 a month in Kibbles-n-Bits. What I get back is priceless. Sorry this turned into me babbling, but..I just wanted to check in and say hi. I also have to stop by and visit everyone's blogs and catch up.
