Hold my heart with care
It is fragile
Hold it close to your heart
Let them beat en masse
An affirmation of life
How long will they beat?
It is despairing to me
As I realize it won’t last
Let us enjoy this time
This moment together
Nothing else matters
The world may end today
Or tomorrow…who knows?
No one knows
Only God knows
He keeps his secrets well
One of my guy friends made my day. I found this message on my facebook,
“You’re very Pretty, smart and fun so don’t settle for less than the best!!!!”
Don’t be afraid to compliment someone, as they just might need it, especially now that the holidays are just around the corner.

I am SO not in the mood for Christmas. I’m in a deep blue funk and can’t seem to get out of it. I even tried watching “A Christmas Story”, the classic which is played every year (with little Ralph Parker, 1983), but still I was not able to shake off my lingering gloom.
It doesn’t help that the temperature has once again dropped to minus degrees, which tends to make me want to act like a hibernating bear and stay put in the house. The dreaded long winter here is looming on my mind, making me wonder, “will I gain another five or ten pounds again this year?”. By the way, I really wish they would hurry up and invent that miracle “fat burning pill”.
I forced myself to make my homemade salsa to give to co-workers and friends. Something I usually like doing.
Maybe I am subconsciously worried about the crazy Mayan prediction that is just a few days away. If they are right, I am going to be sooooo perturbed, as I am scheduled to get out of this place which is colder than a penguin’s derriere, for about a week. I REALLY need this break away as it is so dry here, I also feel like an itchy bear cub. All these things compounding the urgency for some relief from the constant cold.
Why the hell did I move here? Oh, yeah, a job. That is a whole other story.
If I don’t get my “fun time” in some warmth….I will really get bitchy (and I will probably look and act like a grumpy bear).
No wonder people here get “cabin fever”, where they go stir crazy from being inside and it is dark all the time. I see those “lamps” for sale, to help people with this weird condition (to try and keep the insanity at bay). I guess they work.
I could really use some of that “global warming” here…that would help with my sanity. Not too much though, as I moved from “hell”, where it was hot ALL the time.
I need a happy medium please. That is all I am asking for (well, that and please don’t let the world end on December 21st).
