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!

Hope all had happy holidays. I personally can't wait for January 2 to arrive so all the freaking hoopla is over and life as we know it returns to a form of normalcy. Things are peaceful right now and I am loving it. Looking for a new place to live is always a drag, but it has to be done. I do know I like the community that I currently reside in so I won't be straying far. K checked herself into detox and than rehab. I am so proud of her. She is regaining the support of her family which she has missed like crazy. Like anything in life you just have to be ready. She is currently in black-out phase, so I haven't spoke with her yet. Last on my mind this morning? The world did not end as expected. I don't think that we will know the precise date when the planet says ENOUGH. Even my late husband believed this was the year. So many folks were wrong. I personally am glad that life is continuing. There are still many things on my bucket list, shit, my life list. It's never been easy, this crazy journey. That's ok. I like a challenge. Sitting here typing with my dog taking care of warming my feet, I know I am blessed. We are all blessed. Many people don't realize their blessings. As I always say, it's the little things. I don't know what twist or turn the life journey has in store for me now, but I shall ride it out and things are going to be ok. Peace!
