Can't dance, too fat to fly

It is the week of Thanksgiving, and I have many, many things to be thankful for. I really am trying to look for the positive right now, and my current predicament is making that a rougher job than usual, but not so hard that I don't see the many blessings in my life. I have so many. And frankly, there is ALWAYS someone, that is in far worse shape than we are, and we never have to look very hard to find them. So I DO feel blessed.

Monday again, but a short work week. I do feel for those of you in retail positions, beginning Friday, I'm sure a new kind of hell will begin. While I'm looking forward to the Christmas season, this year, I really don't know what to expect, with my upcoming surgery. I don't know if I will bounce right back and be able to do as usual, or if I will still be down. I did manage to do some of my shopping online this weekend, grown kids really aren't as fun to buy for as little ones are. I miss those days. I look forward to the day that grandkids are in the picture----maybe----and some of that fun will return. ;)

YS managed to hurt his foot quite badly yesterday morning, and he is in ALOT of pain. Nothing broken, but many tendons and ligaments messed up, he has to wait a until Tuesday and go back to the hospital, in the hopes the swelling goes down, to have an MRI, to see if surgery is in order, good heavens, it's always something with that one. I feel really bad for him, he's hurting severely. I have not talked with him since last night, but I imagine he had a very bad night, and working will be a non-issue, although that in itself IS an issue as he cannot miss work, he is still on probation, as he is new. Sigh. I worry myself to death and it does me no good. Yes, I know, don't tell me not to, there is no way I can stop. So....

It was a very quiet, (and boring) weekend, but I did sleep alot. Not that there is much merit in that. My old saying..."I can sleep when I'm dead" is not doing me any good right now. But I feel rested.

There are two kitty's chasing one another up and down the stairs as I write this, and it sounds like the entire house might come crashing down. This old brick place has been standing for 104 years, do you suppose that two cats can cause it's demise?

Have a good day! Out.

PS.. My title is an old saying of mine, and really doesn't mean anything. It was always an answer I used when I didn't know what else to say. I thought I should clear that one up before the questions were asked.

If you feel the positivity slipping out, than I'd be happy to take it over for you -Soul and I will hold up the positive chart until after you've slept some of it off.

Best wishes to a quick heal for your son. TO be a mom and worry..so the worrying only increases I take it?

I like that..sleep when I die..that's how I look at life..course, today, I slept in for the first time in months.

Happy SHITTY monday!
How's that for positive?
Always,
Crusty~

Loved the title, btw. Gosh your house is old. They don't make them sturdy like that anymore. Well, your weekend might have been boring, but your body probably loved the rest.

I hope your son is feeling better today. What a pain to get hurt and all the aftermath of it.

Hope your Monday is a good one.

Mornin' Jamie! Sometimes boring and restful is the best thing we can do for ourselves. I know it takes all your energy to gear up for another Monday. LOL at your cats racing on the stairway. Mine used to run the length of the kitchen floor - then when they applied their brakes, they'd go skidding into the kitchen wall - thump! You'd think they'd figure that one out sooner or later, but they never did. Silly cats! So sad for your son, as mom's we never do stop worrying about our kids and their lives, never. It comes in the Mom "job description". Just three work days, hallelujah, hang in there Sweetie!

Gypsy said...

Sleeping a lot sounds like the PERFECT weekend to me....lol. I think you are amazing that you can still see the positives in spite of all the negatives swirling around your heels at the moment. But you are right, there IS always someone worse off. Hope you and your son start getting some healing real soon and enjoy your short work week.

Portia said...

YAY for restful weekends and short work weeks! You're pretty good at those little catch phrases, seems like I've heard that one a million times, even though I haven't. Sorry to hear about YS' foot. I hope it heals quickly! It is always something isn't it? Now that one I grew up with:)

The Real Mother Hen said...

Now I'm reading your blog.
Since I'm such an important person, ahem, there is another reason for you to feel blessed.

DITTO ALLLLL THAT!!! :)

If you have any clue what to buy for young men...please do tell!!
For the love of God!

I am stumped this year, worse than ever before. The thrill IS gone.
I need a grand daughter.:)))

All this "shopping for men for 27 years "
is so stale ....I'm crumbed up like a mouth full of peanut butter . And I LIKE to shop.

I hope you and your son heal up like miracles.

BTW , loved that title and totally understood it, no questions needed to be asked.
LOVE IT!
