Mad World

The world just seems to be speeding toward the finish line, and all we can do is hang on for the ride.  Watching my country being destroyed from within is a slow action train wreck.  I'm afraid to look, and afraid to cover my eyes.

The world does go on, though.

Work is progessing. I got my official lisence a few days ago, which means I am now an insurance agent!  I never would have guessed this is where my life would take me, but I'm happy where I am.  I get up in the morning and say, "I get to go to work today."

Although yesterday I did probably one of the stupidest, most foolish things I've ever done.  I don't know how I did it, or why, but I ended up taking two Lunesta instead of the two Prednisone yesterday morning.  I got to work and couldn't figure out why I was so tired.  Then I realized I had the funny taste in my mouth Lunesta causes and was horrified.  Luckily, my boss was very understanding and my co-worker drove me back home so I could pass out for a few hours, then my brother drove me back to work so I could finish the last two hours.  I'm very lucky that it wasn't something more serious and that I didn't hurt anyone.

Even though my medication is separated by time of day, I still somehow managed to mess it up, so I moved the Lunesta bottle into the drawer with my rarely used meds.  Good grief.

And then today, I took the puppy in to get spayed.  The poor thing is uncomfortable, but she's not crying like the other dog did.  I hope she recovers quickly, and now at least I won't have to worry about more puppies.

Nothing else to really say.  I hope you are all doing well.   Be kind to each other, we're all we have right now.

The view from Canada isn't any better. I feel like a concerned neighbour watching as the guy across the street sets fire to his house. All I can do is stand there and hope the fire doesn't spread to my property and assure his kids that they can crash on my sofa bed.

Wow, glad you have as cool a boss as I seem to have! We seem to have lucked out! I have (and still am) always been terrible about remembering my meds, so I invested in one of those little plastic dealies that has the days...though I have seen am/pm ones too. Seriously, it's saved my but so many times when I thought I had taken my meds but haven't (or vice versa).


Ohh! and *gently hugs puppy* poor girl, hope she gets better soon!
