Keeping My Eyes On The Horizon

Man, this is absolutely adorable.  Good find Keith.

I can't decide if this medicine is actually working, or if I'm just making the normal cycle out of the dark place.  Either way, it's good to be feeling a little bit better.

Since moving to Texas, I've made more dear friends that feel like family to me than I have ever known in my life.  I am very blessed in that respect.  You can't choose your family, but you damn sure can choose which friends become your family.  I also still have daily contact with my bestie from junior high and high school.  So grateful and blessed that we reconnected as well.

I am also eternally grateful to all of you out there that tolerate my sudden and unexplained quiet times, times when I don't reach out and hold up my end of the friendship string.  Then we pick right back up where we left off, no questions or hurt feelings or anything.  You know who you are, thank you.  It's a good feeling to have that security that you have people in your life, some you've not even met in person, or have only met a few times, others you've known forever, but people that will welcome you with open arms when you can swim to the surface.

Papoose #1 is coming home Sunday and staying till Friday.  That was an awesome surprise for a Squaw and a Papoose #2 that miss their Papoose #1 so much.  I will be taking a couple of early afternoons off to spend some extra time with her while she is here.  Not going to bother taking whole days off, considering the talent the Poose has for sleeping in.  She's exhausted from taking on WAY too much this past year, and will desperately need some well earned rest.

I am feeling froggy and am going to look up some parts online today, see about trying to repair some of the stuff that needs done on the jalopy myself.  This could get interesting.  Sure do wish MW hadn't blown the Explorer up, so I'd have a spare go faster in case I jack this little project up.  Ah well, who needs a safety net???  I'm gonna give it hell.

Where the hell has Jar been lately???  I guess I need to post some Garth Brooks for him on here.

Or maybe a cat dressed up in baby clothes, he loves that.

Ok, I'm going to get to work on this stuff over here.  Chat later, all.

  1. i'm so glad #1 is coming home... i know how much you've missed her... and it will be nice to have some down time with her...

    we all take those quiet times sometimes... it's just the cycle of life...

    as for fixing the jalopy - YOU CAN DO IT! i learned long ago that mechanics is really not all that complicated really... it's just a matter of learning the parts and what they do... amazes me that a man is the one who designed the engine... seems more like the strategies of a woman's mind that put something like that together...

    have fun with the pooses and a great weekend too!

    i'm wearing my "eat me" tshirt :P
