- I became sick about 8 days ago and it has worsened each day. I have been on antibiotics that make me want to hurl a bit. I'm hurlish.
- We did get a new air conditioner, finally. My family is speaking to me once again. It is huge, extremely efficient and a bit pricey. Now...how to pay for it quickly?!
- I am no savvy investor, but I have money in the stock market. I could use some funds to pay for the air conditioner. Been watching the news lately??
- I have been thinking a bit about the show "Lost". Do you remember how they were all stranded, stuck on the same island, yet also at odds with each other, in divided camps? Sometimes allies, sometimes not? My family and I recently reunited with some of "the others". It went well. At some point, you realize that "freedom is just another word for nothing left to lose" and it requires less energy to get along than to hang on to frustrations from the past. Perhaps we will all live happily ever after. It only took the Oceanic castaways six years. Maybe we can do it in just one.
