It’s 10:30 a.m. and I’m tired.
Yesterday evening I received a disturbing email from a relative. It was unsettling because its content indicated that the relative has some signs of Alzheimer’s. (Kitt, I plan on reading your Bipolar and Dementia blog post today!)
Later that night around 2:00 a.m., one of my girls woke me out of a deep-ish sleep (which in itself is extremely rare!) to tell me there was a big black spider by her bed and I needed to send it to Spider Heaven STAT!!!
When I got to her room, I found not one, but two of the creepy crawlers, plus there were two other spiders in the hallway! (Bipolar on Fire, my fellow arachnophobist, I thought of you!)
I do not like spiders!
As Dr. Seuss wrote in Green Eggs and Ham,
“I would not like them
Here or there.
I would not like them
Sorry, spiders of the world, it’s nothing personal.
At least I can look on the bright side here – at least the spiders weren’t as big as this:
Did I mention I have poison oak…the second time this summer! I guess I need to be more aware of those “leaves of three (and) let them be” once and for all!
These are small problems, well, except for the dementia issue, but I’ll be okay. When I take Lucy for her walk later this afternoon, that will give me an attitude adjustment.
As long as I keep away from the poison oak, ticks, and of course, spiders!
What is it about Alice Cooper that’s so gosh darn likable? Hmm, maybe I could dress up as him for Halloween this year!
Thanks for reading and an extra-big thanks for your encouragement over the past few weeks!!! Have a great weekend!
